2021 Royal Ascot Day One Tips

Race 2 - Coventry Stakes Tips

Wesley Ward has chosen to pitch filly Kaufymaker against the colts, and he was particularly bullish about her chances in his Royal Ascot stable tour. Ward may have tasted victory during the Royal meeting eleven times, but all of his pattern winners have come in five furlong races and fillies' haven't got a good record in the Coventry.

I quite fancy an each-way punt on THE ORGANISER, who quickened clear of some decent rivals to win easily on debut at York. Joe Tuite's juvenile is out of a Royal Applause mare and his sire, Coach House finished a close second to No Nay Never in the 2013 Norfolk Stakes. David Egan takes the ride, and The Organiser looks overpriced to me at 20/1.

Race 3 - King's Stand Stakes Tips

To see if we're taking on defending champion Battaash, take a look at our guide to the 2021 King's Stand Stakes.

Race 5 - Ascot Stakes Tips

M C Muldoon5:00pm Ascot Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2) 2m4fGET 4/1 HERE
New customers only. 18+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.

National Hunt trainers, or well-known dual-purpose handlers, have saddled 18 of the last 21 winners of this staying handicap. So, given that record and how dominant Irish horses have been in Britain during 2021, it's no surprise to see three Irish jumps horses dominating this betting heat.

Ryan Moore, who's ridden three of Willie Mullins' four Ascot Stakes winners, has been booked to ride M C MULDOON, who placed in a Grade Two over hurdles last season. Before joining Mullins' stable, this son of Mastercraftsman reached a mark of 100 on the flat, so to find him running off a mark of just 96 is a chance I don't want to pass up.

Race 6 - Wolferton Stakes Tips

Patrick Sarsfield5:35pm Wolferton Stakes (Listed Race) 1m2fGET 4/1 HERE
18+ only. Ts and Cs apply. Gamble responsibly.

I'm going to have to side with the Irish again and back PATRICK SARSFIELD, who really impressed over 10-furlongs last season. Joseph O'Brien's charge won the Group Three Meld Stakes, finished a close third behind Barney Roy out in Germany and followed this year's Prix Ganay winner, Skalleti home on his French debut in the Prix Dollar.

On his reappearance, Patrick Sarsfield attempted to give stacks of weight to several dangerous three-year-olds in the Orby Stakes, and was only beaten a head by Reve De Vol. Tom Marquand's mount will surely come on for that outing and he could be very hard to beat.

Race 7 - Copper Horse Stakes Tips

If Willie Mullins does win the Ascot Stakes, then I'm sure there will be an almighty gamble on current favourite Saldier. I, however, would much rather side with SLEEPING LION, who produced a career-best effort on his first start for Roger Charlton at Kempton.

Sleeping Lion claimed his first win over two miles that day, beating Postileo by a neck when he was giving ten pounds to the talented runner-up. Until that point, all of Sleeping Lions' best performances had come over this very distance. Although he's yet to win at this venue, Charlton's six-year-old has placed on all three of his previous runs around Ascot. 

Kieran Shoemark's mount ran up to an RPR of 110 at Kempton and he's used to carrying plenty of weight. Off a fresh mark of 101, I'm expecting Sleeping Lion to be very competitive in day one's curtain closer.
