Thankfully, there are no worries about whether or not the final day of Royal Ascot 2021 will go ahead after the drama of yesterday’s late inspections.
Friday begins with the Chesham Stakes and of all the potentially high class two-year-olds in the field it’s. thefavourite, Point Lonsdale, who will take all the beating at 13/8 with bet365*.
The Jersey Stakes looks an even trickier proposition for punters given how soft the ground is at Ascot but Eg Quigley picks out two against the field in Light Refrain at 12/1 with Betfair and Nando Parrado at 33/1 with BetVictor while Charlie McCann has backed Khartoum each way at 9/1 with 888sport and Peter Scudamore thinks Naval Crown will go well for the drop back in trip at 9/1 with Paddy Power.
The ground has unfortunately gone against Hukum ahead of the Hardwicke Stakes who Jack Milner and Ed have been talking up for some time on the Ante-Post Armchair but can he go well at 15/2 with bet365?
Peter Scudamore and Charlie are in opposition though and have both gone for Wonderful Tonight at 9/2 with 888sport.
The market is supportive of Dream Of Dreams‘ ability to cope with the testing ground in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and Charlie thinks that with his conditions, Sir Michael Stoute’s experienced campaigner will take all the beating at 11/4 with bet365.
The Wokingham Stakes is the big betting race of the day and although it’s a tough one to call the panel all have their picks including Peter Scudamore for whom Pendleton is his nap of the day at 17/2 with 888sport.
Charlie’s nap of the day comes in the next, with Seasett taken to win the Golden Gate Stakes at 11/2 with BetVictor even though Ed and Peter have different options for another tricky looking race.
The final race of the final day of Royal Ascot is the longest race of the Flat racing season and the Queen Alexandra Stakes is another where you can take some shots in the dark with Ed plumping for Morando at 6/1 with Betfair with Charlie concluding that he will win if he stays.
