Commonwealth Cup history

The Commonwealth Cup was only introduced in 2015 so there isn't the same history attributed to it as the other Royal Ascot Group 1 races.

It's the only Group 1 race in Britain for three-year-olds that allows geldings and it's one of the main features on Day 4 of the Ascot festival.

The Commonwealth Cup was introduced due to programme changes to the sprinting calendar in Europe.

The Buckingham Palace Stakes made way for the Commonwealth Cup, which has proven to be a good move. Three quality runners have taken it out to date and it will continue to grow in popularity.

Muhaarar won in 2015 before Quiet Reflection and Caravaggio followed suit in 2016 and 2017.

Commonwealth Cup betting guide

Caravaggio was a popular winner in 2017 when winning at odds of 5/6.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained three-year-old held off some fast-finishing types to record one of its most famous successes.

Harry Angel and Blue Point also featured in the field and they finished in the placings behind Caravaggio.

Quiet Reflection returned odds of 7/4 when winning in 2016.

Quiet Reflection won in similar fashion to Caravaggio in holding off 14/1 shot Kachy and 8/1 chance Washington DC.

The inaugural running saw the biggest field line up and the Charles Hillis-trained Muhaarar scored the biggest win to date.

Muhaarar stormed clear down the straight to score by just under four lengths over Limato and Anthem Alexander.
