Hampton Court Stakes 2021 Racecard

The Hampton Court Stakes is a Group 3 Flat horse race, held at the Royal Ascot meeting every June. It is scheduled as the second race on day three of the five-day event, which is the Thursday.

3:05 Thu 17 Jun HAMPTON COURT STAKES

Distance: 9f 212y Age: 3yo O Prize: £44,400 Going: Firm

Analyst's Verdict

MOHAAFETH, a late omission from the Derby after the ground eased, was seriously impressive when easily accounting for Secret Protector in a Newmarket listed race last month and ought to take a good deal of stopping. Movin Time's ready defeat of Kemari in a Newmarket maiden looks even better in light of that one's wins since and he can provide the main threat ahead of the penalised One Ruler.

1
jockey silks 1. ONE RULER (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
3
9-4
1m Group 3 winner at 2 and runner-up in Futurity at Doncaster final start. Not disgraced when sixth in the 2000 Guineas and Derby this term. Drop back to 1¼m could help. Respected despite penalty.
2
jockey silks 2. MATCHLESS (IRE)
J: Seamie Heffernan
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Useful form. Ridden aggressively in blinkers (retained) and faded into a 7 lengths fifth in Gallinule at the Curragh latest. Others are preferred.

J: Jim Crowley
T: William Haggas
3
9-0
Took a huge step forward when making it 3-3 for the year in listed contest at Newmarket (1¼m, good to firm) 27 days ago, coming clear as his rider pleased. Looks a colt of huge potential.
4
jockey silks 4. MOVIN TIME
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
3
9-0
Shaped well in pair of 1m AW novices last autumn and took another step forward when readily seeing off Kemari (won easily since) at Newmarket (1¼m) 25 days ago. Can make his mark at higher level.
5
jockey silks 5. NOTRE BELLE BETE
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Darren Bunyan, Ireland
3
9-0
Useful form when fourth in 7f listed events on first 2 starts but beaten in a 1m maiden at the Curragh last time. Up in trip. Bit of a surprise if a first win arrives here.
6
jockey silks 6. PYTHAGORAS (IRE)
J: Paul Hanagan
T: Richard Fahey
3
9-0
Three wins in productive 2-y-o campaign, including 1m Pontefract listed on heavy. Ran as well as could be expected when 6¼ lengths sixth to Hurricane Lane in Dante at York latest. Has a bit to find.
7
jockey silks 7. ROMAN EMPIRE (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Gowran maiden winner last autumn. Disappointed on return but firmly back on track when fourth in Dante at York, seemingly used as a pacemaker but not headed until inside the final 1f.
8
jockey silks 8. SECRET PROTECTOR (USA)
J: James Doyle
T: Charlie Appleby
3
9-0
Smart War Front colt who has finished second in a pair of listed events at Newmarket since returning to Britain, albeit no match for Mohaafeth latterly. Hard to see him turning the tables.
9
jockey silks 9. SNAPRAETEREA (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Useful colt who bagged a 7f Naas listed in May. Didn't quite see out 1¼m when 4¾ lengths third in Gallinule at the Curragh (heavy) next time. Fair fifth back at 7f latest. Others stronger.
10
jockey silks 10. THE ROSSTAFARIAN (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Hugo Palmer
3
9-0
Stylish winner of soft-ground 1m Salisbury novice on debut in October. Better form in defeat at listed/pattern level since but he'll need to improve significantly for 1¼m to have a big say here.

Betting Forecast : 5/4 1.25 MOHAAFETH, 6/1 6 ONE RULER, 6/1 6 MOVIN TIME, 15/2 7.5 ROMAN EMPIRE, 12/1 12 SECRET PROTECTOR, 33/1 33 SNAPRAETEREA, 40/1 40 PYTHAGORAS, 50/1 50 NOTRE BELLE BETE, 50/1 50 MATCHLESS, 50/1 50 THE ROSSTAFARIAN

It is run over a distance of 1m 2f (or 1 mile 1 furlong 212 yards, to be exact) and is open to three-year-old horses of both sexes, with level weights of 9 st for colts, and a 3 lb allowance for fillies, meaning they carry 8 st 11 lb. Horses that have won Group 1 or Group 2 races are ineligible.

The race has existed in several different guises over the years, and was originally run over 1m 4f. It was given Listed status in 1999, and cut back to its current distance a year later. Since the Royal Ascot meeting in 2002 – the first five-day meeting, to mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II – it has been known as the Hampton Court Stakes, after the Tudor royal palace, and the regal name has been retained ever since. Most recently, it was upgraded to a Grade 2 event in 2011, and was known until 2017 as the Tercentenary Stakes, to mark 300 years of Ascot Racecourse.

Several jockeys and trainers have managed three wins in the Hampton Court Stakes, but since the turn of the millennium one jockey and one trainer have managed four wins – most recently when teaming up in 2020. The trainer is Aidan O’Brien (2004, 2005, 2018, 2020) and the jockey is Ryan Moore (2009, 2014, 2018, 2020), the retained rider for Ballydoyle.
