Stephen Harris’ Ascot Stakes Preview

A stiff test for all, with the unusual trip of two miles three furlongs and 210 yards meaning stamina is at a premium up the straight. Open to four year olds and upwards, the £90,000 in prize money means this is a rare opportunity for jumps based trainers to have a real tilt at a top cash prize away from Cheltenham and Aintree.

Ascot Stakes Tips 2020

Summer Moon, Ascot Stakes Tip #1

Mark Johnston’s stayer showed that a thorough test of stamina suited him ideally when third in the 2019 Cesarewich at Newmarket behind Stratum, and seems sure to be primed first time out this season for a yard in terrific form.

Moon King, Ascot Stakes Tip #2

All of Ralph Beckett’s runners have been in terrific heart since the season started on June 1st, and his relentless galloper could have an important fitness edge here after a gutsy win at Haydock eight days ago. He takes plenty of driving, but keeps responding for pressure, and this step up to 2m4f could bring about further improvement.

Ascot Stakes Winners

This handicap dates back to 1988 and provides a stern test of stamina for the runners, and it can be no surprise at all that top jumps trainers have targetted the race with their horses better known for their exploits over obstacles. Willie Mullins has won the race a remarkable four times in the last eight years, with Simenon in 2012 starting off a brilliant run. In 2019 The Grand Visir took the spoils for Ian Williams, swooping late and fast under a strong drive from Richard Kingscote.
