1
Jocket Silks 1. SUN POWER (FR)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Richard Hannon
3
9-7
Useful juvenile who raced freely when below-par fifth of 7 in Sirenia Stakes (15/8) at Kempton (6f), finding little. Stamina to prove too so vulnerable off top weight.

2
Jocket Silks 2. VERBOTEN (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
3
9-3
Made winning debut at Yarmouth (7f) before finding Newcastle Group 1 too much. Good fourth in 7f Lingfield handicap on return, finishing well having been drawn wide. Return to 1m will suit so player.

3
Jocket Silks 3. CHEROKEE TRAIL (USA)
J: Ryan Moore
T: John Gosden
3
9-2
Won first 2 starts at 7f, looking potentially smart. Went the wrong way on next couple of runs but back on track when good fourth in 10f listed race at Newmarket on return. Respected on handicap bow.

4
Jocket Silks 4. TORO STRIKE (USA)
J: Tony Hamilton
T: Richard Fahey
3
9-2
Thirsk 6f maiden winner who posted good placed efforts over 7f in Glorious Goodwood nursery and valuable minor event at Doncaster last two starts. Should prove effective over 1m but has lots to find.

5
Jocket Silks 5. STARCAT
J: P. J. McDonald
T: Hughie Morrison
3
9-2
Looked fine prospect when making winning debut in 1m Kempton novice. Very much pitched in at deep end on return but posted excellent seventh in 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Intriguing handicap debutant.

6
Jocket Silks 6. KHALOOSY (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Roger Varian
3
9-2
Built on debut promise and looked potentially smart when landing 8.6f Wolverhampton novice with plenty in hand in November. Capable of considerably better so highly respected going into handicaps now.

7
Jocket Silks 7. KONDRATIEV WAVE (IRE)
J: Ben Curtis
T: Tony Carroll
3
9-2
Came good for new yard in cheekpieces at Kempton in January and recorded best effort yet when runner-up to Ziggle Pops in 7f Lingfield handicap 13 days ago. Fair bit more needed here though up 3 lb.

8
Jocket Silks 8. GLASVEGAS (IRE)
J: Callum Rodriguez
T: Keith Dalgleish
3
9-1
Dual juvenile winner who caught eye with strong-finishing third in Windsor Castle Stakes here. Disappointing final start and again on return in Group 3 at Newcastle. Blinkers on with plenty to prove.

9
Jocket Silks 9. SHARED BELIEF (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: Archie Watson
3
9-1
Debut 7f maiden winner at Sandown in June and improved form when twice in frame in 1m listed races at Deauville and Lyon Parilly in autumn. Fairly useful but opening mark looks very harsh. Gelded.

10
Jocket Silks 10. JOHAN
J: Non Runner
T: William Haggas
3
9-1
Promising dual winner at 2yrs who returned much improved with taking success in 1m handicap at Newbury 6 days ago, really strong at the finish. Better to come so very interesting under a 5 lb penalty.

11
Jocket Silks 11. PATH OF THUNDER (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
3
9-0
375,000 gns purchase who improved with each of his four runs as 2-y-o, readily landing 7f Newmarket nursery when last seen. Cheekpieces worn there are returned and better to come over 1m. Gelded.

12
Jocket Silks 12. ZIGGLE POPS
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
3
9-0
22/1, returned with much improved effort to land 7f handicap at Lingfield (AW) 13 days ago, getting up on post. 1m should suit but this is much tougher.

13
Jocket Silks 13. DUBAI MIRAGE (IRE)
J: Cieren Fallon
T: Saeed bin Suroor
3
9-0
Promising placed efforts in two maidens before opening his account in good style in 1m Kempton maiden 6 days ago. Saddles 5 lb penalty for handicap bow but not totally discounted. Cheekpieces fitted.

14
Jocket Silks 14. HE'S A KEEPER (IRE)
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Tom Dascombe
3
8-13
Fair 1m juvenile winner at Haydock who returned after 8 months off (also gelded) with excellent fourth in 1m Newcastle handicap 12 days ago. Dropped 2 lb but he still needs another big step forward.

15
Jocket Silks 15. DANCE FEVER (IRE)
J: Liam Keniry
T: Clive Cox
3
8-13
Unbeaten in three runs as a 2-y-o, signing off with victory in 7f Kempton nursery in November in a good time. In good hands and will improve for the step up to 1m so shouldn't be ruled out lightly.

