Royal Ascot Betting Types
Everyone who is considering betting on Ascot should know what types of bets are available. Bets which are specific to this horse racing event. We will help you out by explaining the most popular bet types, so keep on reading.
Wins, Place bets, Each-way bets, Futures
The easiest bet to understand is the win bet. You are placing your bet on a horse to win, and if he doesn’t, you lose your stake. With a place bet, you wager on a horse to finish the race either as the winner, or second or third.
We can say that an each-way bet combines these both. Half of your bet goes on a win, and half of it on a horse to place.
Futures bets are those that you can place months, weeks and days ahead of the race. The benefits of placing futures are odds which are both fixed and quite often more than generous.
Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta
When you are placing a quinella, you are predicting which two horses are going to be the first two finishers. An exacta lets you pick two horses that are going to finish first and second in a specified order.
If you feel like you can guess the first three finishers in the correct order, you can place a trifecta. It is one of the most popular Royal Ascot bets.
First four, Quadrella, Treble, Double
Punters experienced in Royal Ascot betting might consider placing a first four bet. All you need to do is choose the four horses that are going to finish in the top four. They also need to finish in an order that you have bet.
Another bet involving four horses is a quadrella or a quaddie. This time you are selecting four winners who you believe are going to win in four nominated races.
On the other hand, a treble is an accumulator bet made up of three selections. All of them have to win if you want to receive winnings. If the first leg of this bet wins, the returns move to the second leg as the stake. If it wins as well, the returns move onto the third leg as the stake.
A double bet is similar, only it involves betting on two selections that have to win instead of on three in a treble bet.
Totepools and Placepots
Totepool betting differs from betting with fixed odds. The difference lies in the fact that the total amount you can win depends on the entire amount wagered on the race and on a certain horse to win. Another name for this type of betting is parimutuel betting.
When it comes to placepots, things can get rather tricky. But this bet is simpler than it may seem at first. If you want to participate in the placepot pool, you need to make a selection of horses you believe are going to place across six selections.
This means that you choose a minimum of one horse from each of these six races you believe will finish in one of the first four positions.
Royal Ascot Tote Superpools
For every race at Royal Ascot, Tote customers will be betting into Tote Superpools. This is a new concept from Tote.co.uk set to revolutionise tote betting across the world. Tote Superpools are the same as the super-sized pools generated between international pool betting operators for major race meetings.
Tote.co.uk are partnering with Hong Kong Jockey Club and Ascot Racecourse to create this years’ Tote Superpool for Tote customers at Royal Ascot 2022.
Royal Ascot Survivor Bets
There are many ways to maximise your Royal Ascot betting experience; however, the ‘Survivor’ bet has proven to be one of the most popular. This is a unique totepool bet that was created by AscotBet in 2018.
In essence, it’s a knockout bet, where the last punter (or punters) standing scoops the pot.
To get started with an Ascot Survivor bet, you must select the horses that you think will win the day’s races. Once you’ve added your stake and the bet has been accepted, then your name is in the pot. With each race, punters are eliminated if selection didn’t win. The final dividend is paid out to the punters who bagged all the winners.
Royal Ascot Ante Post Betting
With the clock ticking down to the start of this year’s meeting, the Royal Ascot ante post betting markets are starting to heat up nicely. The impressive King of Change leads the Royal Ascot betting in the Queen Anne Stakes followed by Circus Maximus.
Also, on Tuesday, is the King’s Stand Stakes. He’s hard to look past Battaash for this one. Several bookies have him priced as low as 2/1 already, with the price expected to shorten further as we approach the off.
According to the ante post markets, the Ascot Gold Cup is going to be a shoot-out between Stradivarius (currently 3/2) and Kew Gardens (4/1). The next closest horse in the betting is Dee Ex Bee at 12/1. This looks like a perfect each-way market with so much value offered outside of the top two.
Royal Ascot Tips
If you are interested in Royal Ascot betting, you could probably use a tip or two. One of the most important races that attracts lots of Royal Ascot bets is the Gold Cup.
Stradivarius, the back-to-back winner both in 2018 and 2019, is the biggest candidate for yet another win in 2020. He will only be six at the time so everyone is eager to see whether he can bag a hat-trick to equal Sagaro’s record from 1975-1977.
This would mean that he will be only one more victory away from reaching the legendary status of Yeats, the only horse to win the Gold Cup four years in a row (2006-2009).
Other notable favourites, as far as betting Royal Ascot is concerned, are; Cross Counter (the Melbourne Cup 2018 winner) and Technician (Prix Royal-Oak winner 2019).
