Royal Ascot Day 5 Tips - Race times & Fixtures
Royal Ascot Day 5 Tips 2021 – Saturday 19th June
Super Saturday at Royal Ascot 2021, with some really tough handicaps to solve and Group race quality on offer in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at 4.20pm.
The usual packed out crowd will be missing this year, with most of the public enclosures closed and only 4000 spectators allowed to attend, but that will not detract from the fantastci action on the track (with the betting action online and the off-course bookmakers sure to bet very competitively as they bid to attract custom).

Chesham Stakes 2021
Race 1, Saturday, June 19th, 2:30pm
Saturday at the Royal meeting has something for every follower of the turf, and begins with a 7f test for two year olds (who have to be sired by a winner at 1m2f plus). There have been some high class winners in recent years who have duly gone on to be top level performers down the line, with Pinatubo in 2019 proving a top class winner for Charlie Appleby and James Doyle.
Jersey Stakes 2021
Race 2, Saturday, June 19th, 3:05pm
The Jersey Stakes is run over 7f and is open to 3-y-o’s only, with a history dating back to 1919 and prize money in 2021 of £44,400 to the winner. It provides a good opening for progressive performers to jump out of handicap compnay, and Roger Varian’s Molatham landed a hefty gamble on the day in 2020 under a confident ride from Jim Crowley.
Hardwicke Stakes 2021
Race 3, Saturday, June 19th, 3:40pm
A Group 2 with a rich history dating back to 1879 and providing an opening for older horses aged 4-y-o and upwards. The near 1m4f trip provides a proper test in what is always a true run race, and in 2020 John Gosden’s Fanny Logan ran out a very game winner under an inspired ride from Frankie Dettori.
Diamond Jubilee Stakes 2021
Race 4, Saturday, June 19th, 4:20pm
This Group 1 sprint dates back to 1868 and is open to 4-y-o’s and upwards over the six furlong trip. There was a rare win for the north in 2020 when Kevin Ryan’s unconsidered Hello Youmzain sprang something of a surprise, well ridden by Kevin Stott on his first winner at the Royal meeting.
Wokingham Stakes 2021
Race 5, Saturday, June 19th, 5:00pm
One of the oldest handicaps in the entire turf calender, dating back to 1813 and always providing a terrific spectacle as a huge field fans out up the straight over the 6f trip. Kevin Ryan’s Hey Jonesey sprang an 18/1 surprise in 2020, completing a memorable double on the day under Kevin Stott, and he could well be back to try and repeat the feat in 2021.
Golden Gates 2021
Race 6, Saturday, June 19th, 5:35pm
This class 2 handicap was intrduced at the Royal meeting for the first time in 2020, and has been retained for 2021 as the programme has been permanently extended to 7 races per day. The 1m2f trip for 3-y-o only is sure to attract another competitive field, with £33,501 on offer to the winner this year.
Queen Alexandra Stakes 2021
Race 7, Saturday, June 19th, 6:10pm
A stamina sapping 2m5f 143 yard marathon to round off the week at Royal Ascot 2021, with a history dating back to 1864 and the demands of this race meaning that very few horses truly stay the extreme trip. Unsurprisingly the jumping yards have done especially well in this race over the years, with Alan King’s versatile stayer Who Days Wins landing the prize in 2020 under an inspired ride from Tom Marquand.
Royal Ascot 2021 Day 5 Races
There is something for everyone on the Saturday at Royal Ascot 2021, with seven compelling races and the betting action sure to be fierce (though with the on-course crowd limited to 4000 most of the action will be online rather than on-course betting ring).
The day begins with the 7f Chesham Stakes for juveniles, while the 6f Diamond Jubilee Stakes at 4.20pm provides a terrific opening for older sprinters to win some fantastic prize money at the top level.
The concluding 2m5f Queen Alexandra is one of the longest flat races in the calendar, and often provides an opening for jumps trainers to bring one of their useful hurdlers to compete at the best flat meeting in the world (with their proven stamina counting for plenty).
