• The Commonwealth Cup is the only Group 1 race exclusively for three-year-olds that allows the geldings to compete.

  • The Copper Horse Stakes, Palace of Holyroodhouse Stakes and the Golden Gates Stakes are all new races starting as of 2021.

  • At 2 miles, 5 furlongs and 143 yards, the concluding Queen Alexandra Stakes is the longest race of the meeting that the horse racing commentators have to deal with.


Over the course of five days every June, top races galore take place at Ascot racecourse (the Royal meeting), and every year there are new trends and statistics to analyse.

Naturally trends and statistics are only a guide to what is likely to happen - they are not an exact science, but quite often patterns do emerge so it worth looking at races and dissecting their recent history.

This hopefully should lead to you to picking some winners. Below is a full resume of Royal Ascot’s races each day and all the conditions of entry.
