A look ahead to Royal Ascot

The 2015 Royal Ascot meeting gets underway on Tuesday 16th June with over 80,000 punters expected to attend the course over the five day event.

The meeting will feature some of the world’s greatest racehorses and the greatest trainers on the planet will be eager for their horses to succeed throughout the week.

The meeting will see 19 Group One races – an astonishing figure that really shows the quality of horses on show at Ascot this year.

We take a look at a few of the standout races and provide our brief thoughts on which horses are the ones to watch at the 2015 event.

King’s Stand Stakes (Tuesday 3:45pm)

This race always seems to attract a lot of betting attention and, with some fantastic runners and riders in line to take part, this year’s race should be no different.

Sole Power, who remains at the top of the betting, has won this event for the last two years but there are a number of quality horses that could challenge Sole Power’s dominance. Brazen Beau is in superb form, while Shamal Wind could be well backed on the day.

Ascot Gold Cup (Wednesday 4:25pm)

One of the highlights of the meeting, the Ascot Gold Cup has been won by a number of brilliant horses over the past few years. Queen Elizabeth II’s horse Estimate won this race back in 2013 and the Dermot Weld trained Forgotten Rules is the horse to beat in this year’s event. However, former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has entered Brown Panther – winning of the Dubai Gold Cup – and he could challenge if the ground suits him.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Saturday 4:25pm)

This race is the highlight of Royal Ascot’s final day and will feature some of the world’s best sprinters in the six furlong event. Due Diligence is well fancied and will stake a strong claim for victory but the likes of G Force, Music Master and Pretend could all compete for glory. Last year, 7/2 favourite Slade Power romped home for Edward Lynam and one of the favourites could well go on to claim victory in the 2015 race too.
