Royal Ascot 2021 Horse Racing Preview

Horse Racing Betting

Royal Ascot Betting 2021 is firmly on the radar this week as the famous horse racing festival gets its annual outing.

It is one of the UK’s top Festivals and arguably the pinnacle of the flat season, stacked with Group 1 fixtures across the five days.

Even more exciting is that the famous venue is being opened to a limited number of spectators across the five days.

Here is our Royal Ascot betting guide for 2021 as we preview the brilliant Festival and pick out some selections for the big races.

Royal Ascot Racing Odds Tuesday, June 15th 2021

Day One of Royal Ascot betting on Tuesday has three Group 1 fixtures to look at. There is some fantastic horse racing betting ahead and it all kicks off with The Queen Anne Stakes.

The other two top-tier fixtures for Tuesday are The King’s Stand and The St James’s Palace Stakes.

Let’s take a look at some Royal Ascot racing tips for those:

Key Facts – Royal Ascot Tuesday, June 15th

  • 2:30 The Queen Anne Stakes (Group 1)
  • 3:05 The Coventry Stakes (Group 2)
  • 3:40 The King’s Stand Stakes (Group 1)
  • 4:20 The St James’s Palace Stakes (Group 1)
  • 5.00 The Ascot Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2) (0-100)
  • 5.35 The Wolferton Stakes (Listed)
  • 6:10 The Copper Horse Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)


The Queen Anne Stakes

It is the exciting PALACE PIER who is the current 4/9 odds-on favourite for this one* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

He has been in brilliant form, winning both efforts this year. The course and distance winner is expected to produce another strong run at the venue.

The Coventry Stakes

There are plenty of claims in this juvenile contest with KAUFYMAKER the current 3/1 favourite* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

But there are strong claims as well from the likes of GISBURN and MASSETO who are both distance winners. Aiden O’Brien’s THE ACROPOLIS can’t be dismissed either.

The St James’s Palace Stakes

Hopefully we will see a cracking duel develop between POETIC FLARE and MOSTAHDAF in this one.

It is the former who is the current 7/2 favourite* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral). But Mostahdaf certainly brings plenty of appeal having made it three wins from three in his short career.

Bet at Coral

Our betting prediction:
Stradivarius – Gold Cup

Royal Ascot Betting Preview – Wednesday, June 16th

The waters are slightly calmer for the second day of Royal Ascot 2021. But none less exciting.

There is just the one Group1 fixture of the day, which is the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.

But other real highlights are happening with The Queen’s Vase and The Duke of Cambridge Stakes of particular interest.


Key Facts – Royal Ascot 2021 Wednesday, June 16th

  • 2.30 The Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2)
  • 3:05 The Queen’s Vase (Group 2)
  • 3:40 The Duke of Cambridge Stakes (Group 2)
  • 4:20 The Prince of Wales’s Stakes (Group 1)
  • 5:00 The Royal Hunt Cup (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 5:35 The Windsor Castle Stakes (Listed)
  • 6:10 The Kensington Palace Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)


The Duke Of Cambridge Stakes

This is an exciting one for the fillies and mares and it is LADY BOWTHORPE who is the current 2/1 favourite in Royal Ascot odds 2021* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

There are decent claims for the likes of CHAMPERS ELYSEES and QUEEN POWER in the market.

Prince Of Wales Stakes

Turning attention to the Prince of Wales Stakes for Royal Ascot 2021 odds, there are some big names here.

LOVE enters the fray as a 2/1 contender and is expected to right there in the mix alongside LORD NORTH* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral). Another with serious claims is ARMORY.

Royal Ascot Racing Tips – Thursday, June 17th

Thursday at Royal Ascot 2021 is Gold Cup Day. This is one of the big one of the Festival as the Group 1 contest takes centre stage.

It’s a brilliant spectacle, made even better with the brilliant STRADIVARIUS lining up in the contest as the favourite. Will he thrive again at Ascot?

The Ascot Gold Cup is the only Group 1 of the day, but the other highlights are the Hampton Court Stakes and the fillies’ contest that is the Ribblesdale.


