Clever Cookie in King George Gamble as Ascot Going Turns Soft

Clever Cookie, who was a 40-1 shot for the race following yesterday’s declaration stage, is now 10-1 with Coral for tomorrow’s King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (Sponsored by Qipco), as punters reacted to rainfall at Ascot that has seen the going turn soft.  Golden Horn remains favourite but is eased to 8-11 (from 4-6).

“The cash has poured in for Clever Cookie as quickly as the rain has fallen over Berkshire today, with testing ground just what connections of the 7-y-o gelding would have wished for ahead of the biggest test of his career.  With favourite Golden Horn friendless in the market in the last 24 hours, it would be no surprise to see Clever Cookie’s odds shorten further before the off,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Looking ahead to next week’s Qatar Sussex Stakes, the French-trained Solow has been in demand today, and is now 11-8 (from 6-4) with Coral, with favourite Gleneagles eased to evens (from 5-6).
