Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot is one of the grandest race meetings of the year and also a great social event. As much attention is paid to the fashions being worn as to the horses in the paddock.

The Queen generally leads a procession from Windsor Castle to the course and one of the most enduring images of the meeting is the colourful and extravagant array of hats worn by the ladies - ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.

While the racing is at times overshadowed by the grandeur of the occasion, it remains of the highest quality. The best of the races is the Gold Cup, run on Ladies Day (Thursday). Keep an eye on the names of the owners on the race card as the Queen usually runs some of her best horses at this meeting.

If having a flutter on the racing doesn't take your fancy, there are other bets on offer throughout the meet. Bookies take bets on the colour of the Queen's hat on Gold Cup Day. In 2009 Her Majesty opted for a white hat, initially quoted at odds of 20-1.
