15:05 – 7f Jersey Stakes (Group 3)

NAVAL CROWN (1 point win bet at 17/2) ran a huge race to finish fourth in the 2000 Guineas and that represents very strong form given the subsequent performances of Poetic Flare (1st) and Lucky Vega (3rd). He comfortably beat Master Of The Seas (2nd in the Guineas) in Dubai back in February and was just a neck behind Tactical in the European Free Handicap back in April. He has plenty of speed so should relish the drop back to seven furlongs, and William Buick has chosen to ride him ahead of Charlie Appleby’s other runner Creative Force, who has won his last three and is the biggest danger.

15:40 – 1m4f Hardwicke Stakes (Group 2)

WONDERFUL TONIGHT (1 point win bet at 9/2) returns to the scene of her course and distance victory in the Group 1 Fillies & Mares Stakes on Champions Day back in October. That was her second Group 1 victory in as many weeks having also won at Longchamp on Arc weekend. She is unpenalised for those wins despite the fact that this is a Group 2 contest and will therefore receive 3lbs from her male rivals. David Menuisier’s star filly will be well suited by the easing of the ground and William Buick takes the ride again. Logician, the St Leger winner of 2019, and Ilaraab, up in class but unbeaten in his last six starts, are the biggest dangers.

16:20 – 6f Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Group 1)

In the absence of Starman, all eyes will be on NAHAARR (NAP - 1 point win bet), who was just a neck behind my initial selection for this race when they met in the Group 2 Duke Of York Stakes last month. After that race, jockey Tom Marquand felt he should have won, so he will have the chance to make amends today. Connections have said that he will be at his best with some ease underfoot, so hopefully he will be fine with today’s conditions. Winner of the Ayr Gold Cup last season, this son of Dark Angel clearly has plenty of ability and can handle this step up to the highest level. Art Power, sixth at York, is next best.

17:00 – 6f Wokingham Stakes (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)

Unfortunately, my main selection for this (Chil Chil) was taken out after yesterday’s heavy rain. Despite the presence of a couple of my favourite sprinters in training (Pendleton and King’s Lynn), my money will be going on LAMPANG (0.5 point win bet) and DESERT SAFARI (0.5 point win bet).

King Power’s Lampang arrives here off the back of a recent victory with that coming at Hamilton 16 days ago. That marked a first win since his juvenile season but was deserved given that he’d run well in defeat on a few occasions. He is highly regarded by connections, James Doyle is an eye-catching jockey booking and he has what could be an advantageous high draw. 

My second selection for this ultra-competitive handicap is Desert Safari, who will be ridden by Frankie Dettori. Mark Johnston’s representative has won two of his four starts this season, handles some ease underfoot and is a multiple winner over the six-furlong trip. However, he also has plenty of pace having won over five furlongs and should give it a good go from the front.
