We take a look at some of the major races from the meeting and hope to pinpoint some of the antepost runners worth keeping an eye on.
St James Palace Stakes
St James Palace Stakes is a Group 1 three-year-old race that takes place on the first day of the event. It is a 7 furlongs 213-yard turf race with a vast history.
Palace Pier is the potential horse to win this race. He is one of the energetic horses with an incredible racing career. This five-year horse won St James Palace Stakes in 2020. However, Poetic Flare outperformed last year and won the title.
Lope Y Fernandez is another top contender for the race with an experienced trainer, Aidan P. O’Brian. His career includes three first, two second, and two third positions in 13 runs. Last year, Lope gave Palace Pier a tough time in the Queen Ann Stakes. But, he managed to hold the second position.
Ascot Gold Cup takes place on the third day or Ladies Day of the Royal Ascot every year. This is a 3 miles 3 furlongs and 210 yards race eligible for horses aged four years or older. This type of this Group 1 race is Thoroughbred and was established in 1807.
Stradivarius has a high potential to win this race and there are numerous factors for that. Since 2017, this outperforming horse won many titles, especially in the Ascot Gold Cup. He won three consecutive years in this third-day featured race from 2018 to 2020. What’s more, he won three major titles, which include Lonsdale Cup, Doncaster Cup, and Sagaro Stakes in 2021.
Subjectivist is a class well-performing horse with high potential to win Ascot Gold Cup in 2022. He defeated Stradivarius last year in this race and failed his attempt to win the fourth consecutive race in the event. He has five major wins in his career. But, we can expect a lot more from him this year.
Coronation Stakes is a fourth-day featured race of the Royal Ascot. The total distance of this race is 7 furlongs and 213 yards. Three-year-old fillies qualify for this turf race. Last year we noticed Alcohol-Free outperform other participants in this race. But, this year new horses hold top positions in betting odds.
Campanelle is a three-year-old filly who became a Top-rated European two-year-old filly in 2020. Since then, she won three major races that include Queen Mary Stakes, Prix Morny, and Commonwealth Cup. This young filly has a high chance to win 2022’s Coronation Stakes under Wesley Ward’s training.
Alcohol Free is still in the top three winning odds for Coronation Stakes. She is a four-year-old filly with five first positions, one-second position, and one-third positions in her career. Surprisingly, she has 50% winnings in her career.
