2020 Prince of Wales's Stakes Tips & Betting Predictions


The Prince of Wales's Stakes is the only Group 1 feature on Day 3 of the Royal Ascot Festival.

The 2018 running was an exciting affair and we have tips and betting predictions for the 2020 Prince of Wales's Stakes when the field is released.

2020 Prince of Wales's Stakes Best Bet - Sea of Class @ 3.50


Sea of Class has certainly made a terrific start to her career and she comes into this with a defeat, but it’s of the highest quality.


She finished a short neck behind Enable, which is considered one of the best horses racing in the world at the moment.


That second placing in the Arc was a mammoth effort and we’re surprised she’s not shorter in the betting for this.


Her form prior to that placing included four consecutive wins with two coming at Group 1 level and she looks like one of the better value bets of the festival.


2020 Prince of Wales's Stakes Best Each Way - Magical @ 4.00


Magical is the reason why Sea of Class isn’t shorter in the betting. The highly-experienced filly has seven wins from 15 starts and plenty of experience racing at the highest level.


Since running second behind Enable in the Breeders’ Cup Turf, Magical has scored three consecutive wins. 


One of those was a seven-length romp at The Curragh last start in the Tattersalls Gold Cup.


That’s some hot form coming into this and although Sea of Class has the more obvious form coming into this race, Magical must be respected as one of the best fillies in the land.

2020 Prince of Wales's Stakes Best Roughie - Crystal Ocean @ 6.00


This isn’t exactly a “roughie” selection but she’s too good to leave out of calculations. 


The Stoute-trained five-year-old has won half of her 14 career starts and comes into this riding a two-win streak.


The most recent win came only at Group 3 grade at Newbury, but she’s another runner which has a placing behind Enable and she hasn’t been far away since.


Her record since includes a placing behind Cracksman and back-to-back wins.


6.00 is a little short of value but we’re expecting bookmakers to take plenty of action for the first two picks and Crystal Ocean’s odds should drift because of that.


Best Bet: Sea of Class - 3.50 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Magical - 4.00 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Crystal Ocean - 6.00 @ bet365
