Race of the day

The Gold Cup (4.15) and its three-time winner Stradivari­us (right) deservedly take centre stage as Bjorn Nielsen’s superstar stayer goes in search of history as he bids to win his fourth Gold Cup (and his fifth consecutiv­e race at Royal Ascot). To further add to the intrigue, he tackles Subjectivi­st, a horse Mark Johnston has described as his best chance of beating Stradivari­us, and last year’s Derby winner Serpentine among a host of high-class stayers in what looks a vintage renewal of the race.

Bet of the day

In three career starts, Nagano (5.35) has shaped very much as a potential stakes performer of the future and can take plenty of beating now he tackles 1m4f for the first time in the King George V Stakes. An opening handicap mark of 94 looks to considerab­ly underestim­ate his potential.
