Here’s our best four bets of the day.

REECE’S PICKS

PRETTIEST: 2:30pm Albany Stakes (Fillies’ Group 3) – The Dubawi filly looked pretty useful on debut at Navan and represents top connections here. Ballydoyle haven’t fired overly at the festival so far but their luck is sure to turn soon and Aidan O’Brien is taken to get Friday off to a flier with Ryan Moore up.

Love Ascot

PRETTY GORGEOUS: 4:20pm Coronation Stakes (Fillies’ Group 1) – Joseph O’Brien’s representative felt the effect of a lack of race fitness in the Irish 1,000 Guineas but she holds very strong form as a two-year-old and could be worth chancing here with that run under her belt. Frankie Dettori is in the plate and although a bit of rain would help, she surely has more to give this campaign.

DOM’S PICKS

ALENQUER: 3:05pm King Edward VII Stakes (Group 2) – The form of William Haggas’s colt could hardly have been given a better boost when Adayar, who chased the selection home at Sandown in April, went onto win the Epsom Derby. On that merit, it would be hugely disappointing if the son of Adlerflug doesn’t improve further here under Tom Marquand and he arrives here fresh.

CAMPANELLE: 3:40pm Commonwealth Cup (Group 1) – Last season’s Queen Mary Stakes winner didn’t do a lot wrong in 2020, registering three wins across three different countries. She ran a cracker over the mile trip at Keeneland in the Breeders’ Cup, not far behind future 1,000 Guineas winner Mother Earth, and she is sure to be suited hugely by the drop back to six furlongs. Speed is her game and Frankie Dettori repartners her once again.
