The Prince of Wales's Stakes 21th June

Prince of Wales Stakes Day at the 2017 Royal Ascot Festival will take place on Wednesday 21st June. It is the second day of the five-day horse racing festival at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire. The festival will take place from 20th – 24th June. It features 30 races in total, including the Ascot Gold Cup (22rd June), St James’s Palace Stakes (20th June) and Diamond Jubilee Stakes (24th June). Royal Ascot features some of the best runners and riders from Ireland, UK and all over the world.

Day 2 at Royal Ascot features six thrilling races, including the Group 1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes at 4.20pm. Other important races on Day 2 include the Queen Mary Stakes and the Duke of Cambridge Stakes. The day’s action will begin with the Jersey Stakes at 2.30pm. The feature race of the day is the Prince of Wales’s Stakes. It has been won in the past by brilliant horses like Ouija Board and Fantastic Light.

Day 2 Royal Ascot 2016 Results and Review

Day 2 at last year’s Ascot races opened with a solid win for Ribchester in the Jersey Stakes, after a steady ride by jockey William Buick. Frankie Dettori then took his first of two wins for the day on Lady Aurelia in the Queen Mary Stakes. The win was pretty comprehensive for Dettori and suggested that there will be a lot more to come from Lady Aurelia in the future. The Duke of Cambridge Stakes was up next, with the win going to Mickael Barzalona on race favourite Usherette.

There was something of a shock in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, with 16-1 shot My Dream Boat winning for trainer Clive Cox and jockey Adam Kirby. My Dream Boat’s win was all the more impressive given that he left future Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe winner Found and Japanese star A Shin Hikari trailing behind. It was also the second day running that popular jockey Adam Kirby won a Group 1 race, having taken the King’s Stand Stakes on Day 1. Other wins on Day 2 came for Portage in the Royal Hunt Cup and Dettori’s second victory in the Sandringham Stakes on Persuasive.

Who should I bet on for Royal Ascot Day 2?

My Dream Boat demonstrated that the biggest prizes in horse racing can be won by horses with long odds. Still, this year could see a firm favourite taking the Prince of Wales’s Stakes if the highly fancied Almanzor lines up for the race. Jean-Claude Rouget’s horse was highly impressive beating Found and My Dream Boat in the Champion Stakes at Ascot (October 2016). A big Royal Ascot win could be on the cards in 2017 for the talented Almanzor.
