A battle of the generations and potentially one of the best races of the Flat season awaits us this weekend.
The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes takes place at Ascot Racecourse with a bumper prize pot on offer for the 1m 4f Group 1 contest.
A quality field is expected with Epsom Derby winner Adayar and Irish Derby runner-up Lone Eagle set to fly the flag for the three year olds against elder superstars Love and Mishriff.
You’ll find all the key information for the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes below including the date, start time, prize money, runners and Paddy Power’s latest odds.
King George date and start time
The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes runners and riders are scheduled to go to post at 3.35pm on Saturday July 24.
Don’t forget, you can live stream the race on paddypower.com and through the Paddy Power app. Thanks Paddy!
King George prize money
Ascot bigwigs have been able to bump up the prize pot to £875,000 after being forced to slash last year’s prize pot due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Winning connections will bag an incredible £496,213 meaning it’s one of the most valuable races on the British calendar. Not bad for a Saturday afternoon’s work.
King George runners
A total of nine horses ranging from a seven-year-old to a pair of three-year-olds officially hold entries ahead of Thursday’s final declarations.
King George odds
Love heads Paddy Power’s antepost market for the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. The dual 2020 Classic-winning filly opened her four-year-old season in fine style by breezing to victory in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot last month.
Epsom Derby hero Adayar is next in the betting as the Charlie Appleby-trained colt prepares to return to the track for the first time since his Classic success.
The rest of the potential runners are available for prices ranging from 10/1 to 33/1. You can check out Paddy Power’s antepost betting market for the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes by clicking HERE.
