What’s Keith’s Hardwicke Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot 2020?

With the uncertainty of whether this race will be run due to the current coronavirus situation in the UK, it’s hard to predict selections for the upcoming Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.

As soon as the picture is clearer, we will post Keith’s tips for the Hardwicke Stakes here.

John Woolley, Stockport

What did Keith Tip in the 2019 Hardwicke Stakes?

This is what Keith said about the 2019 Hardwicke Stakes:

Leading Contenders
CRYSTAL OCEAN 6/4 – Very classy. Has never finished out of the frame in thirteen starts. Won this race last year.
ENABLE 6/1 – Every superlative known to man has been used to describe this superstar of the turf. She has won eight of her nine races including the Oaks, a King George VI AND Queen Elizabeth Stakes, two Arcs and a Breeders Cup.
SOUTHERN FRANCE 6/1 – Third in last years St Leger and took a significant step forward when runner up to STRADIVARIOUS at York. May find this trip a little on the sharp side.
MASAR 6/1 – Not seen since winning last year’s Derby , but is reportedly working well at home. Will need to be at his best if all of these turn up for the race.

This is what Keith tipped at Ante Post: Last years winner CRYSTAL OCEAN has been installed favourite and could well win again but despite his amazing record he has always been found wanting against top class opposition. I am hoping that ENABLE 6/1 will take up this engagement and she is the one for me.

 

On the day Keith looked for value and tipped a 14/1 each way shout in the form of SANDS OF MALI

What our members tipped in the 2019 Hardwicke Stakes

Each day we ask our members to select their Pick 6, their NAP for each race of the day.  We then collate all the picks, and present the top selections to our VIP members.  Here’s how it went for the Hardwicke Stakes 2019:

Frankie Dettori’s ride Lah Ti Dar is now a non runner and a fair bit of support for it with 21.4%.  It’s between Defoe and Masar now with Defoe just edging it with 24% of the selections.

Royal Ascot Hardwicke Stakes Results 2019

1 Defoe 11/4F
2 Nagano Gold 25/1
3 Mirage Dancer 6/1
8 ran NR: Lah Ti Dar Distances: ½l, 1l, 3l
Time: 2m 31.09s (slow by 2.59s)

Our Verdict

The gamble for Keith didn’t pay off, it’s always tricky when you go against the favourite to find value. Our members chose the favourite and the winner DEFOE though 11/4 is quite short, Nagano Gold nearly managed to beat the favourite, and was beaten by just half a length.
