Common Royal Ascot Betting Terms
Ante post Betting - Ante post betting is very common in horse racing betting markets, particularly ahead of big races. Ante post betting is when you bet on a race before the official racecard has been confirmed. To read more about Ante Post betting, check out our betting guides
Rule 4 - Rule 4 comes into place when a horse has to pull out of a race at the last minute after you have already placed your bet. If a horse pulls out, your horse has a better chance of winning against a smaller field, so the odds of a winner will automatically decrease from the odds you placed your bet at. You can find more information about Rule 4 with Bet UK's Rule 4 Betting Guide.
Each Way - An Each Way bet is one of the most popular types of bets when it comes to horse racing, and Royal Ascot is no different. Placing each-way bets allows you to still see a return on your bet, even if your horse doesn't win. Each race has a set number of 'places' that will still pay out a reduced win as a result if you place an Each Way bet. Looking to find out more about Each Way betting? Check out our each way betting guide
Accumulator - An accumulator is formed when you bet on a number of different races to form one larger bet. For example, placing a bet on the 1:15, 1:50, 2:25, and 3:10 races will form an accumulator. This will add all of the odds of the individual winners together to calculate one figure. In order for your accumulator to win, each of your choices will have to win.

Top Jockeys & Trainers At Royal Ascot
If Ruby Walsh is the king of the Cheltenham Festival, then Ryan Moore holds the crown for Royal Ascot. For the last five years, Moore has been the top jockey at Ascot, and no other rider can boast as many wins as he can.
Like Ryan Moore, in recent years, Aiden O'Brien has dominated Ascot Races. Only John Gosden and Mark Johnston have won more races at Ascot, although both have entered more than 100 more horses than O'Brien. His winning percentage of 14.4% is almost unrivaled by trainers that have raced a similar amount of horses, so it would be no surprise if he won top trainer in 2022. As we already mentioned, when working with Ryan Moore, the pair has seen success constantly throughout the last five years.
Each trainer has a favoured jockey, and for John Gosden, that's Frankie Dettori. Gosden is the most successful trainer of all time at Ascot Racecourse, with 68 wins from 433 runs. That's a win percentage of 15.7%, the best winning percentage of anyone with over 125 runs. He has always been successful, but he has failed to win top trainer since the modern-day domination of O'Brien and Moore.
