Royal Ascot Favourites | What To Expect From Ascot 2021

It’s been a challenging year for horse racing the last one, but 2021 sees the sport rising from its ashes. The Royal Ascot is waiting to surprise enthusiasts with some of the best horses. But who are the Royal Ascot favourites? What to expect from Ascot 2021? Let’s find it out.

Stradivarius

  • 7 years’ old
  • Trained by John Gosden

Stradivarius is no longer one of Ascot’s best kept secrets. The horse has won the race’s Gold Cup in 2018, 2019, and 2020, as well as the Queen Vase in 2017. Still in its prime age, with a top-notch trainer and Frankie Dettori as a jockey, Stradivarius is the hottest Ascot favourite in 2021.

Battaash

  • 5 years’ old
  • Trained by Charles Hills

Runner up of the King’s Stand in 2018 and 2019, and the winner of the race in 2020, Battaash is a firm favourite at Ascot 2021. This year, the stallion is expected to defend his title on the King’s Stand Stakes. Two years younger than Stradivarius, Battaash is expected to remain a favourite for long if the performance this year is good.

Palace Pier

  • 4 years’ old
  • Trained by John Gosden

If Stradivarius wasn’t proof enough of Gosden’s worth as a trainer, then Palace Pier might prove it. Three years younger than the absolute favourite, Palace Pier is a promising horse. It has won the St James’s Palace Stakes last year – under Stradivarius’ jockey, Frankie Dettori. The victory may seem like a drop in the ocean, but there is no insider who doesn’t know this horse’s talent.

Lord North

  • 5 years’ old
  • Trained by John Gosden

Another name associated with Gosden, Lord North has proven his name’s worth last year at the Prince of Wales’ Stakes. A true middle-distance performer, it is expected to see him attempt to secure the first multiple title of the new millennium at the Prince of Wales’ Stakes at the Royal Ascot 2021. This performance was last achieved in 1995, so history might just be ready to repeat itself this year.

Campanelle

  • 3 years’ old
  • Trained by Wesley Ward

The winner of Queen Mary Stakes last year, Campanelle is another sought-after name in this year’s list of Royal Ascot favourites. The main difference between Campanelle and most of the other favourites of the race is that this horse is American-trained.

Sure, there are many other Royal Ascot favourites to look after in 2021. Make sure to stay up to date with the latest horse racing betting news if you don’t want the commencement of the races on the 15th of June to catch you by surprise. In this way, you can rest assured you’ll always know which is the best horse to bet your money on.
