What is the Royal Hunt Cup? 

The Royal Hunt Cup is a handicap race run on day two of Royal Ascot and is one of the biggest betting heats of the entire five-day meeting.

First run in 1843, the Royal Hunt Cup is contested on the straight course at the Berkshire venue and with field in excess of 25 horses bidding for glory then it can produce some fascinating finishes with only the strongest coming out on top. Often you see groups splitting away from the main body of runners, where it's paramount to be on the pace, but all-in-all it serves up one of the finest spectacles of the entire week.

What happened in the 2019 Royal Hunt Cup? 

A monster field of 28 runners went to post for the 2019 Royal Hunt Cup and it was the Charles Hills-trained Afaak that fought off a late challenge from David Barron's Clon Coulis to take victory in the competitive handicap. The pair pulled comfortably clear of Raising Sand in third and Stylehunter in fourth with Afaak sprinting clear a furlong from home to pull out a significant lead. However, Clon Coulis came out of the pack and stormed home, but was just unable to get his head in front as they crossed the line together.
