Ascot: LOVE | 3:35pm King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes (Group 1) | Dom’s Pick
Arguably the biggest and most intriguing flat race of the year takes place at Ascot on Saturday and we’ve made our best bet of the day for the £875,000 contest.
Following her success here in the Prince Of Wales’s at Royal Ascot, the vote goes to Love in a fascinating clash of the ages.
Aidan O’Brien’s superstar filly made all on her seasonal debut in Berkshire last month over a less-than-ideal mile-and-a-quarter, and the step back up to 14 furlongs should be right up her street.
Probably unsurprisingly, Ryan Moore sides with her over Broome despite her stable-mate’s excellent run of recent form which culminated in a first Group 1 at Saint-Cloud last time, but the Ballydoyle rider has been in fine form in the plate of late.
He’s operating at a 39% win-rate while the selection’s handler has enjoyed a strong vein of form back across the Irish Sea.
