Royal Ascot Day 2 Tips:


Royal Ascot is underway and we’re looking forward to Day 2 of the meeting. 

Many punters are looking beyond the favourites and instead hunting down some winners at a big price with online bookmakers.

In this article, we take a look through the Day 2 racecard at Royal Ascot and identify a number of selections which should be able to go well at a nice price. 

15:40 - Duke Of Cambridge Stakes

Not a strong renewal of this Group 2 contest and very few bring as compelling claims to the table as Prosperous Voyage, the only one of these who can boast a Group 1 win on her CV.

Last year’s Falmouth Stakes heroine is at her best when the ground is rattling and she proved the point by coming good on her favoured terrain in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom earlier this month.

A three-quarter length winning margin doesn’t do her complete justice because she had to overcome a tardy start and a steady gallop that day.

The daughter of Zoffany should be at fever pitch now and conditions look bang on for a filly who has a bit in hand of her rivals on the figures.

Frankie Dettori, on board at Epsom, won this race a couple of years ago and he’s got a great chance of striking again on a filly that really should be favourite ahead of Jumbly, who is rated 7lb inferior.

16:20 - Prince Of Wales’s Stakes

A small field but a belter of a renewal with five of the six runners rated 120+.

Tactics are likely to play a part but outsider Classic Causeway might just take them along early, ensuring one of the big guns doesn’t get a cheap lead.

Fast ground probably isn’t ideal for a few of these but My Prospero was only beaten a neck in last year’s St James’s Palace stakes on quick ground so he should be fine, and the William Haggas team are convinced that this hugely talented four-year-old is a much better horse this time around.

His staying-on effort having got outpaced in the Lockinge Stakes strongly suggested that he would be a different proposition over this longer trip, especially as he’ll strip much fitter now.

My Prospero got within half a length of Bay Bridge and Adayar in last year’s Champion Stakes and there is a strong suspicion that this Iffraaj colt can improve past those rivals now that he’s grown into that big frame.

17:00 - Royal Hunt Cup

One of the toughest races of entire season, let alone this meeting, to solve and the draw may well play its part.

However, horses drawn right across the track have won this race in the last decade, and any draw bias won’t reveal itself till the day itself - so from this range it is best to take the draw out of the equation altogether.

Perotto has been drawn on the stands’ side in stall 30, he hasn’t got his head in front since storming home from off the pace to win the 2021 Britannia Stakes over this course and distance.

He attracted support with horse racing betting sites on debut for the Roger Varian team at this track last month and there were clear signs of encouragement in that run, on ground that would have been much slower than ideal.

Well treated now off a 3lb lower mark than for that last success, it’s likely that his new team would have had this race in mind for him from some way out and they will be buoyed by the weather going into the meeting because this horse relishes quick ground. 

If he’s back to anything like his best, his turn of foot could prove deadly under these ideal conditions.

18:10 - Windsor Castle Stakes

Any number of lightly-raced two-year-olds with great potential on show here and that makes for a particularly dangerous interesting heat based on the betting apps odds.

Johannes Brahms looked the part on debut and has to be feared for the Coolmore team but that Naas form is nothing special and there are plenty with equally compelling claims.

The one that makes most appeal is Maximum Impact who comes here unbeaten in two starts and the way he powered clear late on when scoring over this course and distance under a penalty last time strongly pointed to him being a Pattern-class colt. 

It would have been no surprise had connections decided to step him up to six furlongs on the back of that two-and-a-quarter length beating of a previous winner, but the Coventry Stakes normally takes a fair bit more winning than this, so that has likely persuaded Alice Haynes and the Amo Racing team to stick with this trip.

Slightly quicker ground asks a new question but if Maximum Impact finished his race as strongly as he did here in May then he’s bound to play a part in the finish.

Amo Racing have a stack of good two-year-old’s this season and Maximum Impact, who holds a Group 1 Phoenix Stakes entry, looks right up there with the best of them.
