Each-way potential in Dalghar at 12/1

With a couple of massive fields, tomorrow's action at Royal Ascot provides some big betting opportunities for punters to either sign out on a high or try and get their money back after what has been an up and down week.

The feature on the final day of the meeting is the Group One Golden Jubilee Stakes over six-furlongs where the Charles O'Brien-trained Bewitched is quite a confident selection at 7/1.

However, one at an each-way price of 12/1 is the Andrew Balding-trained Dalghar who has the credentials to stay the six-furlongs better than most in the field and he'll also handle the ground, which is a big plus, so he's worth keeping on-side in a competitive race.

Tomorrow's card is certainly the toughest of the week and, in the Wokingham, Johnny Murtagh could have found himself a good spare ride on the James Fanshawe-trained Deacon Blues.


The four-year-old was touched off last time but seems to be versatile on most ground. He is again at the sort of price that could see him included in bets such as each way Patents or Lucky 15s along with the likes of Bewitched.

Things look a bit more straight forward in the Hardwicke Stakes where Await The Dawn is set to end the week on a positive note for Aidan O'Brien but he's only an even-money shot at best and other value is searched for.

One at an each-way price is the William Haggas-trained Harris Tweed (pictured), who is a plum spare ride for leading jockey of the week chaser Richard Hughes.

The four-year-old was third to St Nicholas Abbey last time on quick ground at Chester but he is proven to stay and will enjoy a cut in the ground after the rain today and at 20/1 he's much better value than Await The Dawn at odds on.
