Ascot Betting Tips

Ascot Racecourse is based in Berkshire in England and is one of the most important tracks on the circuit as it hosts nine of the 32 Group 1’s held in the United Kingdom annually. There is a big connection between this racecourse and the Royal Family, with Windsor Castle just six miles away. Both National Hunt and flat racing is held on this dual purpose course and the Royal meeting hosted in June is the main attraction of the year. There are 26 racedays annually and the Ascot Gold Cup is the most notable race.

Ascot Betting Tips

Jumps Course

The National Hunt course is a right-handed galloping track which reopened in the 2006/2007 season after some major development work. The drainage at the time was unsatisfactory, but the problem has now been rectified. The fences at Ascot racecourse are among the toughest in the UK, therefore it is essential to be on a fluent jumper. Particularly over fences it can pay to be up with the pace.

Flat Course

The flat course at Ascot is also a right-handed round course measuring 14 furlongs in distance, with a run in of two and a half furlongs. The track consists of a straight mile course which joins the Old Mile course at Swinley Bottom. Sweeping bends lead into the straights so this is the perfect place for a proper galloper and those who are given a soft lead can be very hard to peg back. Jockey tactics are of the utmost importance depending on the pace of the race.

Ascot Draw Bias

There isn’t much of a bias at the races at Ascot between 5 and 7 furlongs, but in large field 7 furlong races, a lot of the winners come from the middle. Over the straight mile in big field handicaps, they tend to split into two groups and those drawn low have an advantage. There is also a slight advantage to be drawn low at races on the round mile course, but there is no major bias at Ascot overall.

Ascot Betting Trends

Over fences our betting tips for Ascot often follow Aidan Coleman who has ridden 9 winners from his last 39 starts – a 23% win strike rate. This has produced a level stakes profit of +£48.25. Over hurdles, Ruby Walsh has an incredible 71% win strike rate over the past three seasons with five winners from his last seven rides. In National Hunt flat races, Charlie Deutsch has had two winners from his last four rides at the track.

Aidan O’Brien has an 18% win strike rate at Ascot races on the flat over the past three seasons, producing a level stakes profit of +£34.70. Although there aren’t too many jockeys in profit at Ascot, Ryan Moore is always worth following here on the big day and he is operating at a 19% strike rate over the past three seasons. As he rides for O’Brien, the combination can be a lethal force, especially at the Royal meeting.
