What's Keith's Silver Royal Hunt Cup 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 Silver Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

Consolation race for the Royal Hunt Cup later on the card. There are 24 runners declared and it will be a veritable cavalry charge. Being a new race we need to rely heavily on the parent race but with the lower framing of the race, highest OR 13lb below the Royal Hunt Cup, things are certain to pan out differently. One thing this race may do is give jockeys an indication of which part of the track is favoured.

Leading contenders include OUZO, MAYDANNY, PRECEDENTIAL, ALTERNATIVE FACT and NICHLAUS. I am a long way to deciding which of the two dozen I favour.

Keith's final choice

13:15 ZHUI FENG 20/1 each way – Absolute cavalry charge to kick off the day and it will be no surprise if there is a big odds winner. ZHUI FENG is looking well handicapped on his best form and from his high draw, he could grab the rail and make all.

How it fared

I nailed the draw in the first and ZHUI FENG lead as expected but was one of the first to be off the bridle. He soon faded out of contention.

What our member's tipped in the Silver Royal Hunt Cup

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 what our member's tipped:

It’s a battle between Ryan Moore and Jim Crowley here, but it’s Ryan Moore on Ouzo that just about gets the nod here to kick things off on Day Two of Royal Ascot with 27% of your votes. Maydanny a close second with 23.5% of the selections.
Brian Epstein is also worth a mention after some early support.
