2020 King's Stand Stakes Tips and Predictions

The biggest race on Day 1 of the Royal Ascot Festival, the King's Stand Stakes is one of the most popular betting races on the UK calendar.

A quality field lines up every year and we will have tips for the 2020 King's Stand Stakes when markets are released.

2020 King's Stand Stakes Best Bet - Battaash @ 3.00 

Battaash is a slick customer and he could be one of the more popular runners taking part at the 2019 Royal Ascot Festival. 

Trained by Charlie Hills, the five-year-old son of Dark Angel scored a recent win in the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock when beating a nice field which included Alpha Delphini. 

Prior to that he looked good when running close at Longchamp and at York. His most recent experience running at Ascot came in this race last year when he was beaten by Blue Point by just over a length.
Take nothing away from that performance, however, as he’s grown nicely in the off-season and with eight wins from 16 starts, he’s a professional type which won’t be overawed by the occasion. 

3.00 is a price worth taking in a tough race. 

Battaash is a top elect for the King's Stand Stakes

2020 King's Stand Stakes Best Each Way - Blue Point @ 4.00 

Take nothing away from last year’s King’s Stand Stakes winner. Blue Point is in red-hot form for Charlie Appleby and if Meydan form lines up well, he could defend his title. 

The Godolphin runner has won his last three races in Dubai and although Dubai sprinting form is suspect at the best of times, he has been winning by big margins. 

His most recent win came in the Al Quoz Sprint and that’s typically good form for Royal Ascot. He returns to the track which saw him winning this race last year and he should be in great order. 

We are a little surprised to see him on the second line of betting. We thought bookies would open him as favourite, but that’s likely because punters haven’t seen him racing locally this season. 

2020 King's Stand Stakes Best Each Way - Invincible Army @ 13.00 

James Tate lines up the four-year-old which doesn’t have the same profile as Battaash and Blue Point, but could run into the money at odds. 

The Irish-bred runner has won his last two starts, including a 2.25-length win at York last start. That form hasn’t come at the highest level, but he hasn’t been tested either. 

He does have Group 1 experience when running ninth in the Commonwealth Cup at Ascot last season and he still defeated the majority of the field on that occasion. 

13.00 are odds worth taking in a race which can produce a surprise result.  

Best Bet: Battaash - 3.00 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Blue Point - 4.00 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Invincible Army - 13.00 @ bet365
