King George Weekend Trends and Statistics
A deeper analysis of the trends and statistics for the King George shows that, surprisingly, you need to go back to 2001 to find the last Derby winner to go onto success in the race. In fact, only three horses from the classic generation have been successful in the last decade.
The fillies Enable and Taghrooda were both Oaks winners, whilst the 2011 winner Nathaniel had previously been successful in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Another interesting statistic is that the 2018 King George race winner Poet’s Word was the first five-year-old to win the King George since 1999. That means that four-year-olds have the best recent record in the race with six wins in the last 10-years.
Horses trained by Sir Michael Stoute and John Gosden are always worth considering, with both trainers winning three editions in the last decade.
As the last 10 winners have all been returned at odds of 13/2 or lower, it’s easy to see why the King George is popular with punters.
JGR Brown Jack Handicap Trends and Statistics
Recent winners of the JGR Brown Jack Handicap have all been returned at odds of 3/1 or less, which means this is normally another punter-friendly race.
Typical winners have either been three-year-olds carrying below 8-7 or four-year-olds carrying between 9-4 and 9-12.
Another useful pointer is that the last five successful horses have all run between seven and 31 days prior to victory. Silvestre De Sousa is a jockey to watch out for as he rode both the 2014 and 2017 winners.
King George Weekend Free Bets and Betting Offers
As the King George and Queen Elizabeth Stakes is one of the highlights of the English flat season, bookmakers normally offer a variety of promotions and concessions to attract your business.
You can look forward to new player incentives such as welcome bonuses and free bets, which are an ideal way to boost your balance for the King George Weekend.
Another common sign-up offer will be enhanced King George betting odds for a popular horse to win. You could get big odds on a short-priced selection that has a fantastic chance of winning. You’ll only be able to place a limited stake at these odds, but it’s well worth wagering if you are eligible.
Other concessions to consider include best odds guaranteed. If your horse wins at a bigger price than the one on your betting slip, this means your bet will be paid out at the higher odds.
If you like to bet each-way, keep an eye out for enhanced place terms that could mean you’ll win if your horse finishes fourth or fifth in a race where many bookmakers may only be paying out on three places.

King George Weekend Tickets and Hospitality
If you’re thinking about attending this prestigious meeting, it’s always a good idea to check the King George weekend dress code first. Some of the cheaper tickets start from as little as £15 and dress in these sections is quite relaxed.
But, if you’ve spent up to £300 on tickets to enjoy being wined and dined in style, make sure you’re wearing the correct attire for the area you’ve booked.
If this is your introduction to horse racing, and you’re in any doubt about what to wear, always dress up at Ascot. In general, horse racing is always a resplendent occasion where many visitors dress to impress.
Men will be required to wear a jacket and tie in many areas. Ladies are also encouraged to wear a hat, but this isn’t compulsory as it is in many areas at the Royal Ascot Meeting.
If you’re driving to Ascot, make sure you book your King George weekend parking early as the limited spaces are normally in hot demand.

Some races are run on a straight track, which is a track without any bends.
All races run around a bend at Ascot are run right-handed, which means horses are asked to race clockwise.
