Royal Ascot was a bumper year for punters last year. The event drained profits from William Hill who lost £4m on the event as a whole. A torrent of winning favourites during the five day event caused this pain for the bookmaker. From June 14th to June 18th, 17 group races over 5 days certainly gives Ascot enthusiasts something to get excited about. So what does Royal Ascot offer punters in 2011? First off, and understandably, William Hill may be a lot more cautious for 2011’s Ascot Race meeting. After loosing money on favourites last year remember to compare their odds against favourites at other bookmakers. Royal Ascot is well known in the racing world that favourites can run better than expected…. great for us punters.
