Royal Ascot Day 1 2020

Royal Ascot Day 1 will be held on Tuesday 16th June 2020. With three Group One race and a Group Two from the first four, then many feel Royal Ascot Tuesday is the best of the lot when it comes to quality.

The Royal Ascot race planners over the years have it clear that they want to hit the ground running from Royal Ascot Day 1, with the Group One Queen Anne Stakes the traditional Royal Ascot curtain raiser – last year (2019), the popular grey, Lord Glitters, won the prize.

Next-up is the Coventry Stakes – a race for the 2 year-olds – and with 6 wins from the last 18 renewals then trainer Aidan O’Brien is always worth following. He landed the race last year too with Arizona.

The Group One King’s Stand Stakes is next – a race some of the fastest sprinters on the globe target.

The St James’s Palace Stakes is the fourth race on day one of Royal Ascot. This is another race the powerful Aidan O’Brien yard have done well in recently – winning 6 of the last 18, including again in 2019 with a horse called Circus Maximus.

The Royal Ascot day one action continues with the Ascot Stakes – a race that is one of the longest flat races on the calendar (2m4f) – so often attracts trainers that are better known for running horses over the jumps. Day one at Royal Ascot ends with the Listed Wolverton Stakes – a race that has been won by a 4 year-old in 12 of the last 17 years.
