2023 Royal Ascot Horse Racing Schedule
Royal Ascot 2023 begins on Tuesday 20th June 2022 at 2.30pm.
There are eight Group 1s during the week at Royal Ascot and the opening race of the meeting is one of those. The Queen Anne Stakes is run over 1m and is exclusive to horses of four-years-old and upwards. The juveniles and Classic generation have their chances elsewhere, but this is the true miling championship of the week, won by a champion in Baaeed last year.
Speaking of the juveniles, the two-year-olds get their first taste of the action in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes. The likes of Canford Cliffs, Dawn Approach and Caravaggio have all won this in recent years and it is a usually a good gauge of future talent.
More Group 1 action follows, and this time it is the turn of the sprinters. The King’s Stand Stakes is run over the minimum trip of 5f and is open to all ages of three and upwards. Blue Point famously won this in a top tier double in 2019 before claiming the 6f Diamond Jubilee Stakes later in the week.
The final top level prize of the day is the St James’s Palace Stakes. Another 1m prize, it is only for three-year-olds. It comes after all of the British, Irish and French 2000 Guineas’ have been run and often pits the winners of those championships against each other. Last season, it was the Newmarket winner who doubled up in this race, as Coroebus won a thrilling finish.
The final three races offer up chances at a lower level. The opening handicap of the meeting is a stayers’ race in the 2m4f Ascot Stakes, while the Listed Wolferton Stakes over 1m2f changed from a handicap to an open event in 2018. Multiple Group 1 winner Addeybb took that particular race in 2019.
Day 1 concludes with one of the newest races of the meeting in the Copper Horse Handicap, run over 1m6f and limited to those rated 105 and below.
Day 2 at Royal Ascot begins with the first race limited to fillies. The Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes is for the sprietliest two-year-olds, as it is run over just 5f. Lady Aurelia became a sensation after winning this for Wesley Ward and Frankie Dettori by a wide margin in 2016.
The Queen’s Vase is another race for the three-year-olds. Originally run over 2m, it was marginally reduced in distance to 1m6f in 2017. Since then, it has proved an excellent trial for the St Leger, with Kew Gardens winning the Doncaster Classic after taking this race, while Stradivarius and Santiago were narrowly beaten in it.
The Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes is another 1m contest for the older fillies and mares and precedes one of the most prestigious contests in the British racing calendar, the Group 1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.
Run over 1m2f, the highlight of day 2 is restricted to those aged four and older. The last five winners have all been sensational in their own right: Highland Reel, Poet’s Word, Crystal Ocean, Lord North and Love have all played their parts in some of the flat’s most phenomenal showdowns in recent years.
History runs throughout day 2, with the Royal Hunt Cup, one of the biggest handicaps of the week, established in 1843 and fifth on the card. The day concludes with another two-year-old contest over 5f in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes while the concluding Kensington Palace Stakes, a handicap exclusive to fillies and mares, established only last year.
Another 5f juvenile contest opens up day 3. The Group 2 Norfolk Stakes was won by a shock 50/1 outsider last year as The Ridler came out on top in a controversial finish.
Following the opener, it’s the King George V Stakes, a handicap race that was won by market leader Secret State last year, for the Godolphin team of Charlie Appleby and William Buick.
Following swiftly on it’s the Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes, which is Ascot’s equivalent of the Oaks and is another title which has been claimed by some top class performers before their greater glories.
The showpiece, however, is the Gold Cup. The original flat showpiece was run for the first time long before its Cheltenham jumping equivalent and is a true stamina-sapping test. The 2m4f Group 1 was memorably won for the Queen by Estimate in 2013, while Stradivarius, claimed a hat-trick in the race between 2018 and 2020 but failed to match Yeats incredible four wins in the race.
The Brittania Stakes is up next, where it might pay to side with one at bigger odds in it – eight of the last ten winners won at a double-figure price.
The penultimate race on the card is the Group 3 Hampton Court Stakes, which has been claimed by some horses who were only on their way to the very top, including Hawkbill and Benbatl. Ladies Day concludes with a handicap, in the form of the Buckingham Palace Stakes.
Day 4 is another which involves multiple Group 1s, as well as Royal Ascot’s equivalent of the Derby.
The Group 3 Albany Stakes, run over 6f, is another of the two-year-old contests which shapes the season ahead, and opens the fourth day.
Then comes the King Edward VII Stakes. Run over 1m4f and for three-year-old colts and geldings only, it was originally known as the Ascot Derby before taking its name in memory of the monarch in 1926. Global Group 1 heroes Old Persian, Japan and Pyledriver all feature as winners within the last five years of the contest.
Next up it’s a handicap, in the form of the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes, a race where it may be worth siding with the younger generation – seven of the last ten runnings have been won by four-year-olds.
Top level action swiftly follows, with the first of the day’s Group 1s being the Commonwealth Cup. Another race exclusively for three-year-olds, it is the newest of the Group 1s at Royal Ascot, and is a sprint contest for this younger generation.
The Coronation Stakes is far more established. Like the St James’s Palace Stakes earlier in the week, it acts as a miling championship for the various 1000 Guineas heroines across Europe. Winter, Alpha Centauri and Alcohol Free have all claimed recent renewals.
Once more, a duo of handicaps provide a fantastic betting end to day 4. The Sandringham Stakes, and another new edition in the Palace Of Holyroodhouse Stakes, both feature in the remainder of the card.
The final day of Royal Ascot see’s it’s flagship race renamed in honour of one of racings most beloved fans.
Before the Group 1 action, there is plenty else to get stuck into. The Listed Chesham Stakes is run over 7f, and is the furthest trip for two-year-olds at that point in the racing calendar. It highlights potential future middle distance runners.
The Group 3 Jersey Stakes is another of the three-year-old contests. Another over 7f, it is an opportunity for those who may not be considered top sprinters or milers to claim a Royal Ascot prize. Afterwards, the 1m4f Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes is another such opportunity, this time for the older horses a little below Group 1 standard.
The Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Stakes has been renamed in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who sadly passed away in 2022. Run as the Diamond Jubilee Stakes in the past, this was the race in which Blue Point landed his double, having won the King’s Stand Stakes over 5f earlier in the week.
The Wokingham Stakes, another run over 6f, is one of the biggest handicaps of the week and is another highlight of day 5. Often attracting fields close to 30 runners, it is one of the spectacles of the week too, with a cavalry charge more than likely.
The Golden Gates Stakes, another relatively new handicap, and the Queen Alexandre Stakes, the longest flat race on the British calendar at a whopping 2m5f, are the concluding two races, which will no doubt bring the curtain down on another fabulous Royal Ascot.
