Thursday’s race is the third of four Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” races to be held at Royal Ascot this year.
John Gosden and Frankie Dettori were off to an explosive start to the Royal meeting with a day one treble and it's short odds they'll keep up the momentum on the second day.
Anthony Oppenheimer’s 4-year-old Coronation Cup (G1) winner Cracksman (GB) will likely be a substantial favorite when he faces six rivals on Wednesday in the 1 ½-mile, $750,000 Prince of Wales’s Stakes (G1) at Royal Ascot for an automatic berth into the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1) through the international Breeders’ Cup Challenge.
Several high-profile U.S. horses are scheduled to race at the elite Royal Ascot meet in England this week.