16
Jocket Silks 16. HARRISON POINT (FR)
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
3
8-12
Dual 7f AW winner in winter before very good fifth in 1m listed race at Cagnes-Sur-Mer. Goes into handicaps now but he has lots to find off a stiff opening mark.

17
Jocket Silks 17. GROVE FERRY (IRE)
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
3
8-12
Looked progressive when landing 6f/7f novice wins last summer and duly improved on return when third of 11 to Ziggle Pops in 7f Lingfield handicap. Step up to 1m will really suit so commands respect.

18
Jocket Silks 18. ESHAASY
J: Robert Havlin
T: John Gosden
3
8-12
Readily landed 7f Kempton novice in August but well held in Sandown Group 3 and 1m Newmarket novice subsequently. Gelded and very well bred so he remains with plenty of potential for leading yard.

19
Jocket Silks 19. ENEMY
J: Oisin Murphy
T: John Gosden
3
8-11
Impressed on debut with taking 7f Ascot maiden win and better form on his return despite failing to land the odds when second to Mister Snowdon in 7f Yarmouth novice. Fair bit better to come over 1m.

20
Jocket Silks 20. WORLD TITLE (IRE)
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: Archie Watson
3
8-10
Arrives on a hat-trick after twice scoring in 1m Ripon nurseries last autumn. Up 3 lb and this is much tougher so plenty more improvement is required.

21
Jocket Silks 21. GREAT AMBASSADOR
J: Harry Bentley
T: Ralph Beckett
3
8-10
Confirmed previous promise when readily landing the odds in 7f novice at Chelmsford in November. Has plenty of scope so he's not totally discounted for in-form yard now going into handicaps. Gelded.

22
Jocket Silks 22. FINEST SOUND (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Simon & Ed Crisford
3
8-9
Opened his account in scintillating style (had wind op/gelded) when wide-margin winner of 1m Haydock handicap on return, drawing clear last 1f. Sure to take a lot of beating under mere 5 lb penalty.

23
Jocket Silks 23. ALL YOU WISH
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
3
8-8
All-the-way 7f Kempton novice winner in September but failed to repeat that effort at Yarmouth (7f, firm) on return 14 days ago. Needs to bounce back on handicap debut. Engaged 6.50 Chelmsford Weds.

24
Jocket Silks 24. AMAYSMONT
J: David Egan
T: Richard Fahey
3
8-8
6f Carlisle maiden winner on debut last August and returned from 8 months off with good sixth to Ziggle Pops in 7f Lingfield handicap (AW). 1m will suit but he needs plenty more if he's to figure.

25
Jocket Silks 25. OVERWRITE (IRE)
J: Hayley Turner
T: Mark Johnston
3
8-7
Improved with each of his three outings as a juvenile, landing 7f Bath novice, and back with good fourth in 7f Newcastle handicap 16 days ago. Will benefit from step up to 1m. RESERVE.

Analyst's Verdict

Usually one of the most competitive handicaps of the meeting but it's impossible to ignore the claims of FINEST SOUND, who looked destined for better things when spreadeagling his field at Haydock and is sure to take some stopping under a 5 lb penalty. Johan also lines up under a penalty on the back of an improved reappearance win so rates the chief danger with Verboten the pick of the remainder.

First run in 1928, the Britannia Stakes is now recognised as one of the key Heritage Handicaps in the racing calendar, the race is open to three-year-old colts and geldings only, and is run over a distance of one mile on the straight course.

The Britannia Stakes is run over both the same course and distance as the Royal Hunt Cup, which features on the previous day, the second day of Royal Ascot.

The 2018 winner of the race was the Simon Crisford-trained Ostilio, who was partnered to glory by Champion Flat Jockey Silvestre de Sousa.

John Gosden is the most successful trainer in the race, with four wins: North Song (1996), Plan-B (1998), El Gan Papa (2000) and Analyser (2001).

Jamie Spencer holds the most victories by a jockey in the Britannia Stakes, having claimed success on four occasions: New Seeker (2003), Sir Gerard (2006), Defrocked (2016) and most recently when riding Bless Him (2017).
