Saturday 24th June is Royal Ascot Day 5, which brings another seven races, with the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes rounding off the festival in style. So far, it has been a rollercoaster of emotions with Frankie Dettori signing off as the winner of the Gold Cup as well as a few other wins for the charismatic Italian legend.
We have had a Royal winner for the newly crowned King and the bookies have enjoyed themselves for the majority of the meeting. Especially when a 150/1 shot won the opening race on Thursday, becoming the first Royal Ascot winner for the relatively new power that is Amo Racing. The weather has been kind and the racing has been pulsating. Time to round off with some winners in our Royal Ascot Day 5 tips!
As we reach the final day of Royal Ascot 2023, our day 5 Royal Ascot tips can be found below with critical information on each of the races. You can also tune in to the ITV coverage, which is sure to show the most intensive moments of the day.

Listed Chesham Stakes – 14:30
ALL OF THE JEWELS AWAIT PEARLS AND RUBIES IN THE CHESHAM
There are actually three that standouts in this race from looking at pedigree, form and scope to improve for the step up to seven furlongs. They are Sayedaty Sadaty, who ran a lovely debut finishing second at Yarmouth three weeks ago. He will likely need further in time but will enjoy this stiff test more than some.
La Guarida was impressive at Goodwood last time out, beating three next time out winners. Her debut was also smart form at Newmarket finishing third that day, the step up to seven furlongs will also bring some improvement.
PEARLS AND RUBIES is trained by A P O’Brien who has won this race a total of five times and four of those in the last seven years. This No Nay Never filly won on debut, flashing home after getting the hang of things in running and looking as though this trip is exactly what is needed. Fillies get a 5lb allowance from the colts too and on a warm day that will help more than normal and could be enough to get the Ballydoyle girl home in front, to kick off our Royal Ascot day 5 tips.
Listed Chesham Stakes
Jersey Stakes – 15:05
OLIVIA MARALDA TO SHINE OVER HER PREFERRED seven FURLONGS
Next up is the Group 3 Jersey Stakes, a seven-furlong race for three-year-olds. The Jersey Stakes sits in between sprinters and those dropping back in trip from a mile.
It is that trip which will suit our selection, OLIVIA MARALDA. She ran a very nice race in the 1000 Guineas on seasonal reappearance, looking like the mile was just out of her reach. This point was proven next time at Epsom where she won very nicely in the listed Surrey stakes over today’s trip. This is a tougher race but she is worth her chance at an each-way (top four) price.
Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes – 15:40
INTERNATIONAL FLAVOUR FOR DETTORI TO SHINE AGAIN ON KINROSS
The international feel continues yet again for this race, with the top of the market dominated by Australian sprinter Artorious who was third last year and Wellington, who arrives from Hong Kong. At their best, they would have an obvious chance, but, in the end, KINROSS is the one to get the vote.
This six-year-old gelding only finished eighth in this race last year, but after that went on and won Group 1 races in France and then back at this course in the Champion sprint stakes. She is joint top on official ratings and will be ridden by Frankie Dettori, who is looking to end on a high.
Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes
Hardwicke Stakes – 16:20
Pyledriver to make a winning return in hukum’s absence
Pyledriver is the highest rated horse in this race but hasn’t been seen since winning the King George over this course and distance last year. Some injury problems have kept this star off the track, but it is great to see him return today. There is always the worry that horses need to get a run into them after such a long break, but he escapes a penalty for the Group 1 contest and if he is on song he could be the one to pull away at the finish at an each-way price.
Wokingham Stakes – 17:00
SHADWELL TO END THE FINAL STRAIGHT COURSE RACE OF THE MEETING ON A HIGH
The Wokingham Stakes, a six-furlong handicap for horses aged three years and older is the final race of Royal Ascot 2023 to be run over the straight course. Plenty of people will be glad of that after some very tough-to-find winners. This year there is no Rohaan, who would have been chasing a hat-trick in the race. The draw this year has been much fairer than usual and so there is little in the way of a draw bias angle.
Instead, the selection of KHANJAR is based on a couple of other things. The first is that trainer W Haggas has only saddled seven runners in this race over the years, he has had one winner and two places, which is a decent record. The second is that the horse has done all of his winning over six furlongs, including a win over course and distance as a two-year-old. He has first-time cheekpieces that may aid his cause and is backable at an each-way (top eight) price in our Royal Ascot day 5 tips.
Golden Gates Handicap – 17:35
IRISH CONNECTIONS TO FIND THE KEY TO THE GOLDEN GATE WITH CUBAN DAWN
This handicap is quite new to Royal Ascot and only three previous runnings of the race have occurred, which makes any trends hard to come by. One thing we do know is that high draw numbers have been successful in all three years of the race and this is quite consistent with other races over the same trip at the meeting. Another positive is for horses that didn’t run in a handicap last time out.
A horse that fits both of these trends is CUBAN DAWN. This Irish-trained two-time runner-up is making his handicap debut and both pedigree and prior performances suggest this step up to ten furlongs will be right up his street. Hollie Doyle takes the ride and it would be great to see a strong finish at a big price.
Golden Gates Handicap
Queen Alexandra Stakes – 18:10
STRATUM LOOKING TO BECOME A HATTRICK HERO FOR tony BLOOM
The final race of Royal Ascot 2023 is the long-distance Queen Alexandra Stakes, the longest race of the week, running over two miles and five and a half furlongs.
It would be foolish not to pick the horse that has won this race the last two times, STRATUM. It seems he saves his best performances for this track and has barely beaten a rival since winning this last year, except for his fourth at this track in the Long Distance Cup on Champions Day.
W P Mullins has already been successful this week with the sensational Vauban and he knows how to win this race, having done it four times in the past. The horse won’t be a big price but will be well prepared for a crack at the hat trick. Take the ten-year-old Tony Bloom-owned Stratum to win.
