19TH JUNE 2019 ROYAL ASCOT PREVIEW
2.30 QUEEN MARY STAKES
The last 10 year as thrown up two decent winners for Wesley Ward with Lady Aurelia and Acapulco plus Rizeena a Group 1 Coronation Stakes winner and in the past some good fillies have won this including Lyric Fantasy,Queens Logic and dual classic heroine Attraction
This years renewal as a lot of potential with a lot of fillies putting unbeaten records on the line and out of the 28 runners you could definitely have a shortlist of half that its so competitive

Win FINAL SONG
EW KIMARI
3.05 QUEENS VASE
This race used to be run over 2 miles but it got reduced this distance and upgraded to Group 2 it now gets a better calibre of entry although some decent horses won it before that but the last 2 winners Stradavarius and Kew Gardens shows you the quality needed to win.
I dont think there is a great deal of strength in this years renewal myself outside the first three in the betting but going might help the outsider if the forecast rains arrive

MY SELECTIONS
Win JALMOUD
EW BARBADOS
3.40 PRINCE OF WALES STAKES
Always a competive race since it gained Group 1 status in 2000 when it was won by probably the best horse to win the race Dubai Millennium and since then several genuine group 1 performers have gone on to win it
This years renewal although a small field as two genine Group 1 contenders in Magical and Sea Of Class plus Crystal Ocean who is improving

MY SELECTIONS
Win MAGICAL
EW NO SELECTION DUE TO LITTLE VALUE BUT SEA OF CLASS THE DANGER
4.20 DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE STAKES
First run in 2004 and been won by a couple of top class fillies notably Soviet Song
This years renewal is a very competive but weak affair for a Group 2 the highest rated having a handicap mark of 110 and that looks inflated so not a races to get excited about but plenty of value for punters

Win VERACIOUS
EW DANS DREAM
5.00 ROYAL HUNT CUP
Probaly the most competive race of the meeting its a handicap but you need to be up to listed or group level to win it and the bottom weight being 99 proves that
This years renewal is really difficult I've tipped up a couple of former Group 1 performers on the site so it shows you how good a handicap it is the draw will probably play a huge part but if your in the middle you will have the choice and thats were a few I like are drawn

MY SELECTIONS
Win ROBIN OF NAVAN AND KEY VICTORY
EW SENIORITY AND ZHUI FENG
5.35 WINDSOR CASTLE STAKES
Day two finishes with a 2yo cavalry charge a listed race which is often won by a horse that remains at this level it tends to be horses not good enough for the Coventry but its a decent race in its own right
I think this years renewal meets that criteria but it does look stronger than recent runnings so time will tell
