Highfield Princess will win the aptly named Platinum Jubilee Stakes

Horse racing fans don’t have to wait long for Royal Ascot to begin and the final day of the five-day festival should top it all off.

The biggest flat festival starts on Tuesday 14th June until Saturday 18th June and over the five days there are 35 races including several group competitions.


Racegoers will want to return to Berkshire in their thousands after restricted numbers were enforced last year

The British Champions Series and classic races that run throughout the flat season follow one another at Royal Ascot with at least two races a day featuring the world’s top rated horses.

Hardwicke Stakes Betting Tip

Hukum 10/3

Hukum wins at Ascot in October in difficult conditions

Hukum fought for Owen Burrows in the Coronation Cup at Epsom earlier this month beating Pyledriver by more than four lengths.

1m4f is the perfect trip for this 5-year-old and has won over £600,000 in Shadwell Estate colours.

The Sea The Stars horse was close behind in a Group 1 at Meydan but all just a few lengths away and despite being less than two lengths behind Shahryar he finished seventh.

This saw him leave at 11/4 at Epsom Racecourse and was ultimately overpriced and bolted.

More of the same can be expected, but Charlie Appleby’s backyard favorite Hurricane Lane will have to be fended off.

Platinum Jubilee Stakes Betting Tip

Princess Highfield 12/1

Highfield Princess is also in form at Royal Ascot by winning in 2021 in The Buckingham Palace Stakes on day three

Despite the big pelotons in this race every year, the huge underdogs don’t tend to take a look.

Four of the last ten races have seen the first one lap favorite and eight of the last ten renewals have seen odds of 9/2 or less.

Trainer Wesley Ward for the United States is set to bring his 4-year-old Campanelle to this race with the aim of winning this race for the second time after winning it in 2015 – back when she called the Diamond Jubilee – with Undrafted at 14/1.

It was also revealed this week that all of its riders will be ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr, a prominent Puerto Rican jockey who is often at the forefront of North American racing.

Ward could send Golden Pal in this race as well, but he’s favorite for the King’s Stand Stakes on Tuesday.

Highfield Princess could well beat the field of 28 but at odds of around 12/1 in the ante-post market.

The horse trained by John Quinn won the Group 2 Duke Of York Stakes in May and could continue to improve on this 6ft journey.
