A 150-1 winner of the Coventry Stakes might have been the biggest shock in betting terms in the history of Royal Ascot but there was no surprise about the star of the show, Frankie Dettori.

Had you backed the jockey’s winners in an accumulator it would also have been 150-1, but a somewhat more predictable 150-1 shot than Nando Parrado’s in the third race.

The semi-joke before the meeting began was that Frankie Dettori, the big-occasion jockey, might not be up for a Royal Ascot run behind closed doors with a smaller audience than you might expect at a village football match rather than 80,000 punters baying his name.

But on the final day of the strangest of Royal Ascots, racing’s greatest showman, as he so often has, turned it into Dettori day, proving he does not just run on applause by winning the Coronation Stakes on the Irish filly Alpine Star, the St James’s Palace on Palace Pier and, initiating it all, the Queen Mary on Campanelle.

At the end of five days his six winners at the meeting saw him crowned leading rider for the seventh time and he now sits equal with the late Pat Eddery on 73 Royal winners. Even if he rides for another 10 years – racing will hope he does – he will struggle to beat Lester Piggott’s 116.

Dettori, 49, is always worth a few pounds on the back of a winner, so after Campanelle’s victory he went out full of confidence on Jessica Harrington’s Alpine Star, stuck to the inside throughout, got the splits when he needed them and galloped all the way to the line to beat the US runner Sharing four and a half lengths.

“I’ve been riding Ascot for 30 years but, for one reason or another, I’ve never won the Coronation before,” said an ebullient Dettori after completing the full set of Ascot’s Group Ones.

“Jessie offered me the ride 10 days ago when it became clear her jockey couldn’t come over, she had a good draw, she hit a flat spot, I got a good split up the rail, she’s a wonderful filly who won it in good style. She’s up there with the best around.

“Now I can say I’ve won every Group One at Ascot. It’s a big tick of my boxes. I can now say I’ve conquered Ascot completely.”    

Dettori was equally effective taking the outside route on Palace Pier in the St James’s Palace. That is the difference between the good and the brilliant – knowing when and when not to go down the inside.

Billed as a rematch between the 2,000 Guineas second and third, Wichita and Pinatubo, last year’s champion two-year-old managed to reverse that form, just. But neither horse could cope with Palace Pier staying on down the outside to win by a cosy length.

“What a day,” said Dettori. “We always thought a lot of him but he got a bit sleepy at home and we had our heads scratching. John (Gosden) thought ‘let’s start him in a handicap at Newcastle’ to see if it woke him up and it did. We threw him in the deep end today.”

US raider Campanelle’s victory in the Queen Mary Stakes gave the meeting an international, other than Hibernian, flavour. Less blast and go than some of Wesley Ward’s other 10 winners, the filly was virtually last early on after falling asleep in the stalls.

But Dettori, Ward’s old mucker, was content to sit and watch on as his rivals went hard. Two out he found himself travelling well before going on to win by three quarters of a length.

“Wesley’s still mad at me not having ridden Golden Pal (second) in the Norfolk,” joked Dettori afterwards. “He’s a good friend of mine but he doesn’t forgive things. I go out to Florida some Januarys to see him and he starts hassling me about which two-year-olds I’ll ride at Ascot! I’m glad – this will give him an incentive to come back next year.”

The bookies were thrown a lifeline, and a Dettori four-timer thwarted, by Kevin Stott who broke his Ascot and Group One duck on Hello Youmzain in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

Kevin Ryan’s four-year-old got two lengths on his rivals out of the gates and, though headed inside the last furlong by Sceptical and Dettori, the colt battled back to pass Sceptical and withstand the late thrust of Dream of Dreams on the line.

“He dug very deep when I needed it,” said Stott, who lost the ride last year. “I’m blessed to be put back on him, I can’t describe how grateful I am for that.”

Within an hour the Scandinavian-born Stott, 25, rode his second winner after Hey Jonesy hung on by a nose to land the Wokingham. Maybe not as famous as Dettori yet but, nevertheless, his reputation as a jockey now assured.

Even if there had been 80,000 people at Ascot silence might have greeted Nando Parrado after Clive Cox’s colt won, on the back of a debut fifth, the Coventry Stakes at 150-1, the longest priced winner in Ascot history.

“Full credit to the little horse,” said jockey Adam Kirby. “He hung in there, we got going early and he had to be brave. We liked him before Newmarket but he didn’t handle to track, I needed a parachute to get down the hill. I’m not saying it isn’t a surprise, it is, but that’s because we’ve brought a lot of live bullets to the Coventry before and never won it.”

