I don’t have my prices to hand at the moment but my bet in the Ascot 3-30 is Coin of the Realm. I make him 16/1 (in line with a couple of bookies early prices) and have taken 25/1 at Corals. Borderline, I think, as he didn’t score highly; the alternative was Inventor (11/1 vp, 20/1 ep) but the ‘longest priced value’ rule applies. CotR may benefit from the softer ground here having run poorly at York last time.

Coin of the Realm came 17/19 at 33/1.
SL: Slowly into stride, always behind, ridden and no response over 2f out

Poor result and probably a poor bet in hindsight.
