Royal Ascot Day 5 Races & Tips

2.30pm Chesham Stakes

The final day of Royal Ascot 2025 begins with the Chesham Stakes – which is one of the more unusual races run at Royal Ascot. This 7f Listed contest is unique in that it is restricted to horses whose sires won over a distance of ten furlongs or further. Ryan Moore has enjoyed notable success in the Chesham in recent seasons, having ridden six winners since 2011 – all of those victories coming for horses trained by Aidan O’Brien. Bedtime Story put in a remarkable performance to score by 9 1/2 lengths in 2024

3.05pm Hardwicke Stakes

The Hardwicke Stakes is a Group 2 for horses aged four-year-olds and older that is run over a 1m4f distance. The Hardwicke often acts as a good trial for the following month’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, which is run over the same course and distance. Sir Michael Stoute’s Harbinger was the last horse to complete the Hardwicke – King George VI double back in 2010. Harbinger’s Hardwicke victory was just one of an incredible 11 in the race for trainer Sir Michael Stoute – who is the most successful trainer in the race’s history.

3.45pm Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes

The feature race on the final day of Royal Ascot 2024 is the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes. This race has been renamed in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, whose passion for Horse Racing and Royal Ascot was there for all to see. This 6f Group 1 is open to horses aged four or older – and three-year-old runners foaled in the Southern Hemisphere. Aidan O’Brien took advantage of this quirky race qualification when training the Australian-bred Merchant Navy to land the 2018 Diamond Jubilee. The Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes tends to attract entrants that participated in the opening day’s King’s Stand Stakes, with Blue Point the last horse to complete the Diamond Jubilee – King’s Stand double back in 2019. Khaadem became the first horse for over 60 years to win the race in back-to-back seasons in 2024.

4.25pm Jersey Stakes

The Jersey Stakes is the first Group race run on day 5 of Royal Ascot 2024. Assigned Group 3 classification, the Jersey Stakes is run over 7f on Ascot’s straight track. Sir Michael Stoute is currently the most successful trainer in the race’s history, having trained six winners – the most recent of those wins coming courtesy of Expert Eye (2018). The Jersey Stakes is usually contested by horses that didn’t quite see out the mile distance of the British, French and Irish 2000 Guineas’. Therefore, it is worth keeping an eye on any entrants in 2024 that took part in those contests.

5.05pm Wokingham Stakes

The Wokingham Handicap is a 6f sprint and is often considered one of the week’s toughest punting puzzles to solve, with upwards of 20 runners regularly taking their chance in the race. Five horses have won the Wokingham Handicap more than once, with the most recent of those dual winners being Rohaan, who followed up his 2021 win with victory in the race in 2022.

5.40pm Golden Gates Stakes

The Golden Gates Stakes is a 1m2f handicap that is open to three-year-old horses. This race had its inaugural renewal as recently as 2020, which was won by the Paul & Oliver Cole trained Highland Chief.

6.15pm Queen Alexandra Stakes

Royal Ascot 2024 concludes with the Queen Alexandra Stakes. This race is open to horses aged four or older and is run over a distance of 2m5f – making it the longest flat race run in Britain. The Queen Alexandra Stakes often features runners who contested the opening day’s Ascot Stakes. With the Willie Mullins trained Simenon the last horse to complete the Ascot Stakes – Queen Alexandra double back in 2012.

Royal Ascot Day 5 Betting Tips

In six of the last seven years at Royal Ascot, the ground has been good or quicker, with the only exception being on soft ground in 2021, after heavy ground on day four that year. As such, every year since 2015 has seen the ground run at least as quickly as the previous day, but mostly quicker.

In terms of the feature race and favourite backers, only three of the last ten renewals of the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes have gone to the market leaders with there having been a dramatic shift in the last two seasons. 33/1 and 80/1 winners claimed the race in 2022 and 2023, so do not rule out the big outsiders.

Royal Ascot Day 5 Underdogs

With 33/1 and 80/1 winners in the last two renewals, the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes knows how to produce some enormous shocks. However, the market for the 2025 running is yet to be determined, and it could be a sprinting superstar will go off at odds-on for the contest.

One race which will throw up some underdogs is the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes, and one of the underdogs we suggested on this page for the 2024 renewal, Isle Of Jura, won the race at odds of 16/1.

Expected Ground Conditions on Day 5

With the ground racing quickly for the start of the week, do not expect too many changes between Tuesday and Saturday. Rain looks set to stay away, but as is always the case with the British weather, this is a fast moving situation.
