Royal Ascot Day Five Tips and Predictions

14:30 – Age Of Gold @ 7/2
16:25 – River Tiber @
6/4
17:05 – Orazio @
14/1

Chesham Stakes tip

14:30 – Age Of Gold @ 7/2

The Chesham Stakes (14:30) kicks off the final day at Royal Ascot and Godolphin have an exciting runner here in the shape of Age Of Gold, who can make it two wins from two starts.

The son of superstar Frankel went off 11/10 favourite for his debut in a 6f novice at Yarmouth and couldn’t have been any more impressive in winning by a length and a quarter that day.

The Charlie Appleby-trained runner was slowly away and bumped early, but showed plenty of tenacity to make up his ground easily, winning going away despite showing signs of greenness.

That was the perfect start for this 625,000 euros purchase and the sky’s the limit, especially now that he has that initial experience under his belt. There should be plenty more to come with this quicker ground looking certain to suit. His pedigree strongly suggests that he will be at his best on fast going.

Jersey Stakes tip

16:25 – River Tiber @ 6/4

The Jersey Stakes (16:25) often goes to a horse who has competed in Group 1 company and the one who fits the bill this year is River Tiber, who was an eyecatching third in the Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh last time.

River Tiber was beaten a length and a half by the winner, but that was none other than Tuesday’s St James’s Palace Stakes hero Rosallion, and that form is strong in the context of this race.

River Tiber has work to do to reverse the places with Haatem, who finished a length and a quarter ahead of him in second, but my selection was having his first outing of the season that day and is entitled to improve significantly with that race under his belt. 

He had Haatem behind in fifth when winning the Coventry Stakes at this meeting last season on the straight course, so the return to this track is in River Tiber’s favour, and he also gets 3lbb from Haatem.

The drop to 7f might also suit him better than his main rival and he rates the banker of the day.

Wokingham Stakes tip

17:05 – Orazio @ 14/1

The Wokingham Stakes (17:05) is the big sprint handicap on the day and the one to back here is Orazio, who finished a close sixth in the race last year and is now able to race off a 2lb lower mark.

The son of Caravaggio finished third in his group that day and that was the second time he has shown his best form at this track as he was a course-and-distance winner on soft ground on his previous run.

Orazio has done most of his racing with plenty of cut, but his pedigree suggests he should be well suited by quick ground and it was certainly on the fast side when he was sixth in this 12 months ago.

He has form figures reading 0030 since that run, but hasn’t performed badly on every start. He was beaten less than three lengths into 11th in the Ayr Gold Cup and returned from a winter break to record a good third in the Listed Cammidge Trophy at Doncaster. That proves he retains his ability.

He failed to build on that last time at Newmarket, but is better than that and can bounce back.
