2024 Commonwealth Cup Preview

The Commonwealth Cup was added to the Royal Ascot meeting back in 2015 with the Buckingham Palace Stakes being removed from the festival to make room for this race, the Group 1 race is open to three-year-olds only and was the first age-restricted Group 1 race open to geldings in Europe.

The race is run over 6f in which fillies get a 3lb allowance and any Southern Hemisphere runners get a 10lb allowance, the race is run on the fourth day of the festival. When introduced in 2015, the Jubilee Stakes was changed to a 4yo+ race with this new race being open to the 3yo runners.
