The Albany Stakes kicks-off Royal Ascot Day 4, which is another 2 year-old contest. In recent years we’ve seen 16 of the last 17 winners having finishes in the top two in their last race, with 13 of those winning last time out. The Group Two King Edward VII Stakes is the second race at Royal Ascot day two – this race has been dominated by trainers John Gosden, Mark Johnston and Sir Michael Stoute – they’ve won 9 of the last 17 renewals between them.

One of the newer Royal Ascot races is next up on day four – The Group One Commonwealth Cup. This is a sprint contest over 6f, just for the 3 year-olds. We’ve now only had five past runnings of the race, but so far all 8 past winners of the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot have previously won over 6 furlongs and came from draw 8 or lower. We’ve two handicaps to end day four at Royal Ascot – the Sandringham Stakes and The Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes.

In 2019 we saw jockey, Hayley Turner, become the first female to ride a Royal Ascot winner since Gay Kelleway in 1987 when she steered home Thanks Be for trainer Charlie Fellowes. It’s always a well-contested race but the punters tend to get it right with 15 of the last 18 Sandringham Stakes winners returning 12/1 or shorter in the betting.

The Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes is the final Royal Ascot race on day four. This 1m4f contest has been won by a 4 or 5 year-old in ALL of the last 17 runnings, while 14 of the last 17 winners carried 9-0 or more in weight.
