Queen Anne Stakes Guide

1. Accidental Agent

T - Eve Johnson Houghton

J - Charles Bishop

Shock 33/1 winner of this race last year, having finished a decent sixth in the Lockinge at Newbury.

Finished third this time around in another part of Berkshire, and conditions look more or less the same as what it was twelve months ago.

Wide draw no problem; will tuck in from the back and hope to surge on late.

2. Barney Roy

T - Charlie Appleby

J - James Doyle

Two outings since return to racing, finishing second here in a trial to subsequent winner Zaaki, and Listed victory at Longchamp.

Form does not compete with some of the others in the field, but clearly capable of coming home in front based on his three-year-old form, which featured a win in the St James's Palace.

Ran creditably in defeat over further distances, and this stiff mile should see to his strengths.

3. Beat The Bank

T - Andrew Balding

J - Silvestre De Sousa

Four-time Group Two winner, including at Sandown on return, but previous Group One record would be the obvious worry.

In seven attempts, he has only finished in the top ten twice, and never been better than fifth - including when last but three in the Lockinge.

Trainer and jockey in good form, but looks a difficult task here.

4. Dream Castle

T - Saeed bin Suroor

J - Christophe Soumillon

Second of three Godolphin runners, this five-year-old completed a hat-trick of wins in Meydan over the British winter, but form tailed off before and after return to Europe.

He was last and eased in the Dubai Turf, before finishing a fair fifth in the Prix d'Ispahan at Longchamp late last month.

Came home fifth here to Le Brivido in the 2017 Jersey Stakes, but hard to see if he will feature in this.

5. Hazapour

T - Dermot Weld

J - Frankie Dettori

Fifth in the Derby last year, Dermot Weld has dropped this chestnut back in trip and certainly felt the effects of it so far.

The four-year-old was a Group Three winner back over eight furlongs last time out, and is now two out of two at this trip.

Every chance that he figures here, and once again counts on the services of Frankie Dettori.

6. Le Brivido

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Ryan Moore

Current favourite - won the Jersey Stakes here in his Andre Fabre days in 2017.

Signed by O'Brien at the start of the season, finishing a length-down third to Imaging in the Group Three Gladness Stakes at Naas on stable debut.

Ran well in defeat when coming home fifth in the Lockinge, but form to reverse with four of today's rivals.

First big ride of the meeting for Ryan Moore.

7. Lord Glitters

T - David O'Meara

J - Daniel Tudhope

Class grey gelding, who was a close second in this contest twelve months ago.

Outstanding third to Almond Eye in the Dubai Turf, but was well beaten on return to Britain in the Lockinge last time.

Good record at this track in recent year's, including a win on Champions Day in the Balmoral Handicap of 2017.

Never rule out.

8. Matterhorn

T - Mark Johnston

J - Oisin Murphy

Highly progressive over the winter on the all-weather, claiming the 'winning most horse' trophy, after beating Wissahickon on Finals Day at Lingfield in the Easter Classic.

Useful turf form the last twice but just failing to get past two smart winners.

Appears to handle most going conditions, but this does look a tough ask on paper and will need to produce a big surprise.

9. Mustashry

T - Sir Michael Stoute

J - Jim Crowley

Sitting near the summit of the market, the Lockinge winner does not complete wow most people.

The six-year-old is a talented individual for Sir Michael Stoute who has improved the older he has got, also winning three times last year at Sandown, Newmarket and Doncaster.

Has grown on his third from the Earl Of Sefton - the form looking very strong.

Major player.

10. Mythical Magic

T - Charlie Appleby

J - Kerrin McEvoy

No player in the Lockinge last month, but good form from Dubai featuring a nice Group Two win.

Actually made his debut here back in July 2017 with a victory, and bar that run at Newbury and one at Chantilly, he has finished in the top three on all of his other eight outings.

Difficult task beckons here though - both other horses in these colours are preferred, let alone the rest of the field.

11. Olmedo

T - JC Rouget

J - Cristian Demuro

Arrives as a top prospect for France, winning the French Guineas (Poule d'Essai des Poulains) last season, and finishing a neck second in a Group Two on latest appearance.

Can certainly do better here having been unlucky not to win last time out.

Looks back on the winning trail after slow start to the season at Saint-cloud, and these colours have reigned supreme at this venue before.


12. Romanised

T - K J Condon

J - W J Lee

Another winner of the Guineas from last season - this time from Ireland, and is bringing the Lockinge form into relevance here, Romanised should never be a 40/1 outsider.

Ran on well into fourth at Newbury, and inspired most with his fifth on return at Naas; probably the best bits of form since his Classic win at the Curragh last season.

Certainly one to consider at a price.

13. Sharja Bridge

T - Roger Varian

J - Andrea Atzeni

Winner of the Balmoral Handicap last term on Champions Day, has gone down the Class One route this term, picking up a Listed victory on return at Sandown.

Unfortunate to not win the bet365 Mile against Beat The Bank when conditions were possibly against him, and then did not play his part in the Lockinge.

Better milers about perhaps after recent form dip. Needs to bounce back with a strong show here.

14. Stormy Antarctic

T - Ed Walker

J - Gerald Mosse

Ed Walker's international globetrotter returns to Ascot, after his good fourth at similar odds in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

Twice a winner in Europe this term, victorious at Dusseldorf in a Group Three in Germany on return, before upgrading to a win in Group Two level at Capannelle in Italy - with much more ease.

Now the big Group One beckons on home ground, which he has not won on since 2016.

Some already taking their chances on this outsider, and why not.

15. Laurens

T - Karl Burke

J - PJ McDonald

First of two fillies or mares, very likeable character who is already a five-time Group One winner.

Four of which last season, but failed to transfer that over when competing against opposite sex in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at the end of the campaign.

Good second in the Lockinge on return, and seeking to provide jockey with his first Royal Ascot winner.

Not a bad luck charm - the filly is arguably his best chance to date.

16. One Master

T - William Haggas

J - Pierre-Charles Boudot

Won the Prix de la Foret at Longchamp last October, over Diamond Jubilee fancy Inns Of Court, but has not responded to that good effort since.

Fourth at the Curragh most recently in Group Two company against her own sex does not really set her up for this, and the stiff mile may not be the most favourable scenario.

Career best required definitely.
