2010 Royal Ascot Tips and Selections for Wednesday

We've got a first-rate day of racing action ahead of us at Ascot today, and we can only hope it matches up against the thrills on opening day.

The Group 3 Jersey Stakes are the first one off and you can see why this 7f dash is such a tough handicap- there are a lot of high-quality contenders and there is all sorts of patchy form about. The 5.5 favourite Shakespearean (Shamardal) is a justifiable selection, and Godolphin may be able to produce a few more interesting results at the Ascot Festival.

He opened the season with a listed victory on the Epsom Oaks undercard. Free Judgement (Vindication) at 5.5 and Red Jazz (Johannesburg) at 8.0 look like possible spoilers here.

In the Windsor Forest Stakes, we have a very interesting field of fillies and mares facing off over 1m. Sir Michael Stoute's Strawberrydaiquiri (Dansili) has dropped and is now the 4.5 favourite.

She took the Group 3 Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket for her seasonal debut as a four year-old. Antara (Platini) has taken four from her past four and that includes her English debut after shipping from Germany in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes- a group 3 contest at Epsom on the Derby undercard. The defending Windsor Forest Stakes Spacious (Nayef) is a decent shout at 7.0, but hasn't won since capturing this race last year.

The Group 1 Prince of Wales Stakes looks like a really tough puzzle to solve, and it reads similar to one of the Dubai cards with so many top-class international contenders set to face off against each other

Byword (Peintre Celebre) is the current betting favourite with a 4.0 price. While he was just beaten out by Goldikova at Longchamp in the Group 1 Prix D'Ispahan, he did capture the Group 2 Prix Du Muguet at Saint-Cloud. This is a talented colt and could be a force to be reckoned with.

Twice Over (Observatory) is a real globetrotter and is the firm 6.0 second favourite. Keep your eye on Presvis (Sakhee) at 8.0 as a possible spoiler while Allybar (King's Best) is looking like a there-or-thereabouts type of contender and could be worth an each-way at 15.0.

The Royal Hunt Cup is a tough-looking race and this is where we'll see our longest-odds winner. Good things have been said about Tryst (Highest Honor) a winner of the Prix de Graslin at Nantes on his seasonal debut. Hayley Turner has the mount and in a field of 30 contenders looks like a real up-and-comer having been lightly-raced over his career; you'll find him around 15.0.

The Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes is an exciting 5f dash for 2 year-old fillies, and we've got a field of 18 really progressive-looking types. This race might just come down to luck, but the David Wachman-trained Meow (Storm Cat) is looking interesting at 5.0 while Maqaasid (Green Desert) is the current favourite having just come off the maiden circuit. You'll find her at 4.5.

The final race of the day is the Sandringham Handicap. Many punters will look to play Dubai Media (Songandaprayer) on an each-way; as he's listed at around 41.0. She was just beaten by Miss Zooter (Intikhab) who is also lining up in this race and is priced at a much more plausible 13.0. That would be a very profitable repeat on the forecast. We could see improvement from Siyaadah (Shamardal) who has Ahmed Ajtebi aboard and trades at 21.0.
