Ascot Racecourse May Racing Weekend

May Main Image

An action-packed couple of days at Ascot get underway on Friday 12th May, with the perfect combination of thrilling racing and an atmosphere made for socialising with friends.

Several competitive handicaps make up the card, promising a fantastic afternoon's racing as Ascot prepares for its flagship meeting, Royal Ascot.


The racecourse is resplendent at Ascot’s final fixture before the Royal Meeting. Gather your friends and family and enjoy an action-packed afternoon of socialising. 

The highlight of this two-day meeting is The Victoria Cup, a valuable seven-furlong heritage handicap that tends to attract proven course specialists and interesting, less exposed youngsters alike. 

Cape Byron was a memorable winner in 2019, going on to land The Wokingham Stakes a month later. It is likely that some of the 2023 participants will return to contest this, or another of Royal Ascot’s major handicaps.
