History of the King’s Stand Stakes race at Royal Ascot

This race before 1860 was called the Royal Stand Plate and was run over 2 miles, however in 1860, the course was waterlogged due to heavy rain, which meant that much of it couldn’t be raced on.  So, race organisers created a new race, the Queen’s Stand Plate – this was only 5 furlongs, as it was the only section of the course that could be raced on.  Good news for the race, as it has become one of the most important sprints at the Royal Ascot meeting.

It took up the King’s Stand Stakes name in 1901 following the death of Queen Victoria and the accession of King Edward VII.  It was given Group 1 status in 1973, however, downgraded in 1988, only to resume it’s Group 1 status in 2005.  It now forms part of the Global Sprint Challenge – which affirms it’s position as one of the world’s best sprint races.

The most successful jockey has been Lester Piggott with seven wins between 1957 and 1985.

One of the top sprinters was Sole Power who won the race in two consecutive years, in 2013 and 2014.

What’s Keith’s King’s Stand 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 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot.

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

Who is your Royal Ascot Tipster?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers. Keith lives and breathes horse racing, having begun his love of horse racing over 40 years ago with a part time job at Catterick Racecourse, as one of three fourteen year-olds looking after two jumps and a hurdle.

Over the years, Keith has been a regular at the northern tracks attending countless race meetings and building up a network of contacts, and a portfolio of systems and strategies. 

He was one of the co-founders of Free Racing Tips all the way back in 2008, and his free tips are now backed by more than seventy thousand FRT members every single day.

“Thanks Keith – It’s great to be part of an amazing group of people all after the same thing, passing on tips to beat the bookies”

Colin Parkinson, Harrow.

The FRT community love Keith’s attention to detail, knowledge of past races, and ability to pick horses...

“You offer some great tips, some fantastic outsiders tipped up as well. Most tipsters just put up favourites. Well done and keep up the good work”

John Woolley, Stockport

What did Keith Tip in the 2019 King’s Stand Stakes?

Leading Contenders:

BLUE POINT 7/2 – Won this last year. Has hit the ground running this season with three Group wins in Meydan.

MABS CROSS 5/1 – Third in last years renewal. Finished off last season with a win in the Group 1 Prix de l’Abbaye at Longchamp and resumed where she left off by winning a Newmarket Group 3 on her return.

BATAASH 6/1 – Won Group 2 races at Haydock and Goodwood either side of coming second in this last year. Ended the season with a good run behind MABS CROSS in the Prix de l’Abbaye, just missing out on a place when five of them crossed the line together.

SERGEI PROKOFIEV 10/1 – Three-year-old. Won a Listed race at Navan before finishing fourth behind MABS CROSS at Newmarket. One to keep any eye on in the betting but would probably be better sticking to his own age group for now.

 

Following the form lines, last year’s winner BLUE POINT 7/2 looks to have the measure of this field.

Royal Ascot King’s Stand Stakes Results 2019

1 Blue Point 5/2
2 Battaash 2/1F
3 Soldier’s Call 16/1
12 ran Distances: 1¼l, 1½l, nse
Time: 58.53s (fast by 0.47s)

Our Verdict:

 Keith hits his first winner of Royal Ascot 2019 with Blue Point doing the business and winning by over a length from Battaash who was the favourite.  These two horses were stand out from the rest and their pick by both Keith and our members just shows this.  Soldier’s call takes third place as an outsider at 16/1.
