Royal Ascot Preview Evening

A Virtual Royal Ascot Preview Evening Sponsored by Sporting Life

11th June 2020

Johnny Murtagh joins the panel for our virtual Royal Ascot Preview Evening this Thursday 11th June at 7:30pm

Following the return of racing to the UK this month, Racing Welfare is delighted to announce its virtual Royal Ascot Preview Evening, in association with Sporting Life. The event will be broadcast live on the internet for ticket holders and is set to be hosted by Racing TV’s Nick Luck.

Hear the thoughts of a stellar panel of racing personalities, including one of the most successful flat jockeys of all time, Johnny Murtagh, Champion Trainer John Gosden, Racing TV expert Lydia Hislop and Sporting Life’s Head Tipster Ben Linfoot, as they look forward to the highlight of the British Flat season, Royal Ascot. Michael Shinners, Sky Bet’s Head of Sports PR, has also been named amongst the panellists to provide an up-to-date view on the market. With the full line up set to be announced later in the week, expect lively debate plus the opportunity to put your questions to the panel.

Although happening behind closed doors, Royal Ascot is a feast for racing fans, with 36 races scheduled to take place across 5 days starting on Tuesday 16th June. Featuring the usual mix of outstanding Group action and some of the most competitive handicaps of the year, it will surely be another unmissable renewal of the meeting.

Our expert panel, all of whom have generously donated their time, will help to set the scene and mark the cards of our audience. The event is limited to just 1,000 tickets so don’t hang around, purchase your place today.

The event is being presented in association with Sporting Life, with each of the panel being given £100 charity bets courtesy of the sponsor. All winning returns go to Racing Welfare.

Tickets for the event are just £10 and everyone who purchases a ticket will automatically be entered into a raffle for the chance to win four Queen Anne enclosure tickets for Royal Ascot 2021, courtesy of Ascot Racecourse. All ticket revenue will go straight to Racing Welfare.

Ticket holders will also be sent a digital brochure in advance of the evening, featuring exclusive content from Donn McClean on the Irish challenge as well as a guide for the preview event.
