Royal Ascot tips: Best bets for every race on Saturday
With money back as a free bet up to £10 if you lose in the first race every day of Royal Ascot, our tipster reveals his best horse racing tips for Saturday.
Frankie Dettori won the first four races on Thursday, and I think Godolphin have a great chance of doing the same on Saturday, starting with PINATUBO .
I saw him win the opener at Epsom and was really impressed with how he powered home having got away slowly from the stalls.
He has eased to victory in his first two runs so should have no issues with the step up to 7f.
As it's the last chance to take advantage of Betway's first race offer, I'd take a chance on ROSE OF KILDARE .
Two wins and two seconds from five trips so far shows some positive signs. Mark Johnston and Dettori combined for a big shock in the opening race on Wednesday so hopefully they'll at least be in the mix here.
SPACE BLUES also won on the opening day at Epsom after narrowly taking the Surrey Stakes, and I think he can complete a hat-trick here.
He is two from two over 7f and can hopefully give Godolphin a second win in four years in this race following Ribchester's success in 2016.
We've not seen MASAR since he won the 2018 Derby. This is a big ask on his return, but I believe he can do it.
He had an outstanding season last year with a dominant win in the Craven, a third in the 2000 Guineas and then giving Godolphin their first Derby winner as a 16/1 shot.
James Doyle hasn't ridden him since October 2017 but was also in the saddle when he won the Solario just a month earlier, so hopefully he can deputise in William Buick's absence.
BLUE POINT has already retained his King's Stand crown and looks good to complete a double this week in the Diamond Jubilee.
He absolutely loves Ascot, winning four of his five runs here, with the only defeat a third in the 2017 Commonwealth Cup behind Caravaggio and Harry's Angel.
The five-year-old also holds the course record over this distance so he’s going to be very tough to beat.
I do think THE TIN MAN is a nice each-way bet, though.
He's another who loves this course having won this race in 2017 along with the Champion Sprint Stakes the year before that.
Oisin Murphy was on board when he won the Sprint Cup last year and I think this looks a nice price for him to at least nick a place.
Betway are paying six places in the Wokingham so I've picked out two that will hopefully get some each-way value.
My main fancy is David O'Meara's WATCHABLE . The nine-year-old has hit some solid form so far this year (2431-411) and was particularly impressive in his previous outing at Epsom in a handicap against 13 others.
Nicely-handicapped, proven over this distance and with the superb Jason Watson in the saddle, I think he's a big price.
The other one I like is Mark Johnston's LAKE VOLTA . He's also had a solid year with two wins and two places from six runs and was runner-up behind at Epsom last time out.
The four-year-old was actually leading here in the Victoria Cup with a furlong to go but faded away and finished 10th. The drop back to 6f should suit and this looks another big price.
In the final race of the festival I'm going to take an each-way chance on COEUR BLIMEY , who has tasted victory on this course back in a Bumper in 2015 when he finished ahead of Ballyandy.
He was a very impressive winner in the Silver Bar Handicap at Newbury last time out, beating the likes of Coeur de Lion and Who Dares Wins by just under three lengths.
He should have no issues staying so I'm hoping to finish with at least a place here.
