When is the Royal Ascot Festival 2022?

Royal Ascot 2022 takes place from the 14th – 18th June.

Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot Week is an iconic event held at Ascot Racecourse in June each year. A chance to impress in all your finery, this three hundred year old event attended by the Queen began life in 1711.

Ascot Racecourse is situated in Berkshire and was founded by Queen Anne in 1711. Queen Anne, as with our Queen Elizabeth today, was a keen horsewoman and the first race at Ascot was “Her Majesty’s Plate” held on 11th August 1711.

Seven horses competed for a prize of 100 guineas (which today would be around £10.5k). Now the total prize money is estimated to be over £7.3 million, with the summer highlight “King George” race enjoying a £1.25 million prize.

That first race comprised of three separate four mile heats. Today, Royal Ascot week features eight Group One races and nineteen Group races in total. Sadly, no record was kept of that very first winner at Ascot back in 1711, so we can only imagine what the name of that horse may have been!

It is surprising to know that from its creation in 1711 up until 1945, the only racing that took place at Ascot was the Four Day Royal Event. Since 1945, additional fixtures have been added to the racecourse, notably the addition of National Hunt racing in 1965. The National Hunt course was created using turf from Hurst Park Racecourse which closed in 1962.

The Royal Ascot Event

Over the years the horses making the headlines at Royal Ascot have had an increasingly international flavour, with representation from USA, Australia and Hong Kong. The majority of trainers are still from the UK and Ireland though.

From its inception in 1768 up until 2002, Royal Ascot was a four day event. In 2002 it was increased to five days in celebration of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Not only is this a key event in the horse racing calendar but also in the social calendar. Over three hundred thousand people attend one of the three enclosures, with the Royal Enclosure naturally being the most prestigious!

The famous Ascot Gold Cup was introduced in 1807, and it was this key event that was really the making of the Royal Ascot event. Winners have been recorded since 1807, right from the first “Master Jackey” through to the 2020 winner Stradivarius.

For those lucky enough to be a winning owner of the Gold Cup, you will be presented with a gold trophy, traditionally by the ruling Monarch, which is yours to keep. The same goes for the Queen’s Vase (in commemoration of the coronation of Queen Victoria) and the Royal Hunt Cup (introduced in 1843).

Winning owners of the remaining races are presented with a Challenge Trophy, which is returned to Ascot to be presented to their successor the following year.

This is a truly historic annual event with all the pomp, tradition and excitement you might expect of a Royal event, and of course the chance to see some of the best horses in the world in action.

This is our FOURTEENTH Royal Ascot…

We love Royal Ascot here at Free Racing Tips, the team have been really busy preparing the best guide to Royal Ascot that we can for our members.

We have been studying the form, stats and analysing performance of horses destined for their moment in one of the 36 races taking place this year.  The new additions will have less information available to them till nearer the time, and will be updated as more is known about them.

We have compiled all the stats for as far back as 12 years ago for every race.  We include everything you need to help you make better betting selections, with our useful trends section.

We will make a short list of main contenders for each race, and give our considered opinion on each of their chances.  Once final declarations are in, we will wittle them down to provide you with the best bet for the race.

We will regularly update our Royal Ascot tips as new information is released and add to our resources, available to our members.

Once they are updated, you can see our latest antepost thoughts on every single race for Royal Ascot:
Royal Ascot Trends and Stats

For each Royal Ascot race we have compiled stats and trends for the past 12 years (where data allows).  This has enabled us to find out some pretty good insights into what is needed from each horse to win each race.

Here's some nuggets from the analysis of the Royal Ascot stats:

In the St James's Palace Stakes, all of the previous 12 winners had run in the past 45 days;  11 of the winners had at least 2 runs in the season, and had won at least once already in the season.

We found that all 12 winners in the Coventry Stakes had at least one win in the current season, none of which wore head gear.

11 out of the 12 winners of the Queen Mary Stakes had their last run between 13 and 55 days previous and had never won at Ascot before, but they all had at least one previous flat win in the current season.

For the Commonwealth Cup, we found that all five winners had a previous race 20-48 days ago, all five had run at 6 furlongs at least 3 times and recorded at least one win at the trip.

There have only been five winners in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and all five of them had run at least 7 times and four of them have won at least 5 times.  All five winners were rated between 114 and 120.

As you can see, by studying the form and previous winners, patterns can be formed, which can help you narrow the field and make better decisions.  Each of our race pages have the full list of trends from the data available for each race.

And we have tips for them all!

Yes indeed!

We will be sharing our tips for Royal Ascot with our members every single day of Royal Ascot week.
