Royal Ascot radio coverage: How to listen to Royal Ascot live on the radio


Royal Ascot provides five days of high drama this week, starting with Tuesday’s Queen Anne Stakes and ending with the last race on Saturday, The Queen Alexandra Stakes.

The meeting is among the most prestigious horse racing events of the year and attracts thousands of fans, including the Royal Family, to the Berkshire grandstand.

Although Ascot is known as one of the most glamorous events on the racing calendar, it also delivers in terms of quality.

Opening race the King’s Stand Stakes features a hard-to-pick contest between last year’s winner Blue Point, Battaash and Mabs Cross.

Too Darn Hot is one of the favourites for the St James’s Palace Stakes but Phoenix of Spain, who won the Irish 2,000 Guineas, is being strongly backed.
