Royal Ascot Saturday

The fifth and final day of Royal Ascot traditionally takes place on a Saturday, and is headlined by the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes. The race has changed names twice this century, being renamed the Golden Jubilee Stakes in 2002 to reflect the celebrations surrounding The Queen's reign, before being renamed again in 2012.

We have all the latest betting information on the Royal Ascot Day 5 races, along with all the form guides and tips.


Royal Ascot Saturday Race Cards

The opening race on the final day of the meeting is the listed Chesham Stakes, which is a race over seven furlongs for two-year-olds. The race is restricted to horses whose sires won over a mile and two furlongs or further, and last year's Pinatubo went on to win all six of his starts during his juvenile campaign - including twice at Group 1 level.

Following that contest is the Group 3 Jersey Stakes, which is for three-year-olds over a distance of seven furlongs. Some top-class performers have won this race in recent years, including Ribchester (2016) and Expert Eye (2018).

Race three is the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes, which is open to horses aged four and up over a distance of a mile and a half. This  regularly proves to be a platform to bigger and better things, something which is highlighted by a star-studded roll of honour, which includes Harbinger (2010), Sea Moon (2012), Idaho (2017) and Crystal Ocean (2018). 

Ascot Tips

As mentioned above, the feature race on the card is the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. Run over a distance of six furlongs, this race regularly features the very best sprinters from around the world, and foreign raiders from Ireland, the United States and  Australia have all won the race within the past 10 years. The race was restricted to horses aged four and up following the creation of the Commonwealth Cup in 2015.

The penultimate race of the Royal meeting is the hugely-competitive Wokingham Stakes. The race is a six-furlong handicap for horses aged three and up, and regularly features a huge field of up to 30 runners. Punters landed a huge touch in the 2019 renewal with the Roger Varian-trained Cape Byron, who justified 7/2 favouritism to win under Andrea Atzeni.

The final race of the meeting is the Queen Alexandra Stakes, which is a conditions race over two miles, five furlongs and 143 yards. National Hunt yards tend to do particularly well in this race, and Gordon Elliott has won two of the last five renewals with Commissioned (2016) and Oriental Fox (2017), respectively.
