Royal Ascot Day 5 Tips
Our experts pick their selections for each race on the final day of Royal Ascot to help you find more winners.
The Silver Wokingham Stakes Handicap –Aplomb
- Progressive at three, winning 6f handicaps at Nottingham (soft) and Leicester (good to soft); second over C&D in October has been well advertised by the winner since (front two clear); made a very encouraging return to action at Newmarket two weeks ago when 5f on fast ground would have been plenty sharp enough; still has some potential and warrants respect.
Queen Mary Stakes –Sands Of Time
- Made virtually all when scoring by 5l from wide draw at Lingfield (5f, AW); third did nothing for the form at Chelmsford this week but hard not to be impressed by the manner of that victory and William Buick is 3-12 (+£10.50) when riding for Mark Johnston at this meeting.
- Night Of Thunder colt who cost 110,000gns the second time he was sold; impressive at Newbury (6f, good) last week, always up there and striding clear inside the final 1f despite veering left momentarily as the turbo kicked in; third franked the form when scoring at Goodwood on Monday; respected.
Coronation Stakes –Run Wild
- Good efforts when in the frame in Group/Listed races last season but looked an improved filly when blitzing rivals from the front upped to 1m2f at Newmarket recently, having the race won a long way out and very much shaping as if the return to 1m would be fine; rider will need to judge the fractions right but big chance from rails draw if he can.
St James's Palace Stakes –Wichita
- Looked a top prospect when running away with a 7f Group 3 at Newmarket in September and perhaps the soft ground was unsuitable when third to Pinatubo in the Dewhurst next time; career-best form when close second in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket on recent return and big chance on that fine run.
- A fairytale story having been bought (unraced from Godolphin) for just £2,800 last August and shown such rapid progress that he's now a leading contender for this Group 1; completed a hat-trick at Dundalk (AW maiden/handicaps over 5f/6f) then quickened clear in Listed event at Naas (5.5f, good to firm) on turf debut; record is now 4-5; has been winning his races easily and looks very talented; sequence could well be extended.
Wokingham Stakes –Highland Dress
- Won over 7f in Ireland but has been making his name at 6f in Britain, winning on Fibresand in March and then striding clear at Newmarket recently (good to firm); up 6lb in a race that will take more winning but no ifs and buts about wellbeing and there's a good chance he has more to come.
Queen Alexandra Stakes–Who Dares Wins
- Admirably tough and reliable dual-purpose performer who was a Grade 2 novice chase winner in February but better judged on last season's Flat form, when his good efforts in top turf/AW handicaps included winning the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle; stays 2m4f well on the Flat; good chance.
