Horse Racing: Royal Ascot 2011 Day Two Preview

The second day of Royal Ascot 2011 takes place on Wednesday 15th June 2011, and will feature another six races of the highest calibre: the day will see one Group 1 race, two Group 2 events, a Group 3 race as well as a heritage handicap and a Listed race.

Racing will begin at 14:30 BST when a field of ten runners will line up for the 7 furlong Group 3 Jersey Stakes.

The feature race of the day is the Group 1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes over 1m2f, which will see seven high-quality four, five and six year olds compete for winner’s prize money of just over GBP £227,000. Aiden O’Briens ever-impressive son of High Chapparal, So You Think looks the likely winner of that marquee race, though the colt is sure to start a short-odds favourite. The Prince of Wales’s Stakes takes place at 15:45 BST.

The Official Going at Royal Ascot is Good (Good to Soft in places), and the weather forecast suggests it is set to be cloudier than the opening day on Tuesday, but it is expected to remain dry throughout Wednesday, so no changes in Going are anticipated.
