Ascot Races

Ascot Racecourse is one of the most historic and prestigious courses in the country. The highlight of the year is Royal Ascot races, a five-day feast of superb racing every June, but the Berkshire course stages excellent flat and jumping fixtures throughout the calendar.

Ascot is a right-handed triangle of one mile and six furlongs, with a straight mile. It is a demanding course, with a long uphill run from Swinley Bottom leading to the home straight.

Ascot Racing Tips

  • Racing at Ascot is always extremely competitive, but look first for horses with good previous course form – that indicates they clearly relish its particular challenges.
  • On the flat, trainer John Gosden has a superb record with his runners here, while Frankie Dettori – who recorded his Magnificent Seven winners here in 1996 – still excels in the saddle at the course.
  • Over jumps, horses trained by Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson always merit respect, while jockey Nico de Boinville has an impressive winning percentage at Ascot.

The jockey's view

Bryony Frost
By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

Ascot Racecourse is right-handed, with a big pull for home on the track. It’s testing, but fast to ride. You always want to increase your speed down the hill and with a consistent pace you can see midfield runners do well because the pull for home takes a lot of stamina.

On the chase track the fences are quite close together so there’s not much time to make moves, which is why you’ll see horses swing wider to move their positions forward as they approach.

Ascot Races Behind Closed Doors

Ascot races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Ascot races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Ascot races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to an Ascot Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
