Royal Ascot – Day Two.

Frankel the Destroyer!

Whatta guy!

Or perhaps – Whatta horse!

An 11 length lead put Excelebration, and the rest of the field well and truly in their place…

What a cracking first day to the best-ist Royal meeting in the world!

Royal Ascot!

The first race of the meeting could very well be the best of all the races!

But No!

It got better with the next race!

We copped a nice 12/1 winner with Little Bridge!


That keeps us going for the next few days!

Today’s races are slightly different from yesterday, with big fields, young horses, with fillies and mares races too.

This makes some of the races a touch tougher today, and while they will be good to watch, they will be very competitive, and there will be some big priced winners.

How many of you got The Queen‘s colour of dress?

She always wears a kind of purple-’y pink colour of a twenty pound note at some stage!

So watch out! She’s a canny lass!

Here is the race by race guide……


Day 2 – Wednesday

Jersey Stakes

The Jersey Stakes, it is a Group 3 race, which is open to three-year-old horses, over a distance of 7 furlongs.

This group 3 race attracts the up and coming horses that have won listed races, that just don’t like mile plus trip, so have not made it to the Guineas and Derby.

I have found this a tough race to pick a winner in the past and this year is no different, but after some study I have a good horse froma good stable…..

This race is available on the Members Online service, or the Text Tips.

Windsor Forest Stakes
The second race is the Windsor Forest Stakes, it is a Group 2 race, which is open to fillies and mares aged four years plus, over a distance of 1 mile.

This race is one of a few were designed as an incentive to keep more mares from being prematurely retired to stud, and I would love Banimpire to be entered in this race, but alas, she is busy in other ways at the moment!

The trainer Michael Stoute has been lucky here, with three wins, but he has no runner ths year, and the race has only existed for a few years, so there are no concrete trends to go with.

The Free Horse Tips won in this race in 2010 with the easy to spell – Strawberrydaiquiri, named after the cocktail of crushed strawberries, at a solid price, but this years race looks to revolve around two horses.

Some of you may think I would have gone for Roger Varians Nahrain, and she will be thereabouts, but Emulous is match fit, fresh from the Curragh, and she looks the better girl, as the betting suggests.

Prince of Wales’s Stakes

The Prince of Wales’s Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race open to horses aged four years or older over a distance of 1 mile and 2 furlongs.

The runners in this race will be glad Frankel is not running, as he could have done this trip nicely, but his absence leaves So You Think as the odds on favourite.

The two obvious horses here are Carlton House, who let down the Horse Racing Tips, and the Queen last year, and So You Think, and So You Think who was beated by Cirrus Des Aigles (A winning tip!).

So I feel both of these horses are ‘to be shot at!’, and there is a solid big priced chance on the Members Online service, or the Text Tips.

Royal Hunt Cup

The Royal Hunt Cup is a race which is open to horses aged three years or older, over a distance of 1 mile.

The cup is one of three races at Royal Ascot that is presented by the Queen, along with the Gold Cup and the Queen’s Vase.

Most of the other trophies at the Royal meeting must be returned every year, but these three are re-made each year, so are kept permanently by the winners.

One sunny day it could be me….!


This is one of the most competitive races at Ascot with 30+ runners steaming down the straight for a mile, so look for bias clues, but it’s not surprising the favourites do not have a easy time here!

This is a very trappy race, and there are quite a few that could come out of the pack to ‘gazump’ another on the line!

Edinburgh Knight looks good for a place, and Rock Critic could surprise, but I have a horse that like the going, and will like the trip.

This race is available on the Members Online service, or the Text Tips.

Queen Mary Stakes

The Queen Mary Stakes is a Group 2 race, which is open to two-year-old fillies, over a distance of 5 furlongs.

This is a relatively young race in comparison with some of the others at this meeting, only coming into this world in 1921, and named after the Queen at the time.

It is a high class race with the age window here only being 12 months, it can be a dicey field to pin down a winner, with few favourites, as some of the girls have not reached their potential yet, but will over time.

A tough race to tip!

There are plenty in with a chance, and betting should be light in this race. I will be keeping an eye on Jadanna, but the vote goes to Graphic Guest who should finish strongly.

Sandringham Handicap

Another race with girls, the Sandringham Handicap Stakes is a listed race for three-year-old filly’s over one mile.

Favourites again, don’t have the run of this race with only a couple popping in the last few renewals, so study that form!

There are plenty of trainers that have done well in this race, Ed, John Dunlop and Michael Bell with wins in recent years, but with no entries this year.

I’d love to tip Pimpernel, but the going and recent form puts a line through his name on the marker sheet, the favourite Electrelane looks a good horse, but I will be going for a bigger price with the top jock on board, in this open race – Ladys First.

Here is the checklist to keep you get the best value:-

1. Sign up with a few bookmakers, so you can use some of the free cash offers to bet with, and get the bigger odds available.

2. Use Odds Checker or Odds Comparison to find out which firm offers the highest odds, and take the best odds guaranteed price on every horse you wish to bet. Very important.

3. Check the bookmakers you use for any offers or bonuses that are available – Things like- Money back for coming second – Extra places paid – ¼ odds on large non-handicap races. Look at the website, or the ads in the Racing Post, (paper version) to find out who is giving what.

4. I will try to advise when I see a good offer, but they will not generally be available the night before, when some of you like to get the tips to monitor the price, so look in the morning if you have not yet placed your bet.

5. I will send an extra email out in the evening, to show that the next days Premium tips are ready on-line for the Monthly Members, or the Premium tips can be accessed on the text service, generally from around 5-7pm (ish).

6. I will offer a small perm placepot, a larger placepot, and a Lucky 15, or a Treble on the on-line Premium Members tips service only (text service has limited space):-

7. Try to target your money on your main fancies, if you cannot make your mind up, have a small bet for fun, or just watch the race. There is plenty of races over the five days of the meeting to win on.
