2023 Royal Ascot Race Schedule & Info

Royal Ascot betting opportunities come in the form of 19 Group races during the five-day festival with at least one Group One race staged each day.

The showpiece Ascot Gold Cup is staged on the Thursday of the Ascot Festival which is also the fabled Royal Ascot ‘Ladies Day’.

But if level-weight races of the highest calibre are not your thing fear not. Royal Ascot betting opportunities include some big-field handicaps such as the Wokingham, Royal Hunt Cup and Britannia Stakes.

Royal Ascot Betting Markets, Ante Post & Special Bets

It is very unlikely any Royal Ascot race will feature less than eight runners so each-way punters will be happy in the knowledge their bets will be ‘first three’ and in some cases ‘first four’ betting terms.

As the festival approaches Royal Ascot odds will become available on ‘Top Royal Ascot Trainer’, which has been won by Aidan O’Brien eight times before, ‘Top Royal Ascot Jockey’ and even ‘Top Royal Ascot Owner’.

For now you will have to make do with Royal Ascot betting odds 2020 with ante-post markets. As we know ante-post betting comes with a caveat that your stakes will be lost should your selection not run in the race you stipulated.

On the upside, if your horse does run, you are pretty sure to receive a price far better than that which will be listed in the Royal Ascot results.

Royal Ascot Results 2022

Baaeed kicked off Royal Ascot 2022 in style, with a comfortable, if a little more workmanlike than expected, win in the Queen Anne Stakes.

Later the same day, Aussie sprinter Nature Strip grabbed the headlines, with a dominating win in the King Stand Stakes.

On day two, the headlines were written by State Of Rest, who got the better of Bay Bridge in the Prince Of Wales’ Stakes.

Thursday was all about the Gold Cup, and in a thrilling finish, Kyprios for Aidan O’Brien, got the better of Mojo Star and Stradivarius, ending hopes of another fairytale Gold Cup for the Gosden runner.

Earlier on that day, The Ridler caused a 50/1 shock in the Norfolk, for the Northern team of Paul Hanagan and Richard Fahey.

Inspiral took Friday’s Coronation Stakes, winning the feature on that day by more than four lengths with Frankie Dettori in the saddle.

It was Perfect Power who took the Commonwealth Cup, with the drop back to sprinting really helping this horse come home strongly.

On the final day of the meeting, Naval Crown caused a shock in the Diamond Jubilee, while Broome was not for catching in the Hardwicke Stakes, taking that prize back home to Ireland.
