Primo BacioDaryl Carter had a 16/1 winner at Royal Ascot yesterday! He is back in action with an in-depth look at day 4’s card. He has no fewer than six selections on a cracking days racing - with all tips backable via 888sport and their exclusive offer which provides up to £100 in free bets.


TASMAN BAY (3.05 Ascot, 1pt each-way, 12/1)

This is wide open, more so than the market suggests, so a chance is taken on TASMAN BAY, who has bumped into Hurricane Lane and the useful John Leeper on his last two starts, and there doesn't look to be anything of that quality in this race.

At Newmarket last time, he shaped as though a further step up in trip would suit him, and it's to his credit the long-striding type was able to get as close as he did to the winner with the track not suitable for his stride length. He is best judged on his Newbury run, and the form of that looks rock solid in the context of this race, so he is worth chancing at a double-figure price.

SUESA (3.40 Ascot, 1pt win, 9/2)

SUESA has looked right out of the top draw at Chantilly in her four starts travelling powerfully and showing a bright turn of foot to win with ease. Her latest assignment has already seen the second bolt up next time, and her form overall is some of the strongest in France. She looks classy and will love any rain that falls, so she takes my cash.

PRIMO BACIO (4.20 Ascot, 1pt win, 11/2)

She needs to improve again, and the rain may be a concern, but my god, she has put up one of the most impressive performances of any three-year-old (alongside Snowfall) this season.

The 1,000 Guineas form is represented here, but I am not convinced that was a strong race, and Pretty Gorgeous has it to prove after her below-par reappearance effort. It's rare you see such a turn of foot as the one Primo showed at York, and I think this round course will really suit.

SAMOOT (5.00 Ascot, 2pt each-way, 14/1)

SAMOOT is a horse I was really hoping would turn up here at Ascot because she is so well handicapped. In my opinion, this race is the ideal target. She has looked potentially group material in her two starts this term before being undone by a poor draw and a very slow pace at Wolverhampton behind today's favourite.

She chased home the very smart Creative Flare (102) and Statement (106) as a two-year-old at Sandown after being slowly away and closed all the way to the line. This stiff 1m will suit, and she has a very smart turn of foot. She is one of the best-handicapped horses running this week at Royal Ascot in my opinion.

VALYRIAN STEEL (5.35 Ascot, 1pt win, 16/1)

VALYRIAN STEEL took a big step forward on anything that he had achieved previously at Kempton last time, quickening up in a very smart horse. He was always highly touted and didn't handle the Epsom track on seasonal return but is unbeaten in two starts since then and shapes as though he has plenty more to come yet. A 6lbs rise for his latest win underestimates him especially given the second run such a promising race at a big price in the Copper Horse Handicap earlier this week - he is surely a 100 horse in the making.

QUICKTHORN (5.35 Ascot, 1pt win, 6/1)

The same comments apply to QUICKTHORN, who bolted up for us at Haydock on return and is open to such improvement now race fit. He has been hit hard by the handicapper, but he has only had five starts under rules and on the evidence of his easy win last time, he is definitely one to keep on side.
