Royal Straight likely to prevail in Sports, Games, Bingo & More Handicap
Royal Straight is likely to claim the Sports, Games, Bingo & More Handicap at Ayr in England on Monday, July 23, 2012. He will have to beat 10 other fine runners in order to claim the cash prize of £2,458.
The class-5 event will test the stamina of all participants, as they will have to cover an overall distance of 1 mile and 2 furlongs. The action is scheduled to start at 16:10 GMT and the going will be good, which suggests that the weather has been good
for racing at Ayr.
Although no runner seems to have a big advantage over the other, Royal Straight will like the conditions today. He has got a lot of experience and his form in recent times has also been good, which will encourage the punters to place bets on him. He has
been given a general starting price of 11 to 2 by the bookmakers.
The seven-year-old gelding has participated in 52 events in his career, which shows that he is fully aware of how to tackle pressure. His strike rate is on the lower side though, as he has managed to win just five times in his career. Other than that, he
has secured the runner up place on six times whereas finished third on eight occasions.
The seasoned runner started off his career in 2007, but took part in just a couple of events that year. His performances in them were pretty ordinary and it appeared that he would struggle to challenge his opponents in the future as well.
However, the Linda Perratt’s trainee brought up his maiden victory in the next season, which gave him a lot of confidence. He always lacked consistency, but proved to everyone that he was fully capable of fighting at the front.
The past couple of seasons have been good for Halling’s son, as he has managed to challenge his rivals regularly in them. He did struggle in a few races this year, but broke the shackles in his most recent race, winning it be one length, despite not being
rated as the favourite in it.
Importantly, Royal Straight’s previous victory came at Ayr, which shows that he likes the conditions at this venue. His fans will be expecting him to continue the winning momentum under Shane B. Kelly, who will be partnering him for the first time.
