Picks and Ponderings: more Ascot!

Friday’s card at Royal Ascot features a pair of Group I races for three-year-olds, and Paul Mazur and I look at both of them over at Picks and Ponderings.

I take a look at the Commonwealth Cup, a new race on the Royal Ascot calendar for sophomore turf sprinters.  That race contains a pair of American invaders: Hootenanny and Cyclogenisis.  Hootenanny is not only class-proven, but Royal Ascot-proven; he won the Windsor Castle there last year.  Cyclogenisis tries top-flight company for the first time; he has been sharp in three starts, but has not climbed the class ladder past the listed stakes level.  Paul looks at the Coronation Stakes, a turf mile for three-year-old fillies.  Miss Temple City bears the American standard in that race, coming off a win in the Hilltop Stakes at Pimlico.

Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, and see who we like in the Group I races this Friday at Royal Ascot!
