2.30 6f class 1 Albany Stakes (Fillies' Group 3) –
Tutu Nguru 12/1 EW
This looks a tightly knit opener to day 4 at Royal Ascot. We would advise to air on the side of caution but we quite fancy the chances of the William Haggas runner, given the manner of her maiden success at Lingfield. Well supported that day and clearly much more to come so at the prices looks worth a go.
3.05 1m 4f class 1 King Edward VII Stakes (Group 2) –
Shaped like a smart type on both starts to date and now with the step up in trip looks an exciting prospect and worth backing at this kind of price against a fav that is certainly not bomb proof.
3.40 6f class 1 Commonwealth Cup (Group 1) –
The Wesley Ward runner is a solid looking option, winning here last year, and held form well since. Has recent run under belt and should be bang on here to give punters a run for their money.
4.20 1m class 1 Coronation Stakes (British Champions Series) (Fillies' Group 1) –
French raider who taken another step forward this season, looking better than ever when winning the French 1000 Guineas last time. At the current prices, looks a good chunk of value.
5.00 1m 4f class 2 Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes (Handicap) –
Dashing Star 9/1 EW
Ran well on return when 2nd at Newmarket, and should come on for that run today. with the aid of Ryan Moore in the saddle. Sitting on a fair mark and should give good run for money.
5.35 2m class 1 Queen's Vase (Listed) –
Bantry Bay 4/1
Aidan O'Brien holds a strong hand here and preference is for the race fit Bantry Bay who should be fine with this step up in trip on only his 3rd start.Can take this step up in trip in stride and especially at the prices has to be the selection.
