There is bound to be fun, fashion and plenty of Royal Ascot free bets on the cards as we gear up for one of the most loved and known horse racing events in the calendar. Join us as we look at who to nest on at Ascot 2021 and the Royal Ascot favourites. 


Race: King’s Stand Stakes

Time: Tuesday 3:35pm

Trainer: Charles Hill

Age: 5

Previous Ascot wins: King’s Stand 2020

As one of the fastest flat racing horses around at the moment, Bataash stands as a popular favourite for the race that he won last year. He was also runner-up in the same race in 2018 and 2019. 


Race: Gold Cup 

Time: Thursday 3:35pm

Trainer: John Gosden

Age: 7

Previous Ascot wins: Royal Ascot Gold Cup 2018, 2019 and 2020. Queen Vase 2017

Stradivarius is clearly a seasoned winner when it comes to the Gold Cup, and his previous form makes him the favourite for the race this year. He is a famous horse and so he has a famous jockey to boot – Frankie Dettori. There are many people who are very excited to see this horse race at Ascot again, and it looks likely that he will not disappoint. 

Palace Pier

Race: Queen Anne Stakes

Time: Tuesday 1:50pm

Trainer: John Gosden

Age: 4

Previous Ascot wins: St. James’s Palace Stakes 2020

This young horse is a joy to watch, and made a lot of people very happy with the win registered in 2020 when he was ridden to victory by Frankie Detorri. Having had a break from the races, it is expected that Palace Pier will be in good condition and ready to race at Ascot. He is tipped to become one of the highlights of the meet, and bettors and spectators alike are interested in what he is going to do when he races in the race named after the woman who saw the potential in the racecourse way back in 1711. 

Lord North

Race: Prince of Wales Stakes

Time: Wednesday 3pm

Trainer: John Gosden

Age: 5

Previous Ascot wins: Prince of Wales Stakes 2020

Lord North, another grand horse trained by John Gosden, is back to defend his title this year in the Prince of Wales Stakes. It is a race that is popular with the punters, and there is always a huge crowd in attendance. If he does manage to win the Prince of Wales Stakes in 2021 he will become only the fourth horse ever to win it multiple times. He has had a bit of a mixed year, and there has been some question over his form. However, when it comes to the big events, he surely likes to perform, and with a trainer as good as Gosden behind him we are sure that he is set to be one of the winners of Royal Ascot 2021.
