The centrepiece of today's horseracing is the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes At Ascot . This Group 1 race is an opportunity for the best three year olds of this season to take on older horses for the first time at this level and the race promises to be a cracker . Michael Stoute appears to hold all of the aces with Workforce , who won this year's Derby by a country mile and second favourite Harbinger who won well at Royal Ascot last time out . Stoute also saddles Confront today as a pacemaker for his two leading hopes . A six horse race then with only five with real chances and two bookmakers are offering enhanced each way terms of 1/3 odds 1-2 . Blue Square and 888Sport are the bookmakers to bet with on this race and both currently offer top price of 6/1 for Cape Blanco the Aidan O'Brien challenger and this looks sure to run a big race . Cape Blanco won the Irish Derby last time out and had previously beaten today's favourite Workforce in the Dante Stakes at York . Whilst Workforce has improved since that York race , the difference in price today is huge and at 6/1 to win and great each way terms , Cape Blanco must be the value but only with Blue Square and 888Sport .
