Royal Ascot is one of the biggest horse racing events in the world, and at the top of the list of the biggest flat meets in the UK. As a result, plenty of punters get in on the action during Royal Ascot week. If you are one of the occasional bettors who are planning on wagering on Royal Ascot, don’t forget these tips to give yourself the best chance to win.

Know Your Horses

One of the most important things you can do when betting on Royal Ascot is know as much as you can about the horses competing that you can. This is true for wagering on any sport, but especially horse racing, where the information available on each competitor is limited, what with their inability to tell everyone how they are feeling right before a race.

This means that punters should know what kind of form each horse is on ahead of time, along with other key details from their recent runs. If a horse has been blowing away their competition, knowing that can give you an advantage at the betting window that other players might not have.

Knowing which horses will not be attending the meet is also important. These absences can have a big effect on the rest of the race field, as certain horses missing can change the style of each race. The dynamic Shoals from Australia missing the meet, for example, will matter when it comes to the races that they were scheduled to be a part of. Without a horse of that calibre in the meet, those races should slow down or at least see some stylistic shifts.

Do Your Reading

While knowing as much as you can about the horses of the Royal Ascot meet is important before you go to the betting window, it is hard to know everything there is to know. Fortunately, there are tons of resources available to help punters find out as much as they can about each race before the horses get to the gates.

One of the best resources for information about races is horse racing tips. These come from people who know the sport inside and out, and can provide insight that simply reading about past results would not be able to give you. For example, tips on the Royal Ascot from Timeform don’t just cover past results but use knowledge of the style of each horse to make the best possible predictions on each race. While no tipster is perfect, tip sheets can improve any punter’s chances of having a good day at the window.

With so many great races to come from Royal Ascot, now that you have some ideas on how to go about placing your bets, you only need to wait and see if they turn out to be winners.
