Royal Ascot runs from Tuesday 20th June to Saturday 24th June this year, and we have free tips for every race! Every race is shown live on ITV from Tuesday to Saturday and if you’re in Ireland, every race will be shown live on TV3..
Our expert tipsters have been working hard on our free horse racing tips as always, meaning our Royal Ascot tips will cover every single race of the week! Tips will go up around 2 days in advance – some will go up earlier, but with some horses overlapping multiple fields especially towards the end of the week the last thing we want to do is misunderstand the pace of a race or tip a Non Runner!
British Champions Series
There are a total of 8 Qipco British Champions Series races, with each offering the chance of the top horses to qualify for British Champions Day. Also held at Ascot (on the 17th of October), the idea is to race the best of the best against each other in 5 extremely valuable ‘finals’ on one of the most exciting days of British (or worldwide) racing imaginable. Not only so we have Royal Ascot Tips for every race on the site, we will have tips for every race in the entire British Champions Series!
2016 Royal Ascot Winners
Soft ground was the order of the day in 2016 with Tepin landing the first blow of the meeting to the American contingent. Caravaggio landed and impressive win in the Coventry Stakes before Profitable and Galileo Gold landed the two features of day 1.
Ribchester showed more like the dominant force we know now to start the second day before Lady Aurelia destroyed the Queen Mary field. Usherette was a smart winner of the Duke Of Cambridge and will return in 2017 in a bid to go back to back. My Dream Boat produced a shock in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes before Portage landed another winner for Godolphin in the Royal Hunt Cup.
Day 3 saw Ballydoyle dominate, landing both the Ribblesdale with Even Song and the Ascot Gold Cup with Order Of St George. The latter will again be a part of Royal Ascot in 2017 but we are taking the hot favourite on with an each way alternative in our Royal Ascot Tips.
Qemah landed the Coronation Stakes on the fourth day, a day dominated by the fillies as Quiet Reflection landed the Commonwealth Cup for the fairer sex before Sword Fighter got one back for the boys, landing the biggest price winner of the week at 33/1 in the Queen’s Vase.
The meeting finished with Churchill winning the opening contest on Saturday, giving an indication of what was to come, winning the Chesham. Henry Candy landed the feature race with Twilight Son in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, a race he will attempt to win again in 2017 with Limato.
Our Royal Ascot Tips provided a guide for all punters during Royal Ascot 2016 and all for free!
Royal Ascot History
Ascot has a huge amount of history, with the first meeting dating back to 1711. That said, the course itself looks modern and sleek thanks to a huge new redevelopment ten years ago. Royal Ascot has a similar history – indeed, the first Royal Ascot meeting was back in 1711. Sadly, we weren’t around to provide Royal Ascot Tips back then!
Royal Ascot is Europe’s best attended race meeting, and has over £5,000,000 in prize money. There’s at least one Group 1 race every day, and numerous Group 2, Group 3, Listed & Class 2 Handicap events across the week. We will have Royal Ascot Tips for every single race in 2017 with runner by runner previews for every race.
