Gold Cup Day

Bet on the Ascot Gold Cup 2018 with William Hill

Gold Cup Day 23rd June

Gold Cup Day at the Royal Meeting is very much peak Royal Ascot. Not only is the main race of the day the blue riband race of the five days of festivities, but it’s Ladies Day to boot.

Serious punters can scarcely see the bookies odds on display down by the rails for fascinators, handbags and high fashion. More likely than not, Gok Wan will be on hand to run his trained eye over the haute couture for a TV broadcaster, but Gok is also known to be a bit of a Royal Ascot betting maestro.

On the track the Norfolk Stakes gets the racing going, followed by the Hampton Court Stakes, before the Ribblesdale Stakes leads into the main race of Day 3, the Ascot Gold Cup.

A stayers contest run over 2m4f, it usually produces thrilling finishes and anointed one of the most popular winners of recent years, when won by Estimate, trained by Sir Michael Stoute and owned Queen Elizabeth the second. The colt had been a birthday present to Her Majesty from renowned owner breeder The Aga Khan.

That win was a rare break in Aidan O’Brien’s dominance of the race, as the Ballydoyle trainer has won the race seven times since 2006, including four successive victories with the legendary Yeats.

Once again two top-drawer handicaps, the Britannia over a mile and the King George V Stakes round out the action, with ample betting opportunities for those looking to back one at working man’s price.
