Royal Ascot 2018 Live™ Stream Online. ITV Channel will cover each of the six races on the opening day of Royal Ascot on Tuesday. It’s Royal Ascot 2018, the finest week in the flat racing calendar. The finest but, from a wagering perspective, very far from the easiest. It’s a meeting which, as a consequence of one too many bloody reversals, I personally take fairly lightly, and the following ruminations should be consumed in that context. So keep watching and enjoy the day.

With Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family present, the last thing Ascot, or horse racing in general, needs is fighting among the finery. Up to 300,000 people are expected to attend the five-day meeting, and security measures include more than 100 trained personnel, incident spotters and sniffer dogs alongside the usual contingent of armed police. Anyone found with illegal drugs will be refused entry or expelled.

The practice of roaming beer hawkers selling alcohol in the stands will be stopped and breath testing will be employed on entry for those showing “overt” signs of inebriation. Royal Ascot’s stringent dress code will remain the same, with the addition that men must wear socks that “should cover the ankle.“We want all guests to feel comforted and reassured and we believe that the combination of armed police, patrol dogs and high-level security will provide this,” said Guy Henderson, chief executive of Ascot Racecourse.
