Matt Chapman tips: I'm putting the faith in William Haggas – this 14-1 shot can win Saturday's big race at Royal Ascot | The SunJune 17, 2022
AND now the end is here, and so I face that final curtain…
My friend I’ll make it clear, I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.
I’ve lived an Ascot week.
I’ve travelled each and every day,
And more, much more than this…
I did it my way!

So this is it. Royal Ascot 2022 comes to an end with the feature Group 1 Platinum Jubilee Stakes over six furlongs.
And the chances are we will be saying ‘g’day’ just as we did Tuesday with Nature Strip but this time via the Chris Waller-trained stable companion Home Affairs.
That said, SACRED is interesting at a price for William Haggas and Tom Marquand. Now the filly stays up to a mile so this is a bit short for the daughter of Exceed and Excel
But I imagine she will dropped out and ridden cold for a place so I'll risk her eachway.

Day 5 gets under way with the Listed Chesham Stakes for youngsters over seven furlongs.
ALFRED MUNNINGS has been one of the bankers for Ascot ever since he hacked up at Leopardstown first time and there won't be many people taking him on here for Ryan Moore and Aidan O'Brien.
The second and third in that race have both been stuffed since. But the fourth won well so the form is probably all right.
The Group 3 Jersey Stakes is over seven furlongs.
Attheraces had a Flat preview show at the start of the season and I put up MONAADAH as my horse to follow for Saeed bin Suroor.
Since then he's hacked up at both Newcastle and Kempton at reasonable odds and now he goes here.
It's not going to be easy against the likes of Noble Truth who is rated 9lb better, but he should have no problem with the turf and I'll take the chance eachway.

In the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes over a mile and a half it’s hard to get away from HURRICANE LANE who should be gar too good for this lot for Charlie Appleby and William Buick.
The St Leger hero and Arc third is the type to do even better with age – the only worry is the ground as he's never gone on a quick surface.
That said, there is a chance of some rain Saturday. We will have to wait and see.
What a puzzle he Wokingham Handicap is over six furlongs.
FRESH really should have a cracking eachway chance for Danny Tudhope, who has had a fabulous week, and James Fanshawe.
The Victoria Cup fourth will be keeping on strongly over this trip and chased home Rohaan in the 2020 renewal.
That was off 96 and he's on 98 now so he has every chance. Would love some rain.
The penultimate race of the meeting is the Golden Gates Handicap over a mile and a quarter.
GROUNDBREAKER might run well here for Andrew Balding and Andrea Atzeni.
He never got in the race behind Ottoman Fleet at Newmarket last time when slowly away but had looked promising in a maiden at Doncaster and might have more to offer as an eachway hope.
Royal Ascot ends with the Queen Alexandra Stakes over an extended two miles and five furlongs.
If Trueshan turns up here (needs rain) then obviously he should be a good thing.
I'll back FALCON EIGHT win or eachway (depending on Trueshan) for Dermot Weld and Tom Marquand.
The former Chester Cup winner has every chance off a mark of 108 for the master of Rosewell.
