Welcome to arseonlineracing. This website is curated by 2 racing enthusiasts, has NO affiliate links & is 100% independent… Thanks for joining us for Day 4 of our Royal Ascot coverage… 

Before we get into todays racing, lets just take a moment to reflect in the brilliance of Frankie Dettori… Rich was lucky to interview the great man & to have 4 winners in one day at Royal Ascot is quite an achievement!

Now a recap of yesterday before we get into the head to head…
RECAP…..

Charlie – Sangarius won, Fleeting was 2nd.
Jamie – Air Force Jet (Unplaced) Frankellina (Unplaced) Cross Counter (Unplaced)

.
Rich – Air Force Jet (Unplaced) Roseman (Unplaced) Stradivarius (Legend) Velorum (Unplaced)

.
Head to Head result –

Charlie  Sir Ron Priestley (Unplaced)

Jamie Constantinople(2nd)

Rich(Questionaire) Unplaced.

Todays head to head race…. 4.20 Coronation Cup… Fillies’ Group 1… 3YO Only… 1m..

Charlie – Jubiloso – Winner of first 2 starts at Chelmsford over 6f in a Class 3 Maiden beating Dominus by 2 and 3/4 lengths. 2nd win came at Newbury over 7f in a Class 4 when seeing off After John by some 7 lengths. This race is deeper than previous two starts and this half sister to Frankel will have to delve into the reserves to get involved here but is definitely heading in the right direction and is available around the 11/2 price at time of writing.

.

Jamie –  Hermosa… The dual Guineas winner looks for a hat trick in the Coronation Stakes. Hermosa is a rock-solid Filly who likes to get to the front and fend off her rivals. That running style does make her vulnerable, but she has obviously progressed very well over the winter and has looked like the best 3yo to my eyes so far this campaign. I think Jubiloso will get alongside but find the Ballydoyle star too tough to
pass. Worthy favourite!

.
Rich – Hermosa… The double 1,000 Guineas winner is a full sister to Hydrangea and on May 5th(Season return) landed the 1,000 Guineas 1m at Newmarket from Lady Kaya & completed the double by taking the Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh on May 26th by 5 lengths from Pretty Pollyanna when going from the front by 5 lengths. Sired by Galileo, stamina assured!

Right… That’s the H2H sorted, now back to the rest of the card… Charlie has his 3, while Jamie has his thoughts on Day 4 & Rich will have the Final Word…

Charlie –

5.00 Nonchalance -Was 4th on debut at Wolverhampton on the 7th May when behind Tempus. Won next two starts at Haydock and Newmarket, Haydock victory was 3 lengths ahead of runner up Infuse. The Newmarket victory saw nonchalant beat Flarepath by 1 and 1/4 lengths. Nonchalance looks unexposed over this distance and with normal progression can get involved here but will need a bit of luck in running to win but at 7-1 could grab a place.

.

5.35 Baghdad -Won here over course and distance last year when landing the King George V Handicap, had a fractured cannon bone and had missed almost 10 months of racing until making comeback at Newcastle in April this year, finished 3rd there over 1m 4f to Bartholomeu Dias. Baghdad made no mistake on next start when winning at Newmarket over 1m 4f beating Corelli by 1/2 length. Still looks well treated on all known form and can get involved here main danger comes in the shape of Fujaira Prince who hasn’t been out of the first 2 places in 5 starts but my preference is for Baghdad to land this race and at 4-1 is a win bet.

Jamie – 

3.05 – King Edward VII Stakes – Japan
The Ballydoyle horses are in good form and Japan is surely one of the
safer bets on day 4. The big strappy Son of Galileo improved for his
blowout at York in the Dante when he stayed on well to finish a close
third in the Epsom Derby… That was a superb effort and with the
form being boosted by Derby Sixth Circus Maximus, he holds the key
to this race on all known form. The more the ground dries out the
better…

5.00 – Sandringham Stakes – Maamora e/w
Simon Crisford’s runner finally shed her maiden tag at Ripon last
time out when winning easily by six lengths. Connections will be
happy enough with her opening mark for her handicap debut, the
handicapper has given her a chance. Wayne Lordan is an eye-
catching booking and hopefully she can latch onto the pace and
power home for a place here.

5.35 – Duke of Edinburgh Stakes – Fujaira Prince
This will take some winning… I always keep a close eye on Sheikh
Obaid’s horses and Fujaira Prince has been a real slowly progressing
horse who still hasn’t reached his ceiling. For his age (5yo) he has
only raced five times and based on his last run he looks well handicapped to me when he just went down to First Eleven at York. His draw is fine and with the ground coming in his in his favour he must have a great shout of winning this.
