2009 Royal Ascot betting odds were widely available.

Can Yeats become the first ever horse to win the Ascot Gold Cup four times? That is the main question on most people's lips. Patkai and Geordieland are lining up behind him to steal his crown.  Yeats was the favorite at Sportingbet.com, with a payout potential of nearly US$200 for every US$100 bet.

Matt Boyle of Sky Sports writes:

"American trainer Wesley Ward has taken the meeting by storm with his juveniles and it would be a brave man to say his brilliant winning run will come to an end in the opening Norfolk Stakes with Yogaroo."

There is great value in Yeats nonetheless with the potential for nearly double the payout v. risk. Gambling911.com considers Yeats a "Value" bet on the day.

Patkai is another of the single digit favorites with a payout promise of US$350 on every US$100 bet.

The centrepiece of Ascot's year, Royal Ascot is one of the world's most famous race meetings[citation needed], and dates back to 1711. The Queen attends the meeting, arriving each day in a horse-drawn carriage. It is a major event in the British social calendar, and press coverage of the attendees and what they are wearing often exceeds coverage of the actual racing.

There are 16 Group races on offer, with at least one Group One event on each of the five days.
