We’re on the brink of Royal Ascot 2019 and Paul Kealy has been taking questions from punters on the Racing Post and social media. Below we have picked out the best quotes and found the best odds for his Royal Ascot 2019 betting tips.
Paul Kealy is known in the industry as a punter who loves a big priced bet, so you don’t often find him tipping up shorter odds horses. This is ideal for the small stakes punter who is looking for Royal Ascot tips at some double figure odds.
Paul was speaking to the Racing Post and you can see all of the selections here. We have picked out the most interesting picks below and included the odds at the time of writing.
Paul’s answer: I think he’s a proper 1m4f horse, so that’s where I’d go, but obviously there’s more prestige in the PoW and you’d imagine Sir Michael Stoute will be keeping his ear to the ground over plans for Sea Of Class and Masar, who have yet to run this term.
Crystal Ocean Royal Ascot Odds:
Hardicke Stakes – 7/4.
Prince of Wales Stakes – 6/1.
Paul: Rather stupidly I’ve been talking too much about betting and not doing any of it and then watching prices evaporate before my eyes. Looks like I’ll be going in fairly clean this year, but horses I’ve missed the price on that I still like are Accidental Agent and Inns Of Court.
Accidental Agent Royal Ascot Odds:
Queen Anne Stakes – 12/1.
Inns of Court Royal Ascot Odds:
Diamond Jubilee – 6/1.
Paul: I hadn’t really warmed to Dee Ex Bee until Sandown, but I thought he was really impressive there and if there is one to beat Stradivarius it is probably him. Mark Johnston was mustard with stayers a few years ago and you know he hasn’t lost the touch. Stradivarius still keeps getting the job done, though, and is the right favourite, but I’d imagine Dee Ex Bee is a borderline free bet each-way.
Dee Ex Bee Royal Ascot Odds:
Ascot Gold Cup – 6/1.
Stradivarious Royal Ascot Odds:
Ascot Gold Cup – 13/8.
Paul: He is without doubt the best 5f sprinter we have seen for a long while, but there’s always the chance the occasion will get to him. The two course where he has failed as favourite are York and Ascot and that’s where the crowds are biggest and closest. Yes, he was second last year, but that form was still not far off a stone below his best.
There isn’t going to be anything really short on the Tuesday to say is a definite banker, but I think Blue Point should be favourite for the King’s Stand given the obvious worries over how Battaash will handle it. That said, I’m half tempted to back Mabs Cross and Sergei Prokofiev against him. Think the latter will run a massive race.
Battaash Royal Ascot Odds:
King’s Stand Stakes – 2/1.
Sergei Prokofiev Royal Ascot Odds:
King’s Stand Stakes – 10/1.
Paul: Of the big handicaps I don’t really like backing favourites, but the form of New Graduate in the Hunt Cup is stunning. My original thought was he’d blown his handicap mark by smashing up some seemingly exposed handicappers (80-odd runs between them) at Ripon on his return and going up 15lb for his 5-length win, but the second has since been third in the Victoria Cup and won at Chester and the third and fourth both won for the second time since in the past few days.
I’m sure Michael Appleby did the right thing in not running Danzeno again on Saturday, while Tis Marvellous, who was sixth in the Commonwealth Cup two years ago and won easily off 100 at the Shergar Cup last year (5f) is interesting off 1lb higher.
New Graduate Royal Ascot Odds:
Hunt Cup – 8/1.
Tis Marvellous Royal Ascot Odds:
Wokingham Stakes – 33/1.
Paul: I’m king of hoping the market gets all over one of Wesley Ward’s in the Queen Mary because Chasing Dreams looks very good for Charlie Appleby. He hasn’t had many run as big as she did on her two-year-old debut and nearly all those that have are Group-class, including the likes of Wild Illusion and Emotionless. The hood worries me, but she thumped a pair who have won good races since, including Good Vibes, who won the Marygate at York last month.
Bomb Proof’s debut success looks better every time one of his victims runs and he’d have a favourite’s chance of sending Jeremy Noseda into retirement with a Royal Ascot winner in the Windsor Castle.
Chasing Dreams Royal Ascot Odds:
Queen Mary Stakes – 9/2.
Bomb Proof Royal Ascot Odds:
Windsor Castle Stakes – 5/1

Beginning to think Chasing Dreams in the Queen Mary, although I should no better given it’s a two-year-old race, so I’ll say Inns Of Court in the Diamond Jubilee. I thought he’s been impressive both starts this season.
Inns of Court Royal Ascot Odds:
Diamond Jubilee Stakes – 6/1.
Ten Sovereigns the most likely winner for sure. Advertise over-priced on last season’s form.
Ten Sovereigns Odds:
Commonwealth Cup – 7/4
Commonwealth Cup – 16/1
