Now back to our professional horse racing tips.

14:30 The Norfolk Stakes (Group 2)

Vintage Brut looks likely to continue its upward form today and keep his winning record in tact. 9/2 is a decent price for this up and comer.

Vintage Brute – 9/2

15:05  The Hampton Court Stakes (Group 3)

This race could turn up a double digit winner so we are taking a chance on an improving sort. National Army posted a good time on debut and should improve.

National Army 10/1 Each Way

15:40 The Ribblesdale Stakes (Group 2)

Wild Illusion looks like the best bet of the day. Having ran very credibly in Group 1 company, this drop down in class should ensure some bold type on UK soil.

Wild Illusion 3/1 

16:20 The Gold Cup (Group 1) (British Champions Series)

This is between Stradivarius and Order Of St George. We are unusually going against the O’Brien horse on this occasion as we think it prefers the ground a bit softer and the firmer ground will be the deciding factor in this battle.

Stradivarius – 2/1

17:00 The Britannia Stakes (Heritage Handicap)

This is another open handicap. We like the look of Ventura Knight. Well weighted, has great speed figures on going and at distance, and comes from an in form stable.

Ventura Knight 20/1 Each Way

17:35 The King George V Stakes (Handicap)

Communique is drawn wide but it is a front runner and has posted the best speed figures and looks to be improving. This is quite an open race so happy to avoid as very hard to find a real strong angle here.

Communique 9/1 Each Way
