Setting the Scene

Just two of seven Royal Ascot winners on Wednesday paid less than $20, showcasing the wide-open nature of these phenomenal races. All but one of Wednesday’s seven $1 Trifectas paid less than $900, making it one of the most lucrative meets of the year. Friday’s marquee event is the Group I Coronation, with Aidan O’Brien’s #5 OPERA SINGER (3/2) clashing with 1000 Guineas winner #3 ELMALKA (7/2) and Godolphin’s undefeated #2 DEVOTED QUEEN (10/1) over one-mile. In the six-furlong Gr I Commonwealth Cup, #4 INISHERIN (5/2) is a tepid favorite in a big field that could produce fireworks at the windows.

American Runners

The American contingent continues to be shutout on the Ascot stage this year, with Gabaldon’s strong second-place-finish in Wednesday’s Windsor Castle Stakes a lone bright spot. Wesley Ward’s #1 BURNING PINE (10/1) is set to race in Friday’s opener, the Gr III Albany. She was untouchable in her career debut at Keeneland, but the water is much deeper here.
