Royal Ascot Betting

Royal Ascot is one of the most anticipated flat racing events in the UK horse racing calendar. Five days of racing normally occur during the event, with multiple Group 2 races contested each day and one Group One race which acts as the feature contest of each day. Before the racing festival begins and during all of the races, Bet UK will have all the top online sports betting odds available. So whether you’re looking to place an ante-post bet or wait until just before the race, we’ll have all the markets in our horse racing betting selection.

Betting On Royal Ascot

The Royal Ascot meeting features some of the biggest flat races in the UK horse racing calendar. Featuring top-class sprint races that range in distances from five to seven furlongs and middle-distance races, the five days of racing also offer punters the chance to catch a glimpse of the royal family.

Whether it’s the open race of the day or the feature race such as The Gold Cup, we’ll have all of the top horse racing betting and also offer each-way betting markets and forecast market so bettors will have the chance to browse a host of betting markets.

As you go to place your Royal Ascot bets, you'll notice we have the chance to place win-only bets and each-way bets, so we'll have a lot of options, including a place bet.

We'll have the options for multiple bets, so keep your eyes peeled whether you're placing your first bet or you've browsed the best races for the week.

Royal Ascot Live Streaming

Royal Ascot Top Jockey Betting

Royal Ascot is one of the top events in the calendar so being the top jockey at the event can prove to be one of the most profitable weeks in a jockey's career. When it comes to this prize for Ascot, there is one jockey that tends to stand a level above the rest and that is Ryan Moore. Moore landed on the podium in 16 races last year, winning 6 - taking his total Royal Ascot wins tally up to 79. It's inevitable that Moore takes that total to 80+ this year and overtakes the legendary Frankie Dettori in Royal Ascot wins. Last time out, Hollie Doyle also had her best festival at Ascot picking up three wins, doubling her total of victories.

A jockey that tends to perform well but just fall short is Oisin Murphy, who has won 11 races at the competition but finished in second place an agonising amount of times. Murphy won just one race at the festival last year but was the runner-up five times! It would be difficult to see Murphy not pick up a considerable amount of prize money in 2024.

Ante Post Betting for Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot, similarly to the likes of the Cheltenham Festival and Grand National, you'll be able to bet on the event almost a full year before the event. As Royal Ascot takes place in June, you'll be able to bet on the following year's event in July. Only the major races will appear at first and you'll gradually be able to bet on all the races at the event.

Betting early on an event is the best way of getting a fantastic choice for higher odds. Of course, there is the worry of the horse not racing in the event at all but with no-runner no bet markets, you'll tend to get money back where applicable, of course when you're placing these bets, make sure the no-runner no bet market is applicable and active for the bet you are placing.
