Stan James Bonus Code for Royal Ascot 2012


The upcoming Royal Ascot meeting is looking like a tantalizing set of fixtures with two of the best horses in recent memory both set to take to the track over the widely-anticipated meeting. Frankel will be running in the Queen Anne while Australian super mare Black Caviar is set to contest the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.


It appears as though there is only one genuine standout candidate to defeat Black Caviar and that's the well-respected Juddmonte sprinter Bated Breath – a five-year-old son of Dansili. While boasting a relatively indifferent record over the 2011 campaign, he has just scored in the Group 2 Temple Stakes at the same distance and many will be expecting him to at least offer up a challenge to the venerable undefeated mare.

He is the firm head of the “betting without Black Caviar” market at virtually every bookmaker.

Another big challenger to Black Caviar's claims is a four-year-old filly by Invincible Spirit. Moonlight Cloud ran lights out last time to win by two lengths at Longchamp. Sent off as the 11/5 favourite among a group of 15 runners, it was actually a better victory than the margin might suggest. She tracked smartly and showed a turn of foot beyond her ten race career.

Obviously, Moonlight Cloud takes a big step up to take on the likes of Black Caviar but an all-distaff exacta might just be the order of the day.

Dubai Golden Shaheen winner Krypton Factor continues to trade at an enticing price – you'll find the four-year-old son of Kyllachy priced at around 16/1 with most major bookmakers. Only four and having run 21 career races – most of which have come at Meydan – he did battle with Hitchens throughout much of the 2012 Carnival.

Unraced at Ascot, he has won one of the world's best sprint races and perhaps deserves more respect than he's been getting. His sole poor effort this year came at Kranji when he finished fifth in the International Sprint. Sent off at 3/5 that day, he was just a bit out of his element and was beaten 6 and 1/4 lengths.
