Royal Ascot Day Two Preview and Tips

We've got another day of top-class racing at the 2010 Royal Ascot tomorrow as a cadre of Group 3's, 2's and 1's will be kicking off.

It was an excellent first-day at Ascot and we can only hope that day two is just as exciting.

In the Group 3 Jersey Stakes at 2:30, we've got a handful of interesting-looking 3 year-olds, and we've got Free Judgement (Vindication) and Godolphin's Shakespearean (Shamardal) leading the betting with 5.5 prices against a field of 13.

I expect fairly heavy volume on this one and I think the blue team could open things with a bang today. Shakespearean looked absolutely deadly on his seasonal debut when he captured a listed race on the Oaks undercard in the Investec Surrey Stakes. I think he's your bet and anything above 5.0 is good enough for me.

The Group 2 Windsor Forest Stakes pits some very high-quality fillies and mares against each other, and there are easily four or five who could take this one. Saaed Bin Suroor will be saddling Antara (Platini), who is dominating the early betting at 5.0.

Sir Michael Stoute's Strawberrydaiquiri (Dansili) boasts course and distance victories and was quite sharp when capturing the Group 3 Dahlia Stakes in early May. Alsace Lorraine (Giant's Causeway) has never finished outside of the top 2 in 3 runs at Ascot and just beat out a field of 14 over this surface in handicap company when sent off at 6/1. She's an outside bet, but looks a snip at 15.0.

The feature on today's card is the Group 1 Prince of Wales Stakes and this one reads a bit like a card from Meydan racecourse. A lot of these are very cultured globetrotting types and I expect this one to be an absolute classic.

The early story is all about Byword (Peintre Celebre) who is the favourite at 4.0. The classy Twice Over (Observatory) was a disappointing 10th in the Dubai World Cup, but ran a close third to the legendary Zenyatta (Street Cry) when taking third in the 2009 Breeders Cup Classic.

This contender has won at every Group level and trades at 6.0. Shadwell-bred Mawatheeq (Danzig) is an interesting outside selection and, should he still be progressing, is a decent shout at 6.5. This is a tough one.
