Follow the Rainbow for a Royal Ascot winner on Friday

The Michael Jarvis team are understandably keen on the chances of their Rainbow Peak as he lines up in the Wolferton Handicap at 4.25pm on Friday, live on BBC2.
¬
Ideally drawn in stall 16 of 16 he looks set to go off a hot favourite, and can send punters home smiling on day four of this brilliant Royal Meeting.
¬
This race has been the plan ever since he made a very encouraging return to action as a four year old, when narrowly going down to Fareer in York’s Hambleton Handicap over a mile¬†during Dante week.
¬
Despite having no luck with the draw he still ran a corker there, and to my eyes the step back up in trip to 1m 2f is exactly what’s required to return him to winning ways.

Latest Royal Ascot Odds
¬
Although he never made the track at the age of two his three year old campaign was executed with skill by his likeable trainer, placed to good effect to win his first three starts. He went into the York race off a mark of 103, and there could be plenty more to come here off 107.
¬
Neil Callan can steer him home at a generally available price of 9/4.
¬
Some gorgeous fillies line up in the¬†Group 3 Albany Stakes¬†at 2.30pm, none more so than commentator’s nightmare Radharcnafarraige for Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning.
¬
Bolger won this race in 2008 with Cuis Ghaire, and was quick to pinpoint the Albany as the target after this filly put up an excellent performance to land the Group 3 Coolmore Stud Fillies’ Stakes at Naas on June 7th.
¬
Interestingly Cuis Ghaire won that very same race en route to Albany glory, and in Radharcnafarraige they’ve got another filly of great potential.
¬
They won’t have been too disappointed to see her drawn in 6, and the quickening ground will hold no fears whatsoever after she fairly zipped off a fast surface at Naas.
¬
I’ll be having a look edach way¬†at the 11/2 available with Bet365 and Stan James, although it can pay to shop around and find those firms paying an extra place (Totesport, Blue Square and SkyBet at the time of writing).
¬
Since he’s having such a strenuous week it’d be remiss not to sign off with a brief word about the latest Lord Culcheth news.
¬
Beaming from ear to ear he spent a couple of hours on Thursday afternoon explaining in detail to anyone in earshot how he was going to spend a chunk of his Afsare winnings from the Hampton Court Stakes on a Gerald Delamere tattoo.
¬
For those of you not familiar with Gerald he’s a much respected Racing Post pundit who made an excellent case in the paper for Afsare to land the 5.00, a race he duly delivered¬†despite a minor sweat due to a stewards’ enquiry.
¬
Delighted by what he’d read Culcheth has decided to commemorate the source of one of his biggest ever wins as a gambler by building a shrine to Gerald.¬†Exactly what part of his anatomy the noble Lord plans to decorate with this decadent¬†piece of art, detailing the grinning, bespectacled veteran Irish tipster¬†is anyone’s guess.
¬
Good luck!
¬
Friday’s best bets at Royal¬†Ascot:
¬
2.30 – Albany Stakes – 19 Radharcnafarraige (each way) @ 11/2 (Bet365 or Stan James)
¬
4.25 – Wolferton Handicap – 6 Rainbow Peak (win) @ 9/4 (general – Wolferton Handicap Odds)
