The world’s eyes are on Royal Ascot 2022, a great way to start a five-day luxury rather than having two of the world’s best horses share the spotlight.
Three Group 1 races will be held on Tuesday, and the most famous conferences on the planet will always start with a fuss, but this year’s showcase will be taken to a whole new level thanks to two stars from different hemispheres. ..
Baaeed is one of the representative lights of the Northern Hemisphere and is expected to make a leap forward in the meeting by landing the opening race Group One Queen Anne Stakes (1,600m).
Recognized as the sixth best horse in the world alongside Hong Kong superstar Golden Sixty in 2021, this four-year-old horse has earned an even higher rank this year and is the best horse to race. Achieved a rating of (125). When I won the Group One Lockinge Stakes in three lengths last month in 2022.
That arrogant victory was his third at Group 1 level, extending his undefeated run to 7, and bookmakers estimated him as the first horse to decorate the winner’s enclosure at around $ 1.29, the shortest of the meeting. Means to post as a price favorite.
It was a big surprise that he was beaten, and the Panther could be advised to focus on finding something to chase him home. Brien.
Some Northern Hemisphere stars look like penalty kicks, but one of the best in the Southern Hemisphere faces fierce competition in his quest to bring the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes (1,000m) trophy back to Australia. doing.
The Nature Strip, rated just £ 1 behind this year’s Baaeed, is one of the best sprinters in the world, winning 20 out of 37 races and 8 out of 14 races in Group 1. increase.
The International Raiders have a decent record at King’s Stand Stakes, with the Little Bridge in Hong Kong in 2012, and Australia (4) and runners from the United States have been successful in the last 20 years. ..
The biggest threat to Nature Strip comes from American challenger Golden Pal, who has experience with Royal Ascot, after winning the last three group races in the United States and finishing second at the conference at the age of two. Seems to be there.
The last group 1 on the card is St. James’s Palace Stakes (1,600m). This is a race where some of Britain’s and Ireland’s best 3-year-old Colts compete.
Coroebus could become another low-priced favorite after a spectacular victory at 2,000 guineas in the New Market in April. The form of the race was then flanked by the Runner-up Native Trail, which continued to win 2,000 guineas in Ireland.
However, it may be worth watching the market carefully when it comes to MyProspero. He improved on every start of Baaeed trainer William Haggas, has a pedigree with top performers scattered around, and easily defeated proven group performers on his third start last time.
The top boy Colt has a chance to show off their potential in Group 2 Coventry Stakes (1,200m) and it is always worth paying attention to O’Brien’s runners. O’Brien has won the race seven times since the turn of the century, with the Age of Kings and Blackbeard in the field.
The three super-competitive races that conclude the first day of the carnival are one of the longest races in the world, the Ascot Stakes (4,000m), featuring numerous jump trainers trying to gate crash the biggest flat party of the season. ..
Jumpboy has won the last 12 runs of the race and everything trained by Willy Marines, Nicky Henderson, Gordon Elliott and Aranking is worth careful consideration.
