Move Swiftly completed a remarkable 284/1 double for our Value Bet tipster Ben Linfoot on day two of Royal Ascot.

Having struck earlier on the card with Dashing Willoughby (advised at 14/1), this William Haggas-trained filly was an 18/1 selection who halved in price to 9/1 before winning the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes.

Danny Tudhope, riding his third winner of the week, gave the daughter of Farhh a fine ride, making stealthy headway from the rear of the field to hit the front at the furlong marker.

Frankie Dettori and Rawdaa emerged as the main threat but they were a neck adrift at the line with 7/2 favourite I Can Fly a length-and-three-quarters away in third.

Haggas said: "He is showing what a very good rider he is. He is not coming of age, as he has been a good rider for a while and is showing that now. She went off to be covered, but failed thank god. She has not been easy to train, she is tough and she goes through the pain barrier. I think she'll come on for the run, she might get further and there's a few options. She might have to have a go at a Group One now she's won a Group Two. She may go a mile and a quarter, we'll see."

Tudhope said: "It's nice to get on good horses, it makes the job a lot easier. I'm going to Chelmsford tonight and then to Ripon tomorrow. I'm back here on Friday and Saturday."

Sir Michael Stoute said of Rawdaa and Veracious, who was fourth: "Both fillies ran very well and I'm thrilled with them.

"They were beaten fair and square. I would prefer going a mile and a quarter with Rawdaa and I think that is her best trip, but we could see who is going to the Falmouth and then see."

Aidan O'Brien said of I Can Fly: "She ran very well and I'm delighted with her. I think as the year goes on she will progress and that's the way we have been training her. We were not expecting this type of ground. I'd probably say she will go for the Falmouth."
