It may be worth siding with Richard Hannon’s smart juvenile and Brocklesby winner Persian Force in the Coventry Stakes at 3.05. Hannon is renowned for training smart juveniles and thinks this son of Mehmas is one of the best two-year-olds he has trained for years, comparing him to 2009 winner of this race Canford Cliffs. This race has always been the plan for this speedy type, who has scored twice over today’s distance of six furlongs.
Mooneista, who put up a career best at the Curragh last time when second over 6f and had her chances whipped away by winner Brad The Brief, who was leaning across her in the final furlong, may be worth an each-way bet at 16-1 in the King's Stand Stakes. The filly has the ability to travel strongly, so should handle the pace, has a marked turn of foot and has the top-class Colin Keane aboard. The good to firm ground is a query, but it would not be a surprise to see her running on and being involved at the finish.
In the Wolferton Handicap Stakes, a chance can be taken on Foxes Tales, who had shown up nicely in his comeback run at Sandown and then was a clear non-stayer when upped to 1m4f at Newbury, so dropping back to 1m2f - the same course and distance as he won the Golden Gates Stakes at the meeting last year - is a sensible move.
The draw is going to make his life very tricky, but Foxes Tales won from wide at Royal Ascot last year and it is not impossible to overcome a wide draw to win from the 1m2f start.
Foxes Tales has the potential to be competing in higher-grade races as the season progresses, so it is worth chancing him to have enough latent talent to overcome the draw and get involved where it counts at decent odds.
Japanese raider Shahryar is looking to spoil the party for the home team in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes and his form certainly makes him a good bet at 100-30. The globe-trotting Group 1 winner is coming here fresh and is reported to be thriving since winning the Sheema Classic in Meydan in March. Connections are not phased by the trip or potential lack of pace and are confident the prize will be heading back to Japan.
Roger Varian’s lightly-raced Legend Of Dubai was a mighty impressive winner last time out in Newmarket and can build on that in the Royal Hunt Cup despite an 11 pound rise in the weights. The beautifully bred son of Dubawi has never finished out of the top three and is well-regarded at home.
From one hugely competitive contest to another, all eyes will be on Little Big Bear in the Windsor Castle for Aidan O’Brien, who won this contest in 2015 and 2019. Seamie Heffernan described the favourite for the contest as having ‘buckets of pace’ after scoring easily on him at Naas last month and he is well fancied to follow up here. Fast ground should suit the No Nay Never colt.
Another to watch out for at an each-way price is son Donnacha’s charge Wodao who comes into this off the back of an impressive win at Navan in May. Despite bumping into smart type - Norfolk Stakes favourite The Antarctic on two occasions - the showcasing colt is progressing well and should be in the mix.
The Tony Mullins-trained Princess Zoe would be a very popular winner and comes here with a solid chance of winning the feature Gold Cup having finished second in this race last year and warmed up for today’s assignment with a victory over the course in April when landing the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes.
Elsewhere on today’s card Aidan O’Brien will look to win the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes for the first time in five seasons when he sends out the unbeaten Dark Angel colt The Antarctic. The grey juvenile won twice in the early part of the season and as a brother to Battaash is not lacking in speed for this five furlong dash.
Curragh trainer Michael O’Callaghan looks to have an each-way shout here with Crispy Cat. The son of Ardad is very quick and can be expected to be in the front rank throughout and if his stamina reserves hold out he should be there or thereabouts at the finish.
O’Callaghan will also fancy the chances of Fastnet Crown in the concluding Buckingham Palace Stakes. The five-year-old hasn’t been beaten far in three outings so far this season and will appreciate the expected quicker ground. He finished a creditable fifth in last season’s Cambridgeshire at Newmarket on his only previous trip to England and while this seven furlongs distance is possibly short of ideal he should run a decent race.
There are Irish-trained contenders dotted throughout today’s Royal Ascot card and another likely to run well is Amortentia in the Britannia Stakes at 5.00pm. This Joseph O’Brien-trained gelding landed a gamble on his seasonal debut at Naas in May and could prove to be still well-treated off a seven pounds higher mark here.
History and Magical Lagoon are two more Irish contenders in the Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes for fillies at 3.40pm but they may have to settle for minor honours behind the William Haggas-trained Sea Silk Road. The daughter of Sea The Stars is stepping up to Group company for the first time but there has been a lot to like about her two victories this season and she can continue the good recent run of her stable here.
Champion two-year-old filly Inspiral heads the market for what promises to be one of the races of the week. The John Gosden trained daughter of Frankel missed the English 1000 Guineas due to a slight setback and will have to bring her A-game if she is to maintain her unbeaten record here on her seasonal debut against a stellar line up.
In opposition are the first two fillies home in the English 1000 Guineas - Cachet and Prosperous Voyage, the first two from the French Guineas - Mangoustine and Cachet, and a host of other high quality fillies including an unbeaten American raider Spendarella.
Michael O’Callaghan’s Cornwallis Stakes winner Twilight Jet arrives off the back of a comfortable Group 3 victory at Naas and looks a contender.
Another that could outrun her odds is the Ger Lyons trained Sacred Bridge. She won her first four starts last season before disappointing when sent off favourite for the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket in September but bounced back to form with a victory at Cork in May.
