Diamond Jubilee Stakes

19/06 16:20

The final Group 1 of the five-day extravaganza is this prestigious sprint over 6f which has been the setting for several iconic Royal Ascot moments over the last decade. The Charlie Appleby-trained Blue Point completed a unique double in 2019 when he won the Diamond Jubilee having also triumphed in the King’s Stand earlier in the week. The race is open to four-year-olds and above, and international challengers are common with Australian superstar Black Caviar famously travelling over in 2012 and maintaining her unbeaten record in dramatic fashion at odds of 1-6. Despite only two favourites coming home in front since then, the market has proven to be a reliable guide with five of the last seven winners priced no bigger than 9-2. Also expect a tight finish with no more than a neck separating the first two in each of the last five runnings.

Hardwicke Stakes

19/06 15:40

Favourites have a strong record in this Group 2 over 1m4f with five of the last ten runnings won by those at the top of the market including two at odds-on - Crystal Ocean (2018) and Await The Dawn (2011). If you’re after a trainer to follow then look no further than Sir Michael Stoute, who has won this race eight times since 2006 and 11 times in total. Although Harbinger was the last to complete the Hardwicke/King George double in 2010, many have gone close since with Crystal Ocean, Idaho (2017), Dartmouth (2016) and Telescope (2014) all finishing in the places on their return to Ascot a month later. Defoe’s 2019 victory as a five-year-old is the only time in the last 13 runnings a horse aged four has not won.

Queen Alexandra Stakes

19/06 18:10

A magnificent week’s racing concludes with the longest contest of the meeting, which given its extreme trip of 2m6f can often attract a varied field and has been plundered by many of jump racing’s leading trainers over the years. In 2009, Nicky Henderson trained Caracciola to become the oldest horse to win at Royal Ascot in modern times aged 12, while leading Irish trainers Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott have both won here twice since 2012, with Mullins also responsible for four beaten favourites. Unlike almost every other race during the week, older horses are more favoured here, and no four-year-old has triumphed since 2008 with Simenon (2012) the only winning five-year-old in that time. No winner has returned at odds bigger than 12-1 in the last decade, although only two of those have been favourites.

Golden Gates Stakes Handicap

19/06 17:35

This 0-105 handicap for three-year-olds is run over 1m2f and has been moved to the penultimate slot of the meeting after debuting on day three last year. The 20-1 shot Highland Chief was successful that day for Paul and Oliver Cole despite carrying at least 4lb more than any of his other 13 rivals, and his win was a landmark one for Cole snr who became the first trainer to have a Royal Ascot winner in six different decades. His first success came in 1977, while in contrast Highland Chief was ridden by Rossa Ryan, who was having his first winner at the royal meeting. The duo just pipped the Alan King-trained Tritonic, who went on to become one of Britain’s top-rated juvenile hurdlers.

Jersey Stakes

19/06 15:05

This first Group race of the day is run over 7f and is often the next port of call for early-season Classic contenders with recent winners Expert Eye (2018), Le Brivido (2017) and Ribchester (2016) all appearing after attempts at various Guineas. This Group 3 can act as a stepping stone to bigger targets as well with Mustajeeb (2014) and Expert Eye both recording RPRs in excess of 120 on their way to deeper waters. Winners at longer odds are not unheard of with the Aidan O’Brien-trained Ishvana (20-1) and the Richard Fahey-trained Space Traveller (25-1) both striking in the last decade. The aforementioned Ishvana is the only filly to appear on the list of winners in the last ten years after she triumphed in 2012, the last of O’Brien’s three wins in the race.

Chesham Stakes

19/06 14:30

The Chesham has become a breeding ground for the year’s best juveniles with Pinatubo successful here on his way to being named Europe’s top-rated two-year-old in 2019. The race can be an early pointer towards the following season’s Classics with 2016 winner Churchill following up in the 2,000 Guineas, while 2011 winner Maybe and last year’s victor Battleground were both sent off as favourite for the 1,000 Guineas and 2,000 Guineas respectively. Maybe and September (2017) are the only fillies to have won the race in the last decade and both were trained by Aidan O’Brien and ridden by Ryan Moore, who have combined on three of the last five winners of the 7f Listed contest. Since Sunny Way I’s 14-1 success in 2014, favourites have obliged in three of the subsequent runnings.

Wokingham Stakes

19/06 17:00

Named after the first dual winner of this race, the Wokingham is a hugely competitive heritage handicap which regularly sets off with a maximum field of 28 horses, which has helped cause several upsets over the years. In the last decade there have been two 33-1 winners and a 25-1 winner, with Cape Byron (2019) the only favourite to emerge victorious in this 6f sprint. Four or five-year-olds drawn in stall ten or above tend to fare best, but the David O’Meara-trained Out Do bucked several trends in 2017 when he won as an eight-year-old from stall one. No trainer or jockey has won this more than three times with Johnny Murtagh the most successful active rider, but no trainer has won this more than once since the turn of the century.
