Royal Ascot Day 1 Tips & Best Bets – Tuesday 16th June, 2020

Day One of the Royal Ascot carnival begins with an action packed racecard which includes the Group One Queen Anne Stakes and Group One King’s Stand Stakes. Take a look at our horse racing tips and best bets for Day 1  at Royal Ascot on Tuesday 16th June, 2020.

Royal Ascot – Race 1 10:15PM AEST

No. 8 Mutamaasik – Bet Now: $8.50

This is an open edition of the Buckingham Palace Handicap Mutamaasik represents value at his current quote.

The Dubawi gelding has recorded four wins from his five race starts and there is no reason that he can’t continue his winning ways.

Dane O’Neill will ride him aggressively in the early stages of this race and he will give his rivals something to catch.

Royal Ascot – Race 2 10:50PM AEST

No. 3 Circus Maximus – Bet Now: $3.60

The Queen Anne Stakes is always an outstanding race and the 2020 edition is no exception.

Circus Maximus won the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot 12 months ago and he went on to win the Prix Du Moulin De Longchamp at Group 1 level in France.

Ryan Moore in the saddle is a big positive and the Moore/Aidan O’Brien combination has an outstanding record at Royal Ascot.

Royal Ascot – Race 5 12:35AM AEST

No. 8 Glass Slippers – Bet Now: $5.50

Battaash will be tough to beat in the King’s Stand Stakes and is deserving of his status as a clear favourite, but there isn’t as much between him and Glass Slippers as the current market suggests.

Glass Slippers has recorded three wins on the trot and she went to another level when she won the Prix De L’abbaye De Longchamp Longines in France last year by a dominant three lengths.

She has more upside than any other horse in the field and she represents great value at her current odds of $5.

Royal Ascot – Race 7 1:40AM AEST

No. 1 Verdana Blue – Bet Now: $5.00

Verdana Blue is one of the most interesting runners set to compete at Royal Ascot and she is the horse to beat in the Ascot Stakes.

She is one of the best jumpers in the world and this will be her first appearance at the races since she finished fourth in the Christmas Hurdle.

On her best form, she has a class edge over the rest of this field and will prove tough to beat.
