Tuesday Royal Ascot

Hi all,

Time flies when you get older, and it's hard to believe that Royal Ascot is here once more. It only seems like last month that I was preparing for the Cheltenham Festival, and now I’m gearing up for the best flat racing meeting of the season. It’s going to be a busy week for yours truly, and I'll need a holiday once it's over.

My Tuesday Royal Ascot preview is already with Victor Value subscribers, and if you’re on the Geegeez mailing list, you’ll see that I have previewed the Group 2 Coventry Stakes (3:05). My output for the Daily Punt will be minimal over the next five days, but I will provide some Placepot suggestions.

Royal Ascot – Day 1

As ever, Royal Ascot kicks off with a bang. The seven-race card features three Group 1s, a Group 2, a Listed contest, and two big field handicaps with maximum field sizes. The mix of high-class races and competitive betting heats provides a perfect balance.

For me, the race of the day is the Group 1 St James's Palace Stakes (4:25), which sees a clash of the English, Irish, and French 2,000 Guineas winners. Add in the Aidan O’Brien-trained colt Henry Longfellow, and you have the makings of the race of the week.

The King Charles III Stakes might not have the excitement and potential of the St James's Palace Stakes (3:45) but with no outstanding sprinter around it’s an open looking race and arguably the most competitive on the card

The action kicks off after the Royal procession with the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes at 2:30.

For those of you lucky to have Tuesday off you can watch all the seven races live on ITV Racing.

Royal Ascot Placepot

Here are my Tuesday Royal Ascot Placepot picks.

2:30 – Charyn & Big Rock

3:05 – Andesite and Electrolyte.

3:45 – Andesite & Twilight Calls

4:25 – Metropolitan & Henry Longfellow

5:05 – My Lyka & Temporize

5:45 – Botanical.

The best advice I can give for Royal Ascot is to treat the meeting as a marathon, not a sprint. Unless you really fancy a few on Day 1, I would play it cautious. The bookies tend to be even more conservative over the first couple of days of the meeting, so pacing yourself is crucial. I will be playing the first day very cautiously and won't be having a lot of bets.

Good luck with your Tuesday bets.
