With one last shot at glory, Martin is hoping for one final Group One winner

The final day of Royal Ascot sees the final shots at glory for punters this week.

After a tremendous week of racing, there are just six races remaining, one of which is the final Group One of the meet.

As ever this week, Martin Girdwood of Girdys Gee Gees has picked who he thinks will go well in the Group One race.

With all eyes on the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at 4.20pm, Martin has plumped for The Tin Man.

It looks set to be a thrilling end to what has been an exciting week of racing at another fabulous Royal Ascot.

Martin has tipped some fantastic winners this week and will hope to continue his form on the final day.

The bookmakers, though, will be wishing they can avoid a final day bashing with some interesting race fields.

And as this is the final day of the meet, we thank you for taking the time to view Martin’s tips for Royal Ascot.
