Betting Offers for Royal Ascot

Horse Racing

Royal Ascot is a celebration of horse racing - with tradition, fashion, style, and of course one of the most beautiful racecourses in the world. It's simply a racing fans dream; with up to eighteen 'Group' races over five days and more than £4.5 million in prize money on offer.

What better way to make use of some of the free bets that are around at the moment than to have a flutter on this historic racing event? With so many free bets available at online bookies everyone can enjoy a day at the races from the comfort of their own home.

Royal Ascot Racecourse

Ascot Racecourse was founded over 300 years ago by Queen Anne. The first race, 'Her Majesty's Plate', was held on August 11th back in 1711.

Whilst there was plenty of betting back then there were no betting offers as there are today. These days, the highlight Royal Ascot, perhaps Europe's most famous race meeting.

Over 300,000 people visit the course during Royal Ascot week, making this Europe's best-attended race meeting and one of the most bet on racing events of the year.

There's plenty of opportunity to use free bets, and with so many group races, and at least one Group One event for you to use your free bet on each of the five racing days, there's plenty of options.

It's a right royal event, with Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the Royal Family attending. Even the names of the races are bound up in majesty: The Queen Anne Stakes, The Prince of Wales Stakes, The Coronation Stakes, even The Duke of Edinburgh Stakes - all proclaim Royal Ascot as more than just another race meeting.

The Highlight Of Royal Ascot

For many, the highlight of the week is the Gold Cup, one of the most prestigious horse races in the world. Held on Ascot's famous Ladies' Day on Thursday, there's over £3 million of prize money on offer and more than just a few hats in sight.

Whilst you may not be able to use free bets to bet on the most flamboyant or ridiculous hat, the best bookies will certainly take bets using the free bets on offer to new account holders.

Of course, you don't have to be in one of the three enclosures to enjoy the event or use free bets or bookies betting offers. Royal Ascot is one of the most televised race meets each year, with both traditional and on-line media giving it wall-to-wall coverage.

It's never easy to pick a winner, and surprises are always just around the corner, but the age of the horse, the trainer and jockey, the going on the day, and - most importantly - the horse's form can all help you to make the best use of free bets and bookie offers.

If you want to get into detail, 'trends analysis' can be one way to go - research the race history, identify strong trends, and identify the horse that most closely matches the race 'winners profile'.

Of course you may prefer a list of the runners and a pin. Either way, there are plenty of free bet offers to help you maximise your winnings and minimise your losses.

Introductory, cash back, bonuses of all types - with such a great range of free bet offers to be had, there's no reason why Royal Ascot shouldn't be a memorable occasion; even if you don't hold a much sought-after badge for that fabled Royal Enclosure.
