image for 66/1 horse named after the Pope to win Ascot's QEII Stakes
Act of Faith: Olivier Peslier aboard Ratzinger in the Holy Roman Emperor Stakes earlier this year

Ascot, Berks - (Thoroughbred Mess): A 66/1 chance five year old bay colt by Spectrum (IRA) out of the French (night) mare Dibenoise (by Kendor) who is named after Pope Joe Ratzinger is a betting odds steamer for Saturday's $400,000 Group One Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

The Shaikh Hamdan Al McTomb Raider-owned Racinger (sic) has been backed from 250/1 on spread betting internet site Aintgottaprayer.con after Royal Ascot racecourse rumors of a 'miracle' comeback.

The Freddie Head-trainer and Olivier Peslier-ridden wonder whorse was seen bathing in holy water earlier this week which the Pope had flown in specially from Lourdes after his recent trip to the French Pyreneean shrine.

Racecourse rumor mills are abuzz with speculation that 90% of Vatican sub-prime mortgage debts are riding on the 66/1 chance following a done deal with Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien's 11/8 racecard favorite Henrythenavigator.

Shergar is still missing.
