The 2020 King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes takes place on Saturday 25 July at Ascot Racecourse. This prestigious Group 1 race takes place over 12-furlongs but, despite the moaning about prize money in this difficult time for horse racing, only four runners are set to line-up to try and win a first prize of £226,840.
The quartet of runners includes three from the stable of Aidan O’Brien, who last year won the English Derby, Irish Derby, and Juddmonte International between them. But it’s difficult to see any of them troubling Enable, with John Gosden’s star filly looking to add to her victories in the race in 2017 and 2019.
Sovereign was a shock winner of the 2019 Irish Derby at 33/1 and he made little impression on his first race since when third in a Group 3 over 14-furlongs. But he is entitled to have improved for that run and should be able to adopt the front-running tactics he used to win the Irish Derby in this small field. He still probably won’t win, but should at least make the race a true test.
Antony Van Dyck is another Derby winner that has since proved disappointing. He’s failed to trouble the judge since winning at Epsom last June and was only fifth on his last start in a Group 2 at Royal Ascot.
It’s no surprise to see Ryan Moore take the ride on Japan, who looks to be Aidan O’Brien’s best chance of success. At his best in winning a Group 1 at York last season, he finished around 2¼ lengths behind Enable in the 2019 Arc but was only a head behind Enable in this season’s Eclipse, when they were second and third.
Enable must be the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes tip, as she should win even if running to form in the Eclipse. But that was also her first start of the season and she’s entitled to improve more than Japan for that run, as he had already run at Royal Ascot. Enable’s form at Ascot is also superior to that of Japan and she’s fancied to win this race for the third time.
