1pt win Elegant Man @16/1, 15:05 Royal Ascot, Saturday

1m4f (1m3f211y) Hardwicke Stakes (Group 2) (Class 1) (4yo+)

Not the deepest renewal and Continuous might need this run to be at his best, so it’s opened up. I don’t think much of Desert Hero or Middle Earth and this race is crying out for something to prove a class above. That horse could be ELEGANT MAN who was tried in a Group One on yielding ground at Curragh but has an out and out American pedigree which usually demands fast ground, which he gets. His all weather form was very good, placing second to multiple Group One winner Rebel’s Romance, and he’s the only other horse along with the favourite who’s clocked an RPR of 130+. If fast ground is what he needs then he could make a mockery of 16/1 quotes.
