1
Jocket Silks 1. DUBAI FUTURE
J: Pat Cosgrave
T: Saeed bin Suroor
4
9-10
Progressive colt who completed hat-trick in handicap at Meydan in January. Showed smart form when runner-up in Group 3 there following month but mark raised as a result. Drawn widest.

2
Jocket Silks 2. EL MISK
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
4
9-10
Highly-regarded colt who showed smart form towards the end of 3-y-o campaign, beating a couple of subsequent winners when landing the odds at Kempton in October. Interesting contender back on turf.

3
Jocket Silks 3. WEST END CHARMER (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Mark Johnston
4
9-9
Took a big step forward to win Doncaster handicap and defied a 12-month absence in good style at Newmarket 12 days ago, again making all. Potentially well treated under a penalty.

4
Jocket Silks 4. DAL HORRISGLE
J: James Doyle
T: William Haggas
4
9-7
Progressed again to complete the hat-trick on handicap debut at Haydock last summer. Acquitted himself well up in grade when fifth in Group 3 at Goodwood but ran poorly next time. Off 10 months.

5
Jocket Silks 5. UNIVERSAL ORDER
J: Stevie Donohoe
T: David Simcock
4
9-7
Won 3 small-field events last season and improved again to win listed handicap at Meydan in January. Not seen to best effect in similar event there later that month. Unraced on going softer than good.

6
Jocket Silks 6. BYRON FLYER
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Ian Williams
9
9-6
Useful hurdler/chaser who showed he can be competitive from this sort of mark last season. Respectable return at Newmarket 2 weeks ago but vulnerable to progressive sorts. Headgear re-fitted.

7
Jocket Silks 7. GETCHAGETCHAGETCHA
J: Adam Kirby
T: Clive Cox
4
9-6
Useful colt but is consistent rather than progressive and looks too high in the weights, on turf anyway. Off 167 days.

8
Jocket Silks 8. LE DON DE VIE
J: Ryan Moore
T: Hughie Morrison
4
9-6
Progressive at 3 and was fourth in Glorious Goodwood handicap on debut for this yard. Resumed winning ways back down in trip there before well held in the Cambridgeshire. Type to bounce back.

9
Jocket Silks 9. DURSTON
J: Jim Crowley
T: David Simcock
4
9-5
Won first 2 handicaps and better form in defeat after, just denied by subsequent St Leger runner-up Sir Ron Priestley at Goodwood before third in Newbury Group 3. Off 10 months and has been gelded.

10
Jocket Silks 10. DEJA (FR)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Peter Chapple-Hyam
5
9-5
Progressive sort who completed 4-timer on return at Kempton last summer. Had winning run ended at Newcastle 5 months on, though was unsuited by emphasis on speed, and remains with potential.

11
Jocket Silks 11. DOLPHIN VISTA (IRE)
J: Shane Kelly
T: Jim Boyle
7
9-5
Cambridgeshire winner in 2017. Picked up a couple of listed events for Ralph Beckett following 2 seasons. However, looks high enough in the weights back in a handicap starting out for new yard.

12
Jocket Silks 12. PROTECTED GUEST
J: Tom Queally
T: George Margarson
5
9-4
Useful gelding but has his quirks, and possibly should have won more than once last season. Likely to come on for Newmarket return but others make more appeal for win purposes.

13
Jocket Silks 13. KOEMAN
J: John Egan
T: Mick Channon
6
9-4
Ended 2019 with a win in Newbury handicap. Went close in handicap at Meydan in February before shaping amiss in Group 3 there later that month (reported to have bled from both nostrils).

14
Jocket Silks 14. INDIANAPOLIS (IRE)
J: Ben Curtis
T: James Given
5
9-4
Winner of 2 of 4 starts since fitted with cheekpieces, showing a good attitude in a steadily-run race at Leicester on final 4-y-o outing. Shaped as if needing run at Newmarket on return. Drawn wide.

15
Jocket Silks 15. JOHNNY DRAMA (IRE)
J: Joshua Bryan
T: Andrew Balding
5
9-4
Dual winner in Ireland for Ger Lyons and runner-up twice from 4 starts for this yard, including at York when last seen in October. However, didn't look especially hearty that day and drawn wide here.

16
Jocket Silks 16. GOOD BIRTHDAY (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-3
Won handicaps at Doncaster and Beverley last season. Fine third in the Cambridgeshire final 3-y-o start and shaped well when third at Newmarket on return. Worth another try at this trip.

17
Jocket Silks 17. SCARLET DRAGON
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Alan King
7
9-2
Useful gelding but winless on the Flat since his 3-y-o days. Off 158 days. Can race freely.

18
Jocket Silks 18. AL MUFFRIH (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
5
9-2
Improved again when winning the Zetland Gold Cup handicap at Redcar (10f) last spring, settling a bit better and battling well. Excuses at Haydock next time and remains unexposed. Off 11 months.

19
Jocket Silks 19. MEDAL WINNER (FR)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Archie Watson
4
9-1
Wide-margin winner of a 4-runner maiden at Brighton last summer and improved another chunk when making a winning handicap debut at Newcastle (10f) 17 days ago. Will stay and could be smart.

Analyst's Verdict

WEST END CHARMER raced only 3 times last season, but he took his form to another level when running away with a class 2 handicap at Newmarket on his belated return 12 days ago. Potentially well treated under a penalty, he can provide Mark Johnston with a fifth win in this. Medal Winner looked a smart prospect when making a winning handicap debut at Newcastle and is feared, along with Durston.

The race is a Class 2 Handicap contest which is run over a distance of 1 mile, 3 furlongs and 211 yards, and open to horses aged four years and older.

The 2018 renewal was won by the David Elsworth-trained Dash of Spice who won by a distance of 2 and ¼ lengths, under Champion Flat Jockey Silvestre de Sousa.

Sir Michael Stoute holds the most victories in the race for a trainer, having won the Royal Ascot handicap contest six times: Greek Palace  (1998), Blueprint (1999), Notable Guest (2005), Sugar Ray (2008), Opinion (2013) and Arab Spring (2014).

Jockey Pat Eddery has claimed the most victories Duke of Edinburgh Stakes, having won the race on four different occasions: Stratford Ponds (1989), Source of Light (1993), Son of Sharp Shot (1995) and Zaralaska (1997).
