We've taken a look through various horse racing media publications to bring you which horses the newspaper experts are tipping on day five of Royal Ascot.

Rob Wright (The Times)
2.30 Pinatubo (7/2 Totesport)
3.05 Space Blues (11/4 Coral)
3.40 Masar (7/2 Totesport)
4.20 Emblazoned (16/1 Coral)
5.00 Stone Of Destiny (NAP) (22/1 Totesport)
5.35 Younevercall (10/1 Totesport)

Tom Segal (Pricewise)
2.30 Highland Chief (12/1 Coral)
3.05 Momkin (8/1 Totesport)
3.40 Defoe (11/4 Totesport)

Matt Chapman (ITV Races)
2.30 Lope Y Fernandez (6/4 Totesport)
3.05 Happy Power (8/1 Totesport)
3.40 NR
4.20 City Light (NAP) (9/1 Coral)
5.00 Cape Byron (7/1 Totesport)
5.35 Pallasator (10/1 Coral)

Hugh Taylor (AtTheRaces)
2.30 Dramatic Sands (22/1 Totesport)
5.00 Stone Of Destiny (22/1 Totesport)
5.00 Spring Loaded (16/1 Coral)

Steve Mullen (The Sun)
2.30 Pinatubo (7/2 Totesport)
3.05 Space Blues (NAP) (11/4 Coral)
3.40 NR
4.20 Blue Point (4/1 Totesport)
5.00 Vanbrugh (22/1 Coral)
5.35 Corelli (7/1 Totesport)

Templegate (The Sun)
2.30 Go loopy about LOPE Y FERNANDEZ (6/4 Totesport) in the Chesham Stakes. Aidan O’Brien looks to have this juveniles’ prize stitched up with his four runners. Lope Y Fernandez looks best of the quartet after his impressive Curragh debut. It was an exceedingly good performance to cruise clear of stablemate Kipling in the manner of a top prospect.

3.05 URBAN ICON (9/1 Coral) looks the cream of the Jersey crop. He only went down by a neck to Space Blues in the Surrey Stakes at Epsom on Oaks day. The winner used his superior turn of foot to notch what was a cosy victory but today’s race will be a totally different test.

3.40 NR

4.20 The Ballydoyle boss won the St James’s Palace Stakes with a horse dropping in distance and I reckon he’ll repeat the trick with LE BRIVIDO (12/1 Totesport). He was a fine fifth in the Queen Anne Over a mile on Tuesday when the petrol ran out in the closing stages. That came after he was unlucky in the Lockinge – again over a mile – at Newbury.

5.00 SUMMERGHAND (20/1 Coral) won five times last season and he’s kicked off this term in great form. Having run Flavius Titus to a neck at Newmarket’s Craven Meeting he returned to that track to again finish second behind On The Warpath. His come-from-the-rear hold-up tactics aren’t suited to Newmarket and he should find this race playing to his strengths with plenty of pace across the track.

5.35 It's been a fabulous week for Frankie and I’m expecting to finish with a flourish on CORELLI (7/1 Totesport) in the Queen Alexandra Stakes. John Gosden’s hope was only seen three times last and he won two of them. His defeat came when third in the Lingfield Derby Trial and he made a decent reappearance when runner-up behind useful Baghdad in a decent Newmarket handicap on 1000 Guineas day.

Chris Cook (The Guardian)
2.30 Year Of The Tiger (14/1 Coral)
3.05 So Perfect (NAP) (8/1 Totesport)
3.40 Defoe (3/1 Totesport)
4.20 The Tin Man (11/1 Coral)
5.00 Spring Loaded (16/1 Coral)
5.35 Younevercall (10/1 Totesport)

Captain Heath's Trio (The Daily Mail)
2.30 Sun Power (33/1 Coral)
3.05 Momkin (8/1 Totesport)
5.00 Tis Marvellous (22/1 Coral)

Sam Turner (The Daily Mail)
2.30 Mohican Heights (16/1 Totesport)
3.05 Space Blues (11/4 Coral)
3.40 Mirage Dancer (11/2 Totesport)
4.20 City Light (9/1 Totesport)
5.00 Cape Byron (7/1 Totesport)
5.35 Cleonte (NAP) (6/1 Coral)

Steve Mullen (The Sun)
2.30 Pinatubo (7/2 Totesport)
3.05 Space Blues (NAP) (11/4 Coral)
3.40 NR
4.20 Blue Point (4/1 Totesport)
5.00 Vanbrugh (22/1 Coral)
