Hardwicke Stakes Tips 2020

Elarqam, Hardwicke Stakes Tip #1

Mark Johnston’s 5-y-o has always been held in the highest regard at home, and he should be spot on fitnesswise after a narrow and expensive defeat at Haydock on his seasonal debut (well backed but rider rather caught napping when Lord North quickened clear).

Anthony Van Dyck, Hardwicke Stakes Tip #2

The 2019 Epsom Derby winner has now been beaten six times since that memorable day, but he shaped really well in the Coronation Cup last time at Newmarket (when though to need the run and ridden negatively from rear). That run should bring him on fitnesswise and he seems sure to go close under Ryan Moore.

Hardwicke Stakes Winners

An event named after the 5th Earl of Hardwicke, first established in 1879 and always a hotly contested affair for top class horses. Sir Michael Stoute has won the prize eleven times since 1986, with Crystal Ocean in 2018 his most recent visit to the winners enclosure. In 2019 Defoe landed a hefty public gamble, and he is very much one to look out for in 2020 as the Hardwicke is again his expected target.
