What's Keith's King George V Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot 2020?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers.  He's been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

Stats of note: All of the last twelve winners carried 9st 1lb or less. Draw – Nine of the last twelve winners have been drawn in between stalls 8 and 18.

There are 18 declared for this middle distance handicap and it is a good opportunity to pick up a winner at a double-figure price, there are plenty of opportunities to pick up a loser too. Hughie Morrison's KIPPS heads the market but many of these merit consideration and life is too short to list them all.

Keith's final choice

14:25 BODYLINE 10/1 each way – Stayed on well at Yarmouth on reappearance and this extra two furlongs should play to his strengths.

How it fared

BODYLINE – Held up at the rear, made good progress late on staying on into sixth.

To be certain of getting Keith's final thoughts on every Royal Ascot race, make sure you have joined the FRT VIP Club.

This is what Keith said about the 2019 King George V Stakes:

 

Keith’s selection for the King George V Stakes was SINJAARI, a slim each way chance at 6/1 when advised.

What our members tipped in the King George V 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.  Our member's picks for the King George V Stakes:

It’s Kipps that pips it here with 18.5% of the selections and Bright Melody in 2nd place with 17%. The John Gosden trained To Nathaniel had a fair bit of early support, so worth a mention as an Each Way option if you fancy.

Neck and neck in the final race between Sir Ron Priestley and Constantinople with 16.9% of the vote apiece.  Sinjaari the nearest contender.
