Royal Ascot 2020 Betting Preview

royal ascot

The biggest flat racing meeting of the year is Royal Ascot, and it is just around the corner. The cream of the crop, not only from the UK and Ireland, but from the world of horse racing all descend on the venue for five thrilling days of action. This is the big week for flat racing fans, and I’m sure you are already excited.

Royal Ascot 2020 Dates & TV Coverage

The meeting will once again run from Tuesday to Saturday inclusive and this year the dates for the meeting are Tuesday 18th June until Saturday 22nd June. The great news for those in the UK wanting to catch the action is that every single one of the six races on all five of the days will be covered live on ITV. Alongside this, for further action from the meeting, the rights to Ascot have transferred over to Sky Sports Racing, so that is the place to be for wall to wall Royal Ascot this year.

Favourites to Look Out For

The big talking horse of the week could well be Stradivarius, who will run in the Ascot Gold Cup on Thursday afternoon. He won the £1 million stayers bonus last season, which included winning this race and he is back for more this season. He took the Yorkshire Cup in great style last time out, just like he did last year and he is seen as the banker of the meeting for many people.

Elsewhere, it may pay to look at the Irish runners coming across for the meeting, in particular, those from the Aidan O’Brien yard. He has won three of the four English classics so far this season, proving once again that he is the man for the big meetings.

Remarkably, of the 22 races currently priced up by the bookmakers, O’Brien has the favourite in 10 of those. If they have got it right then this is going to be a fantastic week for both O’Brien and his stable jockey Ryan Moore, who will be looking to emulate the nine winners he had at the meeting back in 2015.
