Royal Ascot Who to Bet On?
With more Royal Ascot Favourites on the way, we are doing our research and there are two stand out horses at the top of our list when it comes to who to bet on Royal Ascot 2020.
STRADIVARIUS – Royal Ascot Favourite
- Age: 5
- Trainer: John Gosden
- Previous Royal Ascot Form: Winner of Royal Ascot Gold Cup 2018 & 2019
Dubbed the million-pound horse as this John Gosden champion stayer landed the £1million bonus put up by the sponsors in 2018 after winning the Yorkshire Cup, Ascot Gold Cup, Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale Cup.
He’s won the Ascot Gold Cup at Royal Ascot for the last season seasons (2018 and 2019) too and since being upped in trip back in 2017 has certainly taken this division by storm.
Mr Royal Ascot – Frankie Dettori – is his regular jockey and with age still on his side – he won the 2019 Ascot Gold Cup as a 5 year-old – then providing his trainer, John Gosden, can keep him injury-free, then he looks sure to be a hot Ascot favourite with punters for many years to come.
If lining-up again at Royal Ascot 2020, then he’ll be trying to follow in the hoof-prints of Yeats, who landed the Ascot Gold Cup four times between 2006 and 2009.
- Age: 5
- Trainer: Charles Hills
- Previous Royal Form: Runner Up of the King’s Stand 2018 & 2019
One of the fastest flat racing horses in the world and despite having never won at Royal Ascot he’ll still be a firm favourite at the meeting if lining-up in 2020.
He’s been runner-up in the King’s Stand at Royal Ascot for the last two years (2018 and 2019), but most importantly the horse that has beaten him both times – Blue Point – is now retired. Therefore, with this Godolphin runner now out of the picture this should pave the way for Battaash to be another warm favourite at the 2020 Royal Ascot meeting.
