About the Royal Hunt Cup
The Royal Hunt Cup is Royal Ascot’s signature 1 mile handicap race. While you won’t find top class horses on display in this race, it’s an opportunity to get the kind of value that only handicap markets offer. The race’s popularity extends to trainers and racehorse owners, thanks to the substantial purse on offer, which eclipses the purse offered by many higher rated races at the meeting.
Betting on the Royal Hunt Cup
The handicappers do a solid job on the Royal Hunt Cup, and this race is as open as they come. Winners are frequently priced over 20/1, and if you’re happy to take on a liability at high odds, this is a good race to lay the favourite at a betting exchange. If not, you’re best served picking horses comfortable with their weight and race day conditions.
