Qazyna odds make her the Horsenetting.com bet to land the Sandringham Stakes at Royal Ascot on Friday, 22 June. Ceilidhs Dream and Broadway look each-way alternatives in the ultra competitive 1m handicap for three-year-old fillies only. Find out why Qaznya is taken to come out on top by reading our 2018 Sandringham Stakes betting tips preview.Qazyna has a super chance in Sandringham StakesQazyna looks worth a bet to cash-in what looks a potentially lenient opening handicap mark and land the spoils in the Sandringham Stakes on day four of Royal Ascot (17:00). The Roger Varian trained filly shaped with stacks of promise when third on her sole run as a juvenile, and duly showed the benefit of that experience on seasonal reappearance when powering clear to land a 1m maiden at Newmarket.
Qazyna travelled ominously well throughout on the heels of the leader before looming up large entering the dip 1 1/2 furlongs from home. When Andrea Atzeni then asked her to go about her business, the daughter of Frankel stretched clear to win easing down by 3 1/2 lengths from Feline Groovy. The runner-up has won since, as have the third and sixth home, to give the form a solid look. It was a performance which suggested Qazyna had a big future.
She was also far from disgraced last time out when stepped up into Listed company and finishing an 8 1/4 lengths third to the very exciting and unbeaten Lah Ti Dar over 1m 2f. Qazyna made headway to hold every chance two from home before weakening late on. The drop back to 1m looks sure to suit and an opening mark of 94 could well underestimate her ability given that connections clearly feel she is a pattern performer in the making.Ceilidhs Dream the pick of Beckett pairCeilidhs Dream is another dropping in class and trip and looks the pick of two saddled by trainer Ralph Beckett. The three-year-old has only had three starts and opened her account at the second time of asking when beating Sea Of Class by a neck over 1m at Newmarket. Ceilidhs Dream stayed on strongly to fend of the runner-up, who has since won two Listed contests in fine style. That gives the form a very solid look in the context of this contest and makes an opening makr of 90 for Ceilidhs Dream look potentially very lenient.
She was also far from disgraced last time out when sixth in the 1m 2f Group 3 Musidora Stakes at York and the return to 1m is a plus. With the prospect of more to come, Ceilidhs Dream look weighted to run a big race and makes plenty of each-way appeal.Broadway a player for Ballydoyle maestro O’BrienAnother that is worthy of each-way consideration in a typically wide-open renewal is the Aidan O’Brien trained Broadway. She ran well two start back when third to Lightening Quick in a Group 3 at Naas, staying on nicely to be nearest at the finish and beaten just a length.
Broadway has since gone on to open her account in a 14-runner maiden at the same venue, where she went clear two from home and only had to be kept up to her work to score comfortably by 2 1/2 lengths.
This daughter of Galileo won that off an official rating of 99, so now makes her handicap debut off the same mark. She is bred to be better than that and appears to be improving with each outing of late. Given her powerful connections, Broadway commands plenty of respect in this and a big run looks on the cards.
