Free tips Horse Racing Tips for Saturday 20th June – Royal Ascot Day 5 Tips
An absolutely fantastic day on Friday, with 3 nice winners from the only 3 horses to run from our picks! Hoping for more of the same today.
- SCARLETT DRAGON – WON 40/1
- FANNY LOGAN – WON 9/1
- THE LIR JET – WON 6/1
12.40pm Royal Ascot – Golden Apollo (EW) at 22/1 at William Hill (5 places)
The Tim Easterby-trained Golden Apollo ended last season by beating 23 other rivals home in the William Hill Silver Handicap at Ayr and looks a lively outside Royal Ascot bet here.
The son of Pivotal has five career wins to his name at 6f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft, so Saturday’s conditions should pose no problems. He won here in the Shergar Sprint Handicap back in 2017, which adds yet another bow to his arrow when assessing his overall chances of taking this race.
Given his back class in these large handicap races and his liking for the ground, Golden Apollo looks well overpriced and can give you a good run for your money. We’re playing this one each-way.
1.50pm Royal Ascot – Lauded at 9/1 with BetVictor
Trained by Tom Dascombe, Lauded produced a fantastic performance to overhaul a strong field at Haydock on his debut run on the 8th June, and put himself right in the Coventry picture.
Subsequently Al Shaqab racing have come in for exciting two-year-old and he will race in their colours. He will be ridden once again by Richard Kingscote.
Dascombe nominated this horse not to the eliminated in any BHA ballots when racing resumed after the lockdown so he clearly knew he had bags of potential.
3.35pm Royal Ascot – Hello Youmzain at 4/1 with SportNation
A scorer at the highest level, Hello Youmzain took the Group 1 Sprint Cup at Haydock Park last season, seeing off the Tin Man in soft conditions. He had previously finished third in the Commonwealth Cup at last year’s Royal Ascot meeting.
Trained by Kevin Ryan, the four-year-old should be a force to be reckoned with again this season and if he shows just a glimmer of last season’s form he will go well today. Ground conditions will be ideal for him too.
Originally the ante-post favourite for this race before Sceptical burst onto the scene, 4/1 may look a big price come Saturday afternoon.
4.40pm Royal Ascot – Who Dares Wins at 10/3 with 888sport
This dual-purpose performer has placed at this meeting in the past and has absolutely zero stamina doubts. Who Dares Wins profile fits exactly the type of horse that tends to win this race, namely a through stayer, a winner of races in both racing codes and trained by a handler who is better known for their Jumps runners.
Tom Marquand can bring home the final prize of the week.
