Royal Ascot Day 5 Tips – Race By Race

All listed prices were correct at the time of selection on Friday afternoon at 4pm.

12.40 – Aplomb at 11/2 Each Way

Progressive last season, his best career effort so far came over course and distance and last run can be forgiven as he clearly is best suited by six furlongs.

1.15pm – Sacred at 5/1

Only two of the field have had more than one run – and both of those runners are outsiders – making form tricky to judge. However Sacred travelled beautifully when winning her debut, found plenty despite trouble, and with the 6th, 7th and 8th all winning since that form looks strong.

1.50 – Admiral Nelson at 11/4

Represents quality connections who have won this race four times in the last nine years. He had plenty in hand despite only winning by a length and that was one of the top performances from a juvenile so far this season.

2.25 – Alpine Star at 7/2

Improved with each start in 2019 and her connections won this race in 2018 with her half-sister. She won a Group 2 on final start last year, beating the 1,000 Guineas Love, and looks set for a huge summer.

3.00 – Wichita at 9/4

Pinatubo v Wichita promises to be the battle of the day, and our tipsters see the latter coming out on top and confirming their 2,000 Guineas placings. He should be able to handle the quick turnaround time and looks to be a lovely 3 year old.

3.35 – Sceptical at 5/2

Four wins in a row now, including an easy victory in a Listed contest last time out. His miniscule price tag of £2,800 has made plenty of headlines but he has plenty of potential and his progression has been exceptional.

4.10 – Bielsa at 5/1

A tip sure to divide football fans, he is now fittingly owned by King Power Racing Co Ltd. He has won four of his five starts so far, and looked far from himself on his only defeat, which can be forgiven. He clearly doesn’t mind cut in the ground and he could easily be a group class sprinter in the making.

4.40 – Who Dares Wins at 5/2

A recognisable horse for jumps fans as well as flat, which is no surprise – this race is run over such a long distance it regularly attracts high quality National Hunt horses. A Group 2 Chase winner in February, he finished 4rd in the Prix du Cadran in October and is unsurprisingly top rated which means he is very well treated by the conditions of the race.


bet365 ITV 4/1+ Offer

bet365 have continued their excellent 4/1+ offer for ITV racing, which is a great way to add extra value to your winning selections.

Back a winning horse in an ITV race at 4/1 or bigger, and you’ll get a risk free bet on the next ITV race up to £50!

As it’s risk free, you get refunded in cash, rather than as a free bet, making it the equivalent of a whole extra point of value!

Full T&Cs apply and are listed at the bottom of the page.


bet365 Price Promise

Another bet365 offer which is exclusive to ITV racing is their price promise.

From 10am on the day of racing to 15 minutes before each scheduled ‘off’ time, bet365 will update prices to ensure they offer the best price on every horse running.

They will match best price with Ladbrokes, William Hill, Paddy Power, Coral, Sky Bet and Boylesports, which is especially handy if you are in a rush (or at the track!) and don’t have time to check odds at different bookmakers. Again, full T&Cs are listed at the bottom of the page.
