This Roger Teal trained colt is a really tough and likeable type who progressed with every run as a juvenile.
Landing a Listed contest during the St Leger meeting at Doncaster on just his fourth career start, he then rounded off the campaign with a fine 2 3/4 lengths second to Elarqam in the Group 3 Tattersalls Stakes at Newmarket before spending the winter running in Qatar.
Tip Two Win looked the type that would develop into a smart three-year-old and has confirmed that view with two cracking efforts this season. In the first of those, he finished runner-up to Saxon Warrior in the 2000 Guineas over 1m at Newmarket – turning the tables on Elarqam in the process.
After racing towards the rear, he made good headway a furlong from home and stayed on strongly to go down by 1 1/2 lengths. The son of Dark Angel finished a head in front of subsequent Epsom Derby winner Masar and had Roaring Lion – who has since won the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse – a length behind in fifth.
That form is right out of the top drawer and Tip Two Win has since run well to finish fourth of 10 to Without Parole in the 1m Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot when beaten fourth lengths. This is far easier than both those contests and the drop back to 7f will hold no fears, as he has won twice and been placed once in three starts over it.
So, taking everything into account, there is simply nothing not to like about his profile for this and it looks a great opportunity for him to get back on the scoresheet. Tip Two Win is thus our recommended punt among the 2018 Lennox Stakes betting tips.Sir Dancealot a major playerThe David Elsworth trained Sir Dancealot has been in terrific form this season, winning twice and posting some excellent efforts in defeat. They include when fourth of 13 to U S Navy Flag in the Group 1 July Cup over 6f at Newmarket when last seen in action 17 days ago,
After racing in mid-division, Sir Dancealot stayed on well to chase the leaders inside the final furlong without having the pace to land a serious blow. However, he did all his best work at the finish and was beaten only 2 3/4 lengths.
The step back back up to 7f is sure to suit, as he has won four times and been placed on three other occasions from 11 starts over this specialist trip. Indeed, Sir Dancealot scored readily over it prior to the July Cup when landing a Group 3 at headquarters by a length from So Beloved, who re-opposes here.
With nothing to fear from that rival, Sir Dancealot is clearly right at the top of his game at present. He’s a tough sort who doesn’t know how to run a bad race and so rates as our main danger to Tip Two Win.Each-way value offered by D’BaiThere are a host of others with chances in a wide-open renewal; so, at the odds on offer, D’Bai makes plenty of each-way appeal now stepped back up in trip. This Charlie Appleby trained colt has a tremendous strike rate over seven furlongs having won three from six and finishing in the frame on another occasion.
In the last of those successes two starts back at Haydock, the four-year-old dug deep to fend of Larchmount Lad by a head in the Group 3 John Of Gaunt Stakes. The runner-up is a solid yardstick who landed a Group 2 contest at The Curragh on his latest outing, so the form reads well.
D’Bai has since finished a solid sixth of 12 to Merchant Navy in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. He didn’t have the pace to challenge, but was far from disgraced in being beaten just over five lengths. This stiffer test will be far more up his street.
The Godolphin owned son of Dubawi also hails from a yard ins sizzling hot form at present and, with William Buick in the saddle, it would be no surprise to see D’Bai outrun his odds and make the frame at least now that he has his optimum conditions.Your Next Bet
