Royal Ascot 2016 Day Four Odds - Betting Tips - Races Predictions
The penultimate day of the fantastic Royal Ascot festival offers yet more cracking racing action. Hopefully you’ll have pocketed some big wins by this stage – or at least not have blown your bank roll! But there are two days of flat racing fun left at Royal Ascot and with our betting tips and odds comparison tables we can help ensure you make a decent profit yet.
First up on Day Four is the Albany Stakes, a Group 3 sprint for two-year-old fillies. Despite the race having only been inaugurated in 2002, Mick Channon has saddled three winners, and his horse Jersey Breeze could therefore be worth checking out. The Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes is up next, a race which Sir Michael Stoute has won six times, most recently in 2013 with Hillstar. Picking out a decent betting tip for this year’s renewal – which is run over the same distance (1m4f) as the Derby at Epsom – is tough, but we’re siding with Charlie Appleby’s Festive Fare, who has shown enough heart and staying power to impress.
The Group 1 sprint, the Commonwealth Cup, is next on the card, a new race for Royal Ascot that is run over six furlongs and open to three-year-olds. Following the Richard Hannon-Richard Hughes combo in this one could be the way to go as Tiggy Wiggy was outstanding as a two-year-old, narrowly beaten into second in the Queen Mary Stakes at last year’s Royal Ascot and winning the Lowther Stakes at York and the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket. That form hasn’t quite transferred to this season, managing third in both the 1,000 Guineas and a Group 3 race at Newbury, but we have high hopes she can get back on track here.
The Group 1 Coronation Stakes looks to have a competitive field this year with three fine contenders: Found, Lucida and Ervedya. Our tip is Jim Bolger’s Lucida at betting odds of around 3/1.
The Duke of Edinburgh Stakes and the Queen’s Vase round things off as we head into the final day at this famous and entrancing festival of flat racing.
