2020 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Tips & Picks


The King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes is one of the biggest European races of the season, running for a big stake on July 26 at Royal Ascot.

A quality field will line up in what is a quality feature race following the Royal Ascot Festival in June.

Enable currently heads the betting but there's a host of quality thoroughbreds waiting in the wings. Crystal Ocean, Sea of Class and Japan have all attracted interest in the betting.

2020 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Best Bet - Enable @ 1.67


Enable is the best horse in the world and she showed that when winning the Coral Eclipse Stakes last time out on July 6.

The five-year-old is trained by John Gosden and looks to have this field at her mercy. Her opening odds of 3.50 have been smashed into 1.67 and we're hardly surprised.

She has only tasted defeat on one occasion from 12 career starts and although there are some nice types in this field, including Crystal Ocean, she has the clear wood on those runners.

Take the 1.67 on offer at bet365 and watch a champion.

Enable is the overwhelming race favourite

2020 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Best Each Way - Crystal Ocean @ 3.75


Crystal Ocean is in career-best form having won his last three starts, which included a win in the Group 1 Prince of Wales's Stakes during the Royal Ascot meeting.

That was a long overdue win at the top level and it should give Crystal Ocean plenty of confidence to take on the world's best horse.

Can Crystal Ocean defeat Enable? He finished 3.5 lengths behind her in the September Stakes last year so it will be tough, but he has certainly improved since that time.

Bettors are getting good each-way odds for Crystal Ocean and they're worth taking.

2020 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Best Roughie - Defoe @ 13.00


Defoe is an experienced winner on nine from his 18 starts, including a half-length win at Ascot last time out.

Prior to that he was a terrific winner of the Group 1 Coronation Cup at Epsom when beating a quality field and those wins would hold him in good stead here.

He has yet to face such quality as Enable and Crystal Ocean but he's more than capable of running a good race here and shouldn't be overlooked because of the odds.

Best Bet: Enable - 1.67 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Crystal Ocean - 3.75 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Defoe - 13.00 @ bet365
