This year’s meeting starts on June 14th, and concludes on June 18th, with 35 races scheduled over that period – including no fewer than eight Group 1 contests.

Royal Ascot 2022 kicks off with the Buckingham Palace Handicap. This 7f handicap returned to Royal Ascot last year after a five-year hiatus, and it proved so popular that organisers kept it in the calendar for 2022.

Queen Anne Stakes

The opening Group 1 at Royal Ascot 2022 is the Queen Anne Stakes. Run over a straight mile, this is open to horses aged four years or older and as a result often attracts global representatives from the likes of France, USA and Germany.

The Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes is one of only three races at Royal Ascot – alongside the Coronation Stakes, and the Sandringham – that is consigned to three-year-old fillies. The race often sees horses that had contested the Epsom Oaks.

The colt’s equivalent of the Ribblesdale is the King Edward VII Stakes, run immediately after the former. The King Edward VII Stakes often features horses that contested the Epsom Derby – with Japan winning the race in 2019 two weeks after having finished third at Epsom.

King’s Stand Stakes

Punters looking for Royal Ascot day 1 tips will be interested in the King’s Stand Stakes, which is the feature contest on the first day of Royal Ascot. There have been multiple two-time winners of the King’s Stand – including in recent years via the likes of Equiano (2008 & 2010), Sole Power (2013 & 2014) and Blue Point (2018 & 2019). Battaash will be aiming to join that illustrious club when lining up in the 2022 King’s Stand.

Open to fillies and mares aged four or older, the Duke of Cambridge Stakes is a mile contest that has been run at Royal Ascot since 2004. Sir Michael Stoute is currently the most successful trainer in the race having trained four Duke of Cambridge winners.

Royal Ascot day 1 concludes with the Ascot Stakes. The Ascot Stakes is a handicap run over just shy of 2m4f. Its extreme distance often sees many entries from national hunt trainers – and the recent roll of honour is littered with horses trained by the likes of Nicky Henderson and Willie Mullins.

The Silver Royal Hunt Cup is one of the newest races added to Royal Ascot having had its inaugural renewal just last year – won by Sir Busker. The race is a consolation for the Royal Hunt Cup which is run over the same course and distance and features later on the day 2 card.

The Hampton Court Stakes follows on from the Silver Royal Hunt Cup. The Hampton Court Stakes is a 1m2f Group 3 contest for three-year-olds. Those looking for Royal Ascot day 2 tips will do worse than follow Ryan Moore and Aidan O’Brien in the Hampton Court Stakes. The duo are the most successful jockey and trainer in the race’s history, having landed four renewals each – teaming up to land the race on two occasions (Hunting Horn – 2018, Russian Emperor – 2020).

Exclusively for three-year-olds, the King George V Stakes has been run at Royal Ascot since 1984. Its 1m4f distance often enearths future stayers, with the popular Brown Panther landing the contest back in 2011.

Prince of Wales’s Stakes

The feature race on Royal Ascot day 2 is the Group 1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes. Run over just shy of 1m2f, the contest has a prestigious role of honour that – in recent years – includes the likes of Poet’s Word and Crystal Ocean. Only three horses in history have won the race more than once, with the most recent being Muhtarram (1994 & 1995).

Succeeding the Prince of Wales’s Stakes is the Royal Hunt Cup. The mile contest often has fields of more than twenty runners, making it notoriously one of the most difficult handicaps at Royal Ascot. The race is open to horses aged three or older, yet there has just been one winner older than six (Field Of Dream, 2014) since its inception back in 1980.

The first race of Royal Ascot 2022 that is consigned to two-year-olds is the Windsor Castle Stakes. This Listed event is run over 5f, and was won last year by Tactical – a horse owned by Her Majesty, the Queen.

The Copper Horse Handicap closes day 2’s card. The Copper Horse Handicap had just its first renewal last year, and is a 1m6f handicap for horses aged four or older. The inaugural renewal of the race was taken by the Roger Varian trained Fujaira Prince.

The Wolferton Stakes follows the Golden Gates, the Wolferton is a Listed event run over 1m2f. John Gosden’s four Wolferton Stakes wins makes him the most successful trainer in the race’s history.

The Jersey Stakes is the first Group race run on Day Three of Royal Ascot. The Jersey Stakes is run over a straight 7f, and is consigned to three-year-old horses. Sir Michael Stoute has won the race on no fewer than six occasions.

Took in by future dual Guineas winner Churchill back in 2016, the Listed Chesham Stakes is run over 7f and available solely to two-year-old horses.

Ascot Gold Cup

One of the most prestigious races in the calendar, the Gold Cup was established back in 1807 and has become a permanent fixture ever since. The most successful horse in the race’s history is the mighty Yeats, who won four straight Gold Cups from 2006. This year’s Gold Cup will feature Stradivarius, a horse aiming to emulate Yeats by winning four consecutive Gold Cups. Stradivarius is likely to feature prominently when searching for Royal Ascot day 3 tips.

Succeeding the Gold Cup is the Britannia Stakes. Run over a straight mile and available only to three-year-olds, the race has proven very popular since its inception back in 1988.

Closing Royal Ascot day 3 is the Sandringham Stakes, run over a straight mile this handicap is consigned to three-year-old fillies. Frankie Dettori has ridden seven Sandringham winners, making him the most successful jockey in the race’s history.

The Palace Of Holyroodhouse Handicap is the last race run on day 4 of Royal Ascot. The race was only added to the meeting last year, and is a 5f sprint handicap consigned to three-year-old horses – Art Power won the inaugural renewal.

A fairly new Group race, being established in 2002, the opening contest is the Albany Stakes, which is a Group 3 race run over 6f and open to two-year-old fillies.

