    2024 Royal Ascot odds, horses, field: Racing insider offers best bets for Friday's races

    One day after hitting the exacta in the Gold Cup, SportsLine racing analyst Michelle Yu offers her picks, wagers and analysis for Friday's card at Royal Ascot

    Friday is the penultimate day of the five-day Royal meeting at Ascot Racecourse. The world class card features seven races, beginning with the Group 3 Albany Stakes at 9:30 a.m. ET and ending with the Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes. 

    SportsLine's Michelle Yu is in Ascot covering the races, and with several large fields set to enter the starting gate on Friday, you'll want to see what the Santa Anita-based racing reporter and analyst has to say before making any Royal Ascot picks. Join SportsLine here to see whom she's picking!

    Few people in racing are as well-connected as Yu. An on-air host and reporter who has provided racing analysis for TVG, HRTV and the Breeders' Cup, Yu has spent a lifetime in racing. Prior to her television career, she worked for trainers Steve Asmussen and Ron Moquett. She also is married to Santa Anita-based trainer Ryan Hanson.

    Yu also has tremendous handicapping chops. In a wide-open Kentucky Derby in 2021, she gave out Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first, as the winner at 12-1. In Pool 5 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager two years ago, she suggested a play on All Other 3-Year-Olds, which cashed at a whopping 18-1 when Rich Strike won the Derby.

    She enters Friday at Royal Ascot on a roll. She correctly called National Treasure to win the Pegasus World Cup, predicted Stronghold's upset win in the Santa Anita Derby, en route to a $219.50 payday, and smashed the exacta in the Apple Blossom Handicap as part of a $410 score. On the Belmont Stakes undercard, she nailed National Treasure's win in the Met Mile ($235) and had both the winner and exacta in the Woody Stephens Stakes.

    On Tuesday, Yu nailed Rosallion (7-2) to win the St. James's Palace Stakes, and on Thursday she cashed the exacta ($109) in the Gold Cup.

    For Friday's Royal Ascot card, Yu has identified her best bets. Join SportsLine here to see them!

    We can tell you that Yu is high on Simmering, a 12-1 longshot in the Albany Stakes. "Jockey Jamie Spencer has been giving some very savvy rides this week, and the price should be square," Yu told SportsLine. 

    In addition Yu likes an enormous double-digit longshot on Friday. This horse is "going to move up" on the Ascot turf and could key a nice payday. She is including this horse in her 2024 Royal Ascot best bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see her best bets before locking in any of your own!

    So what are Yu's best bets for Royal Ascot's Friday card? What longshot is a must-back? And how has she constructed her wagers? ... Join SportsLine right now to get Michelle Yu's 2024 Royal Ascot picks, all from the racing insider who has been RED-HOT all year!
