2015 QEII Betting Preview PT 2

It’s that key victory back at Royal Ascot that makes Gleneagles such a serious contender for this contest since Solow has already proven he can tangle with pretty much any horse in the world at the mile distance. While he is not opting for the Breeders’ Cup, Solow brings a wealth of experience and simply remains bang in form even after a lengthy season of competition this year. 


If given the option between the two many will concede that Gleneagles has more upside but some will simply assume that they will need a race after being off the track since mid-June now. However, it’s worth remembering that the horse has been successfully training up to several races and could, simply, be sitting on an absolute monster of a race here. 

For those attempting to beat the top two, they are probably looking towards the likes of Kodi Bear and the Godolphin entry Territories - who boasts a really solid recent run of form though he will have to prove that he’s able to tangle with the top two in the world at the mile distance. One thing that’s worth remembering is the fact that Territories might be well poised to capitalize on any mistakes from Solow and when you add in the fact that Gleneagles might not even run then suddenly the 9/1 price that you can lock in on him doesn’t look quite so bad at all. 

Kodi Bear was last seen capturing the Celebration Mile at Goodwood in late August and he’s trading at a 4/5 margin. He was previously spotted defeated the talented Dark Emerald in a Group 3 at Salisbury just two weeks previously. Second in the Dewhurst last year and putting together a solid body of work so far throughout this season he might be poised to make a breakthrough at just the right time. 

Territories was able to get the better of Kodi Bear when the pair tangled at Chantilly in the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat.While this contender certainly looks like a genuinely possible spoiler (not the least because he was second to Gleneagles in the Guineas) you can’t ignore the fact that Mickael Barzalona has a very poor strike rate in races at Ascot.