Cox said: “We were a bit deflated after Newmarket. We were expecting a bit more. But he came home worked well and when it rained I rang his owner and said we need to be in there. He’s a lovely horse, a lovely looker, the price is a surprise but not the result.”

The end

What a week. Stradivarius, Frankie Dettori, Battaash, Hayley Turner, Jim Crowley, Hollie Doyle, Kevin Stott... and a 150/1 winner! Our racing correspondent Marcus Armytage has written a summary piece that I highly recommend you read. I shall leave the final word to him. Here's a snippet from his piece:

The racing has had a bit of everything, as you would have expected from five days of Royal Ascot: brilliant winners mixed in with the lucky, easy for some, hard fought for others, horses reaching the climax of their racing careers, some promising to excite even more in the future, horses bought for a song succeeding where the millionaires failed, a mix of talent, equine and human, male and female, breaking through to the big time.

The six extra races have proved a hit and one suspects there will be demand for them to be kept though Ascot is rigidly traditional and my last tip of this meeting is on it reverting to 30 races over five days next year.

03:52 PM

4.40pm result

  1. Who Dares Wins Evens

  2. The Grand Visir 11/4

  3. Mukha Magic 40/1

It will be a happy jockey household tonight. Hollie Doyle triumphed in the last yesterday and now her boyfriend Tom Marquand has done the same today. A Royal Ascot winner apiece.

03:50 PM

Who Dares Wins wins!

Off they go for the longest flat race under rules in Britain and there are nine runners in it. Adrrastos is the leader for the first mile or so, from Nate The Great and Mukha Magic. Slow and steady does it, with little change in the order as they reach halfway. Who Dares Wins - the hot favourite - is poised in fourth. They turn for home and Adrrastos still leads from Mukha Magic. But here comes Who Dares Wins. He gets his nose in front at the one-furlong pole and he holds on under pressure from The Grand Visir late on.

03:39 PM

Top jockey

If Jim Crowley wins this, he will be crowned leading jockey at this year's Royal Ascot. If he does not, Frankie Dettori will take top spot. Crowley rides Fun Mac. Dettori is not involved.

03:29 PM

The last race

So this is it. The final race of a bumper Royal Ascot haul of 36 races. And it's the longest of them all. This one is a marathon, not a sprint.

Race 8 preview - 4.40pm

4.40 Queen Alexandra Stakes (2m 6f, Conditions, 4yo+) 

A repeat of THE GRAND VISIR’s 2019 Ascot Stakes win puts him firmly in the mix in what looks a very winnable renewal of the Queen Alexandra Stakes. Who Dares Wins has stamina assured at the trip, and continue a good week for Alan King’s Royal Ascot runners. In a race lacking in depth, Imphal can also stay this distance well, and might just outrun his price for father/son combination Gary  and  Ryan Moore.

Alright Kev!

Just over half an hour ago, Kevin Stott had never ridden a Royal Ascot winner... now he's won two in two races! 

03:14 PM

Hey Jonesy wins!

Off they go for the final sprint of this meeting and there are 22 of them in it. The field splits almost perfectly in half from the outset. Air Raid has the lead on the stands side, with Hey Jonesy on the far side. And Hey Jonesy is travelling well. Can he hold on? Oof. It's between him and the fast-finishing Summerghand. Blimey, that's close. A photo finish is required. And it is sooooo close. The verdict is... Hey Jonesy wins!

4.10 Wokingham Stakes Handicap (6f, 3yo+) 

JACK’S POINT can continue an excellent Royal Ascot for trainer William Muir, and a repeat effort of his Buckingham Palace Handicap second placing can see him go very close off the same mark. Spanish City can continue an excellent week for trainer Roger Varian and looks to hold lively each-way claims on his first run of the year. Arecibo has some very solid course form, and can run into a place under Danny Tudhope.

They're off. Sands Of Mali is ploughing a lone furrow on the far side and takes an early lead on all on his own. The rest of the field are up against the stands, with Hello Youmzain heading that pack. Sceptical hits the front at the furlong pole. He has his nose in front but can he hold off Hello Youmzain and the fast-finishing Dream Of Dreams? No he can't. Hello Youmzain takes it by a whisker from Dream Of Dreams.

02:29 PM

Rags to riches

What an amazing story it would be if Sceptical wins this. Given a second chance of being a racehorse after he was sold for just £2,800 as an unraced three-year-old, he is now Ireland's great sprint hope.

Marlborough's horse-by-horse guide

1. Dream Of Dreams: Second in this race last year, and gelded over the winter. Respected to a degree, but this is a big ask on his seasonal reappearance.

