Peter Niven’s seven-year-old looks a much improved horse this season and strolled to comfortable success on Saturday. He is now as short as 9/1 for the showpiece race on Thursday 18th June and the ‘stayers’ contest is shaping up to be a titanic encounter for Royal Ascot Ladies Day hospitality guests to enjoy.
Limato tasted his first defeat at Haydock on Saturday as Adaay shot clear to win the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes. The William Haggas three-year-old reversed the juvenile form with the even money favourite Limato and moved into 9/2 for the Commonwealth Cup.

The three-year-old sprint will be a fast and furious contest which will thrill Eventmasters Royal Ascot hospitality guests.
Haggas’s fantastic weekend continued as Muthmir landed a Group 2 contest across the Channel at Chantilly. After a late plunge in the betting Paul Hanagan’s mount was sent off as the 6/4 favourite and took home the spoils by a short-head in a photo-finish. The five-year-old was cut into 5/1 for the King’s Stand Stakes on the opening day of the Royal Meeting. 2014 winner Sole Power heads the market at 4/1 for the Group 1 sprint, which will be another fantastic contest for Eventmasters Royal Ascot hospitality guests to enjoy.
