King’s Stand Stakes Free Tips, Bets and Field Preview – 2020

The King’s Stand Stakes is one of the most exciting contests at the Royal Ascot Carnival each year and we are set for a typically strong edition of the featured sprint on Tuesday night.

Australia hasn’t been able to send any horses to England this year, but we have a strong record in this race particularly, with the likes of Choisir, Takeover Target, Miss Andretti and Scenic Blast all being crowned the King’s Stand Stakes winner this century.

King’s Stand Stakes – Winner

No. 1 Battaash – Bet Now: $1.75

He hasn’t been seen at the races since October but unsurprisingly, Battaash has opened our odds-on favourite in King’s Stand Stakes betting.

Simply put, the six-year-old son of Dark Angel doesn’t know how to run a bad race and has amassed an impressive ten wins and five minors from twenty career starts, including nine wins in Stakes company.

Last time in, he recorded three impressive wins highlighted by a Group 1 triumph in the Nunthorpe Stakes and finished second behind the talented Blue Point in this race.

He will take a power of beating and it would take a braver man than me to tip against him.

King’s Stand Stakes – 2nd

No. 11 Liberty Beach – Bet Now: $8.50

Liberty Beach will take winning form into the King’s Stand Stakes and looks the biggest danger to the odds-on favourite.

The Cable Bay filly has recorded five wins and a close-up second from her seven career starts so far, winning the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes most notably during her debut prep.

She returned from a decent break to win comfortably at Haydock last week and will only improve from that effort.

I concede that this is a big step up in class for her, but she gets in light and is worthy of her chance.

King’s Stand Stakes – 3rd

No. 8 Glass Slippers – Bet Now: $5.50

Glass Slipper is another horse that will contest the 2020 King’s Stand Stakes first-up and she has claims on winning.

The Dream Ahead mare was a strong and consistent performer last time in, but there is no doubt that she was far more effective with a few runs under her belt, having finished down the order at Newbury when resuming.

Her prep culminated in three-consecutive wins, including a Group 1 sprint at Longchamp in France and anything close to her best would see her fighting out the finish on Tuesday night.

King’s Stand Stakes – 4th

No. 5 Sergei Prokofiev – Bet Now: $34.00

Sergei Prokofiev is set to go around at an enormous price ($41 at publish) but if there is a combination for potent than Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore at Royal Ascot, I am yet to hear about it.

Sergei Prokofiev has mixed his form a little but has amassed four wins and a placing from his twelve career starts, all but one of which have been in Stakes company.

He clearly needed the run when he finished down the order at Naas when resuming this time, but he’ll enjoy good improvement for the hit-out and I can’t write him off.
