Royal Ascot Betting
With many of the biggest-achieving horses of the early part of the Flat season likely to make an appearance over one of the five days of Royal Ascot, punters may feel they are in for a hard time picking winners. However, any dread should quickly be eradicated as there are trends available for most races that substantially help to narrow down the fields in the 17 Group races on offer, which includes seven Group One showdowns.
Worth backing the favourites in the Royal Ascot betting for some races
Punters have typically had the last laugh overall when looking at the Group One races at Royal Ascot in the last decade. It is the Prince of Wales Stakes where the actual market leader tends to have a particularly strong strike rate, despite So You Think’s defeat in the most recent renewal. Duke Of Marmalade and Byword are among the most recent favourites to triumph in the Prince of Wales’ Stakes.
Meanwhile, sticking to horses towards the head of the Royal Ascot betting could also be profitable in other races. Looking beyond horses prices higher than 7/1 in the Queen Anne Stakes could prove a waste of time, especially with Frankel in the field, while horses at 8/1 or shorter should be the leading focus in the King’s Stand Stakes, the St James’ Palace Stakes and the Coronation Stakes.
Look where horses are trained in Royal Ascot betting
In certain races it pays to avoid horses trained in certain countries, English-trained horses rarely win the Ascot Gold Cup, while horses from Ireland struggle in the King’s Stand Stakes. However, the Irish are far more successful in the Ascot Gold Cup most notably because of Aidan O’Brien’s dominance with Yeats and now potentially Fame And Glory.
