Royal Ascot Preview, Day Two

 Jun 20 2018

The Group One Prince of Wales’s Stakes (2012m) will be the centre of attention on Day Two of the Royal Ascot carnival.

Cracksman with Frankie Dettori is the odds-on favourite to claim a victory in the only Group One race of the day.

The Group Two Queen’s Vase (2834m) is a much more open affair with trainer Aidan O ‘Brien having three of the top four in the betting.

The first race of the day is the Queen Mary Stakes (1000m) at 11.30pm (AEST) and the sixth and final race of the day is the Group Three Jersey Stakes (1400m) at 2.35am (AEST).

Sky Racing’s International presenter, Richard Wade, will host the Sky Thoroughbred Central (Ch 528) coverage every night and below gives his thoughts and best bet on Day Two.

Richard tipped three winners of the six races on Day One: Race 2 Calyx ($3), Race 4 Without Parole ($3.20) and Race 5 Lagostovegas ($11) with TAB Fixed Odds.

All his Day Two tips and previews of each race can be found on the TAB App.

Richard’s One To Watch – Race 4 (1.20am) Prince Of Wales's Stakes

It's all about Cracksman, the best middle-distance horse in Europe in my opinion. He's scared off most of the opposition before the race and looks to have the Group 1 at his mercy.

Another one not to miss – Race 2 (12.05am) Queen's Vase

Aidan O'Brien has won four of the last eight renewals and has three huge chances with Southern France the pick of them but I’m siding with John Gosden’s Stream Of Stars to win the race.

Richard’s Best Bet – Emaraaty in Race 6 (2.35am) Jersey Stakes

Emaraaty ran a big race second up in a valuable handicap and looks to have huge potential.
