The Royal Ascot meeting is an annual event probably best known for one of its regular attendees, that being HM the Queen. In fact, most betting sites will be offering a market on which you can guess what colour the Queen’s outfit will be each day!
But it is true to say that most punters will be interested in betting on some of the horses running at this meeting, but one bet that is popular with many people is the Royal Ascot Top Jockey bet on which you have to try and predict which jockey will have to most winning rides during the course of the meeting.
It will only take a good run of luck for one of the lesser fancied jockeys to become firm favourite to win that title, however in the run up to the meeting there are currently a set of odds on all of the leading jockeys and the ones that are much more likely to win that title
The two jockeys that all bookies think have the best chance of being the top jockey at Royal Ascot this year are Ryan Moore who is currently the 4/6 firm favourite to do so, and also Frankie Dettori who is on offer at odds of 9/4.
If you do think either of them are going to win the title this year, then the sooner you get your money down and your bets placed the better, for if either of those two jockeys do run to their very best form and win lots of races from the get go, their respective odds are going to drop even more!
Could the Top Jockey be James Doyle?
If you can looking further than the two jockeys I have mentioned up above then there is some tremendous value to be had by betting on some of the other ones, and one jockey that could have all the luck in the world at Royal Ascot this year is James Doyle who is on offer at odds of 10/1 to be the top jockey at this world famous meeting this year.
Another young jockey who has an excellent track record for winning races, both high profile ones and run of the mill ones is of course William Buick, and I would never underestimate his chances of having the most winning rides at Royal Ascot this year, and if you do fancy his chances and fancy having a bet on him his odds of doing so are also 10/1!
Outsiders to be Crowned Top Jockey at Royal Ascot
Let me now quickly give you an insight and overview of some of the other jockeys that could be crowned top jockey at the Royal Ascot meeting and their respective odds too. Both Andrea Atzeni and Donnacha O’Brien are on offer at odds of 20/ and Oisin Murphy and Jim Crowley can be bet on at odds of 25/1.
Adam Kirby and Jamie Spence are in view a chance but an albeit small one and their odds are both 33/1, however two jockeys that are available at huge odds are Seamie Heffernan and Silvestre De Sousa and you will find plenty of betting sites offering you odds of 66/1 on both of them!
