1
Jocket Silks 1. ABOVE (FR)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Archie Watson
3
9-1
Useful colt who won 3 times as a 2-y-o but limitations exposed upped in class last 2 starts. Off 8 months.

2
Jocket Silks 2. CELESTIN (FR)
J: James Doyle
T: Fabrice Chappet, France
3
9-1
Listed winner as a 2-y-o and took a big step forward when fourth in the French 2000 Guineas at Deauville 17 days ago. Respected on that form and headgear fitted back down in trip.

3
Jocket Silks 3. FLEETING PRINCE (IRE)
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: Charles Hills
3
9-1
Already looks a much better 3-y-o than 2-y-o, improving again when fourth in Group 3 at Newcastle 2 weeks ago, but likely to find this company too hot.

4
Jocket Silks 4. KING LEONIDAS
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
3
9-1
Son of Kingman who made a striking debut in 7f Newmarket novice. Found a chunk of improvement to give weight away to another good prospect on return there 11 days ago and looks one to keep onside.

5
Jocket Silks 5. KING OF ATHENS (USA)
J: Sean Levey
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-1
Took 5 attempts to get off the mark though did show improved form when a close second in listed race at Leopardstown 9 days ago. Will find this a lot tougher.

6
Jocket Silks 6. LORD OF THE LODGE (IRE)
J: Ben Curtis
T: K. R. Burke
3
9-1
Three-time 6f winner who signed off 2-y-o season with excellent second in Gimcrack Stakes at York. Didn't need to match that form to land minor event at Newcastle in February. Up in trip.

7
Jocket Silks 7. MISTER SNOWDON
J: Shane Kelly
T: Richard Hughes
3
9-1
Justified heavy support at Wolverhampton in March (6f) and got the better of another good prospect when defying a penalty at Yarmouth (7f) 2 weeks ago. Big improvement required but has potential.

8
Jocket Silks 8. MOLATHAM
J: Jim Crowley
T: Roger Varian
3
9-1
Quickly progressed into a smart 2-y-o, following up maiden win at York when beating subsequent 2000 Guineas runner-up Wichita in listed race at Doncaster. Excuses in Group 3 at Newmarket final start.

9
Jocket Silks 9. MONARCH OF EGYPT (USA)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-1
Chased home Siskin in Railway and Phoenix at the Curragh last term. Shaped well when a never-nearer seventh in the Irish 2000 Guineas at the Curragh on Friday and down in class here.

10
Jocket Silks 10. MYSTERY POWER (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Richard Hannon
3
9-1
Winner of Group 2 Superlative at Newmarket (July Course) on second start and similar form when runner-up in Mill Reef at Newbury. Well held either side of that but is back down in class.

11
Jocket Silks 11. REPARTEE (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Kevin Ryan
3
9-1
Powered clear to make a winning debut at York (6f) and better form when placed in Gimcrack (over the same C&D) and valuable sales race at Doncaster. Should stay this far but more needed. Off 9 months.

12
Jocket Silks 12. ROPEY GUEST
J: Tom Queally
T: George Margarson
3
9-1
Useful form at listed/pattern level, placed in 3 Group 3s on last 3 starts in the autumn, but hard to see him breaking his maiden in this.

13
Jocket Silks 13. SYMBOLIZE (IRE)
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
3
9-1
Built on winning debut when close fourth in Windsor Castle at this meeting, and similar form when fifth in Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. Should stay but difficult ask after 10 months off.

14
Jocket Silks 14. VENTURA LIGHTNING (FR)
J: Tony Hamilton
T: Richard Fahey
3
9-1
Useful colt who wasn't disgraced in Group 3 at Newcastle on return but hard to fancy in this company with stamina not guaranteed.

15
Jocket Silks 15. FINAL SONG (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Saeed bin Suroor
3
8-12
Made winning debut at Ascot before third to Raffle Prize in Queen Mary/Duchess of Cambridge. Another sound effort when fourth in 1000 Guineas at Newmarket 11 days ago and 7f probably her best trip.

Analyst's Verdict

MOLATHAM had excuses in the Autumn Stakes at Newmarket on his final start and the form of his listed win at Doncaster prior to that reads very well. He remains a very smart prospect and is narrowly preferred to King Leonidas, who looked a pattern performer in the making on his comeback at Newmarket. Monarch of Egypt, Celestin and Final Song also need considering back down in class.

The race was established when a three-year cycle of races called the Triennial Stakes was discontinued shortly after World War I. The Triennial Stakes had comprised a race for two-year-olds over 5 furlongs, a race for three-year-olds over 7 furlongs, and a race for four-year-olds over 2 miles and horses would return each year to compete over the increasing distances.

The Jersey Stakes replaced the second leg of the Triennial Stakes in 1919, and was named after the 4th Earl of Jersey, who served as the Master of the Buckhounds in the late eighteenth century.

The race is now run on the final day of the five-day Royal Ascot meeting (Saturday).

No trainer has trained more winners of the Jersey Stakes than Sir Michael Stoute, who has six winners to his name, Etienne Gerard (1977), Hard Fought (1980), Zilzal (1989), Among Men (1997), Jeremy (2006), and Expert Eye (2018).

Sir Gordon Richards: Rattlin the Reefer (1929), Medieval Knight (1934), Theft (1935), Cave Man (1938), Nebuchadnezzar (1947), Rhinehart (1953), and the great Lester Piggott: Favorita (1961), The Creditor (1963), Young Christopher (1964), Gay Fandango (1975), Hard Fought (1980), Rasa Penang (1981) are the joint leading jockeys in the race with six wins each.
