Royal Ascot betting tips: Previews for every race on Tuesday

Royal Ascot betting tips: Day 1

We will have Royal Ascot betting tips every day during the 2022 festival and kick off with a look at all seven races on Tuesday.

Our Royal Ascot preview picked out five horses to watch this week but now we take a more in-depth look at the races on day one.

2.30 Queen Anne Stakes

Baaeed will face six rivals as he bids to extend his unbeaten record to eight in the opening event of Royal Ascot 2022.

William Haggas’ charge, ridden by Jim Crowley, made a perfect return to action when strolling to a three-and-a-quarter-length victory in the Lockinge at Newbury last month and he is a very short price to add another Group One to his tally.

The Saeed bin Suroor-trained Real World was second that day and he reopposes, along with third Chindit (Richard Hannon) and fifth Sir Busker (William Knight).

Accidental Agent was a shock 33/1 winner of the race back in 2018 for Eve Johnston Houghton and he takes his chance again, with Aidan O’Brien’s Order Of Australia and the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Lights On completing the line-up.

3.05 Coventry Stakes

O’Brien will be double-handed in the Coventry Stakes with the unbeaten Group Three winner Blackbeard joined by recent Curragh scorer Age Of Kings.

Blackbeard – the son of No Nay Never – has won each of his three career outings, graduating from a Dundalk maiden to win a Listed contest at the Curragh, before taking Group Three gold on his most recent start.

That Marble Hill Stakes success was pretty impressive, with Ryan Moore opting to make all on his first try at six furlongs and Blackbeard looking much more impressive than the official margin of three and a half lengths suggests.

O’Brien has a strong hand of juvenile colts again this term and the fact Blackbeard takes his chance here speaks volumes so he looks a solid pick for Royal Ascot betting tips.

Hannon’s Persian Force is similarly unbeaten and vying for favouritism, with Archie Watson’s Bradsell and the Paul and Oliver Cole inmate Royal Scotsman also prominent in the betting, with a field of 17 declared.

3.40 King’s Stand Stakes

Wesley Ward’s Golden Pal leads an international line-up for the King’s Stand Stakes, with the Breeders’ Cup winner out to improve on his previous run at the Royal meeting, when beaten a neck by The Lir Jet in the Norfolk Stakes two years ago.

Eight-times Australian Group One winner Nature Strip represents Chris Waller with Ponntos adding a further international dimension for Czech handler Miroslav Nieslanik.

Trained by Chris Waller, Nature Strip has done most of his winning over six furlongs on home soil but with stablemate Home Affairs pencilled in for the Platinum Jubilee Stakes over that trip, the seven-year-old switches back to the minimum distance.

Given the Ascot five furlongs is on the stiff side, that may not be issue and Nature Strip is a Group One winner over the trip too, having landed last year’s Black Caviar Lightning.

Golden Pal undoubtedly has any amount of speed to burn, but he relinquished the lead in the dying strides when contesting the Norfolk here a couple of years ago and a similar fate might await this time.

The Andrew Balding-trained Kings Lynn will try to give the Queen a memorable Ascot win in her Platinum Jubilee year and he heads the home defence, with Twilight Calls (Henry Candy), Man Of Promise (Charlie Appleby) and Khaadem (Charlie Hills) other key names.

There is a dual Irish challenge among the 18 runners via Jack Davison’s Mooniesta and the Michael Browne-trained Logo Hunter.

4.20 St James’s Palace Stakes

Coroebus, who opened his season with Classic success in the 2000 Guineas, looks a worthy favourite in terms of Royal Ascot betting tips for the St James’s Palace Stakes.

Appleby’s charge has so far raced solely at Newmarket, where he has been beaten just once in four starts, and he will have a handful of Guineas also-rans in opposition.

Fifth Berkshire Shadow (Balding), sixth Lusail (Hannon), ninth Light Infantry (David Simcock) and 14th Checkandchallenge (Knight) all try their luck again.

O’Brien’s Aikhal, along with Jim Bolger’s Wexford Native and the Irish 2,000 Guineas second New Energy from Sheila Lavery’s yard, comprise the Irish challenge, with Haggas fielding two in German Guineas winner Maljoom and Heron Stakes hero My Prospero. Angel Bleu, Bayside Boy and Mighty Ulysses make up the list.

5.00 Ascot Stakes

Dan Skelton’s Proschema tops the weights for the 20-strong Ascot Stakes but Willie Mullins’ Bring On The Night is the favourite in the Royal Ascot odds.

Predominately jumps trainers have a rich heritage in this race and 8/1 shot Arcadian Sunrise looks a likely type for John Queally.

Fourth in the Chester Cup on his 2022 bow, Arcadian Sunrise did not particularly seem to relish the tight circuit on the Roodee, raising hopes Ascot and a move back up to two and a half miles might suit.

5.35 Wolferton Stakes

Last year’s winner Juan Elcano will face 15 rivals in defence of his Wolferton Stakes title.

There is little to chose between the top five in the betting, which includes Juan Elcano, but Cadillac is the slight favourite after winning at Leopardstown two weeks ago.

6.10 Copper Horse Stakes

Chester Cup winner Cleveland completes our Royal Ascot betting tips for Tuesday in the closing race.

Dropping back to 14 furlongs should not prove an issue for the Camelot colt as, while he triumphed over a two and a quarter miles at Chester, he was quick enough to strike over nine furlongs at the back end of last year.
