History of the Ascot Gold Cup race at Royal Ascot

First run in 1807, the Gold Cup was originally open to horses 3 years and over.

An interesting fact is that the 1844 race was attended by Nicholas I of Russia, who was making a state visit to England. Czar Nicholas offered a new trophy for the race the “Emperor’s Plate” and this became the title of the event for a short period. Its original name was restored in 1853, during the Crimean War.

Lester Piggott is the Gold Cup’s most successful jockey, with a phenomenal eleven wins between 1957 and 1982.

The leading trainer is Aidan O’Brien who has recorded seven wins so far, four of them with the fantastic YEATS. YEATS remains the most successful horse of the Ascot Gold Cup, with none beating it’s four wins.

What’s Keith’s Ascot Gold Cup Tips for Royal Ascot 2020?

With the uncertainty of whether this race will be run due to the current coronavirus situation in the UK, it’s hard to predict selections for the upcoming Ascot Gold Cup at Royal Ascot.

As soon as the picture is clearer, we will post Keith’s tips for the Ascot Gold Cup here.

Who is your Royal Ascot Tipster?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers. Keith lives and breathes horse racing, having begun his love of horse racing over 40 years ago with a part time job at Catterick Racecourse, as one of three fourteen year-olds looking after two jumps and a hurdle.

Over the years, Keith has been a regular at the northern tracks attending countless race meetings and building up a network of contacts, and a portfolio of systems and strategies. 

He was one of the co-founders of Free Racing Tips all the way back in 2008, and his free tips are now backed by more than seventy thousand FRT members every single day.

“Thanks Keith – It’s great to be part of an amazing group of people all after the same thing, passing on tips to beat the bookies”

Colin Parkinson, Harrow.

The FRT community love Keith’s attention to detail, knowledge of past races, and ability to pick horses...

“You offer some great tips, some fantastic outsiders tipped up as well. Most tipsters just put up favourites. Well done and keep up the good work”

John Woolley, Stockport

What did Keith Tip in the 2019 Ascot Gold Cup?

This is what Keith said about the 2019 Ascot Gold Cup:

Leading Contenders
STRADIVARIOUS 13/8 – Dominated the staying division last season winning five from five and it will take something special to knock him off his perch, but the opposition look stronger this year. Won his prep race at York.
CROSS COUNTER 9/2 – Impressive CV, three wins from four at Group Level. Finished off last season with victory in the Melbourne Cup and started this season with a win in the Dubai Gold Cup.
DEE EX BEE 6/1 – Second in the Derby was definitely his best run last season. The step up to two miles brought out the best in him and he won the Sagaro here with some authority and followed up in the Henry II at Sandown has put him firmly in the picture to this race.
KEW GARDENS 12/1 – St Leger winner, seventh in the Arc only four lengths behind Enable. Won the Queen’s Vase at last year’s Royal Ascot in a faster time than STRADIVARIOUS the year before. Second on unsuitable going at Chester last time.

Readers of our Ascot Flyer will know that my original selection was KEW GARDENS each way and I still believe he will be involved but the way that DEE EX BEE 6/1 each way has been running this season is impressive and I think that is where the value lies.

Look out for Keith’s day one tips in your inbox on June the 15th*

What our members tipped in the 2019 Ascot Gold Cup

Each day we ask our members to select their Pick 6, their NAP for each race of the day.  We then collate all the picks, and present the top selections to our VIP members.  Here’s how it went for the Ascot Gold Cup 2019:

No guessing who gets the lion’s share of the votes, with Stradivarius way out in front with almost 60% of the votes.  Dee Ex Bee the nearest contender with 21.7% of the votes.

Royal Ascot Ascot Gold Cup Results 2019

1 Stradivarius 1/1F
2 Dee Ex Bee 7/2
3 Master Of Reality 66/1
11 ran Distances: 1l, nse, ¾l

Our Verdict:

It nearly didn’t happen for Stradivarius as he got blocked in until a furlong out, but as space opened up, and Dettori asks for effort, Stradivarius delivers, taking the Ascot Gold Cup from Dee Ex Bee who led for much of the race. Our members and our Tipster both agreed to form the forecast – Stradivarius and Dee Ex Bee leaving plenty of punters happy with that result.
