Five to follow on Saturday

Alan Thomson, the former Racing Editor at the Daily Record, puts up five tips on the final day of Royal Ascot on Saturday. View selections below.

MORE BEAUTIFUL (1.15) ran out a convincing debut winner at Naas 12 days ago and is fancied to double-up in the Queen Mary Stakes on the final day at Royal Ascot. Aidan O’Brien’s filly had more than three lengths to spare and ran strongly right through the line.

Wesley Ward and Frankie Dettori team up with Gulfstream Park winner Campanelle, with the filly blinkered and wearing a tongue-tie for the first time. Best of the home contingent could be Sacred, so impressive when scoring at Newmarket for William Haggas 16 days ago.

The Ballydoyle boys also boast strong claims in the Coventry Stakes with ADMIRAL NELSON (1.50). O’Brien has mopped up this juvenile contest a record nine times and Admiral Nelson moved well throughout under Wayne Lorcan, easing to a length victory. The son of Kingman looks useful.

Jim Crowley has enjoyed a productive week and Qaader strolled to a four lengths victory at Newbury last Friday and Mark Johnston’s colt could prove decidedly useful.

Pinatubo’s bubble burst in the 2000 Guineas but he was by no means disgraced. His supporters will be aiming to recoup losses in the St James’s Palace Stakes but he meets stern opposition from Wichita and PALACE PIER (3.00).

Wichita finished a place in front of Pinatubo at Newmarket and bookmakers are finding it difficult splitting the pair.

Palace Pier offers a bit more value and the Gosden camp aren’t afraid to pitch an inexperienced colt into the fray, as witnessed by the unexposed Without Parole in 2018. Palace Pier took a little while to pick up on comeback at Newcastle but quickly put distance between himself and Acquitted once finding his stride. The Kingman colt has yet to taste defeat in three runs and could be a bit special.

All eyes in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes will be fixed on 2,800 guineas bargain basement purchase Sceptical and the Irish raider looked the part when dashing three lengths clear on quick ground at Naas 12 days ago. A fairytale victory could well be on the cards but ONE MASTER (3.35) may spoilt the party.

She has reverted to sprinting following a third in the one-mile Queen Anne Stakes here 12 months ago. One Master led over a furlong out but was mowed down by Lord Glitters and Beat The Bank, so is not devoid of speed. The William Haggas-trained mare receives the 3lb sex allowance.

Kevin Ryan’s Hello Youmzain was placed behind Advertise in the Commonwealth Cup at this fixture last year and is poised to go close.

The Queen Alexandra Stakes, at 2m 6f the longest race on the Flat calendar, brings the curtain down on a special week and WHO DARES WINS (4.40) possesses the necessary stamina to fire him to the top of the shortlist.
