  • Tips From The Racecourse for Royal Ascot 

    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 in attendance. The best flat horses compete in 8 Group 1 races, with daily prize money in excess of 1 million pounds. Favourites can be vulnerable due to the size of the fields, especially on the flat. As a Grade 1 track, it attracts the best horses, which leads to competitive fields at most of the meetings.

  • Tips on Course Bias for Royal Ascot 

    With an LSP of +60.17, the most successful stall at Royal Ascot is stall 15 when backing runners over a trip of 6f over the last five years. For the least profitable stall at Royal Ascot, you need to look at races over 1m and focus on stall 2 as this has produced an LSP of -59.25 over the last five years.

    Here we have the draw bias for Royal 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)

    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.

  • Royal Ascot Tips - The Five Big Races

    The following owners, trainers and jockeys have enjoyed the most wins in the five big Group 1 races on each day of Royal Ascot over the past twenty years:

    Day 1 – Kings Stand Stakes

    • Leading Trainer - Charlie Appleby 2 winners from 4 runners

    • Leading Jockey - Jim Crowley 2 winners and 2 places from 10 rides

    Day 2 – Prince Of Wales’s Stakes

    • Leading Trainer - Aidan O'Brien 4 winners and 7 places from 23 runners

    • Leading Jockey - Frankie Dettori 3 winners and 5 places from 17 rides

    Day 3 – Gold Cup

    • Leading Trainer - Aidan O'Brien 7 winners and 3 places from 22 runners

    • Leading Jockey - Frankie Dettori 5 winners and 1 place from 18 rides

    Day 4 – Commonwealth Cup

    • Leading Trainer - Wesley A Ward 1 winner and 1 place from 4 runners

    • Leading Jockey - Frankie Dettori 2 winner and 2 places from 5 rides

    Day 5 – Diamond Jubilee Stakes

    • Leading Trainer - James Fanshawe 2 winners and 3 places from 12 runners

    • Leading Jockey - Ryan Moore 3 winners and 4 places from 16 rides

  • Royal Ascot Tips Jockey Analysis

    OLBG Member Teddy T has unearthed some great jockey stats for Royal Ascot particularly focused on Ryan Moore.

    At face value, those odds look pretty appealing considering Moore’s impressive record but is there a way of increasing the profit level by honing in on the areas where Moore particularly excels?

    The basic facts for Ryan Moore’s rides over the last ten years at Royal Ascot look like this:

    Ryan Moore at Royal Ascot 2012-2021 - 296 bets for 53 wins (18% strike rate) and an LSP of -33.39

    Just backing Moore’s mounts blind in each of the last ten years would only have returned a profit twice so obviously we need to dig deeper.

    Watch out when he teams up with Aidan O'Brien with a 2yo runners, he has won on 10 of his 44 rides (23%) for an LSP of +13.28 (+28.24 BSP).

    His Group 1 rides are the source of most of the loss with an LSP of -19.44 for 71 Group 1 rides.

    One interesting factor is if you look at the longer trips, for rides over 1m4f or further he shows an LSP of +14.35 (+22.80 BSP).

    Also, consider the horse's position in the odds market too, when his rides have been in the first three of the market his LSP of +26.61 (26% strike rate) whilst those 4th or worse and he is 5-114 (-60.00).

    You can read more on the forum thread for Royal Ascot Jockey tips where other members have joined in with further stats, tips and trends around the jockeys past performances at Royal Ascot.

  • Jamie Spencer at Royal Ascot

    Jamie Spencer may not have the best of records at Royal Ascot, since 2008 he has ridden 214 runners and produced just 13 winners (6%) for an LSP of -73.62.

    So why mention him, I hear you say? Well, there is actually a way in which he has produced a steady profit year after year and that is backing his runners to place.

    From his 214 rides, he has placed on a total of 60 of those, that is a 28% place strike rate, now backing all his rides eachway still would have produced a loss (-17.24).

    However, had you backed all 2014 of those on the Betfair exchange to place at SP, then the LSP would have been a very impressive +110.35! That is a profit of £1,103 if you had placed £10 on each!

    This can be improved upon too, his rides over further than a mile do not produce a lot of placings, only 14 from 82 for an LSP of -29.78 so you could rule those ones out.

    So if you focused on Jamie Spencer to place over no further than one mile, then since 2008 the numbers are 132 Rides, 46 Places (35%), LSP of +140.13 (BSP) which is very good!

    As you can see on this forum thread he has made a profit every year since 2008 with the exception of 2010 meaning the last 10 seasons have all been profitable!

    • Read the daily horse racing discussion on the forum. 
    • Check going and weather updates from the clerk of the course. 
    • Check stall placement and any early track bias. 
    • Look to the top trainers of the best-bred horses, note offspring of Frankel, Peintre Celebre, Scat Daddy.
    • Check trainers who have had previous race success in a specific race.  Aidan O’Brien has won the St James Palace stakes on 6 occasions in the last 20 years, plus had numerous placed horses, it seems to be a race he targets with his Irish Guineas horses.   
    • Check previous handicap weight bands of winners of specific races, if the bulk of winners of a specific race come from the most common weight band, look deeper into those runners.

  • Royal Ascot Trainer & Jockey Statistics

    Who are the best flat jockeys and trainers to bet on at Royal Ascot?

    A P O'Brien is the leading trainer here at Royal Ascot with forty-one winners but you would have recorded a loss if you backed all of their runners whilst following J H M Gosden would have returned the most winners (thirty-two) from a profitable trainer.
