It’s the final day of the Royal Ascot bonanza and the sprinters take centre stage today. We’ve got a cracking two-year-old race to kick things off so let’s get stuck in.

14:30 – Faisal Road (each-way)

Alfred Munnings is the short-priced favourite for this and the half-brother to Snowfall will be a warm order in here after a very easy success at Leopardstown. However, the form has taken a couple of hits so I think there is value to be had with some of the others.

FAISAL ROAD for John and Thady Gosden looked like a horse for the future when winning at Yarmouth. He gets the nod from me in this contest. If Frankie Dettori was on board this lad would be shorter but Jack Mitchell is retained by the owner.

15:05 – Star Girls Aalmal

I really like this filly, STAR GIRLS AALMAL. She won very well at Gowran Park and ran a hell of a race in the Irish 1000 Guineas. I feel 7f is made for her I think she is a cracking bet in this contest.

15:40 – Hurricane Lane

HURRICANE LANE won the St Leger last year, the only concern is the ground. Broome is the obvious danger.

16:20 – Sacred (each-way)

Sacred is a bold shout I know, however, this daughter of Exceed And Excel handles fast ground really well. She has a lot of speed, as she showed when she beat Saffron Beach in the Nell Gwyn last year first time out. We all saw what Saffron Beach did earlier in the week!

I think the 6f at Ascot could be perfect. You have a few horses in front of her in the betting who are proven sprinters but they are priced accordingly. I think SACRED is a sporting each-way bet in a tricky race to call.

17:00 – Tabeed

Archie Watson has been amongst the winners this week and this son of Havana Gold has run some good races on fast ground so conditions are perfect and TABEED’S not badly handicapped off 102. Interesting that Ryan Moore has plumped for Rohaan. He would have had a few choices in this.

17:35 – Honiton

Frankie Dettori has not had the best of weeks but I’m hoping that’s all going to change. I like Honiton in here. He bolted up at Sandown and, if you look at the horses that have beaten him in maidens this year, he finished 3rd to Eldar Eldarov at Newcastle that is strong form.

He also finished 3rd behind My Prospero at Newbury with Thesis 2nd. Thesis won at Royal Ascot in the week and My Prospero finished a very close 3rd in the St James’s Palace. HONITON is not badly handicapped off 94 so fingers crossed.

    18:10 – Trueshan or Wordsworth

    Will he or won’t he run? That is the question. If the rain comes I think TRUESHAN will win. If no rain we have to go with WORDSWORTH.
