Top Royal Ascot performance to take away from the 2023 meeting

It was another incredible week at Royal Ascot, as the meeting bid farewell to Frankie in his final year riding in the sport but no doubt he left no stone unturned, with some stunning performances. Punters were continuing to support him as always, with Ladbrokes betting offers proving especially popular across the week, with traditional accumulators running onto his different rides. However, it did prove to be a very challenging week for punters, with some huge odds winners. Despite that – we did get to see a number of dazzling performances, so here we cover the top performance to take away and a clear horse to follow and is likely going to follow up across the rest of the season.

The selection has to be Tahiyra, but you cannot forget the likes of the hugely impressive and progressive Paddington, who is a real star, and it will be fascinating to see where he goes in future, after his Irish guineas and Royal Ascot victories. However, it was the Dermot Weld trained three year old that is clearly the horse to take away from the meeting and she really does look a star.

She simply oozed class and sat right at the back on the field out wide and came hard on the bridle on the outside and put the race to bed in a matter of strides in the Coronation stakes. That saw her land the short odds for punters, which was certainly a ready winner of a very difficult betting week. This followed up her impressive victory in the Irish 1000 Guineas back at the end of May. It will now be fascinating if we get to see a rematch between her and Mawj, after the long battle in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and no doubt that Tahiyra would now be long odds on to turn the tables on her rival.

She is clearly full of class and the big question now will be where we are likely to see her next. Her trainer said she is now going to have a break, following three races in succession to target an end of season campaign. That will likely see her head over to the states for the Breeders’ Cup and what an exciting proposition that is, as no doubt that she stands as potentially the best three year in training……. unless Paddington has something to say about that.

She is a champion and let’s hope to see her continue to show that in future races.
