After a big win yesterday, our tipster is confident of more joy in two Group One races today

After the excitement of Ladies Day at Royal Ascot, day four will hope to have as thrilling a race as the Gold Cup on Thursday.

Big Orange held off the charge from favourite Order of St George on the line to the delight of many punters.

Our tipster Martin Girdwood of Girdys Gee Gees tipped Big Orange as an each way bet, so he surely wakes up this morning a happy man.

From the five Group One races so far, Martin has tipped the winner in three, and with two more today, he will hope to add to his collection.

In the Commonwealth Cup at 3.40pm, Martin has tipped Blue Point, while in the Coronation Stakes at 4.20pm, he has gone for Winter to convert their status as the favourite.

With the final day of the meet tomorrow, punters will be hoping to recoup any losses so far.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Martin’s tips for the final day of Royal Ascot.
