The 2020 Lockinge Stakes promises to be a thrilling contest down the straight at Newbury and we're picking a minor upset.

Beat The Bank might have been disappointing in this race last year but his local form since has been strong and we're picking a bounce-back effort.

Le Brivido heads the betting in what should be a classic contest.

2020 Lockinge Stakes Best Bet - Beat The Bank @ 8.00


Beat The Bank has been in interesting form for the last year, but he comes into this with a strong win at Sandown in the bet365 Mile.

The seven-year-old was coming off two tough runs in the QEII Stakes at Ascot and a 11th-place finish in the Hong Kong Mile.

Returning to local racing helped the son of Paco Boy and his last start half-length win should give bettors plenty on confidence going forward.

Bookmakers have him at 8.00 and that's a good price for a runner with experience in this race, coupled with recent winning form.

He's worth another go and with eight wins from 15 starts overall, he's a consistent type.

2020 Lockinge Stakes Best Each Way - Lord Glitters @ 9.00


Lord Glitters has received a good barrier of 11 and that should allow him to fully wind up late. The French-trained winner of five looked good at Meydan last start and that form bodes well for this.

The son of Whipper ran third behind Almond Eye, which is one of the best-rated thoroughbreds in the world. He shouldn't find the opposition any harder here and we're expecting a nice effort from the visitor.

His most recent win came at York when he scored by a half length. He will need to lift based on that effort but the odds are appealing and he will be an attractive pick on the day.

Some of the other runners might have more wins on the board but Lord Glitters isn't far off his statement victory.

2020 Lockinge Stakes Best Roughie - Without Parole @ 13.00


Without Parole is always a winning chance despite his form. The four-year-old wasn't too bad in defeat behind Almond Eye last start and he's a better chance back on home turf.

A son of Frankel, the four-time winner has shown his ability by winning the St James's Palace Stakes and we're a firm believer that form is only temporary.

Punters should be turned on by his double-figure odds and we'll happily take the 13.00 on offer for a quality colt.

Best Bet: Beat The Bank - 8.00 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Lord Glitters - 9.00 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Without Parole - 13.00 @ bet365