Key Facts – Royal Ascot 2021 Thursday, June 17th

  • 2:30 The Norfolk Stakes (Group 2)
  • 3:05 The Hampton Court Stakes (Group 3)
  • 3:40 The Ribblesdale Stakes (Group 2)
  • 4:15 The Gold Cup (Group 1)
  • 5:00 The Britannia Stakes (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 5:35 The King George V Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 6:10 The Buckingham Palace Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)


Hampton Court Stakes

Looking like he is going to be the one to beat in Hampton Court Stakes in Royal Ascot Odds 2021 is MOHAAFETH who is currently 13/8* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

Will he have things all his own way as challenges come in from the likes of ONE RULER and ROMAN EMPIRE?

Ribblesdale Stakes

This fillies’ contest looks wide open, but the current favourite is NOON STAR at 11/4* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

We don’t see a clear run to victory without some pressure as there are strong claims also from ESHAADA and DIVINELY while DUBAI FOUNTAIN is another one for firm considerations.

Ascot Gold Cup

Well then, will STRADIVARIUS rule Ascot this summer? He is the 10/11 odds-on favourite for the Ascot Gold Cup 2021* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

He has returned to top form this season and has already won at Ascot this year.

Stradivarius romped to a one-length win in the Sagaro Stakes at the end of April. He’s back to defend his Gold Cup crown and he may be tough to stop.

Royal Ascot 2021 Preview – Friday, June 18th

The Group 1 action at Royal Ascot betting 2021 ramps back up for Friday as we have two races from the top level.

There is the Commonwealth Cup which takes centre stage for the first of those Group 1s, before being followed up by the fillies’ contest of the Coronation Stakes.

It is another day of high-class racing to come from the track and we preview some of the action for Royal Ascot racing tips 2021.


Key Facts – Royal Ascot 2021 Friday, June 18th

  • 2:30 The Albany Stakes (Group 3)
  • 3:05 The King Edward VII Stakes (Group 2)
  • 3:40 The Commonwealth Cup (Group 1)
  • 4:20 The Coronation Stakes (Group 1)
  • 5:00 The Sandringham Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 5:35 The Duke of Edinburgh Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 6:10 The Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)


Commonwealth Cup

This could be one of the most competitive Group 1 fixtures that go down at Royal Ascot this year. CAMPANELLE is the current 5/1 favourite for the contest* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

But we would not be surprised if SUESA makes the starting line up as the SP FAV for Ascot Racing Odds and there are also decent claims from current longer-produced ante-post options like JUMBY and SUPREMACY.

Coronation Stakes

Heading up the betting market for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot 2021 is EMPRESS JOSEPHINE at 4/1* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

But that is only a narrow market lead with the impressive MOTHER EARTH and PRIMO BACIO right behind. This could be fiercely contested.

Royal Ascot Betting 2021 – Saturday, June 19th

The final day of the Ascot Festival 2021 is on Saturday and the highlight of the day is the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, which is the only Group 1 fixture of the day.

That six-furlong contest is another of the festival highlights and it’s supported on the day by the Jersey Stakes and the Hardwicke Stakes.


Key Facts – Royal Ascot 2021 Saturday, June 19th

  • 3:05 The Jersey Stakes (Group 3)
  • 3.40 The Hardwicke Stakes (Group 2)

  • 5:00 The Wokingham Stakes (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 5:35 The Golden Gates Stakes (Handicap) (Class 2)
  • 6:10 The Queen Alexandra Stakes (Conditions) (Class 2)


Hardwicke Stakes

ILARAAB has made a decent impression this season and could feature strongly in the Hardwicke at 8/1* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral).

Other big names who can come into contention include SIR RON PRIESTLEY, AL AASY and LOGICIAN. There’s a fantastic lineup in this one.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes

Who gets the score in the final Group 1 contest of the Royal Ascot Festival 2021?

Heading up the market in Ascot racing odds is STARMAN at 11/4* (odds recorded at 19:08 on June 13th, 2021 at Coral). Will he live up to his name?

He does look like the one to beat to be fair, with principal threats behind DREAM OF DREAMS and NAHAARR.
