The Americans

The final American participant at Royal Ascot ’22 will be previous local winner Campanelle in a return engagement. The Wesley Ward trainee takes flight in the Group 1 Platinum Jubilee (Race 4). She won the Group 2 Queen Mary here in 2020 and the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup a year ago. Campanelle is third choice at 11-1 among the UK bookmakers.

The Main Event

A massive field of 27 sprinters dash 6 furlongs in the final Group 1 of the Royal Ascot meeting. The aforementioned Campanelle seeks an historic third Royal Ascot career score and piques American interest. But it’s the Australian, two-time Grade 1 winner Home Affairs who is strongly favored at 2-1 in the UK books. No other runner is being traded in single-digit odds. Those following the week at Royal Ascot know that Australia’s renowned Nature Strip romped in the Group 1 King’s Stand, so that nation looks for a sweep of the biggest dashes this week – and will also be represented by Artorious. Godolphin’s Creative Force returns to the scene of his Group 3 Jersey Stakes win a year ago.