If Sacred Bridge does run well in this Group 1 contest it will be a strong pointer towards the chances of Johnny Murtagh’s Ladies Church in the concluding Palace of Holyroodhouse Handicap at 6.10pm. Ladies Church was only beaten a neck by Sacred Bridge in Cork and should be suited by the drop back to five furlongs here.
Elsewhere on Friday’s card at Royal Ascot Aidan O’Brien will be expected to bag a couple of winners with the unbeaten Meditate in the opening Albany Stakes at 2.30pm and Epsom Derby fifth Changingoftheguard in the King Edward VII Stakes at 5.35pm.
Meditate won her maiden in good style on debut at the Curragh in April before landing a Group 3 contest over six furlongs at Naas the following month. After the Naas victory O’Brien earmarked the Albany Stakes, which he last won with Brave Anna in 2016, as her next target.
Changingoftheguard has a quick turnaround from his fifth place finish behind Desert Crown at Epsom two weeks ago but his overall form looks superior to his five rivals and it will be disappointing if can’t add this Group 2 contest to his CV.
The Platinum Jubilee Stakes is the highlight on the final day of Royal Ascot and the Group 1 contest over 6 furlongs has attracted a bumper field of 27 runners.
There is real strength in depth throughout Platinum Jubilee with all 27 runners boasting ratings in excess of 100. There are two Irish-trained representatives, A Case Of You and Gustavus Weston. Of that pair Ado McGuinness’ A Case Of You would look to have solid each-way claims if running up to his best form. He is drawn on the wing in stall 27 which will help his cause.
There is more Irish interest in the fiendishly difficult Wokingham Handicap at 5pm where 28 runners are set to go to post. Ken Condon’s Quarantine Dreams is among the favourites on his first try in a handicap. The 4-y-o son of Make Believe has been running at Listed level lately and would have a chance on the form of his third place finish behind Romantic Proposal at the Curragh this time last year. Ross O’Sullivan and Johnny Murtagh are also represented with likely outsiders.
Michael O’Callaghan whose Crispy Cat had a luckless passage in Thursday’s opener runs another nice juvenile in Saturday’s Chesham Stakes at 2.30pm. Crypto Force was most impressive on debut at the Curragh at the start of this month when readily beating a well-touted Ballydoyle newcomer and should run well in this higher class contest. BoyleSports are offering their customers money back as a free bet on all losers in this race.
The action is rounded off with the marathon Queen Alexandra Stakes over two miles five furlongs and 143 yards where the current favourite Trueshan is an unlikely runner due to the quick ground. Trueshan was withdrawn from Thursday’s Gold Cup for the same reason. In his probable absence the door is wide open for a sixth Irish victory in eleven years.
Willie Mullins saddles last year’s winner Stratum while Aidan O’Brien’s Wordsworth and Dermot Weld’s Falcon Eight also look to have leading claims.
Falcon Eight was a beaten favourite in this contest twelve months ago when unsuited by Soft ground and should fare better this time and give Tom Marquand a good spin. Wordsworth is yet to race beyond two miles but has solid claims based on his close fourth to Princess Zoe over the course in the Sagaro Stakes at the end of April.
Superstars are out in force at the Royal meeting as racing’s elite performers meet in fascinating and fiercely competitive contests over the five days. The most valuable race of all and a notable betting contest is the Gold Cup on day three of the meeting, won by greats in the past, including Sagaro, Yeats and three-time winner Stradivarius.
The St James’s Palace Stakes - Tuesday 14 June
The opening day of Royal Ascot serves up some of the finest racing of the Flat season with three Group 1 races on the card. The St James Palace Stakes is the highlight, won in the past by superstars, including Frankel and Brigadier Gerard. It is a race to savour for bettors as superstars clash in an attempt to land the prize.
Prince of Wales Stakes - Wednesday 15 June
The Prince of Wales Stakes is the highlight on day two of Royal Ascot. Run over a mile and one furlong, the prestigious Group 1 sees four-year-olds and over battle it out for the coveted prize.
Gold Cup - Thursday 16 June
The highlight of the week is the Gold Cup and it’s often an intriguing betting race. Could Hollie Doyle be the first woman to triumph in this valuable contest? Doyle takes the ride aboard Trueshan and the duo, who get on famously well, are among the market principals. Aidan O’Brien’s Kyprios is also towards the top of the market.
Coronation Stakes - Friday 17 June
The spotlight turns to the fillies in the Coronation Stakes as they fight for glory in this Group 1 race over a mile. The 2022 running looks mouth-watering as 1,000 Guineas winner Cachet and runner up Prosperous Voyage look set to re-oppose. Inspiral who set the world alight last season with her impressive victories may also be in the line up, which will make for a fascinating race.
Platinum Jubilee - Saturday 18 June
The Platinum Jubilee, formerly known as the Diamond Jubilee, is all about the sprinters at Royal Ascot.
A Group 1 contest over 6 furlongs is when the very best go head to head. American and Australian raiders Caponelle and Home Affairs currently head the market. The most fancied of the British runners is Creative Force for man of the moment Charlie Appleby.
