Royal Ascot Highlights
The King Stand (5 furlong) – Group 1
The King Stand is our first chance to witness all the top sprinters in the world go flat out from the drop of the flag to the finishing line. The race is open to 3 years old and up. So, this is a chance for us to see if the good 2-year-old sprinters of last season have trained on and how they will fare against the big boys of sprinting.
The Prince Of Wales (1 mile) – Group 1
The Prince of Wales over 1 mile where you might find last season Derby winner take his chance along with placed horses in that race. They will have to be on top of their game to cope with some high class and experience rivals. Last year we saw Poets Word turn over in some people’s eyes the banker of the week in Cracksman.
Will we see another shock this year?
The Queen Mary (5 furlongs) Group 1
The Queen Mary Stakes is a Group Two race for two-year-old fillies and is run over five furlongs. Because it is open only to two-year-olds, the Queen Mary Stakes is a very difficult race to find the winner of, some runners could be making their racecourse debuts and the others will be lightly raced. However, it is always wise to pay attention to American trainer Wesley Ward who always aims his top sprinters for this meeting, with winners such as Lady Aurelia and Acapulco winning in recent years. It is an exciting race from the perspective that it gives fans a first glimpse of the highly regarded fillies from the leading stables.
The Gold Cup – (2 miles 4 furlongs) – Group 1
The Ascot Gold Cup is the ultimate test for any staying horse on the flat. You might have a top class horse over 1 mile 6 furlongs but can he handle the step up to 2 miles 4 furlongs. You need a horse with talent, class, staying power, but most import they need to have bottle and the will to win. Your horse wins the Gold Cup, you will forever be known as…The Gold Cup winner.
The Albany Stakes – (6 furlongs) – Group 3
We kick off the day with the Albany Stakes over 6 furlongs. First introduced to Royal Ascot in 2002, the Albany Stakes is a race for two-year-old fillies and provides useful pointers to some of the leading two-year-old fillies for the remainder of the season and into the following season. There have been big price winners in the betting in recent years so my advice is don’t let the SP put you off.
