Royal Ascot 2017 will take place this week (20-24 June) with live TV coverage on ITV.

ITV Racing is covering the most glamorous event in flat racing for the first time ever, with six live races on each of the five days, including the highlight of the week, Thursday’s Gold Cup.

Live coverage of Royal Ascot continues a fantastic month of flat racing on ITV, having featured the Epsom Derby Festival earlier in June.

Ed Chamberlin and Francesca Cumani will host the Royal Ascot meeting live from the Berkshire racecourse with expert analysis from Sir AP McCoy, Jason Weaver, Hayley Turner and special guest Johnny Murtagh, with on-course reporting from Oli Bell.

The Opening Show, presented by Oli, will air at 10am from Tuesday to Friday on ITV4 and at 9.25am on ITV on Saturday to preview the day’s action.

    Congratulations to the ITV racing team. Fantastic coverage of Royal Ascot. Great blend of presenters all compliment each other with their individual styles. Great to see the presenters outdoors in the thick of the action not stuck in some dolled up porta cabin. loved the aerial view from camera on the zip wire. Excellent insight down at the start with Luke (loved the trainers) and chappy in the ring giving the bookies at bit of stick. Again well done all involved.
