How to watch Royal Ascot 2020 live: day 4 stream, race card and TV guide. It's been a big week for semi-normality in the United Kingdom, with live sport creeping back into action by way of the Premier League restart and Royal Ascot horse racing. The latter is one of the highlights of the Great British summer, so while it's the first ever Royal Ascot to be held without spectators, the marquee event still features first-class races. Read on as our guide explains how to watch Royal Ascot live and stream every day 4 race online.

Friday is day 4 at Royal Ascot and it's got a tough act to follow after Stradivarius - ridden by irrepressible jockey Frankie Dettori - took home its third Gold Cup. It's a feat only two other horses have ever accomplished and the margin of Stradivarius' victory was testament to what a one-in-a-lifetime horse he is.

We've got the full Royal Ascot 2020 schedule and race card below, but first, follow our guide as we explain how to watch Royal Ascot 2020 in the UK and live stream every day 4 race no matter where you are right now.
