Latest going, non-runners and key betting news

Royal Ascot: temperatures could reach 29C on day one
1 of 1

It's here. Day one of Royal Ascot promises to be a cracker with sun glasses and sun cream the order with temperatures set to peak at 29C.

There was disappointing news this morning as it emerged Frankie Dettori will miss all five days due to an arm injury, but the show goes on nonetheless.

All six races from the Berkshire track today are shown live on ITV, with the Opening Show previewing the action on ITV4 at 10am and the afternoon coverage beginning on the main channel at 1.30.

The six races, which include three Group 1 contests, will also be televised on Racing UK with the feature £400,000 St James’s Palace Stakes taking place at 4.20, when 2,000 Guineas winner Churchill takes on Guineas second Barney Roy.

A 19-runner 2m4f Ascot Stakes (5.00) and 24-runner 5f Windsor Castle Stakes (5.35) ensures there is something for everyone on day one, and if you’re more of a jump racing fan, you can watch the action from Stratford this afternoon on At The Races.

Latest from the track

Clerk of the course Chris Stickels gave an update on the ground, which remains good to firm, good in places.

Stickels said: "It's sunny and hot this morning and we expect temperatures to reach 29C. The forecast is for more warm weather on Wednesday then it should cool on Thursday with the possibility of the occasional shower."

Nick Smith, director of racing and communications at Ascot, hinted this morning at a potential easing of the dress code if temperatures reach 30C, while reassuring racegoers that security is of the utmost importance across the five-day meeting.

Smith said on Sky Sports: "People’s welfare is very important and so is the dress code at the meeting too - we expect people to turn up and wear what they’re supposed to wear in relative to the enclosure they’re in. If the temperatures push up to the high 20s or maybe even 30s today we may relax the dress code slightly.

"Security has been extremely high on our agenda for a matter of weeks, and even months. Every time you turn the television on lately there has been another atrocity - it’s been terrible to watch. We’re trying to reassure people really - Royal Ascot has always been a really high profile event - so we’re operating from a really high end security level anyway - but there will be more armed and uniformed police present."

There will be a minute's silence at the track following the Queen's arrival as a mark of respect in light of recent tragic events across Britain.

If the temperatures push up to the high 20s or maybe even 30s today we may relax the dress code slightly
