King Charles III Stakes Odds: Big Evs favourite at Royal Ascot

The Mick Appleby-trained Big Evs is the favourite to win the first Group 1 sprint of the week at Royal Ascot, in the form of Tuesday's King Charles III Stakes.

As one of three Group 1 events on Tuesday, the King Charles III Stakes has attracted a strong field for the frantic 5f dash across the Berkshire turf.

Big Evs was at the head of the betting once final declarations were made and we're taking a look at the hopes of some of the main contenders in the King Charles III Stakes (formerly the King's Stand Stakes).

Big Evs

The Blue Point colt will bid to emulate his sire, who was a winner of this race in 2018 and 2019.

He won the Windsor Castle over course and distance last June and is 5-7 in his career, including the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf in November and last month's Listed York win on his seasonal return.


He ended last season by winning Haydock's Group 1 Sprint Cup over 6f on good ground, having run well previously in York's Nunthorpe at this trip.

Ed Bethell's six-year-old gelding was a good second to Mitbaahy in the Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh on his comeback last month and should be razor sharp for his first visit to Ascot.


The Australian-bred mare was a Group 2 winner in her homeland and was returning from 455 days off when beaten by just under three lengths in the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock (5f, soft) last month as Kerdos won.


The Mehmas filly has done plenty of racing for a four-year-old and is 3-14 on turf.

She ran a cracker at 66/1 to be third in Haydock Sprint Cup last autumn and comes here following a clear-cut success in the Listed Achilles Stakes at Haydock (5f, good) this month.


The Profitable colt was second-best in the 26-runner Palace Of Holyrood House Stakes over course and distance last summer and returns to Royal Ascot having posted a career-best in winning the Group 2 Temple Stakes (5f, soft) at Haydock last month with some of these rivals behind.

Rogue Lightning

He was a five-furlong winner at Doncaster last season for Tom Clover and posted a fair effort on seasonal return when sixth in the Temple Stakes last month at Haydock.

He has won over course and distance too and was not far off in the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp last season – his only Group 1 start to date.
