Royal Ascot tips: six horses to back on day four of the royal meeting
Friday's best bets ranked in order of confidence by our top tipsters
Very useful on the Flat and over hurdles, won't mind any rain and much better than he was able to show in a messyall-weather race last time.
Hughie Morrison won this with Arab Dawn in 2015 and has an outstanding candidate this year. Quickthorn looked a Group horse in the making when running away with a 1m4f handicap at Haydock last month and could still be well ahead of the handicapper off a 13lb higher mark of 97.
Fancied to give Simon and Ed Crisford a winner at the royal meeting after some sparkling work on the watered gallop of late. She won on soft ground on her debut at Goodwood last month, so won't mind any rain.
Mo Celita(6.10 Ascot)
Unbeaten in five starts on turf and this rapidly improving sprinter can stretch her successful sequence to six.
Pretty Gorgeous(4.20 Ascot)
Can be forgiven a below par reappearance effort when favourite for the Irish 1,000 Guineas on deep ground and her solid two-year-old form, such as when beating 1,000 Guineas winner Mother Earth in the Fillies' Mile, rates her the leading player on the figures.
Snow Lantern(4.20 Ascot)
Trainer Richard Hannon has made it no secret how much he rates the daughter of Sky Lantern, who took this race in 2013. A repeat of her Newbury win on her seasonal return should see her go close.
