Royal Ascot: Day one package

  • Last Updated: June 17 2014, 0:01 BST

As ever Royal Ascot opens with a bang on Tuesday – and we’ve all the angles covered ahead of a wonderful day of racing.

Toronado will go off a red-hot market leader for the opening Queen Anne Stakes and our betting partners Sky Bet are offering money back as a free bet if the favourite wins the first race.

We have the verdicts of the trainers ahead of the Group One contest along with the Coventry, King’s Stand and St James’s Palace which features a mouthwatering rematch between Kingman and Night Of Thunder.

Ben Linfoot heads our tipping team with his Value Bet selections for Tuesday, Ian Ogg has penned horse-by-horse guides to both the St James’s Palace and Queen Anne plus a day one stats guide, Man On The Spot has a verdict for each race and Nick Robson a tip for every race at Royal Ascot – and every other meeting on Tuesday.

Graham Cunningham answered the 20 big questions ahead of the showcase in an unmissable column, Donn McClean has five Irish horses to follow, and Timeform have some interesting opinions on the three Group One features.

If you missed Monday’s live chat with our racing team you can replay it now for their thoughts while the Royal Ascot podcast is still available to get you in the mood for the four days. The Catching Pigeons team are back too with all the hot gossip and gallops reports.

Throw in full racecards and form, free UK and Irish video form and our unrivalled My Stable tracking service and you have no reason to go anywhere else for Royal Ascot 2014!
