Royal Ascot Horse Racing Betting Tips 18/06/2022

Royal Ascot Racing

The Royal Ascot race week is well underway and there is plenty of action to be found at the high-profile event this Saturday. We look ahead to the big races taking place on the closing day of the festival on Saturday, so read our free Royal Ascot Horse Racing Betting Tips 18/06/2022. Among these are esteemed races, including the Diamond Jubilee and the Queen Alexandra Stakes. To keep track of the action at Ascot this weekend, bettors can view the action live from 1:30 p.m. on ITV. 

Hardwicke Stakes (3:40 p.m)

Firstly, we look at some picks from the Hardwicke Stakes race at Royal Ascot. Currently, Hurricane Lane is the favourite to win the one-mile, four-furlong race. Last season, Hurricane Lane finished third in the Derby and Arc, showing potential for the four-year-old. Also, the horse, trained by Charlie Appleby, has won six of his eight flat races, making him a solid choice at 8/11, provided by Coral. However, a good outside choice for the Hardwicke Stakes is Third Realm. The four-year-old impressed at Goodwood in May, finishing first over one mile and four furlongs. As a result, as an alternative, Third Realm is a good selection with odds of 9/1, offered by Bet365

Platinum Jubilee Stakes (4:20 p.m) 

Bettors looking for an outsider bet at Ascot this weekend can look towards the six furlongs Platinum Jubilee stakes. In the last ten Platinum Jubilee stakes, an outsider has finished first. A solid choice though could be one of the favourites. Four-year-old Campanelle is trained by Wesley Ward, a trainer with experience in this race. Ward led Undrafted to victory in 2015 and his Campanelle comes with good value to succeed with odds of 10/1 provided by Ladbrokes. However, our pick for the Platinum Jubilee stakes is Highfield Princess. The five-year-old, trained by John Quinn, impressed in May and April, winning at York and Newcastle and, at 20/1 odds, provided by Paddy Power, Highfield Princess comes with good odds to notch a third consecutive win. 

Queen Alexandra Stakes (6:10 p.m)

The Royal Ascot weekend concludes with the longest race of the calendar, the two miles and six-furlong Queen Alexandra stakes. Out of the current field of 12 runners, four-year-old Wordsworth appears to be the leading favourite to win the Queen Alexandra stakes on Saturday. Wordsworth has previous experience over long distances, but the chestnut colt has not fared well in recent races, finishing fourth at the two-mile track at Ascot in April 2022. Yet, Bet365 are still offering decent odds of 7/2 for Wordsworth to win his first stakes race. Alternatively, bettors may find better value from one of the current outsiders. Eight-year-old Earlofthecotswolds has impressed over longer distances in 2022. The Black Gelding has won three of the five races he entered in the 2022 season, finishing first at the two-mile track at Kempton in March and then sealing victory over two and a half miles at Newcastle in April. With current odds of 22/1, provided by William Hill, represent excellent value to cap the Queen Alexandra Stakes on Saturday.
