What's Keith's Duke of Edinburgh 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 Duke of Edinburgh Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

Leading contenders include DURSTAN, HEREBY, WEST END CHARMER and EL MISK.

Keith's final choice

WEST END CHARMER 16:40 Ascot 6/1 each way – [Quickly out of the stalls and proceeded to make all winning easily. Is likely to be stepped up to Listed class.] Not tried in Listed class yet but this valuable prize is here for the taking. Looks well treated under his penalty. Mark Johnston has a good record in this race.

How it fared

WEST END CHARMER 3RD – They were not hanging around considering this was a middle distance race on softish going. WEST END CHARMER attempted to make all and was caught and passed late on but we got third and a bit of place money.

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 Duke of Edinburgh Stakes:

Keith tip went for an each way shout in FUJAIRA PRINCE which was 13/2 when advised.

Royal Ascot Duke of Edinburgh Stakes Results 2019
1 Baghdad 7/2
2 Ben Vrackie 7/1
3 Fujaira Prince 4/1
4 Corgi 7/1

Our Verdict:
19 ran; sh, 1½l, 1¼l
If you took the advised price of 13/2 you will have seen a small return for your money with Keith’s selection of Fujaira Prince, however it was Baghdad which was in the members choice which went on to win the race by a short head. Fujaira Prince only managed 3rd place, behind Ben Vrackie who was denied the first place by a short head.
