Timeform assess the in-play angles for two races at Royal Ascot...
Race: 15:05 - Hardwicke Stakes
Pace Forecast: Contested.
Specific Pace Hint: With no shortage of likely pace-forcers, Ektihaam may need to be ridden further back than in its recent starts: The stronger the pace the better for Sir John Hawkwood, who looks to have a suitable scenario here.
Individual Price Hint: Sir John Hawkwood has traded at more than 2 times BSP twice when winning during its last 5 starts.
Race: 15:45 - Diamond Jubilee Stakes
Pace Forecast: Strongly contested.
Specific Pace Hint: There is a chance of a pace burnout early, and Rosdhu Queen and Mince are two who could suffer: A proliferation of possible pace-forcers could set things up for those coming from further back: Dandy Boy and Hawkeyethenoo are two who may benefit.
Individual Price Hint: Slade Power traded at more than 5 times BSP and 2 times BSP when winning on 2 of its last 5 starts: Sirius Prospect has traded at 50% or less of BSP 4 times on its last 5 starts.
