Diamond Jubilee Stakes 2021 Racecard

The Diamond Jubilee Stakes is a Group 1 sprint held over six furlongs, and is the feature race on the fifth and final day of Royal Ascot, which is traditionally held on the middle Saturday in June.

4:20 Sat 19 Jun DIAMOND JUBILEE STAKES

Distance: 6f 0y Age: 4yo + Prize: £396,970 Going: Gd/Sft

Analyst's Verdict

The market principals look the ones to focus on in this cracking Group 1 sprint. STARMAN is the least exposed and has the potential to dominate this division so rates a confident selection to build on his Duke of York Stakes victory and gain his most prestigious success yet. Dream of Dreams could be set to play second fiddle for a third time, with Nahaarr sure to be in the mix again too.

J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Tim Easterby
4
9-3
Signed off 2020 with good runs in the Sprint Cup at Haydock and Champions Sprint but too free when only sixth to Starman in the Duke of York Stakes on return last month and needs to raise his game.

J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
7
9-3
Second in this race in 2019 and again arrived too late on the scene when filling the same position 12 months ago. Proved well-being with easy win in Windsor listed contest last month so solid claims.

J: Non Runner

5
9-3
Won Gimcrack Stakes but has come up short in pattern company since, though ran a cracker when third in Palace House. Well held behind Starman in the Duke of York Stakes. NON RUNNER.

J: James Doyle

5
9-3
Smart sprinter who arrives on the back of a good second to Dream of Dreams in Windsor listed event last time, but he was getting 7 lb from the winner, so he has his work cut out on level terms now.

J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
7
9-3
Progressed well when winning five times in 2020, including in Champions Sprint over C&D. Left impression would come on for his return at the Curragh last month, but others hold more appealing claims.
6
jockey silks 6. HAPPY POWER (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Andrew Balding
5
9-3
Ended 2020 with a below-par effort in the Champions Sprint. Should be suited by this drop in trip (has been well beaten by Palace Pier on both starts at 1m this season) but others look stronger.
7
jockey silks 7. NAHAARR (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
5
9-3
Landed a gamble when winning Ayr Gold Cup last autumn and looked a high-class sprinter on return when beaten a neck by Starman in the Duke of York Stakes. Has more to offer and high on the shortlist.
8
jockey silks 8. NAMOS (GER)
J: William Buick

Very useful German sprinter who produced a career best when third in a Group 3 at Longchamp last month. This demands a lot more, however.

J: Kieran Shoemark
T: Charles Hills
4
9-3
Recorded a career-best effort when making a winning return in a listed event at Doncaster in March (by one and three quarter lengths from Emaraaty Ana), but he now needs to prove he can build on it.
10
jockey silks 10. STARMAN
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Ed Walker
4
9-3
Has come a long way in a short space of time and landed Duke of York Stakes last month, always finding more when Nahaarr challenged and winning with a bit in hand. Progressive, and the one to beat.

J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara

Already a dual winner in 2021 in AW Sprint Championships at Lingfield and Abernant Stakes at Newmarket. Ran respectably when fourth to Starman in the Duke of York Stakes last time but more needed.

Thrown in at the deep end but ran with credit when fifth to Starman in the Duke of York Stakes, especially as he ended up away from where the main action unfolded. Goes well here, and no forlorn hope.

J: Frankie Dettori
T: Saeed bin Suroor

9-0
Won Nad Al Sheba Turf Sprint at Meydan in March and second in Al Quoz Sprint on her next start. Failed to translate that form back to these shores in Duke Of York Stakes though. Others preferred.

Gained first pattern success in the Ballyogan Stakes at the Curragh earlier this month, knuckling down well after a slow start. Can’t knock her attitude, but much more needed to follow up here.

Betting Forecast : 3/1 3 DREAM OF DREAMS, 3/1 3 STARMAN, 6/1 6 NAHAARR, 9/1 9 ART POWER, 12/1 12 GLEN SHIEL, 25/1 25 ROYAL COMMANDO, 28/1 28 SUMMERGHAND, 33/1 33 SONAIYLA, 40/1 40 FINAL SONG, 40/1 40 NAMOS, 50/1 50 HAPPY POWER, 50/1 50 GARRUS, 50/1 50 VENTURA REBEL

The race is open to four-year-olds and up, though three-year-olds from the southern hemisphere are also permitted to take their chance. Fillies and mares who run in the race receive a 3 lb allowance.

The race has been subject to several name changes over the years, having been established in 1868 as the All-Aged Stakes. It had its first name chance in 1926, when it was named the Cork and Orrey Stakes in 1926 in honour of the ninth Earl of Cork and held Group 3 status, before being upgraded to Group 2 status in 1998.

The race was renamed once again in 2002 to the Golden Jubilee Stakes, to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II that year, and at the same time was upgraded to Group 1 status. The race’s name was changed once again in 2012, to its current title of the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Diamond Jubilee Stakes is one of the biggest sprint races in the world, and regularly attracts competitors from around the world, particularly Australia. It is the sixth leg of the Global Sprint Challenge, a ten-race international series which was inaugurated in 2005.

The race used to be open to three-year-olds, but was restricted to four-year-olds and up in 2015, alongside the creation of a new race at the same meeting, the Commonwealth Cup, which is for three-year-olds only.

There have been several famous renewals of the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, though none perhaps more so than the 2012 renewal, which was won by the unbeaten Australian superstar Black Caviar. Brought over specifically for the race, Black Caviar was sent off a 6/1-on favourite for the race, and quickened clear to lead inside the final furlong, before her rider, Luke Nolen, dramatically mistook the winning line and eased off his mount with 50 yards to go. Nolen quickly realised his error, and shook up Black Caviar once again to hold off the late challenges of Moonlight Cloud and Restiadargent to hold on to the win for the Peter Moody team.

The 2005 renewal of the Diamond Jubilee Stakes (known then as the Golden Jubilee Stakes), along with the rest of Royal Ascot that year, took place at York due to Ascot racecourse being renovated.

The leading trainer in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes is Vincent O’Brien, with five winners: Welsh Saint (1970), Saritamer (1974), Swingtime (1975), Thatching (1979) and College Chapel (1993).

The leading jockey in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes is Lester Piggott, with ten winners: Right Boy (1958 & 1959), Tin Whistle (1960), El Gallo (1963), Mountain Cell (1968), Welsh Saint (1970), Saritamer (1974), Swingtime (1975), Thatching (1979) and College Chapel (1993).