2. Hello Youmzain: Consistent colt, good winner of the Group One Haydock Sprint Cup last year. Firmly in the mix on the pick of his form.

3. Khaadem: Has so far come up short in three tries at Group One level. Entitled to be better this year, but yet to prove his effectiveness at the track.

4. Sands Of Mali: Very good three-year-old who never got his season going last year. Has some excellent course form from 2018; bit to prove on his first start this year.

5. Sceptical: Made giant strides on his last four starts, most recently winning a Listed race at Naas. This is another test altogether; he could come up short back at six furlongs.

6. Shine So Bright: Needs the ground to dry out further, but is a tough, likeable colt. Time may well prove he is an out-and-out seven-furlong horse; each-way claims nonetheless.

7. Speak In Colours: Will appreciate the softish conditions, and not without hope back at a stiff six furlongs. Looks an each-way chance; eye-catching jockey booking in William Buick.

8. The Tin Man: Very good horse on his day, but has been a little hit-and-miss in recent seasons. Can be a big threat if able to show his best on his first run of the year.

9. Breathtaking Look: Good run to finish second in the Abernant Stakes at Newmarket. Unexposed over six furlongs, and rates a lively outsider here.

10. One Master: Shown some excellent form at this course, including a second to Donjuan Triumphant on Champions Day last October. Massive chance with the soft ground a plus.

02:13 PM

Race 6 preview - 3.35pm

3.35 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (6f, Group One, 4yo+) 

ONE MASTER is taken to build on her impressive course form, and can be finishing strong and late under the in-form James Doyle, with any further softening of the ground a big plus. Breathtaking Look has done little wrong at six furlongs, and can put her proven stamina at this trip to good use; she looks a very good each-way chance. Last year’s Diamond Jubilee Stakes runner-up Dream Of Dreams can improve for a gelding operation, and looks a very good chance of making the frame.

Marcus Armytage's tip: Shine So Bright

02:09 PM

Dettori to the top

He started the day a 16/1 shot to be leading jockey... and now Frankie Dettori sits top of the pile. With three victories this afternoon, his six winners put him on the same number as Jim Crowley, but a better place record means he is the current number one. And there are still three races to come.

02:05 PM

3pm result

  1. Palace Pier 4/1

  2. Pinatubo 11/8

  3. Wichita 9/4

02:03 PM

Palace Pier wins!

Here they go. Wichita takes the lead from the gun, tracked by Royal Dornoch and Threat. Pinatubo sits last of the seven runners. Into the home straight Pinatubo starts to work his way through horses and he moves to the front at the final furlong marker. He still hasn't shaken off Palace Pier though and Frankie Dettori onboard gets his nose in front to upset the two market leaders.

01:59 PM

The big question

Is Pinatubo the horse he was touted to be before his 2,000 Guineas defeat (when Wichita also finished in front of him in second)? The odds suggest punters have retained their faith.

01:52 PM

St James's Palace odds

  • Pinatubo 11/8

  • Wichita 9/4

  • Palace Pier 4/1

  • Positive 14/1

  • Threat 18/1

  • Arizona 33/1

  • Royal Dornoch 50/1

Race 5 preview - 3pm

3.00 St James’s Palace Stakes (1m, Group One, 3yo colts) 

Even a slightly slower pace in this race can see champion two-year-old PINATUBO return to winning ways, and prove that he can be a fixture in the top races as a three-year- old. Wichita is very solid, but likely needs the ground to dry out further if he is to confirm the Guineas form with the selection, whilst Threat can run a massive race provided he can settle on his first try at a mile.

Marcus Armytage's tip: Palace Pier

01:40 PM

More on that 150/1 winner

Have a read of our separate story on Nando Parrado's win. Here's a snippet:

Nando Parrado at 150-1 left punters shell-shocked in the Coventry Stakes as he ran out the biggest-priced winner in modern times at Royal Ascot.

The Clive Cox-trained youngster was only fifth on his racecourse debut at Newmarket earlier this month, but that did not stop connections from trying the son of Kodiac in the Group Two heat over six furlongs.

Nando Parrado was always prominent before making his bid for honours under Adam Kirby. Qaader was the only horse to put in a real challenge, but Nando Parrado kept up the gallop to cross the line one length to the good. Saeiqa was a further length and a quarter away in third place.

01:38 PM

Every Group One

"I've conquered Royal Ascot," says a smiling Dettori. "Finally. This was missing. Royal Ascot means a lot to me. I've been riding here 30 years and for some reason never got on the right horse [to win the Coronation Stakes]."

