Royal Ascot draws to a close on Saturday. The final Group I race of the meeting is the main event for older sprinters: the Diamond Jubilee (GI – ENG).
The race drew a field of fifteen, with a mix of European, American, and Australian runners. The American raider is Undrafted, a solid fourth in the July Cup (GI – ENG) last year at Newmarket. Caspar Netscher, a European who shipped to Canada to take the Nearctic (GI – CAN) at Woodbine, also takes a shot here. The one to beat is one of the Aussies: Brazen Beau, who has racked up a pair of Australian GI wins at the same distance as the Diamond Jubilee, but has never shipped overseas before.
Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, and see where I landed in the Diamond Jubilee!
