1
Jocket Silks 1. DREAM OF DREAMS (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
6
9-3
Won first 2 starts last season before producing a career best when only just failing to overhaul Blue Point in this race. Went off the boil after but no surprise to see him bounce back.

2
Jocket Silks 2. HELLO YOUMZAIN (FR)
J: Kevin Stott
T: Kevin Ryan
4
9-3
Both wins came at Haydock last season, namely the Sandy Lane Stakes and Betfair Sprint Cup (Group 1). Good third in Commonwealth Cup at this meeting in between. Not seen to best effect here final run.

3
Jocket Silks 3. KHAADEM (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Charles Hills
4
9-3
Produced a massive effort when easily winning Stewards' Cup at Glorious Goodwood last season but disappointed all 3 starts at this level, including twice here. Soft ground would be a concern.

4
Jocket Silks 4. SANDS OF MALI (FR)
J: Ben Curtis
T: Richard Fahey
5
9-3
Sprang a surprise in Champions Sprint over C&D final 3-y-o start (had an uncontested lead), and nowhere near that level in 4 starts last term. Not hard to look elsewhere.

5
Jocket Silks 5. SCEPTICAL
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Denis Hogan, Ireland
4
9-3
Cost connections just £2,800 as an unraced 3-y-o but has an excellent pedigree and has rapidly developed into the highest-rated sprinter in Ireland, bolting up in listed race at Naas 12 days ago.

6
Jocket Silks 6. SHINE SO BRIGHT
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-3
Showed plenty of speed over 7f/1m last season, notably when holding off Laurens in Group 2 at York in August. Doesn't have much to find on that form and drop back in trip potentially a good move.

7
Jocket Silks 7. SPEAK IN COLOURS
J: William Buick
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
5
9-3
Won twice last season, including Group 3 at the Curragh in September. Creditable fourth in this last season and respectable comeback at the Curragh last week. Likely to come up short again, however.

8
Jocket Silks 8. THE TIN MAN
J: Oisin Murphy
T: James Fanshawe
8
9-3
Grand servant to connections, and 2 of his 3 Group 1 wins have come over this C&D, including this event in 2017. However, his second to Hello Youmzain in Sprint Cup was his only good run of 2019.

9
Jocket Silks 9. BREATHTAKING LOOK
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Stuart Williams
5
9-0
Progressive filly, winning 3 times last season, including when making all in Group 3 at Doncaster (7f). Good second back sprinting in Group 3 at Newmarket on return and this stiff 6f will suit.

10
Jocket Silks 10. ONE MASTER
J: James Doyle
T: William Haggas
6
9-0
Proved better than ever to win Prix de la Foret at Longchamp for the second season in a row in October. Good second in Champions Sprint here later that month and soft ground would increase her chance.

Analyst's Verdict

Many are closely matched on their best form but SCEPTICAL has created a fantastic impression in a short space of time and can improve past his rivals. One Master was a close third in the Queen Anne at this meeting last season but this race looks more suitable and she rates a big threat, especially if conditions become testing, with Betfair Sprint Cup winner Hello Youmzain another to consider.

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 six 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).
