Royal Ascot draws to a close on Saturday, with seven more races on show for punters in Berkshire.

The action kicks off with the Listed Chesham Stakes at 2.30 and concludes with the Queen Alexandra Stakes at 6.10, with the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes featuring at 4.20.

Our team have attempted to hunt down some value across the card, with the hope of picking out a few winners.

Here are three selections to watch out for at Royal Ascot on Saturday.

STORM DAMAGE – 3.05 Ascot (14/1 – bet365)

Saeed bin Suroor’s Storm Damage thundered clear on his debut less than three weeks ago and he could well claim victory on his first start in Group company in the Jersey Stakes.

The gelding carries some interesting pedigree, with his sire placing in Group 1 company over a mile at this course back in 2014.

Saeed bin Suroor will be hoping to see further progress from Storm Damage

The three-year-old is open to improvement and he could well prove to be huge value on his turf debut.

SONAIYA – 4.20 Ascot (14/1 – bet365)

Paddy Twomey’s progressive sprinter had shown some promise this season and she could well strike in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

It would take a career-best performance from the mare, but the conditions have fallen into her favour and she has placed in Group 1 company previously.

Sonaiya holds a price tag of 14/1 and could well be in the frame here.

AIR RAID – 5.00 Ascot (25/1 – Various)

A big-priced outsider in the Wokingham Stakes, Air Raid could take advantage of the heavy ground here for Jedd O’Keefe.

The gelding has claimed success over this distance in these conditions, snatching victory at Haydock back in October at 2lbs lower.

The six-year-old will need to bounce back here but he does hold some each-way value if the going remains heavy in Berkshire.
