Day One Betting Tips

Nap of the Day

Caspian Prince @ 5/1 - 4:10 Ascot Our top Ascot betting tip for day one of the King George Diamond Meeting features in the Rotary Club of Ascot Handicap. Trained by Michael Appleby, Caspian Prince is a 5/1 chance and given his most recent form over five furlongs, we only expect those odds to shorten. Rated 104 after two recent victories, he should face a stiffer challenge here, but if he leads from the front, it should be an easy task.

Dark Horse of The Day

Arabescato @7/1 - 2:30 Ascot

As we look further around the racecard on the opening day of the King George Meeting, it's here we've selected our dark horse in our Ascot betting tips. Trained by John Butler, it's the four-year-old Arabescato’s first trip to the Berkshire course in a race that looks a step up in class from his previous contest. He has a solid record of placing in his last three appearances, but it's worth noting that many of his career appearances have come on the all-weather, so he'll have to cope with good to firm ground here.

Longshot of the Day

Soto Sizzler @ 12/1 - 3:35 Ascot

Our longshot of the day in our Ascot betting tips comes in the form of Soto Sizzler, who sits as a 12/1 chance in the horse racing betting markets. A frequent visitor to many top-class race meetings for David Menuisier, he's placed in two races already this season at Epsom. Ryan Moore takes the saddle here at Ascot, and we believe that he's worth a punt with such an experienced jockey at the helm.

Day Two Betting Tips

Nap of the Day

Love @ 6/5 - 3:35 Ascot

When it comes to the best bet in our Ascot betting tips, we can't shy away from the feature race of the entire meeting, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Leading the horse racing betting markets is Aiden O'Brien-trained Love, who returns to Ascot to put her unbeaten record on the line once again. A victor in the Prince of Wales Stakes just over a month ago, she's been given extra weight by the handicapper this time round, but it shouldn’t provide too much of an issue if she leads from the front once again.

Dark Horse of The Day

Spirited Guest @ 6/1 - 5:10 Ascot

We're heading to the last race on the card for our Ascot betting tip in this category as we select George Margarson-trained Spirited Guest. Priced at 6/1, the five-year-old has two wins on the all-weather to his name, so he will be used to a firm racing surface. Having only run 20 days ago, it should give a solid indication of his form, and we expect him to come with a late challenge in this race.

Longshot of the Day

Like A Lion @ 10/1 - Ascot 1:15

Training partnership William Muir and Chris Grassick have previous winning form at Ascot, and that is why we've chosen their runner for our longshot of the day. A winner last time out, Like A Lion stalked the leaders before pushing clear in the final stages at Salisbury. Although still a relative novice when it comes to racing, he'll have to cope with better ground here at Ascot but should still put forward a strong account of himself.
