2021 Commonwealth Cup Tips

Two Group 1 features will be run and won on Day 4 of Royal Ascot and the Commonwealth Cup is first cab off the rank.

The largest field in any Group 1 race at this year’s Royal Ascot Carnival has accepted for the Commonwealth Cup, and it subsequently shapes as a terrific betting prospect.

You can find my 2021 Commonwealth Cup Tips below.

Suggested Bets

  • 2 Units E/W #3 Dragon Symbol
  • Boxed Trifecta of the selections below
Commonwealth Cup - Winner
No. 3 Dragon Symbol

I’m confident that Dragon Symbol can run a big race in the Commonwealth Cup, and the $8 we’re getting at publish looks like a lovely bet.

Dragon Symbol has been nothing short of outstanding since debuting, and he won each of his fdirst four career starts before just being pipped by a nose in the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes last time.

This is another step up in class, but he is rock-hard fit and clearly has the ability.

Commonwealth Cup - 2nd
No. 13 Campanelle

Campanelle hasn’t been seen at the races since November, but he she was nothing short of outstanding during her debut prep, and she rates as a key winning chance in Commonwealth Cup betting.

The Kodiac filly has had four career starts for three wins and a fourth placing, and she won the Group 1 Darley Prix Morny in August most notably.

She races well fresh and with even luck, I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish again.

Commonwealth Cup - 3rd
No. 21 Suesa

William Buick jumps into the saddle of the talented Suesa in the Commonwealth Cup, and the pair should be able to enjoy a lovely run in transit from barrier 8.

Suesa has more than stamped herself as a filly to follow during her short racing career so far, and she actually puts an unbeaten record on the line in the Commonwealth Cup, having greeted the judge first on all four appearances.

So far this time she has recorded consecutive wins in Group 3 company and should be ready to peak third-up.

Commonwealth Cup - 4th
No. 20 Sacred

The smallest Australian connection in the Commonwealth Cup this year will see Tom Marquand and William Haggas, both big fans of the Sydney Autumn Carnival, team up with Sacred.

Sacred has had two starts back from a spell this time, winning the Group 3 Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket when fresh, but returned a flat effort in the Group 1 1000 Guineas last time.

Fitter third-up and under the conditions of this race, I think that she can bounce back, and she adds great value to our Commonwealth Cup first four at odds of $20.
