Ascot Stakes 2021 Racecard

The Ascot Stakes is a flat handicap race in Great Britain for horses aged four years or older, taking place at Ascot, although the race was moved to York in 2015 as Ascot underwent renovations.

5:00 Tue 15 Jun ASCOT STAKES

Distance: 19f 210y Age: 4yo + Prize: £35,100 Going: Gd/Frm

Analyst's Verdict

Willie Mullins and Ryan Moore have been a potent combination in this and M C MULDOON makes plenty of appeal returning to the level after some fine runs over hurdles. His all-conquering yard have another solid contender in Rayapour and he is unlikely to be far away. Elysian Flame and Lucky Deal are both appealing runners at bigger prices for the home team.

jockey silks 1. CAPE GENTLEMAN (IRE)
J: Rachael Blackmore
T: Emmet Mullins, Ireland
5
9-10
Progressive on the level before making up into a useful Grade 2-winning hurdler for canny yard. Not so good at Punchestown 7 weeks ago but open to improvement back in this sphere. Interesting.
2
jockey silks 2. ISLAND BRAVE (IRE)
J: Callum Hutchinson
T: Heather Main
7
9-10
Added to his tally when landing 2m minor event at Newcastle in December. Stiff task in Group 3 here latest though left with little chance after blowing the start. Unexposed over this sort of distance.
3
jockey silks 3. LUCKY DEAL
J: Franny Norton
T: Mark Johnston
6
9-10
Looks all stamina and scored twice over 2m on AW over the winter. Not so good back on turf the last twice, though the addition of blinkers now looks a good move and he may outrun some juicy odds.
4
jockey silks 4. LETHAL STEPS
J: Jamie Spencer
T: Mrs Denise Foster, Ireland
6
9-9
Dual Flat winner at 2 yrs and made up into a decent hurdler in 2019. Should have come on for last month's reappearance after 15 months away but yard quiet as he returns to the level. Others preferred.
5
jockey silks 5. SOLO SAXOPHONE (IRE)
J: Paul Mulrennan
T: Ben Haslam
7
9-7
Four-time Flat winner in 2020 who signed off with good third to Lucky Deal at Newcastle. Should have come on for April Newbury return but career best likely required to take this.
6
jockey silks 6. RESHOUN (FR)
J: William Buick
T: Ian Williams
7
9-7
Ended last season with a whimper after winning the Marsh Cup (2m) handicap at Newbury but should have come on for Chester Cup return and remains with a bigger effort in him over this sort of trip.
7
jockey silks 7. RAYAPOUR (FR)
J: Adam Kirby
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
5
9-7
Useful Flat performer in France in 2019. Should have come on plenty for his hurdles debut/return after 22 months off and expected to go well for yard with excellent record in this. Headgear back on.
8
jockey silks 8. M C MULDOON (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
6
9-6
Useful Flat 3-y-o and of similar merit over hurdles for this yard after long absence, yet to run a bad race and boasting some good form. Trainer/jockey won this in 2012, 2015 and 2017. Lots to like.
9
jockey silks 9. TRUMPET MAN
J: Franny Norton
T: Mark Johnston
4
9-6
Career took off all of a sudden last autumn with 3 wins in 2m handicaps. Even better in defeat in 2 runs this year, keeping on in the Chester Cup latest. Wasn't stopping there and could go well.
10
jockey silks 10. ELYSIAN FLAME
J: Ben Curtis
T: Michael & David Easterby
5
9-6
Right back on track this spring, winning handicap hurdle and 2m Newbury Flat handicap before left with a hopeless task in messy Chester contest last month. This test will suit and he's intriguing.
11
jockey silks 11. LOSTWITHIEL (IRE)
J: Hollie Doyle
T: George Boughey
4
9-5
Progressive sort who won first 2 starts at around 12f before good efforts in handicaps over two furlongs further. Yard are flying but this looks a big ask for him at this stage upped markedly in trip.
12
jockey silks 12. UNTOLD STORY
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Saeed bin Suroor
4
9-4
Returned with victory at Lingfield (12f, AW) and ran well on subsequent handicap debut at Newmarket. Another lightly-raced 4-y-o taking a big step up at an early stage. Stacks of stamina in pedigree.
13
jockey silks 13. ROYAL ILLUSION (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
9
9-4
Classy dual-purpose performer for trainer, showing useful form in Flat handicaps and winning maiden hurdle in March. Held when fell last at Fairyhouse 10 weeks ago. Others from yard look stronger.
14
jockey silks 14. COEUR DE LION
J: Thore Hammer Hansen
T: Alan King
8
9-4
Likeable stayer who took this last year off 3 lb lower mark. Fine run in the Chester Cup again under excellent claimer last month but more needed to retain his crown with the Irish runners now back.
15
jockey silks 15. POSTILEO (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
4
9-3
Returned with excellent seconds in handicaps at Kempton and Chester (Chester Cup consolation), making up tons of ground in the latter. Lost a shoe at Haydock last time but needs to improve here.
16
jockey silks 16. MANCINI
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Ian Williams
7
9-3
Back to winning ways for this yard at Sandown last summer and should have come on for last month's Chester return. Seventh and ninth in last 2 renewals of this and clearly needs more from somewhere.
17
jockey silks 17. ROCHESTER HOUSE (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Mark Johnston
5
9-3
Dual 2m winner towards the end of 2020 and good run behind Elysian Flame at Newbury in April. Not best placed at Chester last time and was an eye-catcher under this rider in this 12 months ago.
18
jockey silks 18. JUST HUBERT (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: William Muir & Chris Grassick
5
9-2
Added Glorious Goodwood marathon handicap to his tally in 2020 and returned with a fine run at Haydock last month. Unlikely to be toiling at the finish here but probably not quite up to winning.
19
jockey silks 19. GOLDEN RULES
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
4
9-2
AW novice winner in 2020. Narrowly denied when odds-on for Wolverhampton handicap debut/reappearance with the form strong but disappointed at Newmarket next time. Upped markedly in trip. Bit to find.
20
jockey silks 20. DALTON HIGHWAY (IRE)
J: C. T. Keane
T: D. K. Weld, Ireland
8
9-1
Fairly useful dual-purpose performer who won 2m Curragh handicap on return last season. Poor back there last month though after a good run over hurdles and work to do here in re-fitted headgear.
