Following the events of Tuesday’s action, all eyes now turn to Wednesday’s card as day two of Royal Ascot approaches.

Our team hit the woodwork on a few occasions yesterday, and will be hoping to land a few winners from our best four bets of the day later this afternoon.


NYMPHADORA: 2:30pm Queen Mary Stakes (Fillies’ Group 2) – Andrew Balding’s filly came on leaps and bounds from her Newmarket debut when taking a Listed contest at York on her next start. A few of these rivals were behind her that day but she is sure to keep on improving and may be able to give a bold showing with the market principals under Jason Watson.

MOSTLY: 6:10pm Kensington Palace Stakes (Fillies’ & Mares’ Handicap) – The Gosden team enjoyed a fine start to the festival on Tuesday and their daughter of Makfi is likely to improve for the drop in trip. She disappointed when well favoured in the betting at Nottingham last time out but has a good level of form over the mile prior to that and it’s interesting that her top connections have opted for this route.

LADY BOWTHORPE: 3:40pm Duke Of Cambridge Stakes (Fillies’ & Mares’ Group 2) – William Jarvis’s mare outran her odds at Newbury in the Lockinge Stakes last month and that form was boosted when winner Palace Pier took yesterday’s Queen Anne. She is a C&D winner which counts for plenty and looks the one to beat despite her 3lbs penalty.

ARMORY: 4:20pm Prince Of Wales’s Stake (Group 1) – With last year’s winner Lord North now a non-runner, Love is a short, and deserved, favourite but perhaps the fitness edge will give her stable-mate the benefit here. He won the Huxley Stakes at Chester last time out in fine style and carries solid Group 1 form to the table here, remaining relatively unexposed over the mile-and-a-half trip.
