Horse Racing Tips: Royal Ascot cheat sheet for day 3

Who's worth a punt on Thursday?


*All prices are bang up to date with our snazzy widgets, while odds in copy are accurate at the time of publishing but subject to change.

You wait so long for the greatest flat-racing festival on the planet and then it goes by so fast.

We’re already on to day three of Royal Ascot 2021 and the first two days have gone by in a flash – I’m sure the complimentary flutes of fizzy wine have something to do with it.

But we’re not going to lament for what’s past – for one thing, there’s three more days of cracking racing still to go, so let’s wring every drop of value out of the top hat rental.


And there’s no better way to celebrate dressing like a muppet than with a few winning bets. Who better to find the best punts than our assembled panel of pundits – Matt Chapman, Mick Fitzgerald, Jason Weaver, Frank Hickey and the Timeform crew?

And all our pundits but Frank are agreed that Stradivarius can claim another Gold Cup at 4:15 – Mick Fitz, the floor is yours:

“The dominant horse in this division STRADIVARIUS can make his class tell and bag a fourth Gold Cup.”

It’s hard to argue with that, but our top trader Mr Hickey is willing to try and has gone against the grain with Subjectivist at a bigger price.

“Stradivarius goes for an historic fourth Gold Cup win but Dubai Gold Cup winner SUBJECTIVIST can burst his bubble now. ”


But enough of the nonsense, it’s time to get stuck in – all you have to do is click on this link or the image below to download the Cheat Sheet as a printable PDF.


Besides the near-consensus on the Gold Cup, MOHAAFETH in the 3:05 Hampton Court Stakes unites three of our tipsters.

While NOON STAR is just as popular a choice in the following race with Mick, Jason and Frank all agreed on his claims in the Ribblesdale Stakes at 3:40.
