Commonwealth Cup Betting Odds Comparison - Ascot

17/06/2022 15:40:00

After three days of exciting horse racing at the Royal Ascot meeting, Day Four brings us plenty of more entertainment and that includes the Commonwealth Cup. Starting in 2015, this is a race which is run over six furlongs and that means a severe test of speed for the horses that line up in this encounter.

There is a purse of roughly £500,000 available and the lion’s share goes to the winner who commands around £300,000, with this race open to three-year-old horses and that can make things difficult when it comes to studying the latest form.

After all, there is only going to be a year’s worth of form providing that the runners were seen as two-year-olds, with a three pound weight allowance given to female horses and an interesting ten pound allowance provided for runners that travel from the Southern Hemisphere.

2021 Commonwealth Cup betting odds

The Commonwealth Cup is one of the leading races at the 2021 Royal Ascot horse racing meeting and it’s one of the newest encounters at the five-day event, having been inaugurated in 2015 and this will therefore be the seventh running of the race which looks to be a wide open encounter.

From an each-way betting point-of-view, there will be punters looking to get involved at the prices considering that the favourites are trading at betting odds of 7/1 or upwards and it’s worth shopping around to find a horse racing bookie who has the best value.

Campanelle Heads the Commonwealth Cup Betting Market

Campanelle is the bookie favourite for the 2021 Commonwealth Cup, with Wesley Ward having a potential superstar on his hands and the latest performance was fourth place in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf where jockey Frankie Dettori couldn’t get onside with the leading horses.

Previously to this, there was a six furlong victory in the Darley Prix Morny - Finale des Darley Series at Deauville and this high-class operator could be one to hit the frame, with the horse having also won at a Royal Ascot meeting when claiming the spoils in 2020 and this was a victory in the Queen Mary Stakes.

Who Are the Other Commonwealth Cup Favourites?

Alcohol Free runs for trainer Andrew Balding, with the three-year-old having won the Dubai Duty Free Stakes at Newbury this season and the horse was then sent off as the 5/2 joint-favourite for the 1,000 Guineas along with Santa Barbara, although it was Mother Earth who delivered the goods on that occasion.

Lucky Vega is another interesting runner, with the horse having run a credible third at the 2000 Guineas in Newmarket and this is likely to be another popular each-way wager, with Jessica Harrington’s horse coming incredibly close in this race and we’re expecting a big run on this occasion.

Shane Foley ran the horse really close in the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes when finishing second behind Supremacy in the six furlong encounter, with the only concern being that the horse might end up running close seconds and thirds rather than winning races.


The Commonwealth Cup 2020 Betting Odds

The betting market for the 2020 Commonwealth Cup is wide open, with Earthlight among the favourites and it’s easy to see why punters might take a shine to a three-year-old with plenty of experience under his belt.

The Andre Fabre-trained horse hasn’t been beaten since first being seen as a two-year-old, with the charge’s first four outings taking place in France where Earthlight scored a maiden win at Maisons-Laffitte before a hat-trick of victories at Deauville.

However, what has really stated his claim for a Royal Ascot win is a victory in the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket where Mickael Barzalona rode the horse to a convincing victory over six furlongs and on good ground.

Pierre Lapin is another interesting runner and this three-year-old has been more lightly raced so far during his career, with the Roger Varian-trained charge winning on his debut at Haydock in May before landing the spoils in the Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes later in the year.

It’s entirely possible that if Royal Ascot 2020 does go ahead, this will be the first outing of the season for virtually all of the runners lining up in the Commonwealth Cup and that includes Raffle Prize who had a promising 2019 as a two-year-old.

The Mark Johnston-trained horse ran six times last year and wasn’t out of the first two on any of his outings, with a second-placed finish behind Earthlight at Deauville suggesting that she could have a successful future career.

The Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes is a race for fillies, with Raffle Prize being sent off as the 10/11 favourite although Millisle was able to provide a shock at odds of 16/1 when it came to the September encounter and you can get roughly the same price about the filly obliging here.

The History of the Commonwealth Cup

As mentioned, this isn’t a race which has a big history due to the fact that the first running took place in 2015. The Commonwealth Cup was invented due to a series of changes that were being made to the programme of European sprint races and it’s the only Group 1 race in Great Britain which is exclusively for horses aged three.

Muhaarar was the inaugural winner of the racein 2015 and there have also been successes for Quiet Reflection, Caravaggio, Eqtidaar and Advertise. The latter was the fastest recorded victory since the Commonwealth Cup began and no trainer has won this encounter more than once.

Advertise was probably the most impressive winner of the race to date, with the horse also winning the Prix Maurice de Gheest and the Martyn Meade-trained charge had previously enjoyed successes in the July Stakes and the Phoenix Stakes as a two-year-old.
