Royal Ascot Day 1 Odds
2.30 pm Queen Anne Stakes
The traditional curtain raiser to Royal Ascot is the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes over a mile. Palace Pier was cut to 7-4 favourite after his impressive reappearance win at Sandown and could give Frankie Dettori a flying start.
3.40 pm King’s Stand Stakes
The Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes over five furlongs was won in brilliant fashion by Battaash in 2020. He is 3-1 ante-post favourite to repeat his victory but could face tough opposition from Glass Slippers and Oxted.
4.15 pm St James’s Palace Stakes
The 2000 Guineas is often the best form guide to the Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes so it is no surprise to see Poetic Flare and Master Of The Seas dominating the market at around 4-1. They were separated by a short-head at Newmarket and a thrilling rematch could be on the cards.
Royal Ascot Day 2 Odds
2.30 pm Queen Mary Stakes
Aidan O’Brien’s Tenebrism earned quotes of 9-2 for the Queen Mary after winning impressively on her debut at Naas in March. Stable companion Contarelli Chapel also features among early Ascot tips after a wide-margin victory at the same course.
4.15 pm Prince Of Wales’s Stakes
Lord North defeated Addeybb in this race in 2020 and notched his first victory since when winning at Meydan in March. He has been installed as 9-4 favourite to become the fourth horse to win the race twice following Connaught (1969-70), Mtoto (1987-88) and Muhtarram (1994-95).
4.50 pm Royal Hunt Cup
The Royal Hunt Cup is one of the most prestigious one mile handicaps of the season with several bookmakers offering each-way down to sixth place. Last year’s race was won by Dark Vision who subsequently won a Group 2 in Germany.
Royal Ascot Day 3 Odds
3.05 pm Hampton Court Stakes
The Group 3 Hampton Court Stakes has been won by some very smart three-year-olds including Godolphin’s Hawkbill (2016) and Benbatl (2017). Both subsequently won at Group 1 level so Godolphin’s entries are certainly worth noting for your Royal Ascot day 3 tips.
3.40 pm Ribblesdale Stakes
The Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes regularly attracts fillies who ran well in the Epsom Oaks. The Gosden stable have won three of the last four renewals with Frankly Darling taking the prize last year under Frankie Dettori.
4.15 pm Ascot Gold Cup
Stradivarius was cut to 6-4 favourite to equal the four Gold Cup victories of Yeats after a smooth comeback win at Ascot. Trainer Mark Johnston will be trying his best to deny Stradivarius with promising stayers Subjectivist and Sir Ron Priestley.
Royal Ascot Day 4 Odds
3.05 pm King Edward VII Stakes
The King Edward VII Stakes could be on the agenda for colts who ran in the Epsom Derby. Japan followed this path successfully for Aidan O’Brien in 2019 and the Ballydoyle trainer is likely to be strongly represented again this season.
3.40 pm Commonwealth Cup
Ascot ante-post betting has been quiet for this Group 1 contest with bookmakers making American raider Campanelle a best-priced 7-1 favourite. Wesley Ward trained her to win the Queen Mary Stakes last season and this would appear to be the obvious target.
4.15 pm Coronation Stakes
The winners of the 1000 Guineas have a great record here and Mother Earth was made 4-1 favourite after her impressive Newmarket victory. Her possible rivals include Joseph O’Brien’s leading two-year-old Pretty Gorgeous who missed the Guineas after a minor setback.
Royal Ascot Day 5 Odds
3.40 pm Hardwicke Stakes
Entries from the Sir Michael Stoute stable will be worth noting here as the Newmarket trainer seeks to add to his remarkable eleven Hardwicke victories. His most recent success came with Crystal Ocean in 2018, ridden by Ryan Moore.
4.15 pm Diamond Jubilee Stakes
Seven-year-old Dream Of Dreams will feature in plenty of Ascot tips for this race having been beaten in a photo-finish for the past two seasons. Cape Of Good Hope (2005) is the only horse of his age group to win this race.
4.50 pm Wokingham Stakes
The Wokingham Stakes is one of the most competitive sprint handicaps of the season and has thrown up plenty of surprise results. Hey Jonesy provided an 18-1 shock last year and could bid to become the first dual winner since Selhurstparkflyer (1997-1998).
