Calyx odds cut on Commonwealth Cup win

Latest odds and betting for the Commonwealth Cup

Calyx has become the outright favourite to race to victory in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot on 21st June, according to our bookmakers.

The three-year-old colt is now priced at 11/8 to claim a win at Ascot Racecourse in June’s festival after he stormed to a comeback win in the Merriebelle Stable Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes this afternoon.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained Ten Sovereigns remains his nearest challenger for success in the Cup and is priced at 9/2, with Bulletin third-favourite at 8/1.

“We initially went 2/1 for the Commonwealth Cup following his trial success, but once connections confirmed the six-furlong contest at the Royal meeting was Calyx’s intended target, rather than the St James’s Palace Stakes over a mile, we had no hesitation in cutting his odds for a second time,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Earlier winners on Royal Ascot trials day included Ventura Rebel, installed at 14/1 for the Coventry Stakes, and Dee Ex Bee, now 8/1 for the Gold Cup, having been cut to 12/1 (from 25/1) immediately after his Sagaro Stakes win.
