You can guarantee the big guns will be cheering from the sidelines as each front runner vies for first past the finishing post .
Each runner will be backed by their own particular syndicate , although each syndicate may also be part of a larger grouping .
The bookies now have Rory on 10/1 and Boris on 1/7 .
As such perhaps the two horse race is purely designed to keep out other candidates , candidates who are not syndicate owned .
Both appear to be establishment thoroughbreds , through and through .
The real question is , does Boris really have the stamina to stay in the lead ?
Does he really want the job ?
My guess is no .
Although a bigger question is does it really matter ?
Anyway , a couple of tips for Royal Ascot today .
Blue Point is running in this race after winning last year and is bound to feature in future races , always a contender .
A tricky one this , although Magic Wand always is showing good form as always .
As an outside each way bet you could have a punt on Global Giant or Master The World .
