Royal Ascot Tips [Day 2]

Royal Ascot may be lacking some of its trademark festivities but that didn’t detract from the excitement of the racing or punting on the opening day. Day two looks just as good, and we’ve got two strong fancies for the King George V Stakes and the Group 1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.

Check out our trends, analysis, and free tips for day two of Royal Ascot 2020.

King George V Stakes Analysis

14:25 at Ascot Racecourse on 17th June

This handicap over 1 mile and 4 furlongs has thrown up a few shock winners in the last decade, but Kipps looks a solid each-way favourite for shrewd trainer Hughie Morrison.

Kipps started by finishing a close second to Celestran and that horse has since gone on to win a handicap off a mark of 83. Kipps then broke his duck easily next time and looked tenderly handle on his reappearance at Haydock just 10 days ago.

Kipps was officially raised to a mark of 88 after than run but can still race off the same mark of 83 here. That suggests Kipps is chucked in here, especially as he’s fancied to improve even further for running over an extra two furlongs.

Prince Of Wales’s Stakes Analysis

15:00 at Ascot Racecourse on 17th June

The weather could have a say in which horse claims this Group 1 contest over 10-furlongs, with Addeybb a renowned mud-lover if the rain arrives in buckets. 

Former Royal Ascot winner Barney Roy has returned after a failed career at Stud but, while he would be a big danger at his best, the form of those two races at Meydan doesn’t suggest he’s as good as he once was. Headman is a horse going the other way, as he’s on the up after three wins last season, but his fifth in the Irish Champion Stakes when last seen suggests he will have needed to improve since.

Bangkok has finished behind several of today’s runners in previous races, and he was put in his place by a John Gosden-trained runner when last seen in the Winter Derby. Gosden saddles two in this, with Frankie Dettori on Mehdaayih. She may have improved since last season but will have needed to have done.

Gosden’s other runner is Lord North, who finished second over a mile at last year’s Royal Ascot Meeting but has improved over 10-furlongs since. He could go well after beating Elarqam just 10 days ago, but Dettori probably had the pick of the Gosden runners.

That’s why our tip for the Prince of Wales’s Stakes is Japan. It took him a while to come to hand last season but he made giant strides after finishing third in the Derby. He took his form to a new level with a win in the Juddmonte International and wasn’t disgraced when fourth in a soft ground Arc that stretched his stamina. He did win over further at last year’s Royal meeting but the drop in trip may suit even better this time.
