New running order revealed for Royal Ascot in 2020

Extra six races added to the meeting - and they will all be live on Sky Sports Racing.

Ascot racecourse have revealed a new running order for the 2020 Royal Ascot, which will be run behind closed doors from 16-20 June, with every race live on Sky Sports Racing.

Six extra races have been added to the meeting - bringing the total to 36 - including a silver version of the Royal Hunt Cup and Wokingham Stakes and the return of the Buckingham Palace Handicap, which will raise the curtain on the meeting.

The first four days will each stage seven races, with the meeting ending with an eight-race card on the Saturday.

The St James's Palace Stakes and the Coronation Stakes move to the Saturday in order to maximise the space between those races and the 1000 and 2000 Guineas, whilst the King Edward VII Stakes and Ribblesdale Stakes, both potentially significant stepping stones to this year's Derby and Oaks will be run on the opening day to maximise the gap between Royal Ascot and Epsom.

Four of the six two-year-old races will be run on the last two days.
