Analyst's Verdict

REACH FOR THE MOON missed the Derby with a setback but returned with an most-encouraging effort when runner-up in a listed event at Sandown 4 weeks ago. John & Thady Gosden's charge is clearly highly-regarded (holds a couple of Group 1 entries) and with this step up in trip holding no fears, he's a confident choice to get back to winning ways. Claymore's most recent effort is easily excused so he shades the vote for the forecast spot over Maksud.

9-2
Relatively cheap Breeze-Up purchase who made an impressive start when landing a Newmarket novice with ease last October. Improved on that when runner-up in Craven Stakes there on reappearance and his latest effort in the French 2000 Guineas is easily excused (worst of draw). Solid place claims.

9-2
Debut winner last summer who left his reappearance effort well behind sporting a first-time hood (still a shade keen) when runner-up in a listed event at Chester last month. Changed hands for £490,000 earlier this week but needs to take his form up a notch to have a say in proceedings.

9-2
Made a winning start in handicaps at Killarney last year but failed to really kick on, running as well as could be expected when sixth in Leopardstown 2000 Guineas Trial on reappearance. Cheekpieces applied but he looks up against it.

Showed promise for Roger Varian last year and stepped up markedly when bolting up in a novice at Kempton in March. Improved again when fourth in the Craven and similar form when 8½ lengths fifth to Desert Crown in Dante at York last month. Faces another uphill task.

jockey silks 5. MAKSUD
J: Tom Marquand
T: Hughie Morrison
3
9-2
Golden Horn colt who created a really good impression when landing 13-runner minor event at Windsor (10f) on debut in April. Took a big step forward when a close fourth in listed event at Goodwood since and he's likely to progress further. Interesting.

jockey silks 6. REACH FOR THE MOON
J: Frankie Dettori

9-2
Highly progressive juvenile who landed Solario Stakes at Sandown before excellent second in the Champagne at Doncaster (7f). Had a setback over the winter, but returned with an encouraging runner-up effort in a listed event at former course last month and he's potentially capable of even better.

Betting Forecast : 4/7 .57 REACH FOR THE MOON, 13/2 6.5 CLAYMORE, 10/1 10 MAKSUD, 11/1 11 CRESTA, 20/1 20 KINGMAX, 33/1 33 HOWTH

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.
