Ascot Racecourse Guide

Ascot in Berkshire is one of the top Flat and National Hunt tracks in the UK. For 5 days in June, it showcases Royal Ascot, with the Queen and Royal Family in attendance. The best flat horses from around the globe compete in 8 Group 1 races, with daily prize money in excess of 1 million pounds.

There are 18 days of flat racing from May to mid-October and 8 National Hunt days from the beginning of November through to the end of March. As a Grade 1 track, it attracts top-quality horses which leads to competitive fields at most meetings throughout the year.

Although right-handed and generally flat, Ascot stages high-quality national hunt racing with plenty of Cheltenham (left-handed and undulating) festival pointers and clues on show throughout the build-up to March. The fences are stiff and need plenty of jumping, fencing errors will be exposed as will the stamina limitations as Ascot takes some 'getting'.

Flat Highlights at the course: Royal Ascot (June), King George Weekend (July), The Shergar Cup (August), QIPCO British Champions Day (Oct).

National Hunt Highlights: The Christmas meeting features the Grade 1 Long Walk HurdleClarence House Chase Day in January which also features the formally sponsored OLBG Mares Hurdle won by high-quality horses like Vroum Vroum Mag in the past and there is the Ascot Chase Day in February.

There are plenty of decent handicaps over the jumps too with both the Ascot Silver Cup and the Betfair Exchange Trophy featuring on the same day as the Long Walk Hurdle in December.

  • Ascot Draw Bias

    The most profitable stall at Ascot in the win market when breaking it down to race trips is stall 4 over a trip of 1m, backing all runners in this stall over that trip over the past five years would have returned a profit of +92.42. Backing stall 7 at Ascot over a trip of 6f is the most unsuccessful stall and trip combination at Ascot returning an LSP of -67.00 over the last five years.

    Here we have the draw bias for Ascot taken into consideration races with ten or more runners, we will break down the figures by race distance, draws can be much more important over the shorter trips in which runners do not have time to find their position during the race meaning the draw is probably more important than the races over longer distances.

    • Sprints (5f to 7½f)
    • Mile (1m to 1m1½f)
    • Middle Distance (1m2f to 1m5½f)
    • Long Distance (1m6f or further)

    The following table shows a breakdown over a group of trips and shows how each position of the draw does, for example in a twelve-runner race would be Low (Stalls 1-4), Mid (Stalls 5-8) and High (Stalls 9-12), the positions will always be lowest stall number to highest.
