Racing Tips – Thursday Best Bets for Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot is rated Good to Firm.

Best Bet

3. Magical Lagoon
Ascot R3 (12:40am)

Magical Lagoon comes off a very narrow second behind Concert Hall last start in the Salsabil Stakes and the form out of that race has worked out well with Concert Hall running very well in the Irish 1000 Guineas and Epsom Oaks. There have been a couple of other subsequent winners from the race too. This Galileo filly who races in the familiar Yulong silks should prove very hard to beat.

Recommended Price: $3.00
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

10. Walbank
Ascot R1 (11:30pm)

Walbank was beaten at Ascot on debut but went to York next time out and absolutely bolted in, showing a terrific turn of foot. The pricey colt – he topped half a million guineas at a breeze up sale earlier this year – will be primed for this and that experience here should hold him in good stead.

Recommended Price: $2.50
Confidence Level: 4/5

3. Stradivarius
Ascot R4 (1:20am)

Stradivarius is going for his fourth Ascot Gold Cup and showed by a dominant win in the Yorkshire Cup last start that he is going, if not as well as ever, then not far off it. He gets his preferred firm ground and over what is very much a niche trip, he is the one they all have to beat.

Recommended Price: $3.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5
