Fri 19 Jun 2020

Golden Horde (5-1) was a winner for the Tote's Kevin O'Malley on Friday. Find out his three dark horses for Saturday's racing action at Royal Ascot.

It is the final day of what has been a truly extraordinary week at Royal Ascot. Without the fanfare, carnival and high fashion, the action on the track was allowed to truly shine on the big stage.

So many memorable moments and we have more to come with an exceptionally good Saturday card to look forward to.

Below, you will discover a trio of dark horses well worth keeping an eye out for.

1:15 Royal Ascot: HAPPY ROMANCE

Aidan O’Brien’s More Beautiful could prove too progressive and classy for this Group Two sprint over five furlongs, but she is short enough in the betting and at the likely odds, I like the look of Richard Hannon’s HAPPY ROMANCE.

This athletic Dandy Man filly easily won a match at Sandown last week and it is difficult to get a handle on what she achieved in terms of form.

However, her A to B speed was excellent and she improved incredibly well from an underwhelming Newmarket debut nine days prior.

The way she moved at Sandown was nice to watch. A big-striding type, she lengthened out well to the line and had loads to spare. This will be her third run in quick succession but Richard Hannon’s charge seems in very good spirits now and she might just be well up to this standard.

2:25 Royal Ascot: RUN WILD

The presence of Quadrilateral and Jessica Harrington’s Alpine Star means we could get a decent price about RUN WILD, a progressive John Gosden-trained filly who couldn’t have been more impressive in winning the Pretty Polly at Newmarket first time out.

The form has taken a knock or two since, but she beat some good quality fillies and she did so emphatically. The speed figure produced there is the best on Racing Post time ratings, this drop in trip to a stiff mile is sure to suit. I’d be disappointed if she fails to produce a really big effort if continuing her upward curve.

Oisin Murphy rides Sharing for US trainer Graham Motion, so James Doyle makes for a more than able substitute aboard the daughter of Aramon.

3:35pm Royal Ascot: ONE MASTER

Having finished third in the Queen Anne here last year andenjoyed some classy efforts in defeat over a mile last season,

ONE MASTER produced some classy efforts in defeat over a mile last season, including when third in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

She has been gradually seeking that big opening over shorter and her chance may well come here.

Last seen finishing second to Donjuan Triumphant in the Qipco British Champions Sprint in October, William Haggas’ filly is a proper Group One performer on her day and deserves to land a big one.

It is hard to know how strong a renewal of the Diamond Jubilee this is but there are obviously several high-class operators on show.

Nonetheless, One Master is the fifth highest rated here and gets her usual 3lb sex allowance.

She likes the track and will enjoy the ground plus James Doyle resumes duty aboard a filly he knows well and the pair look set to have an interesting say in the business end of the Group One feature on a fantastic Saturday.
