Royal Ascot 2013 (June 18 – 22) not only offers five days of world-class thoroughbred racing at one of the most historic venues in the sport, but is also a highlight of both the British social and fashion calendars.

Top-class local horses from Britain, Ireland, France and Germany, as well as others from the US and as far away as Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, converge on the Berkshire track with their owners and trainers hoping to experience the thrill of winning a Royal Ascot race.

From the opening event on Day One, the one mile Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes, to the marathon Group 1 Ascot Gold Cup on the Thursday of the fixture and the Group 1 six furlong Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the fifth and final day of the meeting, there will be no shortage of tremendous competition and tempting betting opportunities for racing fans across the globe to savour.
