Royal Ascot  - 17th June to 21st June, 2014

Flat aficionados will be treated to five days of sensational action on the level as some of the elite of world horse racing flock to Royal Ascot to compete in some of the most valuable prizes of the calendar and Richard Hannon's Toronado will look to kick off the five-day festival in winning fashion in the Queen Anne Stakes.

The sprinters will then take centre stage as the likes of Sole Power and Shea Shea lock horns in the King's Stand Stakes, whilst also on the opening day 2000 Guineas first two Night Of Thunder and Kingman will take each other on in the St James's Palace Stakes.

Day two will give the older horses a chance to sparkle and Arc winner Treve will be the one they all have to beat in the Prince of Wales's Stakes, whilst the Thursday will all be about The Queen's Estimate, who will bid to retain the Ascot Gold Cup.

The Coronation Stakes on day four will see the fillies aim to shine with 1000 Guineas runner-up Lightning Thunder aiming to build on that effort, whilst the Diamond Jubilee Stakes will be one of the many highlights on a super Saturday's racing that will bring the curtain down on a bumper week.

Royal Ascot History

Royal Ascot is the premier flat racing meeting in the UK each summer with five days of the most fantastic racing on offer each June at the Berkshire track. The Royal Meeting at Ascot is one of the most famous in the world from a sporting and a social point of view with the grandstands packed full of punters dressed in their best suits and dresses for each day of the meeting.

The Queen counts Royal Ascot as one of her favourite weeks of the year and there is always plenty of attention on her as she arrives each day in a horse-drawn carriage, it is one of the many traditions of the week and because of that it remains a hugely significant event on the calendar.

There is no doubting that Royal Ascot is the key event for Ascot Racecourse with around 300,000 punters flocking to the course during the week, the appetite for an event like Royal Ascot is clearly massive and the traditions set it apart from every other meeting.

People should not be fooled into thinking that Royal Ascot is just a social event though; the racing is second to none and as well as the horses from the UK and Ireland there are more and more runners heading to Berkshire from around the world than ever before. The sprinters from the USA and Australia are starting to make an impression on Royal Ascot while as Goldikova showed when winning the Queen Anne Stakes in 2010 the French horses are always strong.

Each day is as strong as the next at Royal Ascot with Group 1 action each day for punters to get stuck into, it is hard to pick a feature race of Royal Ascot but perhaps the highlight of the week is the Ascot Gold Cup. The Gold Cup is the highlight on Ladies Day at Royal Ascot and it gives the staying horses the chance to display their talent, this race has been dominated by the great Yeats in recent years who won it in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

While at the other end of the distance scale is the cavalry charge King's Stand Stakes which is the feature race on Day 1 of Royal Ascot, the horses are spread across the track in the King Stand and it makes for brilliant spectacle. The King's Stand forms part of three Group 1 races on Day 1 of Royal Ascot with the Queen Anne and St James’s Palace Stakes also a feature, these are the three races that start the entire meeting and it sets the tone for the week with plenty of star names on show.

In all there are 16 Group races during the five days of Royal Ascot and they are more than ably supported by some nice listed races throughout the week including the renewals like the Hampton Court Stakes and the Chesham Stakes among many others.

Royal Ascot has every division and class covered with the fillies and mares are given their own race in the Coronation Stakes, while the Juveniles are also covered with the Coventry Stakes always a great marker for the following season with an eye on the classics.

Every race has a significance to it which makes a huge week for racing fans and punters in particular; it is one of the biggest weeks of the year for the whole industry with terrestrial TV coverage of the event guaranteed and racing being given plenty of welcome exposure.

Royal Ascot Form and Race Cards

Royal Ascot is five days of the very highest quality action and the full race cards for each of the major races will be released as we progress through the week. The Cards will include the betting from the major online bookmakers and they of course will be hoping to have successful Royal Ascot week, while the punters will as always be more than happy to take them on.
