Well, a thriller to end a remarkable five days at Ascot.
It’s been a conference like no other and there have been some spectacular, suspenseful moments.
What a sport this is.
Hope you’ve all backed a few winners. See you once again soon.
3 WINNERS FOR ALAN KING
An excellent training efficiency from Alan King– 3 Royal Ascot winners today.
They crawled round and this 2m5f race became a 3f sprint! It was the jolly Who Dares Wins who triumphed.
1. Who Dares Wins EvsF
2. The Grand Visir 11 -4
3. Mukha Magic 40 -1
It’s already the final race of the 2020 Royal meeting. Unfortunate times.
It’s a 2m5f marathon to close the card, the Queen Alexandra Stakes.
Alan King is going for a third winner of the week with Who Dares Wins, however I quite like The Grand Visir here.
IMPRESSIVE AFTERNOON FOR FRANKIE …
Read our report on an afternoon Dettori will always remember.
LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU BACKED SUMMERGHAND …
WHAT A DAY FOR RYAN AND STOTT
Unbelievable scenes as Hey Jonesy makes all the running at 18 -1 to win the Wokingham and give Kevin Ryan and Kevin Stott a big-race double!
1. Hey Jonesy 18 -1
2. Summerghand 15 -2
3. Spanish City 16 -1
4. Gulliver 12 -1
THEY’RE OFF IN THE WOKINGHAM
We are still awaiting our very first winning preferred on day five.
Could it be Bielsa, who has been well-punted in the upcoming Wokingham and could give Kevin Ryan an afternoon to savour?
I’m rather keen on Spanish City each-way, while our guy Templegate, who has actually remained in leading kind today, fancies Angel Alexander.
Hello Youmzain has made virtually all for the Kevin Ryan team! A huge win for jockey Kevin Stott.
I was viewing that surface through my fingers having actually backed Dream Of Dreams …
1. Hey There Youmzain 4-1
2. Imagine Dreams 8-1
3. Sceptical 2-1f
THEY’RE OFF IN THE DIAMOND JUBILEE
Can Dettori do it again? Irish raider Sceptical is the 2-1 favourite for the Diamond Jubilee to cap a stellar day for the top jock.
However there are some smart sprinters in here against him, consisting of Group 1 winners Hello Youmzain and One Master.
But my fancy is Imagine Dreams– it’s been a difficult day for Ryan Moore however I reckon he can steer this lad house.
He was beaten a head by Blue Point in this race in 2015 and he goes well fresh. Here’s who are tipster fancy …
Templegate: Hey There Youmzain
Chappers: One Master
DETTORI AT IT AGAIN
That was Dettori’s sixth winner of the week and he has now won every single Group 1 race at Royal Ascot.
He has also matched Pat Eddery’s 73 winners at the Royal meeting– not bad going from the Italian stallion!
And he has the little matter of riding the preferred in the Diamond Jubilee next …
WHAT A RACE
A humdinger for the St James’s Palace and it goes the method of Frankie Dettori and the unbeaten Palace Pier.
Pinatubo came their swinging under William Buick however he might never ever kick clear and he has been worn down late.
1. Palace Pier 4-1
2. Pinatubo 11 -8 f
3. Wichita 9-4
Pinatubo is the NAP our of top tipster Templegate. Here are the group’s selections.
Jack Keene: Danger EW
The runners are getting to the post … what a race in prospect
Pinatubo and Wichita filled the places in the 2000 Guineas earlier this month and they square off once again in a mouthwatering St James’s Palace Stakes.
It’s been a peaceful week up until now for fitness instructor Charlie Appleby, however his steady star is the 5-4 favourite to get his season back on track.
FRANKIE DOES IT AGAIN
Alpine Star hugged the rail throughout and goes out an all set winner of the Crowning Stakes under Frankie Dettori.
She was miles clear at the line– another winner in this race for Jessie Harrington and in the exact same colours of Alpha Centauri too!
1. Alpine Star 9-2
2. Sharing 16 -5
3. Quadrilateral 2-1f
Time for the first of three mouthwatering Group 1sts on the card.
Quadrilateral is the preferred at 9-4, with Alpine Star and US filly Sharing next in the betting at 4-1. They’re reaching the start.
Sorry for the hold-up on here. My associate Callum Jamieson has actually just tipped the 150 -1 winner of the Coventry.
Fantastic effort and a stunning result– and he has won it with authority! Jaw-dropping.
The biggest-priced winner in Royal Ascot history.
1. Nando Parrado 150 -1
2. Qaader 3-1
3. Saeiqa 25 -1
GOING IN AGAIN
The Ballydoyle fans had their fingers burnt when More Stunning completed out of the frame in the Queen Mary.
However they’re going back in on ADMIRAL NELSON in the Coventry. The unbeaten son of Kingman is the 5-2 favourite.
I’m hoping QAADER can win this and provide Jim Crowley another winner. Who do Templegate and Chappers fancy?
Chappers: Creative Force
QUEEN MARY REACTION
Wes Ward was understandably buzzing after Campanelle’s win.
He stated the filly will remain in Europe for a tilt at the Prix Morny, while the other day’s 2nd Golden Buddy will likely be aimed at the Nunthorpe.
WHAT A PERFORMANCE
A fantastic effort from the United States filly Campanelle from stall one. Perfectly judged from Frankie Dettori.
ONE FOR WESLEY!
That is beautiful. Beautiful trip from Frankie, he was isolated on Wesley Ward’s Campanelle but she has actually bossed this Queen Mary field.
You ‘d need to update that performance provided the track bias we’ve seen today.
1. Campanelle 9-2
2. Spiritual 5-1
3. Caroline Dale 100 -1
