Free tips Royal Ascot Betting: Can Lady Aurelia take a third Royal Ascot win?

Royal Ascot Betting Tips

Royal Ascot Betting Tip – Kings Stand Stakes

Three time Royal Ascot winners are as rare as a snowflake in summer-time.  Sagaro claimed three consecutive Gold Cups and Yeats won the two and a half mile marathon four times between 2006 and 2009.  Read on for our Royal Ascot betting tip for Day 1 (Tuesday)

But a sprinter returning to the Berkshire racecourse and winning three times at flat racings showcase meeting is unprecedented.  Nevertheless it could happen on Tuesday when Lady Aurelia attempts to win at the Royal Ascot meeting for the third consecutive time.

9/4 Lady Aurelia to make Royal Ascot history?

The American-trained filly lines up in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes, the race she won easily in 2017.  In 2016 she took the Queen Mary Stakes, a race restricted to two-year-olds, in breathtaking fashion.

Once again the Puerto Rican born jockey, John Velazquez, will ride on the star performer who is available at a top-price of 9/4 (with BlackType and Boylesports).  

13 rivals stand in her way and she has a genuine adversary in the shape of the Charlie Hills trained Baattash who is also trading at 9/4 (Paddy Power). Battaash, the 2017 Prix de l’Abbaye winner, won the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock on his 2018 seasonal debut.  

The Draw

Royal Ascot Betting TipNaturally Ascot’s race track features a lot of real estate and the King’s Stand Stakes often sees two or even three groups of runners thundering up the straight.  

But, as Lady Aurelia (starts from stall 7) and Battaash (stall 9) are drawn nearby, is there a chance they will cut each other’s throats in a pace duel?

In fact, as third favourite Blue Point (9/1 BlackType) will emerge from stall 10 and Kachy (10/1 Ladbrokes) goes from the 6 path, there is a real chance these favourites will over-race in the opening few furlongs.

And there is yet more potential hazards for punters given Battaash has shown a an ability to be cantankerous and play up at the start of his races – as he did in last season’s Nunthorpe Stakes.  A repeat would not help his chances and could affect the horses drawn alongside him.

Our Royal Ascot Betting Tip – A Longshot

Ultimately Lady Aurelia and Battaash look a class apart from their rivals albeit the likelihood of them finishing 1-2 looks remote.  Any horse that tries to go toe-to-toe with these speedsters could be cooked by halfway, so looking for a long-shot to back each-way could be the way to bet.

Our pin lands on the Aidan O’Brien trained Battle of Jericho (66/1 William Hill) who may have a golden highway to run down from his stall 1 draw and there is no saying how good he is having been tried at Group level last year as a two-year-old and winning his only start as a three-year-old convincingly at the end of May.
