The Commonwealth Cup is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years. It is the only Group 1 flat race in Great Britain exclusively for three-year-olds that allows geldings to compete and the first age-restricted Group 1 race which is open to geldings in Europe. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.
The Commonwealth Cup was introduced in 2015 as part of a set of changes to the programme of sprint horse races in Europe. The Diamond Jubilee Stakes, run over the same course and distance at the same meeting, was closed to three-year-olds at the same time. The new race was subsequently named the Commonwealth Cup and the Buckingham Palace Stakes was removed from the Royal Ascot meeting to make room for the new race.
