Duke Of Cambridge Stakes 2022 Racecard

The Duke of Cambridge Stakes is a Group 2 race over one mile on the straight course at Ascot. The race is open to fillies and mares aged four and older.

4:20 Wed 15 Jun DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE STAKES

Distance: 8f 0y Age: 4yo + Prize: £103,600 Going: Good to Firm

Analyst's Verdict

A tightly-knit affair that could go the way of the improving BASHKIROVA provided she's not undone by a relatively quick turnaround. She was impressive at Epsom last time and could take another step forward to get the better of Saffron Beach and Mother Earth. French-raider Sibila Spain also arrives on the up and warrants respect.

1
jockey silks 1. SAFFRON BEACH (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Jane Chapple-Hyam
4
9-7
Runner-up in 1000 Guineas at Newmarket last May and enjoyed her finest hour back on the Rowley Mile in October, winning the Sun Chariot by 3 lengths from Mother Earth. Not discredited in Meydan earlier this year, and should be primed for a big run.
2
jockey silks 2. SIBILA SPAIN (IRE)
J: Aurelien Lemaitre
T: Christopher Head, France
4
9-5
Likeable filly who eked out a bit more under a change of tactics when scoring in the Prix du Muguet at Saint-Cloud in May. This track should suit her, so there could be further progress on the cards.
3
jockey silks 3. BASHKIROVA
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
4
9-2
Came a long way in a short space of time at 3 yrs, winning her first 3 starts, and resumed progress when comfortably landing the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at the Derby meeting, Type to do better still.
4
jockey silks 4. KENNELLA (FR)
J: Mickael Barzalona
T: N. Caullery, France
4
9-2
Smart performer when on her game, but has a bit to find and her reappearance in a listed event at Longchamp was a touch underwhelming.
5
jockey silks 5. MOTHER EARTH (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
4
9-2
Last year's 1000 Guineas winner who resumed with comfortable victory in Park Express Stakes at the Curragh. Folded tamely in the Lockinge at Newbury last time but, given her overall profile, she's likely to bounce back.
6
jockey silks 6. NOVEMBA (GER)
J: Sibylle Vogt
T: P. Schiergen, Germany
4
9-2
German Guineas winner last season and, while she failed to fire at Baden-Baden last time, she might have needed the run, and she's dangerous if allowed her own way in front.
7
jockey silks 7. PRIMO BACIO (IRE)
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Ed Walker
4
9-2
Smart filly at her best but she ended last term with modest ninth in Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket and disappointed when last of 6 in a listed event at Goodwood on return. Has a bit to prove.
8
jockey silks 8. THUNDER BEAUTY (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
4
9-2
Useful filly who wasn't discredited when fourth of 7 to Pearls Galore in Lanwades Stud Stakes at The Curragh last time. Likely to be outclassed in this, though.

Betting Forecast : 3/1 3 BASHKIROVA, 7/2 3.5 MOTHER EARTH, 7/2 3.5 SAFFRON BEACH, 7/1 7 NOVEMBA, 7/1 7 SIBILA SPAIN, 25/1 25 PRIMO BACIO, 40/1 40 KENNELLA, 50/1 50 THUNDER BEAUTY

The Duke of Cambridge Stakes is one of Royal Ascot’s newer races, established in 2004 as the Windsor Forest Stakes before taking its present title in 2013.

The race is for older fillies and mares who would otherwise have to run against the best older male milers in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes on the first day of the meeting. However, several Duke of Cambridge Stakes winners have also been successful at the top level during their careers, including against males. The 2005 winner Peeress won the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury the following year, while the 2006 winner Soviet Song was a former winner of the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.

Two fillies, Nannina and Qemah, have won the Duke of Cambridge Stakes after being successful in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot the year before. Peeress, Nannina, Spacious and Integral have all won the Duke of Cambridge Stakes in the colours of Cheveley Park Stud. There have been three French-trained winners of the Duke of Cambridge Stakes: Sabana Perdida (2008), Usherette (2016) and Qemah (2017).

The leading trainer in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes is Sir Michael Stoute, with four winners. Stoute’s four winners were Favourable Terms (2004), Peeress (2005), Strawberrydaiquiri (2010) and Integral (2014).

The leading jockeys in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes are William Buick, Wayne Lordan and Ryan Moore, with two winners apiece.  William Buick’s two winners in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes were Joviality (2012) and Aljazzi (2018). Wayne Lordan’s two winners in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes were Lolly For Dolly (2011) and Duntle (2013). Ryan Moore’s two winners in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes were Strawberrydaiquiri (2010) and Integral (2014).
