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

    Two days after hitting the winner in the St. James's Palace Stakes, SportsLine racing analyst Michelle Yu offers her picks, wagers and analysis for Thursday's card at Royal Ascot

    Thursday is the third day of the five-day Royal meeting at Ascot Racecourse. The world class card features seven races, beginning with the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at 9:30 a.m. ET and ending with the Buckingham Palace Stakes. 

    SportsLine's Michelle Yu is in Ascot covering the races, and with several large fields set to enter the starting gate on Thursday, 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 Thursday 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.

    And on Tuesday, Yu nailed Rosallion (7-2) to win the St. James's Palace Stakes.

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

    We can tell you that Yu is picking Trawlerman, an 11-2 shot, in the Gold Cup (11:25 a.m. ET). "The Dubai Gold Cup should propel him forward and while he hasn't run this distance before I think it suits him fine," Yu told SportsLine. 

    In addition Yu likes a longshot to win the Norfolk Stakes on Thursday. This horse "should be fit" 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 Thursday 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!
