Royal Ascot Day 2: The Royal Hunt Cup Dosage & Trends Analysis

Can Camelot bounce back to form?

Day 2 of Royal Ascot 2013 and plenty more high octane action for us all. Today I’m diving head first into the 30 runners Royal Hunt Cup  and ripping it apart with my unique Dosage & Trends analysis.

Before I lavish you with the latest FREE guide I just want to take a look back at how the shortlist fared in yesterday race in focus; The King’s Stand Stakes.

This was the shortlist included within the guide…

SWISS SPIRIT – 8th at 13/2

SOLE POWER – 1st at 8/1

SHEA SHEA – 2nd at 11/4


KINGSGATE NATIVE – 16th at 16/1

Safe to say I’m pretty happy with how those figures panned out.

Johnny Murtagh produced Sole Power fast and late and floored the fav in the shadow of the post, he really is a master of these sprint contests at the track.

Yesterday you guys also played your part by successfully voting DAWN APPROACH as the most likely winner of the St James’s Palace Stakes. And what a fantastic race it was as well, wasn’t it?

Today I want YOUR opinion on the sole Grade 1 contest on the card…


Now onto my race in focus for the day.

The Royal Hunt Cup is a full-on cavalry charge down the Ascot 8f straight track. With 30 runners the draw can be extremely important. From my figures it looks like the pace is middle to high but again it isn’t straightforward and if they all converge into the middle, which is a possibility, then that would bring the lower numbers into play.

It is all in today’s guide, which you can download, for free, from the link below…

As always you don’t have to side with me here, there is plenty of analysis in the guide that you can utilize into your own thoughts and workings.

Happy Royal Ascot punting, however you decide to put the guide to use.

  1. You are confusing me Ben. You say stiring ballard is likelyto get a breakneck pace here, yet you say there is no Front Runner – so who will destroy their chances by making a breakneck pace?

    • Hi Ian

      No out and out front-runner so it isn’t 100% clear where the pace will generate from but a 30 runner straight race will, by its nature, produce a fast pace. Unfortunately we are taking a bit of a stab at where it is actually going to come from. That’s how I read it anyway.

      Cheers – Ben (BDH)

    • Hi Stu

      It’s one of those races where you could work on it for hours and still be wide of the mark. Still you gotta put the work in. Hopefully the figures will hold up.

      Cheers – Ben (BDH)

  2. Agree with your analysis Ben, plus your pick is in foal too, which is always a positive for me. Punted accordingly

    • Hi Peter

      Good info there. That does seem to make a mare run ‘better’ (when in foal), not sure why but often you will hear that.

      Bets of luck – Ben (BDH)
