Ascot racecard: Runners and riders for Wednesday’s races at Royal Ascot 2022

All you need to know about the second day of Royal Ascot 2022!


The first £1m race of the meeting is the feature on the second day of Royal Ascot 2022 – and you’ve come to the right place to swot up on all the renewals.

Bay Bridge has never run in a Group 1 contest but Sir Michael Stoute’s progressive four-year-old is the hot favourite to secure the honours in the ultra-lucrative Prince Of Wales’s Stakes. Japanese runner Shahryar and French mare Grand Glory add a touch of international flair while State Of Rest and 2020 winner Lord North also go to post.


Sun Chariot Stakes winner Saffron Beach is set to face last year’s 1000 Guineas heroine Mother Earth and recent Epsom Group 3 winner Bashkirova in the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes. The Queen Mary Stakes and Queen’s Vase provide Group 2 action.

If big-field handicaps are your sort of thing then you won’t want to miss the Royal Hunt Cup at 5pm where Paddy’s paying a whopping 7 places instead of 4.
