The 2020 Bengough Stakes takes place on Saturday 3 October. It is a Group 3 race run over 6-furlongs and it of part of Ascot’s Autumn Racing Weekend. This year’s edition has attracted 10-runners but there looks to be a standout performer in the line-up, while there are doubts about his rivals.
Tinto is a course and distance winner off a mark of 96 and has won off 100 since. But he’s been out of form lately and this is a step-up in class. Brad The Brief is going the right way, but he also steps up in class and will probably find one or two to good.
Raucous is a genuine performer that hasn’t been out of the first four in his last 8 runs, but he’s held on the form of his two performances over course and distance last year. Kurios take a drop-in-class but she’s reserved her best for 5-furlongs.
Breathtaking Look is another that takes a drop-in-class but, while she’s won a Group 3 over 6-furlongs on soft ground, that was a weaker race than this. She also has a penalty to carry. Snazzy Jazzy is another Group 3 winner with plenty of soft ground to his name, though he’s not been at his best this season, and first-time cheekpieces will need to spark him back to his best.
Two other horses that connections will be hoping can return to their best are the former Group 1 winners Brando and The Tin Man. But Brando has looked regressive in his nine runs since he last won, and he’s only ever placed twice from five previous runs at Ascot.
The Tin Man has a much better record at Ascot, where he’s won three of his 11 course and distance starts. But despite a Group 1 win on heavy ground at Haydock, the rest of his career wins have come on much better ground. He’s also looked a long way below his best this season and a line through Tabdeed suggests our tip has the beating of him.
Cape Byron is our Bengough Stakes tip 2020. He won last year’s edition of the race cosily, which was his second course and distance success, and his trainer Roger Varian remains in brilliant form. There’s a slight worry that this is his first run of the season this time but, as he’s won after an absence of over 300 days before, his obvious form chance makes him a must bet in conditions he should relish.
