Who To Follow On Day Two Of Royal Ascot

Horse To Follow - Juan Elcano

Kevin Ryan does not seem to have that many runners heading to royal meeting this week and one of his best chances seems to be Juan Elcano.

The three year old son of Frankel looked a smart two year old winning on heavy ground on his debut and then went on to place in the Group Two Superlative Stakes.

Ryan believes he will be better as a three year old and on his seasonal debut finished a solid fifth in the 2000 Guineas, not finishing to far behind the leaders.

He steps up to 1 mile 2 furlongs today and from the way he ran at Newmarket it suggested he will improve for the extra distance.

Trainer To Follow - William Knight

William Knight is a trainer that may fly under the radar at the bigger meetings but has been in fine form in the lead up to Royal ascot.

So far since the resumption of racing he has been running at a strike rate of 21.43% having has three winners from 14 runners.

At the Berkshire track on Wednesday he only sends one runner and it comes in the first race of the day with Sir Busker who looks to have a live chance if converting his all weather win on his seasonal debut to turf.

The gelding is normally a consistent runner with wins on the turf over six and seven furlongs in the past, now stepping up to a mile makes him very appealing.

Jockey To Follow - Andrea Atzeni

Leading rider Andrea Atzeni has some classy rides on day two of the Royal Ascot festival and we believe he will pay to follow holding a 14% strike rate at the track for the last 12 months.

Tomorrow, although having a handful of rides he has two big ones on Juan Elcano in the Hampton Court Stakes and Fujaira Prince in the lucky last.

Juan Elcano is a three year old son of Frankel looked a smart two year old winning on heavy ground on his debut and then went on to place in the Group Two Superlative Stakes.

Fujaira Prince is a six year old has always been consistent, especially in these types of races and was last seen when finishing a strong third at this meeting last season.

He is very lightly raced for his age and having won on good to soft ground in the past should see him handle the surface.
