Ascot Racecard: Your ultimate guide to Wednesday’s 7 races at Royal Ascot 2023

Day 2. Let's get it!

Dark Shift wins the Royal Hunt Cup


Ahoy-hoy! It’s time to get your posh on because Royal Ascot is here – and if you’re looking for the ultimate guide to the second day of the fiesta then you’ve come to the right place.

You’ll find all you need to know about Wednesday’s action at the famous Berkshire racecourse including the racecard, tips and best bets, how to live stream all the action as well as details of the ITV Racing schedule.

The Group 1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes tops the bill as Aidan O’Brien sends over Tattersalls Gold Cup winner Luxembourg in a bid to add another top-level success to his CV. The small-but-select field includes 2021 Epsom Derby hero Adayar and last season’s Champion Stakes scorer Bay Bridge.

The Group 2 Queen’s Vase has thrown up a number of good winners over the years including last year’s first Eldar Eldarov, who went on to win the St Leger. Gregory is unbeaten in two starts and will bid to give Frankie Dettori another Royal Ascot success.

There are Group 2 contests for the girls courtesy of the Queen Mary Stakes and Duke Of Cambridge Stakes, while a maximum field of 30 runners are set to go to post in the ultra-competitive Royal Hunt Cup.
