1
Jocket Silks 1. MAGIC LILY
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
5
9-3
Smart mare who did very well in Dubai at the beginning of the year, winning pair of Group 2s then second to Barney Roy in Group 1 company. Good third in Dahlia on return and expected to go well.

2
Jocket Silks 2. AGINCOURT (IRE)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
5
9-0
Didn't need to better her best handicap form to prevail in 1m Newmarket listed race in September. Not disgraced on return at that level at Kempton 2 weeks ago but this demands another jump forward.

3
Jocket Silks 3. ICONIC CHOICE
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Tom Dascombe
4
9-0
Five-time winner as a juvenile at up to 1m, including at listed level. Didn't kick on from her Fred Darling return last term and again below best on AW earlier this month. Hard to fancy.

4
Jocket Silks 4. INVITATIONAL
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
4
9-0
Progressed nicely as a 3-y-o, winning 3 times including a French listed event in November. Added to her tally with bit in hand at Wolverhampton in January and worth a crack at this level.

5
Jocket Silks 5. JUBILOSO
J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
4
9-0
Well-bred filly who landed first 2 starts at 3 yrs and good efforts up in grade thereafter, third in Coronation here prior to unlucky third in Group 3. Disappointed final start but type to bounce back

6
Jocket Silks 6. LAVENDER'S BLUE (IRE)
J: Robert Havlin
T: Amanda Perrett
4
9-0
Not herself in the Oaks last term but firmly back on track when landing Sandown Group 3 and caught the eye when fourth in Sun Chariot final start. One for the shortlist on return with more to come.

7
Jocket Silks 7. MISS O CONNOR (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: William Haggas
5
9-0
Big price winner of Gowran maiden last spring and quickly reached a smart level for present stable, making it 4-4 in French Group 3 (1m) in October. Unexposed but likely faster ground is an unknown.

8
Jocket Silks 8. NAZEEF
J: Jim Crowley
T: John Gosden
4
9-0
Rapidly progressive in 2019, bolting clear to complete hat-trick in Newmarket handicap (1m) in September. Showed good turn of foot to land AW listed event on return and big player now up in class.

9
Jocket Silks 9. POSTED
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-0
Improved model last season, winning a brace of 7f handicaps. Not disgraced in minor pattern/listed company since but jolt of improvement required to make her mark up at Group 2 level.

10
Jocket Silks 10. QUEEN POWER (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Sir Michael Stoute
4
9-0
Smart filly who landed a 10f listed event last term. Solid efforts on 2 of her 3 subsequent starts, runner-up in Dahlia Stakes on return and no surprise to see her in the mix with that under her belt.

11
Jocket Silks 11. WASMYA (FR)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Francis-Henri Graffard, France
4
9-0
Progressive 3-y-o who took step up to listed level in her stride to land hat-trick at Baden-Baden (7f) in September. Struggled in Group 1 final start but listed return second in May was encouraging.

Analyst's Verdict

A number of these remain open to improvement, including NAZEEF who has created a good impression to date and highlighted her well-being with success at listed level on return 2 weeks ago, displaying an impressive turn of foot to boot. She's fancied to make a bold bid to complete the five-timer. Lavender's Blue is expected to do better again and along with Miss O Connor heads the dangers.

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).
