What's Our Diamond Jubilee Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?

We've been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's our thoughts ahead of the race:

The Diamond Jubilee Stakes rounds off the Group 1 action of Royal Ascot and is run over 6 furlongs for 4-year-olds and above.
Dream of Dreams heads the market at a best priced of 11/2 and hasn’t been seen since October when finishing 8th at Ascot in the Sprint Stakes on soft ground. He was beaten by a head in this race last year by Hello Youmzain and also by Blue Point the year before, so maybe they could make it third time lucky. However, he is now a 7-year-old and to win here he will have to buck an established trend that has seen 3-to-5-year-olds win all of the last twelve runnings of this renewal.

Of the others, near the top of the betting currently, it appears more likely that Glass Slippers will go for the Kings Stand stakes on Day 1 instead, as mentioned previously, and is better over five furlongs than six. Extravagant Kid is an interesting raider from North America but is also entered in the Kings Stand so it’s unsure where they will go with this one at this moment. He also has eight years behind him, so, as above for Dream of Dreams, he might not fit the necessary age profile to win this race. Glen Shiel is also in there after winning the Sprint Stakes back in October on soft/heavy ground for Hollie Doyle, and despite being another 7-year-old, she could go well if the ground suits.

That leaves us with two 4-year-olds near the front of the market and Art Power is currently 9/1 best price for this race. He won the Prince of Holyrood Handicap at Ascot in impressive style last year and went on to win a Grade 3 at Naas after that. Since then he has been held on three occasions in Group 1 company, finishing fourth twice over 6 furlongs at Haydock and Ascot. Art Power has mainly raced on softer ground as well and was well beaten on his only start on good ground, finishing sixth of eight at York. At the prices , the best value appears to rest instead with Starman at 10/1 – a 4-year-old with bags of potential on decentr ground. He finished 14th of 16 last time out at Ascot in the race won by Glen Shiel, but the bottomless ground on that occasion really didn’t suit. Prior to that. Two successes over six furlongs at York and Doncaster on good ground hints at his potential, with the York run in particular putting him firmly in the mix for this race.

Art Power and Starman face each other this week in the Clipper Logistics Stakes at York, so that will be a big indicator as to how they have progressed over the winter. Right now, all indications point to Starman holding the better prospects at a best price of 10/1 each way.

Our Antepost Bet:

  • Starman 1pt each way

On the day:

 GLEN SHIEL 4.20 – Ascot (6/1) – Another progressive type who won five times last year, including in Champions Sprint over this course and distance. And has won 8 of his races at between 6f and 1m1f, so has plenty of credentials for today.

SCEPTICAL who impressed at Naas is a hot favourite and I am confident he will win that I put him up as the final leg of my Royal Ascot Lucky 15.

The ones to follow him home are likely to be HELLO YOUMZAIN and ONE MASTER

Keith's final choice

15:35 SCEPTICAL 7/2 – [Entered the picture for the Kings Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot with a comprehensive drubbing of a decent field at Naas where he galloped clear before crossing the line eased down. ] Sidestepped the Kings Stand and the mighty Battaash to run in this. Has won her last four races and can continue to progress in the same manner. The tough mare ONE MASTER has to be respected especially if there is more rain.

How it fared

SCEPTICAL 3rd – Tracked the leader in the centre and took things up inside the final furlong. Had no extra when headed, went down by a head and a neck.

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

This is what Keith said about the 2019 Diamond Jubilee Stakes:

Leading Contenders
INVINCIBLE ARMY 5/1 – Running better than ever this season winning both starts including a Group 2 at York last time.
BLUE POINT 5/1 – Won the King’s Stand at last year’s Royal Ascot and is more likely to be routed to that race again. Has hit the ground running this season with three Group wins in Meydan.
THE TIN MAN 12/1 – Won the Sprint Cup at Haydock last year on heavy going. Would need significant rain to get competitive in this.
CITY LIGHT 14/1 – French raider. Hasn’t quite made his mark at this level.

Keith’s ante-post selection was INVINCIBLE ARMY 5/1, who is running out of his skin this season and looks ready to step up to the top level.

On the day Keith went again for value, selecting SANDS OF MALI at 16/1 for an each way bet.
