Royal Ascot will welcome British racing's biggest crowd for 15 months as the five-day meeting starts on Tuesday. The Queen could attend on the opening day, with 12, spectators allowed daily as part of a test event. Palace Pier, the mount of Frankie Dettori, and Battaash are among the equine stars in action on Tuesday. Meanwhile, jump racing trailblazer Rachael Blackmore - the first female jockey to win the Grand National in April - will have her first ride at the flat racing showpiece.

The meeting starts with three top-level Group One races on the opening day. Anticipation is high with the biggest British racing fixtures since the Cheltenham Festival in March - including Ascot a year ago - held without spectators because of the coronavirus pandemic. Racegoers must provide negative Covid tests to gain admission as the meeting follows England's cricket match against New Zealand as a pilot event for welcoming back crowds to sporting events.

Many of those will be in the Royal Enclosure, where top hat and tails remains part of the dress code for men. In an interview with the Irish Independent, external-link the year-old said there would be "a Lance Armstrong" in Irish racing and he knew who the drug cheats were. As the piece was written by Paul Kimmage, who helped expose cyclist Armstrong as a drugs cheat, there is likely to be more to follow on this. Last year he partnered Royal Ascot's longest-priced winner, chance Nando Parradoand in sealed a remarkable Group One double shortly after partner Megan gave birth to their son Charlie.

It was a fantastic week. Tall for a flat jockey, at nearly 6ft, keeping his weight down is a constant challenge, but he is not letting up. You never know, I might win another one yet," he said.

Dettori starts favourite to be leading jockey at the fixture for the third year running. He will be confident of adding to his tally of 73 Royal Ascot triumphs, and hoping Stradivarius can emulate Yeats by winning a fourth Gold Cup. Lord North won the race 12 months ago for the Gosden team, while the reappearance of last season's 1, Guineas and Oaks winner Love is eagerly awaited. This will be the first Royal meeting since the Duke of Edinburgh died two months ago. It is unclear whether the Queen will attend the opening day, where she has an outside chance in the King's Stand with her horse King's Lynn.

As you know, she's a fanatic about racing, watching racing and breeding horses, and has been going to Ascot all of her adult life," her racing manager John Warren told BBC Radio Four. He said Tactical in the Jersey Stakes on Saturday might be the best chance of a Royal winner this week.
