Royal Ascot 2022 is here! Odds for Gold Cup..
Racing fans have a treat to look forward to this week, as it’s once again time for the prestigious 5 day Royal Ascot festival. With a feast of high class racing to come, as well as the one and only Ladies Day extraveganza to look forward to, exictement levels are going through the roof. Followers of racing will know that Ladies Day takes place on the same day as the Jewel in the Crown that is the historic Gold Cup. Current favourite to win is the Dettori ridden Stradivarius (5/2) , followed by Trueshan (6-1), and Princess Zoe (8-1). Other races to watch during Royal Ascot festival are Queen Anne Stakes (Tuesday), Coronation Stakes (Friday) and Platinum Jubilee Stakes (Saturday).
One avid watcher and indeed participant of Royal Ascot is none other than trainer and Betway ambassador Andrew Balding. Here, in a bite size yet informative Betway Insider video interview , he talks about his triumphant 2021 Royal Ascot wins (two year old Berkshire Shadows win was a highlight for him) and thoughts on 2022. He views Royal Ascot as the most important meeting of the year for flat trainers, and you can just tell how much success at the event means to him. Balding favours ‘The Foxes’ in the Chesham and has high hopes for the Queens horse ‘Kings Lynn’ in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes. Watch the video, have a flutter and then tune in for these unmissable moments.
