Friday's running at Royal Ascot sees the inauguration of a new race: the 15:40 Commonwealth Cup.
Knocking the Buckingham Palace Stakes out of the traditional running order, this race seems to be a popular addition. It's certainly attracted the kind of lineup that would make any other race organiser weak at the knees. As ever, we've gone through the runners and riders to bring you our pick of the best priced horses.
The two horses vying to be favourite at the bookies are Limato and Hootenanny, and of the two we're leaning towards Hootenanny. He had success here last year in the Windsor Castle Stakes, and he took an easy win in April at Keeneland suggesting that's he's as in form as ever. Limato finally saw defeat for the first time recently at Haydock, albeit on very poor ground, and we think this race will show him his second taste of second place, with Hootenanny's ability to stay over a mile likely enough to see him right on the day.
The best place to back him is at PaddyPower, who are offering a market leading 7/2.
Looking further down the prices, Muhaarar stands out to us as a horse who is priced far longer than we feel he deserves.
In the Greenham he had the best of both Estidhkaar and Ivawood, no mean feat, and although he finished eighth in the French 2000 Guineas at Longchamp he was actually only six lengths back from the winner after recovering from a bad draw.
Switching back to a sprint is probably a smart move for him, and at his current prices it's a good move for the punters too! The best place we found to back him was at BetFred, who are offering a very decent 12/1.
Finally, looking at the very long odds will show you a lot of known good sprinters at very big prices. They're not all worth backing, but we'd put a word in for Profitable, who recently showed up Tendu at York with a sublime run. If his price had shortened as a result we wouldn't be so keen, but far from it. You can pick him up at a very tempting 40/1 right now over at SkyBet.
