Royal Ascot Tuesday

The first day of Royal Ascot traditionally takes place on a Tuesday, and is headlined by no less than three Group 1 races. The curtain-raiser of the meeting is the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes, which regularly features the top milers in Europe. The two other top level races on the card are the King's Stand Stakes over five furlongs, and the St James's Palace Stakes - which is for three-year-old colts over a mile.

We have all the latest betting information on the Royal Ascot Day 1 races, along with all the form guides and tips.


Royal Ascot Tuesday Race Cards

The opening race of the Royal meeting is the Queen Anne Stakes over a mile, which tends to involve the very best horses in Europe. Established all the way back in 1840, the race has been won by some stellar types over the years, including the legendary Frankel in 2012.

Second up is the Coventry Stakes, a Group 2 race over six furlongs for two-year-olds. The roll of honour contains some illustrious names, including Mill Reef (1970), Dawn Approach (2012) and Calyx (2018).

Third on the card is the King's Stand Stakes, a Group 1 contest for the sprinters over five furlongs. The very best speedsters from around the world come together to clash in this race, and 12 horses have won this race twice. Three have managed the feat this century; Equiano (2008 and 2010), Sole Power (2013 and 2014) and Blue Point (2018 and 2019).

Ascot Tips

Following the King's Stand Stakes is the third top level race of the day, the St James's Palace Stakes over a mile. This is for the classic generation of colts over a mile, and regularly features the main protagonists from the previous month's 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Some top-class three-year-olds have won this race in recent years, including Frankel (2011) and Kingman (2015) - with the former following up in the Queen Anne Stakes a year later.

The fifth race on the card is the Ascot Stakes, a Flat race over two and a half miles which is regularly won by National Hunt yards - with Willie Mullins triumphant in three of the last five renewals.

Finally, the last race on day one of the Royal meeting is the Wolferton Stakes, a listed race over a mile and a quarter. This year will be the third that the race will be run as a pattern race since being upgraded, and two classy types have won the race so far, in Monarchs Glen (2018) and Addeybb (2019).
