The Commonwealth Cup’s addition to the Royal Ascot card on Friday looks an inspired one with a number of Group 1 winning sprinters entered alongside a few international raiders.
Over the Berkshire track’s six furlong course, the race should be a real cracker, but we are hiking up the excitement a little bit more as the big week approaches.

Adaay: William Haggas’ charge claimed the scalp of the previous unbeaten Limato at Haydock last time out, and has clearly improved again. Two defeats at the track may put a dampener on any enthusiasm, while any rain will surely hinder his chances.
Anthem Alexander: The leading Irish challenger has only finished outside of the first three once in her career, and should run her race. Trainer Edward Lynam landed half of the Group sprints at the meeting last year, including the Queen Anne with this filly.
Cyclogenisis: Two from two in the States reads well for George Weaver’s colt, though with one win from 15 subsequent wins from the horses he’s beaten, the form could be weak. Nevertheless he could barely have been more impressive and is a danger.
Hootenanny: Already a Royal Ascot winner in the Windsor Castle Stakes, Wesley Ward’s speedball was mooted as a potential Guineas horse this year, but a drop back in trip looks just the ticket for a big run. His trainer has three wins at the meeting to his name, and is feared.
Limato: Henry Candy’s horse may have lost his unbeaten record last time out, but his class is clearly still there. A course and distance winner, he’s been favourite for this race for some time now, and is still the one they all have to beat.
Tiggy Wiggy: A third place in the Guineas was all Richard Hannon’s filly could achieve over a mile. Back in trip and her real quality can shine through. She was an explosive winner of the Newbury Super Sprint last year, and beat the very classy Cursory Glance in the Lowther Stakes next time out.
