Who To Follow On Day Four At Royal Ascot

Horse To Follow - Eye Of Heaven

One of our big fancies on the Friday is the Mark Johnston trained Eye Of Heaven in the Group Two Norfolk Stakes over five furlongs.

The two year old was electric on debut at Newmarket when winning a very nice Novice contest that has since gone on to be franked in form.

The third that day, was the Queen's horse called Tactical and that won at the festival on Wednesday and in the same race, the second placed Get It also ran a big race finishing fourth.If handling the soft conditions will be very tough to beat.

Trainer To Follow - Francis-Henri Graffard

Francis-Henri Graffard has only brought over one horse from France to run at Royal Ascot on Friday and we think that needs to be noticed.

In June the trainer has been in fine form currently running at a 33% strike rate back home and in the past French horses have not been shy of running big races.

Graffard has a decent record at Ascot overall having taken four horses to the track in the last 12 months and grabbing one win which leaves him with a 25% strike rate at the track.

On Friday he fields Wooded who made a very pleasing start to the season when being a clearcut winner in a Group Three.

Soft ground seems to be his game and with the conditions softening he should enter the frame.

Jockey To Follow - James Doyle

James Doyle had a really good day at Ascot on Wednesday landing a double which included a winner for the Queen on board Tactical.

We think he will have another stand out day on Friday with a lovely book of rides and we especially like the look of two of them at different ends of the card.

He starts the day on Golden Dragon for Ian Williams and in his four starts to date he has two wins and last time out finished a close up fifth in a Group Three at Newmarket which came on wet ground.

He also gets the ride on the three year old French raider Wooded who made a very pleasing start to the season when being a decent winner in a Group Three.
