2024 Prince of Wales Stakes Betting Odds at Ascot racecourse

Wednesday, 19 June 2024

The Prince of Wales’s Stakes takes place on Wednesday 19 June, with Passenger almost certain to go off favourite for this encounter. The four-year-old has triumphed on his past two encounters, with Sir Michael Stoute’s charge having won at Chester in May after previously winning at Windsor in August.

White Birch has recorded a succession of victories this season and John Joseph Murphy will hope that his horse can continue a winning streak, with Auguste Rodin and Inspiral having a lively each-way chance based on their previous achievements. It will be interesting to see how the betting market pans out as we get closer to the off.

2024 Prince of Wales’s Stakes Tips

Passenger has been installed as the favourite to win the Prince of Wales’s Stakes and the market leader could definitely be the one to beat. The four-year-old has an official rating of 111 and there was plenty to like about his performance at Chester in May when triumphing in the Huxley Stakes over one mile, two and a half furlongs.

There was previously a success in the Winter Hill Stakes at Windsor, with a nice success coming in a Group 3 encounter when the horse was able to edge past odds-on favourite West Wind Blows. The same horse also ran in last year’s Betfred Derby although the runner was only able to finish twelfth in that race.

Perhaps White Birch is a viable alternative, with John Joseph Murphy’s runner having secured a hat-trick of wins and they were all achieved at the Curragh. The most recent of these came in the Tattersalls Gold Cup over one mile, two and a half furlongs in a Group One encounter where a three-length triumph was achieved over Auguste Rodin.

Previously to this, there was a success in the Mooresbridge Stakes and the horse was able to achieve a four-length victory on that occasion. That came after winning the Alleged Stakes over one mile and two furlongs. Auguste Rodin runs for Aidan O’Brien and it will also be interesting to see whether Inspiral lines up for this encounter.
