Topical longshot at Ascot

The first day of Royal Ascot and some old jumping friends are running in the 2m 4f Ascot Stakes at 4.55pm, including Full House http://pgstips.blogspot.com/2006/06/full-house.html, Admiral, Football Crazy and Tikram.

With 29 runners in the field, it's obviously a bit of a lottery but, given we're in the midst of the World Cup, Football Crazy looks a fun each way bet at 50/1. Trained by Peter Bowen whose yard is in good form, Football Crazy is better known as a 3m hurdler who handles fast ground well.

Paddy Power offer 50/1 and are also paying on the fifth place.

The horse will certainly stay - the question is will he stay fast enough.

Football Crazy finished 22nd of the 29 runners. Full House put in a sterling performance to finish 4th at odds of 16/1.
