Lockinge Tip: Beat The Bank
Is 5/5 away from Ascot and highly impressive in some wide margin victories last season. He ran the fastest closing sectional in each of his three wins earning adjusted speed ratings of 101, 107 and 104.
Beat The Bank was highly progressive last season and having won a Group 3 and then a Group 2 race he deserves to take his chance at the top-table. A winner of five of his seven races his only defeats have come at Ascot and it might just be he doesn’t like the track.
His victories at Newmarket (July & Rowley) and at Goodwood were all over a mile and by three lengths or more. Not only was he impressive visually, he backed it up on the clock. Those wins came with adjusted speed ratings of 101, 107, 104 and each time he ran the fastest closing sectional. That suggests there might be even more to come and he shouldn’t be 10/1.
