Queen Anne Stakes Odds
Identifying the winner of the first of the Royal Ascot races will be key for some punters as they look to maintain a victorious run throughout the five days of the festival. To do this it means picking the winner of the Queen Anne Stakes. The Queen Anne Stakes is entered by some of the most recognised Royal Ascot runners as it is only open to horses aged four or older. Therefore, many of the horses have been running for at least two years and have had time to make a name for themselves.
Tactics are not a big part of the Queen Anne Stakes as the race takes place down the straight at Royal Ascot over 1m. Therefore, a successful Royal Ascot betting tip may be a horse that has retained some of its youthful finishing speed, while also having a strong cruising speed and endurance.
Look for proven Group One winners in Queen Anne Stakes betting
One of the big common themes among recent winners of the Queen Anne Stakes is that they have all previously been successful in Group One company before arriving at Royal Ascot. Horses towards the top of the Queen Anne Stakes betting are also worth following, especially those priced at 7/1 or shorter.
Jockeys and trainers can have good Queen Anne Stakes records
Although Canford Cliffs was the most recent Queen Anne Stakes winner for the partnership of Richard Hannon and Richard Hughes, it may pay to follow the combination of trainer Saeed Bin Suroor and jockey Frankie Dettori. Both have landed the Queen Anne Stakes betting odds on seven occasions, with the most recent coming with Ramonti in 2007.
