Royal Ascot Betting Tips: Our Best Bets For Day 4 At The Meeting

Royal Ascot Day 4 Tips:


After three fantastic days of racing at Royal Ascot we are looking forward to Day 4 of the meeting. 

Many punters are looking beyond the favourites and instead hunting down some winners at a big price with online bookmakers.

In this article, we take a look through the Day 4 racecard at Royal Ascot and identify a number of selections which should be able to go well at a nice price. 

14:30 - Albany Stakes

Roger Varian has won this race twice in the last decade and in Jabaara he has a filly with such potential that a third success could be on the cards.

Jabaara, the trainer’s only two-year-old runner of the week at Royal Ascot, went into many a notebook when picking up strongly to win a Newmarket maiden in taking style last month. 

The daughter of Exceed And Excel didn’t get the clearest of passages in behind horses that day but once in the clear she showed a smart change of gear to sweep past the leaders and ultimately win with a fair bit more in hand than the official three-quarter length margin suggests.

Third-placed La Guarida has advertised the strength of that form with an emphatic success at Goodwood since.

It would be a surprise if there wasn’t a good deal more to come from Jabaara, whose stall 18 draw shouldn’t pose any problems.

The Varian team are already on the board at this year’s Royal Meeting and Jabaara appears to have exactly the right profile to land this six-furlong prize.

15:05 - Commonwealth Cup

A race that seemingly revolves around Ballydoyle sprinter Little Big Bear, last year’s champion two-year-old and winner of the Windsor Castle at this meeting 12 months ago.

However, for all his undoubted talent, there are reasons to believe he was flattered by racing on the favoured stands’ side when scoring at Haydock last time and this is significantly tougher.

The one to take the favourite on with has to be Sakheer, who looked a superstar in the making when hosing up in the Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury last season.

Like Little Big Bear, his 2,000 Guineas run proved a complete disaster and is a total ‘throw out’ run because conditions on the Rowley Mile completely went against Sakheer, who needs a sound surface to show his best form.

The drop back to sprinting looks exactly the right move given how well this horse travels, and quick ground will enable Sakheer to travel and unleash that devastating turn of foot.

Still very lightly-raced and unexposed as a sprinter, the potential is there for Sakheer to be top class.

17:00 - Sandringham Stakes

A clue to this competitive contest could come from the 2020 renewal, when Onassis who was a 33/1 shot with horse racing betting sites caused a shock for Charlie Fellowes.

Onassis’ half-sister, Jackie Oh, isn’t going to be anything like that sort of price given she is trained by Aidan O’Brien and ridden by Ryan Moore, but she’s a filly that has obvious potential off this mark in a handicap.

Jackie Oh has only raced three times but she was beaten less than six lengths in the Irish 1,000 Guineas last month despite having been forced to come round the outside of the field having been shuffled to the back early on.

That form is clearly very strong in the context of a handicap and there is surely a stack more to come from a filly that holds multiple Group 1 entries this season. 

If she is to justify those, she has to be going well in a handicap off a mark of 102, and a stands’ side draw shouldn’t be any problem given the evidence of straight-track races so far this week.

17:35 - King Edward VII Stakes

King Of Steel is the favourite with betting apps and he is the obvious starting point here after his mighty run in defeat at Epsom, but don’t be surprised if we see a very different version of Arrest this time.

The John & Thady Gosden colt blew out completely in the Derby but he got very warm beforehand and, having raced on the front end, ultimately dropped right out to finish around 12 lengths behind King Of Steel.

Arrest lost a hind shoe during the race and Frankie Dettori reported that the colt ‘hated the track and the ground’ afterwards so it’s fair to say that pretty much nothing went the way of a horse that still has loads of potential.

He’s a fast-ground maiden winner so although his best performance, that runaway Chester Vase win, came on soft ground, conditions shouldn’t be a problem if Ascot get a shower or two that takes the sting out of the ground.

We clearly didn’t get to see the best of Arrest at Epsom but we are very likely to see a different horse this time, and an on-song Arrest is a major threat to King Of Steel, who needs to prove that Derby run was no fluke.
