Royal Ascot talking points – Day 5

It’s the final day of Royal Ascot and VBET considers the key storylines every punter needs to know:

A DAY FOR THE AGES

Has there been a better card at Royal Ascot? For anyone even remotely interested in the great game, the answer is probably no.

Three Group 1s, a host of star juveniles in the Queen Mary and Coventry Stakes – not to mention the Wokingham and the Queen Alexandra Stakes. Truly a day to be savoured.

HOGAN KNOWS BEST

Royal Ascot is often the playground for the giants of horse racing. How lovely it would be, then, if little-known Irish trainer Denis Hogan won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

Sceptical, the mount of Frankie Dettori, is a proper horse with a proper engine and is a justifiable favourite judged by what he has achieved this year.

JUDGMENT DAY FOR PINATUBO

Last season’s new wonder horse could sadly not maintain his unbeaten run in the 2000 Guineas, in which he finished third. It would, however, be bitterly unfair to give up on him just yet.

Racing always needs superstars. For the love of the game, it’s to be hoped he can silence the doubters in the St James’s Palace Stakes.

Get the full SP for Royal Ascot with VBET, proud sponsors of champion jockey Brian Hughes, and get best odds guaranteed in every race.

You’ll also get paid out if your horse is first past the post and is then later disqualified or demoted.
