Mid-June is when Royal Ascot will take place. Before then, however, there are many more races to enjoy at Ascot Racecourse. Today, for instance, there is a particularly enticing race scheduled. Sky Sports has identified a decent prospect for the horse racing nap of the day. The going should be good to firm (firm in places).
The highest profile race of the day is easily the 16:05 Stakes. A total of 13 runners will be competing to win their owners a share of the £80,000 prize fund. From the three-year-old runners, it is Limato that has been picked out as favourite at 6/4.
Those odds are relatively short odds for a field of 13. In fact, the next closest horse is the 5/1 Tendu. Beacon and Strath Burn are next up, with both receiving odds of 8/1. To recap Limato’s record, the Irish horse has been trained to win four victories from four outings by H Candy.
