IT is a pity that Inns Of Court has not made it to final declaration stage for today’s Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, but Blue Point and Le Brivido are intriguing inclusions.

It is worth rolling the dice with both horses, the former stepping up in trip from the King’s Stand Stakes on Tuesday, the latter stepping down significantly in trip from the Queen Anne Stakes. The step from King’s Stand to Diamond Jubilee is not that unusual, and Blue Point has high-class form over six furlongs, but the step from Queen Anne to Diamond Jubilee is.
