Ascot Gold Cup Odds: Trueshan, Kyprios and Stradivarius battle it out for favouritism

Stradivarius bids for a fourth Gold Cup crown at Royal Ascot
Stradivarius bids for a fourth Gold Cup crown at Royal Ascot

One of the highlights of Royal Ascot is the Group 1 Gold Cup, which is the feature race on Thursday 16th June, and the 2022 contest is set to be one of the most competitive renewals in recent times as some star-studded stayers do battle in the marathon event. We take a look at the latest odds for the day three showpiece...

Three-times winner Stradivarius maybe in the twilight of his career now, but the eight-year-old is still performing at an extremely high level and he warmed up for the Gold Cup with an impressive length victory in the Group 2 Yorkshire Cup last month. Having bounded to glory in the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Gold Cup, the John & Thady Gosden-trained legend failed to fire in last year's renewal as he could only finish a well beaten fourth behind Subjectivist. However, having shown the fire still burns bright at York on his seasonal reappearance he will head to the Royal meeting a leading contender, and he is currently a 4/1 second favourite for the contest.

Challenging for favouritism is the Alan King-trained Trueshan and Aidan O'Brien's Kyprios, who both sit at 7/2, and both will be huge players if lining up. The former has notched up four wins in his last four races and ended last season with taking victories in the Group 1 Prix Du Cadran and Long Distance Cup on British Champions Day at Ascot, where heat beat Stradivarius comfortably. A facile win in the Further Flight Stakes at Nottingham in April showed the Barbury Castle inmate is still a top class performer, but as is always the case with the multiple Group winner the ground will need to be relatively soft for him to line up, as King wouldn't let him take his chance on quick ground.

The new kid on the block is Kyprios, who failed to feature in the second half of last season, but the four-year-old son of Galileo has thrown his hat into the staying ring this season as having beaten Search For A Song (50/1) in the Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan, he then cruised to a 14-length win in a Leopardstown Group 3 last time out. Set to step in class for this event, he will need to improve immeasurably, but has the scope against two proven rivals.

There are some classy stayers away from the front three in the betting and the Ralph Beckett-trained Scope is next in at 8/1 and having ended last season with a Group 1 in France in the Prix Royal-Oak, the four-year-old made a pleasing return when second in a Group 3 at Newbury. The Teofilo colt will need to improve on that effort, but has the potential to progress this season over the marathon distances.

The globetrotting Princess Zoe is set to make the trip to Berkshire in mid-June for Tony Mullins, and she warmed up for the Gold Cup with a fine win in the Sagaro Stakes at the track at the end of April, and having finished a superb second last season in the Gold Cup, she's a 12/1 chance to go one better this campaign.

A fine winner of the Chester Cup for the abovementioned O'Brien, Cleveland could add notable depth to the Ballydoyle charge alongside Broome, who is looking to sparkle over longer trips these days, and that pair are both 16/1, while the likes of Mojo Star (14/1) and French raider Skazino (20/1) add more depth to what should be a hugely exciting marquee event on the Thursday of the Royal meeting.
