Royal Ascot is here and there is no better place to get involved in all the action than Ladbrokes!
The Aussies are back at Royal Ascot and we can’t wait to see Nature Strip fly the flag in the King’s Stand Stakes.
The Queen Anne Stakes and the St James’s Palace Stakes are the other Group 1 races on the card and some of the best horses in the world will be in action.
Our Royal Ascot Day 1 best bets are now available!
Ascot - Race 1 11:30pm AEST
No. 2 Baaeed
Baaeed is deserving of his status as a dominant favourite in the Queen Anne Stakes and will prove very tough to beat.
He has now recorded seven wins from as many race starts and he claimed a third win at Group 1 level in the Lockinge Stakes.
There is an argument to be made that he is the best horse in the world and he should prove far too classy for his rivals in the Queen Anne Stakes.
Royal Ascot - Race 2 12:05am AEST
No. 2 Blackbeard
Blackbeard is the horse to beat in the Coventry Stakes.
He has scored three wins from as many race starts and he went to a new level when he took out the Marble Hill Stakes at Curragh last start.
The No Nay Never colt has plenty of upside and we know how strong the Ryan Moore and Aidan O’Brien combination are at Royal Ascot.
Royal Ascot - Race 3 12:40am AEST
No. 12 Nature Strip
Nature Strip can cement himself as the best sprinter in the world with a win in the King’s Stand Stakes.
He might not be the most consistent horse in the world, but his record in The Everest and the TJ Smith Stakes shows that he is always ready to peak on Grand Final Day.
His straight track record is outstanding and he can run his rivals off their feet.
Royal Ascot - Race 4 1:20am AEST
No. 6 Coroebus
Coroebus is clearly the horse to beat in the St James’s Palace Stakes and he is deserving of his status as a clear favourite.
He returned to the races with a classy win in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and he still has the scope to improve on that performance.
This isn’t the strongest edition of the St James’s Palace Stakes and he should prove far too classy for the rest of this field.
