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.

Flat: There is no definitive track advantage on the straight or round courses used for Royal Ascot, however, because we cannot advise a low, middle or high number stall that does not mean there Is not an advantage, it just varies from meeting to meeting or day-to-day. You tend to find on the straight course a bias towards low middle or high numbers, it’s just no one truly knows until the 1st race has been run. The going will obviously have an effect.
If you want the most profitable stall at Royal Ascot then you need to look at races over 6f and focus on stall 15 as this has produced an LSP of +60.17 over the last five years. Backing stall 2 at Royal Ascot over a trip of 1m is the most unsuccessful stall and trip combination at Royal Ascot returning an LSP of -58.25 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.
The following table shows a breakdown over a group of trips and shows how each position of the draw does, this 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
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:
• Leading Trainer - Charlie Appleby 2 winners from 4 runners
• Leading Jockey - Jim Crowley 2 winners and 2 places from 9 rides
• Leading Trainer - Aidan O'Brien 3 winners and 7 places from 22 runners
• Leading Jockey - Frankie Dettori 4 winners and 5 places from 18 rides
• Leading Trainer - Aidan O'Brien 7 winners and 3 places from 19 runners
• Leading Jockey - Frankie Dettori 5 winners and 1 place from 18 rides
• Leading Trainer - Clive Cox 1 winner and 1 place from 6 runners
• Leading Jockey - Frankie Dettori 1 winner and 2 places from 4 rides
• Leading Trainer - James Fanshawe 2 winners and 3 places from 12 runners
• Leading Jockey - Ryan Moore 2 winners and 4 places from 15 rides
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 2011-2020 - 293 bets for 52 wins (18% strike rate) and an LSP of -33.23
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 11 of his 40 rides (28%) for an LSP of +23.87 (+42.51 BSP).
His Group 1 rides are the source of most of the loss with an LSP of -24.54 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 +12.02 (+20.05 BSP).
Also, consider the horse's position in the odds market too, when his rides have been in the first five of the market his LSP of +11.77 (22% strike rate) whilst those 6th or worse and he is 1-60 (-45).
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 may not have the best of records at Royal Ascot, since 2008 he has ridden 200 runners and produced just 13 winners (6%) for an LSP of -59.62.
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 200 rides, he has placed on a total of 56 of those, that is a 28% place strike rate, now backing all his rides in 5+ runner fields eachway still would have produced a loss (-16.19).
However, had you backed all 200 of those on the Betfair exchange to place at SP, then the LSP would have been a very impressive +98.44! That is a profit of £984.40 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 13 from 77 for an LSP of -32.66 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 123 Rides, 43 Places (35%), LSP of +131.10 (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 9 seasons have all been profitable!

Following Wesley Ward would have returned a profit here at Royal Ascot with an LSP of +6.00 and their nine winners have them at the head of the profitable trainers' list. A P O'Brien does lead the trainers' list overall with forty-three winners but shows an overall loss. If you are more of an eachway player then you may want to know which trainer is best to follow at Royal Ascot and that would be C G Cox who shows the best eachway LSP which is +75.00 thanks to their seventeen placings (seven winners). The trainer with the worst record at Royal Ascot based on LSP is Richard Hannon (Jnr) who has only a 4% strike rate with six winners from one hundred sixty-nine runners which have returned an LSP of -127.20.
Ryan Moore is the leading jockey here at Royal Ascot with fifty-two winners but you would have recorded a loss if you backed all of their rides whilst following William Buick would have returned the most winners (twenty-four) from a profitable jockey. When looking at jockeys and looking for some eachway value at Royal Ascot, then the jockey who shows the best eachway profit is Adam Kirby, that LSP is +59.83 which has been accumulated by a total of twenty-four placings which includes nine winners. A total of two winners from one hundred seventeen rides at Royal Ascot has Paul Hanagan at the wrong end of the jockeys' list with their 2% strike rate and worst LSP of -108.75.