Following the Albany is the Norfolk Stakes, the race is run over 5f and open to two-year-old horses. The race was promoted to Group 2 level in 2006, and Lester Piggott is currently the most successful rider in the race’s history, having taken the Norfolk on no fewer than nine occasions.

The Hardwicke Stakes is seen by many as a trial for the following month’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. This 1m4f Group 2 has been farmed by Sir Michael Stoute in recent years, with that yard sending out eight of the last fifteen winners.

Commonwealth Cup

Those looking for Royal Ascot day 4 tips will undoubtedly be keen on finding the winner of Friday’s feature Commonwealth Cup. One of the most recent Group 1’s added to Royal Ascot’s schedule, the Commonwealth Cup is a 6f Group 1 which is open only to three-year-old horses.

Following the Commonwealth Cup is the Group 2 Queen’s Vase. This Group 2 is run over a taxing 1m6f and is open solely to three-year-olds. The race has proven a good trial for the Ascot Gold Cup, with recent winners Estimate, Leading Light and Stradivarius all going on to take the previous day’s feature race.

Day 4 concludes with the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes. This 1m4f handicap is open to horses aged three-years-old and up.

The final day of Royal Ascot begins with the Silver Wokingham Handicap. The race acts as an alternative for horses unable to qualify for the Wokingham Stakes, which appears later on day 5’s card.

Following the Silver Wokingham is the Queen Mary Stakes. This 5f Group 2 is consigned to two-year-old fillies.

Succeeding the Queen Mary is the Coventry Stakes, which holds the same Group 2 classification, but is run over a furlong further (6f). Open to two-year-old horses, last year’s renewal was won by 150/1 shot Nando Parrado – a horse unlikely to have featured prominently in last year’s Royal Ascot day 5 tips.

Coronation Stakes

The first of three consecutive Group 1’s held on Royal Ascot day 5, the Coronation Stakes is a mile contest open to three-year-old fillies. The race often has a heavy international flavour, with three of the last six winners trained in France – something to note for anyone looking at Ascot tips 2022.

St James’s Palace Stakes

The colts equivalent of the Coronation Stakes is the St James’s Palace – which is a Group 1 run over the same mile distance. Established back in 1834, Aidan O’Brien has proved the go-to man in the St James’s Palace in recent years, winning eight renewals since 2000 – making him the most successful trainer in the race’s history.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes

The final Group 1 contested at Royal Ascot is the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. This 6f sprint is open to horses aged four and over, as well as three-year-olds from the Southern Hemisphere. The race was won by Champion Australian sprinter Black Caviar back in 2012.

The penultimate race of Royal Ascot 2022 is the Wokingham Stakes. This handicap is run over the same 6f distance as the Diamond Jubilee, and has been part of the Royal Ascot fabric since 1813. Four horses have won the race twice, but as of yet, no horse has won three or more Wokingham Handicap’s.

The concluding race of Royal Ascot 2022, or the ‘getting out stakes’, for anyone following Royal Ascot 2022 tips, is the Queen Alexandra Stakes. Open to horses aged four-years-old and over, the Queen Alexandra Stakes is run over 2m5f – making it the longest flat race run in Britain.

Royal Ascot Favourites and Predictions – Who will win the Gold Cup 2022?

The Gold Cup at Royal Ascot remains one of the most sought-after prizes on offer across the entire five-day meeting with an illustrious roll of honour to its name. The 2m3f contest has been landed by some incredible staying stars over the years and this year’s renewal promises to be a blockbuster not to be missed with a host of worthy challengers looking to etch their names in Royal Ascot folklore. Here at GG, we have highlighted the chances of three of the stars running in the day 3 contest below.

Trueshan 

Alan King’s dual Group 1 winner TRUESHAN will look to make it a hat-trick of wins at the highest level as the six-year-old returns to Ascot for just the third time in his career. The talented six-year-old stayer enjoyed a highly productive campaign last term, landing the Goodwood Cup in July before getting the better of Stradivarius in the Prix du Cadran over at Parislongchamp. Regular rider Hollie Doyle couldn’t believe how well Trueshan felt when guiding the six-year-old to his eleventh career success at Nottingham on his seasonal return and with all roads now leading to Royal Ascot in June,  Alan King’s charge will be a key player in the Gold Cup this year and it’s worth remembering that Trueshan is yet to taste defeat at the Berkshire track.

Kyprios 

Four-year-olds have done particularly well in recent Gold Cup renewals and whilst Aidan O’Brien last tasted success in this race back in 2016 with Order of St George, the Irish handler looks to have a serious challenger in this year’s contest in the shape of KYPRIOS. The lightly-raced son of Galileo has only been seen on the track six times during his relatively short career, however, those six runs have produced four impressive victories, including when running away with Group 3 honours at Leopardstown back in May. The four-year-old has always been held in high regard at home and while he faces his biggest challenge yet against established staying performers at Royal Ascot next month, Kyprios remains open to any amount of improvement and a proper test of stamina should suit him very well.

Stradivarius

What else can be said about John Gosden’s champion stayer STRADIVARIUS? Now at the age of eight, many expected him to lose out at York’s Dante Festival when lining up in the Yorkshire Cup in May, however, under a confident ride by Frankie Dettori, the supremely talented chestnut wowed the crowds once more on the Knavesmire and readily landed his sixth success at the track and his third Yorkshire Cup. Despite proving no match for Trueshan on two occasions last season, John Gosden’s stayer is still a force to be reckoned with and after his remarkable York triumph in May, it would come as no surprise to see the eight-year-old land his fourth Ascot Gold Cup in June and create another piece of Royal Ascot history.

The Ascot Racecourse

Ascot racecourse is visited by approximately 600,000 people every year, with the track hosting 13 of the 36 annual flat Group 1 races in the country and their most prestigious fixture in the calendar year is the five-day Royal Ascot meeting.
