We get going with three Group Two races in a row to start. The Queen Mary Stakes is a race for the 2 year-old fillies and with 17 of the last 18 winners finishing first or second last time out, this is a key trend to look for.

Royal Ascot Day 2 continues with one of the long-distance races for the Queen’s Vase next, so another contest the jumping yards tend to target. However, 13 of the last 17 winners were won by the Aidan O’Brien, Sir Michael Stoute or Mark Johnston yards.

The Duke Of Cambridge Stakes is next up – a Group Two contest that was won by Move Swiftly in 2019. With 13 of the last 16 winners aged 4 years-old this is another key trend to look for.

The Royal Ascot day two feature is the Group One Prince Of Wales’s Stakes and with top trainer Sir Michael Stoute having won the last two runnings then they are a yard to follow. A massive 17 of the last 18 winners were aged 4 or 5 years-old.

We end Royal Ascot day two with the ultra-competitive Royal Hunt Cup – a race that generally has 25+ runners in and is one of well-contested races at the five-day meeting and then the Group Three Windsor Castle Stakes. 14 of the last 18 winners returned a double-figure price, while 15 of the last 18 were aged 4 or 5 years-old.

The Windsor Castle is the final race on Ascot Wednesday – another race for the 2 year-olds, but also a race that we’ve only seen three winning favourites in the last 18 runnings.
