Day four of Royal Ascot is already upon us, with the first three days of the five-day meeting kicking up some big-priced winners across the cards.
Friday’s action in Berkshire kicks off with the Albany Stakes at 2.30 and concludes with the Palace Of Holyroodhouse Stakes at 6.10.
Our team have picked through the day’s card in hope of hunting down some value in the scheduled contests.
Here are the three picks to consider on day four of Royal Ascot.
ELLIPTIC – 2.30 ASCOT (10/1 – bet365 + Ladbrokes)
An intriguing filly hailing from Donnacha O’Brien’s yard, Elliptic carries some handy form into the Albany Stakes.
The two-year-old scored on debut, showing quick pace to win over five furlongs at Tipperary and see off Queen Mary winner Quick Suzy by a length and a half.
She finished second under a penalty at the Curragh, but she should benefit from that experience and could well strike on level terms in this contest.
POTAPOVA – 4.20 ASCOT (14/1 – Various)
A filly possessing a high level of promise for Sir Michael Stoute, Potapova could relish the step up in company in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes.
The daughter of Invincible Spirit is unbeaten on her first two starts, which she won by a combined 14½ lengths.
This is a much tougher assignment, but the three-year-old clearly holds a lot of potential and could well land some black type for her connections here.
TYSON FURY – 5.35 ASCOT (33/1 – Various)
A big-priced outsider in the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes, Tyson Fury could bounce back to form on his handicap debut for Richard Spencer.
The four-year-old colt ran in the St Leger on only his second start and has won two of his five races, including a C&D success back in October.
The son of Iffraaj will need to improve on his two outings this season, but he could produce a bigger effort in this company.
