Ascot races.

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

Rob Wright (The Times)

3.05 Jalmoud (6/1 Coral)
3.40 Sea Of Class (7/2 Totesport)
4.20 I Can Fly (9/2 Totesport)
5.00 Clon Coulis (NAP) (20/1 Coral)
5.35 Summer Sands (14/1 Totesport)

Tom Segal (Pricewise)
2.30 Lambeth Walk (14/1 Coral)
3.05 Norway (4/1 Totesport)
3.40 Waldgeist (5/1 Coral)

Sam Turner (The Daily Mail)
2.30 Final Song (5/1 Totesport)
3.05 Norway (4/1 Totesport)
3.40 Magical (9/2 Coral)
4.20 I Can Fly (9/2 Totesport)
5.00 Raising Sand (NAP) (8/1 Coral)
5.35 Southern Hills (8/1 Totesport)

Templegate (The Sun)
2.30 Few juveniles have impressed me on their debut as much as FINAL SONG (5/1 Totesport) did when storming home at Ascot last month. The Godolphin filly showed plenty of pace in the early stages. When she was asked to put the race to bed the answer was devastating. She had five lengths to spare at the line and third-placed Star Alexander had no trouble scoring on her next start.

3.05 NORWAY (4/1 Totesport) looks ready to flower in the Queen’s Vase. Aidan O’Brien clearly thought this brother of Derby hero Ruler Of The World always had plenty of stamina as he ran him over 1m2f as a two-year-old last season. That confidence was well placed as he won the Zetland Stakes at Newmarket when Nate The Great was back in third. It prompted O’Brien to send him to Saint-Cloud for a Group 1 but it was probably one run too many in a short space of time as he pulled too hard and didn’t have anything left for the finish.

3.40 ZABEEL PRINCE (12/1 Totesport) looks a good bet to cause a bit of a shock in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes. This is a quality Group 1 but most of those towards the front of the betting have shown their best form over 1m4f. With a strong pace unlikely it could set things up for Roger Varian’s hope. He might be a six-year-old but he hasn’t had much racing. In fact, he’s only had ten races – winning six of them – and he’s developed into a smart horse.

4.20 VERACIOUS (10/1 Coral) should come good in the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes. I’ve been keeping tracks on Sir Michael Stoute’s filly ever since she made her comeback last season with a third behind top-class Alpha Centauri in the Coronation Stakes at this meeting.

5.00 In-form trainer Ralph Beckett looks to have a right old Swagger in the Royal Hunt Cup. He’s been banging in the winners in recent weeks and yesterday’s rain has come in time for his big-race hope MITCHUM SWAGGER (40/1 Totesport). This smart seven-year-old has to have it soft and these big-field handicaps suit him well. He was third in this race three years ago from a handicap mark 3lbs higher.

5.35 Have a few bob on DYLAN DE VEGA (12/1 Coral) in the Windsor Castle Stakes. He was only worried out of it close home when runner-up behind Temple Of Heaven when the pair made their debuts at Nottingham in April. That’s strong form and I thought Richard Fahey’s youngster would come on a fair bit for the experience.

Chris Cook (The Guardian)
2.30 Ickworth (9/1 Coral)
3.05 Norway (4/1 Totesport)
3.40 Crystal Ocean (10/1 Coral)
4.20 I Can Fly (NAP) (9/2 Totesport)
5.00 King’s Field (22/1 Coral)
5.35 Iffraaz (16/1 Totesport)

Captain Heath's Trio (The Daily Mail)
3.05 Norway (4/1 Totesport)
3.40 Magical (9/2 Coral)
5.35 Summer Sands (14/1 Totesport)

The Scout (Daily Express)
2.30 Final Song (5/1 Totesport)
3.05 Norway (4/1 Totesport)
3.40 Magical (9/2 Coral)
4.20 Veracious (10/1 Coral)
5.00 New Graduate (13/2 Coral)
5.35 Summer Sands (14/1 Totesport)
