Timeform's SmartPlays team pick out their three best bets on the penultimate day of Royal Ascot 2015...


"There's little to separate French-raider Ervedya and Irish 1000 Guineas runner-up Found on Timeform ratings so it's the former who is selected at likely bigger odds."

Laxfield Road - 14:30 Royal Ascot

Laxfield Road left her rivals for dead when bolting up by 11 lengths on debut at Keeneland in April and could give her handler yet more Royal Ascot success with improvement on the cards. Illuminate beat a subsequent listed race winner from her yard first-time up at Salisbury and is the obvious danger, while Spanish Romance is an interesting raider from France.


Ervedya - 16:20 Royal Ascot

There's little to separate French-raider Ervedya and Irish 1000 Guineas runner-up Found on Timeform ratings so it's the former who is selected at likely bigger odds. Jim Bolger's 1000 Guineas runner-up Lucida is another who looks sure to be competitive in what looks an up-to-scratch renewal of this Group 1 prize.


Igider - 17:00 Royal Ascot

Igider looked like one very much on the up when scoring at Doncaster recently and gets the nod in a typically wide-open renewal. Astronereus took another step forward when narrowly fending off a next-time-out winner at Newmarket in May, and looks a big danger, along with Arab Dawn who was third in the same Newmarket race.
