Horse Racing returns: Revised June schedule including Ascot and the Guineas

horse racing return

Horse racing is set to return on Monday! Great news, even if it is behind closed doors. Here’s a look at the feast of racing we have to look forward to over the coming weeks.

When will horse racing return?

We’ve not had horse racing since March 18th in Britain and none from Ireland since March 24th. Thankfully it is now set to return on June 1st with Irish racing coming back a week later on the 8th. 

Newcastle kicks us off and then we’ll have two meetings a day, until we reach the blockbuster first weekend. There will be 3 meetings on both Saturday and Sunday with the highlights being the 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas from Newmarket!

The 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas 

Next Saturday (June 6th) brings us the first Classic of the delayed season. We have never waited as long for the re-emergence of a potential superstar to the Classic stage.

Pinatubo is quoted at a best price 10/11 to extend his unbeaten run to 7, pick up the 2,000 Guineas and start his 3 year old campaign with a bang as well as enhance his chances of a successful trip to Epsom for the Derby.

Sunday (June 7th) brings us the 1,000 Guineas. This is a wide open affair with Quadrilateral heading the market at a best priced 7/2.

Sunday also brings us the relocated Group 3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes from Haydock to round off a great weekend of racing. 

Is Ascot going ahead?

If that wasn’t enough to get us back into the swing of things, Ascot have unveiled an extra 6 races for us at the Royal meeting (June 16th-20th).

There will be seven races staged on the first four days, with eight on the Saturday. The high quality action is going to be coming thick and fast!

Our Pros are itching to get back in the game so hit the button and see where the money is going.
