FRIDAY 3.40 COMMONWEALTH CUP
1. Khaadem 2. Calyx 3. Ten Sovereigns Bookmakers may have overreacted to Calyx’s defeat at Haydock last time and it’s worth remembering he’s unbeaten at Ascot. He took the breath away over course and distance last month and it will be no surprise to see him bounce back. However, he might just favour softer ground after his injury and, with that in mind, a chance is taken on Khaadem progressing again from his impressive Newbury win last time. Smart juvenile Ten Sovereigns is an obvious danger.
