Royal Ascot 2019 Day 5 Tips
The last day of Royal Ascot is bound to be a good one. The Diamond Jubilee Stakes is the crown jewel of what is sure to be a brilliant day of racing. As one of the best sprint races in the world, it attracts the Usain Colts of the horseracing world.
The Wokingham Stakes takes place over 6 furlongs and is bound to be a great contest. The Queen Alexandra Stakes is the longest race in the flat racing calendar and a fitting finale to a great week of racing.
Distance: 7 furlongs
Our Royal Ascot tip: Lope Fernandez (currently 6/5)
Trained by the legendary Aidan O’Brien, this 2-year-old created a buzz when he stormed home at Curragh on debut last month. Aidan O’Brien has circled this race as the time for Lope Fernandez to step-up and he’ll be hoping he can shine. The Chesham Stakes is a great race for newbies as the last 16 winners have all run less than 3 times in their careers. A good trend for Lope Fernadez who has had only 1 race in his career.
Distance: 1 mile, 4 furlongs
Our Royal Ascot tip: Space Blues (currently 11/4)
After winning at York and Epsom, Space Blues has come to the attention of many. Trained by Charlie Appleby, Space Blues has the staying power to compete and recent trends are in his favour, with all but one of the last 17 winners running at least once that season (Space Blues has 4 runs this season).
Age: 3 (fillies)
Distance: 1 mile, 4 furlongs
Our Royal Ascot tip: Mirage Dancer (currently 5/1)
After running really well at Goodwood in May, Mirage Dancer will look to return to Royal Ascot with the form she showed in the last two seasons. She’s a classy stayer and could go well in The Hardwicke Stakes. Some trends to keep an eye on, all of the last 16 winners have won over a distance of 1 mile 2 furlongs (or further) and won a Group 2 or 3 race.
Distance: 6 furlongs
Our Royal Ascot tip: Invincible Army (currently 4/1)
Rapidly improving, this sprinter showed good form winning at Doncaster and York, he’s a strong traveller and could do well with a late charge. Trained by James Tate and his small team, Invincible Army has good form, but that tends not to bode well in The Diamond Jubilee Stakes as 12 of the last 16 winners didn’t win their previous race.
Group: Heritage Handicap
Prize: £175,000Distance: 6 furlongs
Our Royal Ascot tip: Bacchus (currently 16/1)
After not running since October, Brian Meehan’s handicapper will hope to rediscover his form from last year’s Royal Ascot when he won The Woking Stakes. The last 19 winners of the race have all won previously over 6 or 7 furlongs and hadn’t run more than 4 times that season, which bodes well for Bacchus.
Distance: 2 miles, 6 furlongs
Our Royal Ascot tip: Max Dynamite (currently 5/2)
Willie Mullins experienced 9-year-old will hope to perform better than in the last two races of 2018. This versatile stayer hasn’t run since October so should be fresh. He hasn’t won since 2017, but if the conditions are right, he could impress.
