The six-furlong Coventry Stakes is the early season highlight for two-year-olds over six furlongs. First run in , the Coventry Stakes has held Group 2 status since , having been a Group 3 since The Coventry Stakes is usually the first Group race for two-year-olds in Britain each year but Friday's Norfolk Stakes holds that honour this year.
She was placed behind subsequent Guineas winner Love on debut before winning her next two starts, including the G2 Debutante Stakes. This is her first run for the season as she attempts to emulate her half-sister Alpha Centauri who won this race by six lengths in , the first of four Group 1 victories during her start career.
The race started out with Group 2 status in and was promoted to Group 1 level in He then resumed in the Guineas two weeks ago when having his first run over the mile and ran third, behind previous Group 1 winner Kameko and WICHITA who was heavily backed at odds and ran terrific for second.
Pinatubo should derive benefit from that initial outing over this distance and may shade Wichita on this occasion back around a bend. THREAT competed at a high level during his two-year-old season and makes his seasonal return as a three-year-old in this race, extending to the mile for the first time.
It was restricted to four-year-olds and upwards with the first running of the Commonwealth Cup in Her three starts down the straight at Ascot between to metres have all been excellent, finishing third in last year's Queen Anne Stakes and runner-up in the British Champions Sprint.
She has won the Group 1 Prix de la Foret m at Longchamp the past two years, a testing metres will suit. This is his first run outside Ireland and clearly faces the toughest test of his career.
His two runs at this venue have been disappointing. His best is good enough to figure here. This will be his first start since being gelded.
The inaugural Wokingham took place in , making the race the oldest of the handicaps still run at Royal Ascot. The famous sprint, which has been run over six furlongs since its inception, is named after the market town seven miles from the Royal course.
Iffraaj won the race in when the Royal meeting was held at York and subsequently won three Group 2 races and established himself as a quality stallion.
He ended last year with two close up defeats in similar handicap company over metres. Expect him to settle just forward of midfield towards the grandstand side of the course.
BIELSA is a progressive type that looks destined to exit handicap grade and move into stakes grade shortly. He is the one to beat.
Spanish City each way , 9. Bielsa saver. The final race of Royal Ascot is the longest race of the meeting — held over metres.
It also holds the honour as being the longest contest held under flat racing rules in Britain. Brown Jack won the race over six consecutive years between and He has been tried in slightly better company than this since that victory.
He won two runs ago with plenty of weight at Kempton over metres in February. FUN MAC doesn't win out of turn, he isn't the most genuine horse, although his most recent win came two runs ago in October.
He was placed earlier this month over metres at Newmarket. Today's Racing. Yesterday's Results. Hot Topic. Cartwright conquering quarantine, then Qld am.

Quadrilateral is next best ahead of US raider - and fellow top-flight winner - Sharing. A fascinating renewal which can go to WICHITA, whose close second in the 2, Guineas was a fine run and makes him the one to beat now that he has evidently improved past last season's star 2yo Pinatubo, who is nonetheless a much respected main danger.
Pinatubo was only a length adrift of the selection at Newmarket and it could be argued that stall two is a better draw than his rival's stall seven berth, so there is likely to be little between the pair again.
The upped-in-grade but unbeaten Gosden colt Palace Pier adds considerable interest too and he commands major respect as well. The prediction is that he'll come there cruising and go whoosh once Frankie Dettori presses the button.
Hello Youmzain has been largely progressive and may prove the biggest threat but Khaadem also has possibilities if the going is suitable for him. One Master would be seriously respected if the ground happens to turn testing.
Jack's Point has been in the form of his life over 7f since lockdown ended and he looks sure to give the low numbers a strong lead. Angel Alexander comes into it on his improved form at this trip in the autumn though he kept a low profile in Meydan when last seen early in the year.
Less competitive than usual and only three runners make strong appeal as prospective winners. His stamina is assured and a very bold bid is likely.
The Grand Visir has to be respected after last year's win under top weight in the Ascot Stakes at this meeting but the biggest danger to the selection may be Mekong, who is the form pick here.
Much will depend on how this quirky sort reacts to the quick turnaround after running in Thursday's Gold Cup here.
Early betting suggests this will be an open Coventry, featuring plenty of promising winners but no obvious standout. Mark Johnston looks strong all week, particularly with his two-year-olds, and has at least two solid chances here with all-weather winners Thunder Of Niagara, who impressed at Newcastle, and Army Of India, who narrowly held Archie Watson's Science after idling at Kempton.
Lucky Vega burst the Lipizzaner bubble at Naas first time out and would have a definite chance, as would Poetic Flare, who won the first juvenile race of the year at the same course in March.
Admiral Nelson and Creative Force are also among the market leaders but both have alternative engagements.
This race and the St James's Palace Stakes have been moved to the final day, in order to maximise the time between them and a five-weeks-late Guineas weekend.
They are still uncomfortably close to Newmarket — and even closer to the two Classics at the Curragh — so it's difficult to know exactly who will be turning up, but much here hinges upon whether Aidan O'Brien decides to run Peaceful, who would dominate the betting.
Guineas runner-up Cloak Of Spirits, who won so well at Ascot on her two-year-old debut, is the one to beat otherwise, especially as third-placed Quadrilateral would also be better suited to stepping up in trip.
That said, she wouldn't be ruled out if connections do opt to keep her to a mile here as she was much too free at Newmarket. We are assured of at least one international challenger, for Graham Motion's challenge with Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies' Turf winner Sharing is back on.
Oisin Murphy was booked long ago and sticks with her despite connections of his impressive Pretty Polly winner Run Wild subsequently committing to this drop in distance.
Benbatl's unbeaten sister Fooraat was tremendously impressive under a penalty in a novice at Chelmsford and could not be ruled out.
Wesley Ward has won this three times, including with top sprinter Lady Aurelia, so his Campanelle and Royal Approval, first and second in the same maiden at Gulfstream Park late last month, have to be high on the shortlist.
Several of those quoted prominently in the limited ante-post lists available at this stage, including More Beautiful, are also entered in Friday's Albany Stakes, so this looks a race best left until later in the week.
The most valuable sprint handicaps are invariably heavily oversubscribed and plenty will welcome the addition to the programme of a consolation Wokingham, similar to those we are so familiar with at Goodwood and Ayr.
However, this year the Wokingham entries will not be revealed until Monday lunchtime and the weights on Tuesday. In a normal year we might have been licking our lips at the prospect of a three-way clash between 2, Guineas winners Kameko, Victor Ludorum and Siskin, but these are far from normal times and the programme has been turned upside-down.
As in the Coronation Stakes, it's hard to know quite how the field will shape up, but Aidan O'Brien has described it as "a strong possibility" for Guineas second Wichita and Charlie Appleby had no hesitation in nominating Pinatubo following his rather disappointing third there.
Wichita excelled himself, while the obvious conclusion to be drawn from Pinatubo's first defeat is that he has simply not made the improvement from two to three that was needed to maintain last year's dominance.
The Guineas form nevertheless merits the utmost respect. O'Brien, the race's leading trainer with eight wins, has also suggested fellow Guineas disappointment Arizona will run, having simply failed to run his race at Newmarket.
Palace Pier came right away late on at Newcastle on his return. This is a big step up, but he's a very exciting prospect.
Positive beat the Guineas winner Kameko in the Solario Stakes at Sandown before disappointing on soft ground in the Dewhurst, and Clive Cox decided weeks ago that Ascot might suit him better than Newmarket.
Threat was another good two-year-old who skipped the Guineas to wait for this.
