Royal Ascot 2020: Day Two Tips
Posted in: Royal Ascot Tips
13:15 Silver Royal Hunt Cup Handicap - Ascot
OUZO took his form to a new level when runner-up at Newmarket on return, and appeals as the type who could do better still over the course of the season, so his claims appear to be bright. Impressive Yarmouth-scorer Maydanny heads up the dangers, along with Salayel and Brian Epstein.
13:50 Hampton Court Stakes (Group 3) - Ascot
RUSSIAN EMPEROR shaped best in a messy renewal of the Derrinstown Derby Trial at Leopardstown last week and there is more to come from him. He can resume winning ways with Ryan Moore on board for the first time. First Receiver can progress further for Sir Michael Stoute and is a big danger, while Guineas-fifth Juan Elcano could be set for another big run if his stamina lasts out.
14:25 King George V Stakes (Handicap) - Ascot
The vast majority of the field tackles 1½m for the first time and plenty are likely to improve for it. KIPPS shaped really well on his Haydock return 10 days ago and gets the vote from the same mark. Arthurian Fable is another who looks well treated turned out before reassessed on the back of a narrow reappearance defeat. Win O'Clock, Convict and Trumpet Man also make the shortlist.
15:00 Prince Of Wales's Stakes (Group 1) - Ascot
There is more to come from HEADMAN this year and he could offer a bit of value against Japan. He went from strength to strength last term and wasn't seen to best effect in the Irish Champion on his final start. There is a Group 1 in him for sure, as there are more in Juddmonte-winner Japan, who ran a cracker in the Arc when last seen. Lord North is on the up and could be set for a huge effort.
15:35 Royal Hunt Cup (Heritage Handicap) - Ascot
This is one of the very few big handicaps that Mark Johnston has yet to win but DARK VISION is taken to put that right. He pulled clear of a subsequent winner when going close at Newcastle recently and remains on an attractive mark. Unexposed trio Montatham, Bell Rock and Lord Tennyson are all feared greatly, while Alrajaa ended 2019 on the up and is also shortlisted, along with Fox Premier.
16:10 Windsor Castle Stakes (listed) - Ascot
MIGHTY GURKHA landed only a modest contest at Lingfield first time out but the way he kicked clear in the straight marked him down as a really classy colt, so he's capable of making a serious impact at this higher level. Fellow impressive debut winners Chief Little Hawk and Sunshine City also warrant plenty of respect for their powerful stables.
16:40 Copper Horse Handicap - Ascot
RANCH HAND found the extreme test of the Cesarewitch too much last autumn but Andrew Balding's low-mileage 4-y-o is fancied to get back on track now he reverts to the distance of his impressive Haydock victory. Top-weight Collide is taken to push him close under his 5 lb penalty, while another hat-trick seeker in Selino is worth a second look too in a very open contest.
