King’s Stand Stakes Tips 2013: Better Odds
These three are not out of the running by any stretch of the imagination. You could justifiably add Spirit Quartz and 2011 winner Prohibit to this group, but we favour this trio of horses who could easily upset the odds for the 2013 King’s Stand Stakes. Worth a few quid on for a place at least, particularly Medicean Man at big odds:
|1- Pearl Secret||Best odds at:||Bet365|
|2- Mince||Best odds at:||BetVictor|
|3- Medicean Man||Best odds at:||Bet365|
King’s Stand Stakes Tips 2013: Outsiders with a Chance
We think that the likes of Taajub, Stepper Point and Doc Hay are a step too far from having a real shot at the King’s Stand Stakes this year, but these three definitely have some realistic chance of springing a shock, and good to have a bet on if you like to have a wildcard in the pack. You will get great odds on any of these – for good reason – but stranger things have happened.

King’s Stand Stakes Tips 2013 – Further Information
Held on the opening day of Royal Ascot, the King’s Stand Stakes is a Group One race which dates back to 1860, although the current name didn’t appear until 1901 when King Edward VII ascended the throne. In 2005, the King’s Stand Stakes became part of the international race series, the Global Sprint Challenge. It is now the fourth leg of the series, and is followed by the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
Lester Piggott is the leading jockey for the King’s Stand Stakes with seven wins stretching from 1957 (Right Boy) to 1985 (Never So Bold).
Older horses have done well in this race in recent years, with the only three-year-olds to win since 2000 being Equiano in 2008 and Dominica in 2002. In 2012, Little Bridge grabbed glory with jockey Zac Purton. In 2011, 2013 runner Prohibit took the race. Prohibit features in the King’s Stand Stakes Tips 2013 review above but at the age of 8 it is hard to see the Gelding winning again.
South African runner Shea Shea is leading the southern hemisphere challenge for the title this year, alongside Australia’s Shamexpress.
This King’s Stand Stakes Tips 2013 as part of the Royal Ascot Betting Odds review concludes here. All the very best of luck with your Tuesday race selections.
