Here at Pickswise we will be providing free picks and predictions for every single race, so let’s see how our experts see the 4th day’s racing going. Odds shown are a guide for information only.
Race 1 (Albany Stakes): Mawj (5/2), 9:30 am ET
Race 2 (Commonwealth Cup): Ehraz (6/1), 10:05 am ET
Race 3 (Duke of Edinburgh Stakes): Cemhaan (16/1), 10:40 am ET
Race 4 (Coronation Stakes): Discoveries (7/1), 11:20 am ET
Race 5 (Sandringham Stakes): Heredia (4/1), 12:00 pm ET
The Group 1 Falmouth Stakes entry HEREDIA did very well to maintain her unbeaten record at York last time, having found trouble in running, and she can make it 4-4 with the step up to 1m likely to be a plus. Second choice, at a much bigger price, is No Nay Nicki who made some late headway in a Listed race at York last month and could relish this big-field scenario over a stiff, straight mile.
The well-bred Invigilate is next on the list, ahead of her Nottingham conqueror Washraa, with Gatecrasher Girl and Persist others who are open to further improvement. Crenelle isn’t written off, while last-time-out Doncaster winner Fresh Hope represents Charlie Fellowes and Hayley Turner who won this in 2019 and 2020.
Race 6 (King Edward VII Stakes): Ottoman Fleet (2/1), 12:35 pm ET
Race 7 (Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes): Ladies Church (6/1), 1:10 pm ET
