Royal Ascot Bookmaker astonished by lack of Class 6 racing

Betting giant hits out at ‘Class 1 rubbish’ where everyone is trying

Betting giant Mugbet has hit out at the astonishing lack of diversity among this week’s Royal Ascot equine talent.

With 36 races over five days at the Royal Meeting, the lack of Class 6 opportunities has the Kent-based bookmaker fretting.

Mugbet's director of communications, Keith Vim, said on the television channel his firm sponsors:“How am I supposed to make a living off this stuff? Everyone’s trying!

“I find it strange that we can’t make the Buckingham Palace Handicap a Claimer, or the King’s Stand a Banded race.

Describing the annual 5-day meeting which hosts 18 Group races (the highest quality Flat races) with its lack of low grade betting opportunities, as a ‘f*cking outrage’ Vim was in disbelief:

“I bet Her Majesty would love to see a Class 7 Seller sandwiched in between the Ribblesdale and the King Edward.

“No one’s asked maam if she would like to dig up the turf and put down an All Weather surface, I’m sure she’d agree.”

Trainer Alf Archer who saddles 19 of the 21 runners for this year’s Scutter Stakes said: “Keith needn’t worry, we’ll win with our 17th string that no one saw coming.

“It’s banded racing in all but name.”
