About the Prince of Wales’s Stakes
The Prince of Wales’s Stakes is one of the most prestigious races at Royal Ascot, carrying the largest purse at the meeting. The Group 1 race is run over 1 mile 2 furlongs and is open to 4-year-old and above racehorses. The Prince of Wales’s Stakes popularity is based on the fact that it pitches champion middle distance racehorses of different age groups against each other, and typically features several winners of the previous season’s big Group 1 races for 3-year-olds.
Betting on the Prince of Wales’s Stakes
The presence of several star middle distance racehorses of different ages in a single field makes the Prince of Wales’s Stakes a challenging race to call. The markets usually do a good job of singling out the reasonable contenders, but wins by antepost favourites are infrequent. A previous Group 1 win is one marker of a potential champion, but there are few broad trends in the race to draw on, and you’re best served by making each way selections among the horses priced under the 10/1 margin.
