Royal Ascot Friday

The fourth day of Royal Ascot traditionally takes place on a Friday, and is headlined by two top level races - the Coronation Stakes and the Commonwealth Cup. The latter is the newest race at the five-day meeting, having taken the place of the Buckingham Palace Stakes in 2015.

We have all the latest betting information on the Royal Ascot Day 4 races, along with all the form guides and tips.


Royal Ascot Friday Race Cards

The opening race on the penultimate day of the meeting is the Group 3 Albany Stakes, which is a six-furlong sprint for two-year-old fillies. The race was promoted to its current status in 2005, and Jamie Spencer has won four renewals since then, with La Chunga (2005), Nijoom Dubai (2007), Samitar (2011) and Kiyoshi (2013).

Following that contest is the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes, which is for three-year-old colts and geldings over a distance of one and a half miles. This regularly features smart horses who ran well in the Epsom Derby at the beginning of the month, something shown by the 2019 winner Japan, who finished third in the Epsom classic before striking here and then subsequently winning the International Stakes at York.

Race three is the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup, the first of two top level contests on the card. Established in 2015, this is for three-year-olds over six furlongs, and has produced some excellent sprinters during its short history, with the likes of Muhaarar (2015), Quiet Reflection (2016) and Advertise (2019) all coming out on top.

Ascot Tips

The second top level race on the card is the Group 1 Coronation Stakes, which is for three-year-old fillies over a mile. This regular features protagonists from the previous month's 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, and the last filly to win both races was the Aidan O'Brien-trained Winter in 2017.

The fifth race on the card is the hugely-competitive Sandringham Stakes, a handicap for three-year-old fillies over a distance of a mile. This race regularly boasts a huge field, and is one of the trickiest races of the entire week for punters to predict - with Thanks Be causing a 33/1 upset in this 12 months ago under Hayley Turner.

Finally, the last race on day four of the Royal meeting is the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes, a handicap race over a mile and a half for horses aged three and up. It regularly consists of a large field, though punters landed a touch in the 2019 renewal, when the 7/2 favourite Baghdad won under Ryan Moore.
