GBI Racing Ambassador and former leading jockey, Hayley Turner, gives her expert insight on Saturday's Racing

Race 1 (9:30AM ET) – Chesham Stakes
Trained by Charlie Appleby, she learnt a lot by winning on debut by four lengths from a wide draw at Kempton. I fancy her to improve again.
Race 2 (10:05AM ET) – Hardwicke Stakes (Group 2)
#3 CRYSTAL OCEAN (3/5) - Bet of the Day
A typical Sir Michael Stoute improver, he was super-impressive when winning a Group 3 last time out at Newbury. He is turning into a very nice four-year-old.
Race 3 (10:40AM ET) – Windsor Castle Stakes
#5 JAMES WATT (20/1) (Hayley's ride)
The big field with a strong pace will suit him and he is going well at home. I am hoping this will be my first Royal Ascot winner!

Race 4 (11:20AM ET) – Diamond Jubilee Stakes  (Group 1)
#2 CITY LIGHT (10/1)
This is a French raider that proved he is a good on the grass when winning a Group 3 at Longchamp last month. I fancy her to go well here at a nice each-way price.
