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

    Being over a marathon trip a confirmed stayer is a prerequisite. Andrew Balding runners are worthy of a second look as are any National Hunt bred horses from the likes of Alan King. King’s WHO DARES WINS is a likely type as is Baldings NATE THE GREAT but the market leader is MEKONG.

    Keith's final choice

    NATE THE GREAT 16:40 Ascot 11/2 – This horse looks like he will make a decent hurdler in time but is worthy of taking a chance in this marathon flat race first. Best run last year came on soft at Lingfield when third to the subsequent Derby winner. The massive step up in trip will suit him. 11/2 is skinny for an each way so unless there is a drift I am recommending a win only bet.

    How it fared

    NATE THE GREAT 4th – Raced wide first 2 furlongs, tracked leader, lost 2nd approaching final furlong, weakened inside the final furlong. WHO DARES WINS won.
