Race 1 (Norfolk Stakes): Walbank (7/4), 9:30 am ET
Race 2 (King George V Stakes): Yashin (14/1), 10:05 am ET
Race 3 (Ribblesdale Stakes): Life Of Dreams (5/1), 10:40 am ET
Race 4 (Ascot Gold Cup): Princess Zoe (7/1), 11:20 am ET
Race 5 (Britannia Stakes): Saga (12/1), 12:00 pm ET
This is a typically tricky big-field Ascot handicap race. SAGA disappointed in his handicap debut last month, but had previously looked to have the ability to compete at an even higher level than this. King Of Time and Yonafis are dangerous contenders with lower weights, while Amortentia and Whoputfiftyinyou are also worth considering.
Race 6 (Hampton Court Stakes): Reach For The Moon (1/2), 12:35 pm ET
Race 7 (Buckingham Palace Stakes): Montassib (9/2), 1:10 pm ET
