What's Our Kensington Palace Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?
We've been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the Golden Gates Handicap at Royal Ascot, and here's our thoughts ahead of the race:
Another hugely competitive betting market points to an incredibly open event on day 2 of Royal Ascot. Sir Michael Stoute’s 4-year old filly Lights On was impressive on the Ascot straight in a Fillies Handicap and beat a subsequent winner in Poets Lady.
There was just a short head between her and Dreamloper, who lines up in this event as well. After previously struggling in Meydan, Godolphin’s Stunning Beauty took a huge step forward last time out to beat a 103-rated rival at Doncaster.
Ffion ran well against better rivals last time out and could step up, however, at a bigger price, it may be worth backing Dalanijujo, who finished third at York against a similar calibre of competition and followed it up with a victory at Yarmouth.

On the day:
LIGHTS ON 6.10 – Ascot (6/1 each way) – Landed a 1m novice as a 2-y-o and progressed again this term, winning on return at Nottingham and digging deep to follow up over 1m here in May (coming clear with runner up). Expected to go well again.
It would be nice to think that the Golden Gates Handicap will be retained for Royal Ascot in future years, especially if the extended race format proves to be a success.
A tricky race and they go 6/1 the field ACQUITTED is most likely to go off the favourite and other leading contenders are the Godolphin pair GLOBAL STORM and YA HAYATI, John Gosden’s HYPOTHETICAL will also be popular as Frankie Dettori takes the ride. This is a mystery that may take a bit of unravelling
Keith's final choice
13:15 GLOBAL STORM 5/1 – Found himself out in front too early when winning at Newmarket last time just holding on. Will be fitter for the run and can carry the penalty to victory in this if starting his run just a little bit later.
How it fared
GLOBAL STORM 3RD – Was never in danger of getting an early lead, held up to the rear of midfield in dire conditions due to driving rain he ran on well through beaten horses to take a never nearer third.
