Tip For Royal Ascot’s Royal Hunt Cup On Wednesday: Zhui Feng Can Defy Top Weight To Win Back-to-back Royal Hunt Cup’s
Zhui Feng – 20-1 with Paddy Power, Wednesday 20th June
With a maximum field of 30 runners almost certainly guaranteed to contest Royal Ascot’s Hunt Cup on Wednesday the one mile handicap looks sure to prove one of the greatest puzzles for punters during the five days of the royal extravaganza. But one horse who seems to reserve his best for the Berkshire course is the Amanda Perrett-trained Zhui Feng, winner of the race 12 months ago.

Heading the weights on 9st 10lb the five-year-old son of Invincible Spirit made all of the running up the stands side last year, holding the late challenge of Blair House in the closing stages without much trouble and an 8lb rise on this occasion may not stop the mount of Pat Dobbs recording back-to-back victories, becoming only the second to do so, the other being Master Vote in 1947/48.

Just touched off by jockey Hayley Turner and Ripp Orf on his seasonal reappearance in Ascot’s Victoria Cup last month. Zhui Feng was trying to concede 23lb to that horse in the seven furlong twenty seven-runner handicap, something which should not be required of the entire on Wednesday as the bottom weight is likely to be in the region of 8st 12lb or 8st 13lb. Providing Zhui Feng is handed a favourable draw close to either rail the game handicapper could take plenty of pegging back.
"He just liked weaving through them" says Hayley Turner as Rip Orf takes Victoria Cup at Ascot. Watch a full replay of that race plus the Carey Group Buckhounds Stakes.https://t.co/t7ymPRFxtw pic.twitter.com/8t0SlR6Skt— Racing UK (@Racing_UK) May 12, 2018