01:32 PM

Full house

Another win for Frankie Dettori, which means he's now claimed every Group One at Royal Ascot during his career. A complete set.

01:30 PM

2.25pm result

  1. Alpine Star 9/2

  2. Sharing 16/5

  3. Quadrilateral 2/1

Alpine Star wins!

And they're off for the first Group One of the day. Run Wild claims the early lead from Cloak Of Spirits as the field of seven set on their way. No change in the front two until they enter the home straight, which is when Quadrilateral makes a move. Cloak Of Spirits is still there fighting it out with Quadrilateral, but Alpine Star sneaks up on the inside and tears them apart in the final furlong.

She will greatly benefit from a strong pace to aim at, which is possible with the likes of Run Wild and Cloak Of Spirits in the line-up. US raider Sharing is respected on her Breeders’ Cup winning form as a two-year-old, and So Wonderful can run well without necessarily winning.

LAUDED took off on his only start in a six-furlong novice at Haydock, coping well with the good to soft ground to win by 4½ lengths. Al Shaqab Racing have come into part-ownership of Lauded, and he can reward them with a big run here. Admiral Nelson looked a very smart prospect in winning his first start, and should relish another furlong. John Gosden produced Calyx to win this in 2018, and brings forward another son of Kingman in Existent, who has a good chance.

PELEKAI looked to have plenty left under the bonnet when winning from the front on debut at Newcastle, and looks a live chance for last year’s winning trainer Mark Johnston. Campanelle demands a lot of respect for trainer Wesley Ward, who has won this race three times in the past 11 runnings. More Beautiful smacked of a Group performer when bolting up on debut at Naas, and a repeat of that should see her run very well.

Luck of the draw

Yet more joy for the horses drawn in the high numbers with the first four home all coming from double-figure stalls. If you're looking at having a flutter today on a race run on the straight course, it's worth scouring your racecard to see what stall the horse is drawn in.

Chiefofchiefs wins!

Try as they might, they cannot get Swindler into the stalls and they are forced to let the 19 other runners go without him. Vintage Brut sears into an early lead as they split into two groups - one in the centre and one on the stands rail. The groups merge around halfway as Nahaarr takes the lead. He heads for home with two furlongs remaining. Chiefofchiefs looks to be the one to challenge, and he gets up inside the the final furlong to win by a length.

11:37 AM

Messing around

There are 20 of them for this one and Swindler is still messing around at the start. It's going to be a struggle to get him into the stalls I suspect.

11:32 AM

The slow route

Swindler refused to travel down to the start under his jockey Andrea Atzeni... so instead he's been led all the way to the stalls by his poor stable lass who has jogged the entire way with the horse in tow!

The Wokingham looks to have been the target for SWINDLER for quite some time now and, having missed the main race narrowly, he can gain consolation in the consolation race. Blue Mist looks very interesting dropped to six furlongs, and has crucial course form. Louie De Palma also has course form, and can run a big race on seasonal reappearance. Chiefofchiefs is another interesting contender dropped to six furlongs, and can outrun his likely big price.

Here's the full running order

10:33 AM

The end is nigh

Hello and welcome to this final day of what has been a memorable Royal Ascot. Notably, of course, for the unique circumstances it has taken place in with no crowd, face masks, social distancing and all the rest of it. But also for the some of the action we have seen on the track: Battaash, Stradivarius and wins for Hayley Turner and Hollie Doyle.

And today could be another cracker. With an extra race lumped onto the card, there are EIGHT races today, including three back-to-back Group Ones in the middle.

Let's scratch that going itch early on and bring you the latest from Ascot, where thankfully there has been no rain overnight and things have dried out from the deluge a couple of days ago:

The weather is set fair for the day, which features the likes of Pinatubo - looking to retain his status as the 'Next Great Thing' after his 2,000 Guineas defeat - and the wonderful story of Sceptical. He's been tipped by our racing correspondent Marcus Armytage and here's a snippet from his piece:

A victory for Sceptical, the Godolphin throw-out who cost his current connections £2,800 as an unraced three-year-old less than a year ago, in Saturday's Diamond Jubilee Stakes would be an extraordinary end to an extraordinary Royal Ascot.

Rags to riches remains one of sport, indeed, life’s most enduring stories but the Irish trained gelding’s rise up the sprinting ranks from Dundalk maiden on the all-weather last autumn, through some wide-margin handicap wins, to winning a listed race by three lengths at Naas on Irish racing’s return last week has charmed the racing public on both sides of the Irish Sea.

That race takes place at 3.35pm and is the final Group One of the week. The first race goes off at 12.40pm so ready yourself for that.
