What's Keith's Chesham Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers.  He's been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

Key stats: Eleven of the last twelve winners wore no headgear, the other one had on a first-time hood. Draw – Eleven of the last twelve winners were drawn in stalls 1 to 8.

Winners of this race often turn out to be a bit special PINATUBO took it last year. MODERN NEWS, BATTLEGROUND and BRIGHT DEVIL look like the three to concentrate on.

Keith's final choice

MODERN NEWS 15:00 Ascot 100/30 – Kept on well to score over 6 furlongs on debut and should have no worries with this extra furlong. Connections won this last year with Pinatubo. The Irish vibe is that BATTLEGROUND has been laid out for this but my belief is that GOLDEN FLAME is the bigger danger to our selection.

How it fared

MODERN NEWS 5TH – Never really picked up probably more down to the going than the trip. BATTLEGROUND won really well as he pleased.

To be certain of getting Keith's final thoughts on every Royal Ascot race, make sure you have joined the FRT VIP Club.

His selection for this race was PINATUBO which was advised at 7/2 to win.

Plenty of support for Ryan Moore’s Lope Y Fernendez in the first race, with over 35% of the selections.  Pinatubo gets 22.9% of the votes, whilst Raul Da Silva’s ride, Highland Chief receives just over 10%

Royal Ascot Chesham Stakes Results 2019
1 Pinatubo 3/1
2 Lope Y Fernandez 5/4F
3 Highland Chief 14/1
14 ran NR: Dark Kris, Joker On Jack, Mohican Heights
Distances: 3¼l, 1¼l, 2¼l
Our Verdict:

Keith was bang on with his selection, winning by over 3 lengths, PINATUBO turned over the favourite Lope Y Fernendez which was favoured by our members too. An impressive finish as it leaves Lope Y Fernendez behind to take the second spot. A good result for Keith, a good result for those who followed him, and a good result for Jamie Doyle and Godolphin too!
