Royal Ascot Day Two Preview (Wed 21st June)

Day Two at Royal Ascot ,with the feature race the group one Prince Of Wales stakes ,though going concentrate on one supporting races the G3 Jersey Stakes at 2.30

20 Runners declared for G3 Jersey Stakes at 2.30 on ground described as Good/firm .The three main contenders are Daban ,Dream Castle & Le Brivido .

DABAN : Three-year-old Filly,winning 2 out 3 ,including winning the G3 Nell Gwyn at Newmarket in April ,though produced career best effort last time when finishing an excellent 2 lengh third behind Winter in 1000 guineas.Should go well returning to this shorter trip.

DREAM CASTLE :Three-year-old colt,winning 1 out 3 ,also finished good second in G3 Greenham Stakes behind Barney Roy and finished fair fifth of 10 in 2000 guineas.That form has taken timely boost ,with Barney Roy and Lancaster Bomber finishing first & second in Tuesday's St James Palace Stakes.The return to 7 furlongs will also suit .

LE BRIVIDO : Three-year-old French colt , winning 2 out 3 ,including winning twice at Chantilly ,though ran his best race ,when finishing short head second in French 2000 Guineas at Deauville on soft ground .Looks interesting contender,though unproven on fast ground .

 VERDICT : Le Brivido will be popular after finishing close second in French 2000 guineas  ,though that was on soft ground,there has to be big question mark repeating that form on this  lightning quick ground .

DREAM CASTLE looks the one to beat returning to group three company, over this 7 furlong trip.The form of his 2L second to Barney Roy in Greenham stakes, and 3L fifth of 10 in 2000 Guineas looks very decent form at this level .Odds around 4-1 look solid value .
