Royal Ascot with Andrew Balding

Well hasn’t it come around quickly? This year’s Royal Ascot is now upon us. The fabulous five day event as always promises to be a heady mix of top racing action, high fashion and class. Commencing on Tuesday 14th June until 18th of the same month, excited racing fans will be heading to Ascot, Berkshire, in their droves as well of tuning in across the nation (with UK TV audiences approaching 2 million) and indeed the world. Thursday 16th is the cherry on the cake, as it’s Ladies Day, and the fashions on display from wild to wonderful really add to the sense of occasion.

One person more excited than many at Royal Ascot has to be trainer Andrew Balding. In 2021 he had no shortage of winners (4) which made it his most successful display yet. With such high hopes for 2022 and an upcoming documentary in the pipeline, in the above Betway Insider (who is an Ambassador for Betway) interview Andrew offers up an assessment of his 2021 performance, hopes for 2022 and comments of those oh so pertinent (Jubilee!) to our times Royal connections – the prospect of training a winner for the Queen.
