Kensington Palace Stakes 2022 Racecard

The Kensington Palace Stakes takes place on second day (Wednesday) of the Royal Ascot Festival and is open to fillies and mares aged four years and older.

6:10 Wed 15 Jun KENSINGTON PALACE STAKES

Distance: 7f 213y Age: 4yo + Prize: £51,540 Going: Good to Firm

Analyst's Verdict

HAZIYA has made a bright start for Joseph O'Brien and another big effort could be on the way. White Moonlight made a pleasing comeback at Chelmsford after a long time off and could emerge as a big player. Improvised and State Occasion are a couple of others to consider.

9-12
Useful mare who won twice at pattern level as a 3-y-o in 2020. Not at quite the same level in a light 2021 campaign but shaped as if retaining plenty of ability when close-up third of 4 in Nottingham listed event in April. Below form in a similar event at Ayr since so must bounce back.

jockey silks 3. DUBAI LOVE
J: Pat Cosgrave
T: Saeed bin Suroor
5
9-8
Without a win since early-2020 but seemingly back on track returned to handicap company sporting first-time cheekpieces when a close-up sixth at Thirsk just under 7 weeks ago. Will need to take another step forward to land this.
4
jockey silks 4. FARHH TO SHY
J: Tom Queally
T: George Margarson
4
9-6
Won 3 times last year and picked up from where she left off scoring in the style of a progressive filly on return at Doncaster just under 7 weeks ago, quickening to lead inside final 1f. Up 6 lb but well worth her place in this.
5
jockey silks 5. NEPTUNE ROCK (IRE)
J: S. M. Crosse
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
4
9-6
Unable to quite make her mark at listed level but ran creditably on what was her handicap debut when fourth of 10 at Gowran (8f, good) 5 weeks ago. Probably no more than averagely treated so others make more appeal.
6
jockey silks 6. WHITE MOONLIGHT (USA)
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: Saeed bin Suroor
5
9-3
Won both starts in 2019 and proved she retains all her ability after 32 months off when third at Chelmsford just under a fortnight ago. That is likely to have taken the freshness out of her so she's one to look out for on this handicap debut.
7
jockey silks 7. ROSEMARY AND THYME
J: Tom Marquand
T: Hughie Morrison
4
9-3
Fairly useful filly who has been highly tried since winning an AW handicap last spring. Plenty to find on form.
8
jockey silks 8. RISING STAR
J: Neil Callan
T: Marco Botti
4
9-1
Showed benefit of reappearance run when scoring at Newcastle in March but recent efforts have been less encouraging, not looking the easiest of rides at Beverley 18 days ago. Will need to raise her game to feature.
9
jockey silks 9. PRETTY SWEET (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: George Boughey
4
9-1
Well backed but failed to give her running with Buick on board for the first time when last of 13 at Lingfield a couple of months ago, ending up very wide when making her headway. Back down in trip and first-time cheekpieces applied.
10
jockey silks 10. DON'T TELL CLAIRE
J: Jack Mitchell
T: Daniel & Claire Kubler
5
9-1
Won over C&D off 7 lb lower last September. Signed off 2021 with a couple of respectable efforts at listed level and ran creditably after 6 months off when 3 lengths fifth of 9 to Soft Whisper last month. Percentage call probably to look elsewhere.
11
jockey silks 11. FFION
J: Richard Kingscote
T: David Loughnane
5
9-0
Went winless throughout a very consistent spell in 2021, including when second in this corresponding event (yard also had the winner). Better than ever to land a first handicap success after 7 months off at Chester 6 weeks ago and she should continue in form.
12
jockey silks 12. MOBADRA
J: Non Runner
T: Roger Varian
4
9-0
NON RUNNER.
13
jockey silks 13. STATE OCCASION
J: Rossa Ryan
T: Ralph Beckett
4
9-0
Lightly raced for her age and proved better than ever after 7 months off when she was awarded the race at Chelmsford 18 days ago. Has an even better effort in her locker so not taken lightly back on the turf.
14
jockey silks 14. TALABAAT
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
4
8-12
Fairly useful form when scoring 3 times in France for Francois Rohaut in spring 2021 but her limitations were exposed later in the season. Little immediate promise on both starts in listed company for this yard and now moves into handicaps.
15
jockey silks 15. SERENADING
J: Jamie Spencer
T: James Fanshawe
6
8-12
Pair of AW wins last year and has remained in good form, finishing 2¼ lengths fourth of 9 to Soft Whisper at this course (8f, good to firm) latest. All 4 wins have come on the all-weather but she's one to look out for with Spencer booked.
16
jockey silks 16. SPIRIT OF THE BAY (IRE)
J: William Cox
T: Clive Cox
4
8-11
Massive improver during the second half of 2021, completing 4-timer at Sandown in September. Has hit the frame all 3 efforts this spring (head second of 9 to Soft Whisper here last month) so this likeable and tactically versatile sort is fancied to go well again.
17
jockey silks 17. HAZIYA (IRE)
J: M. P. Sheehy
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
4
8-11
Made a mockery of her opening mark on first start for this yard when winning 17-runner handicap at Leopardstown (8f, good) in April, and after a 13 Ib rise in the weights, backed up that effort when third at the Curragh next time. Remains unexposed at this trip and she's one to consider.
18
jockey silks 18. ISOLA ROSSA
J: Hayley Turner
T: James Fanshawe
4
8-10
Proved better than ever to regain winning thread at Lingfield last month, well on top finish having conceded first run. 4 lb rise not insurmountable, so she's fancied to be in the mix back on turf.
19
jockey silks 19. IMPROVISED (IRE)
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: David O'Meara
4
8-9
Three-time winner over 6f/7f last summer. Cut little ice on first couple of starts this year but bounced back to her best back up in trip to earn some black type when runner-up in a listed event at Musselburgh 10 days ago. Merits consideration back in handicap company.
20
jockey silks 20. RANDOM HARVEST (IRE)
J: Saffie Osborne
T: Ed Walker
4
8-6
Low-mileage filly who landed sole start at 2 yrs and made the frame both starts last term. All the better for return when just denied at Haydock last month (hit the front earlier than ideal but went down fighting) but not so good at York 15 days later. Must bounce back.
21
jockey silks 21. PROFESSIONAL WIDOW (IRE)
J: Luke Morris
T: Richard Spencer
4
8-5
Stepped up on reappearance when second of 6 over 9f at Sandown last month and merely needed to run to a similar level to open her account for the year at Haydock last week. Carries a penalty for that success but needs to take a step forward.
22
jockey silks 22. CELTIC EMPRESS
J: George Rooke
T: Heather Main
4
8-1
Raced too freely without her usual hood on return but quickly back on track to win at Newmarket (1m) last month despite a slow start. Undone by a rise in the weights since and it's best to look elsewhere racing from out of the weights.

Betting Forecast : 9/2 4.5 HAZIYA, 6/1 6 WHITE MOONLIGHT, 14/1 14 STATE OCCASION, 14/1 14 IMPROVISED, 16/1 16 ISOLA ROSSA, 18/1 18 SPIRIT OF THE BAY, 18/1 18 FFION, 18/1 18 FARHH TO SHY, 20/1 20 ANGEL POWER, 25/1 25 SERENADING, 25/1 25 PROFESSIONAL WIDOW, 25/1 25 PRETTY SWEET, 33/1 33 DUBAI LOVE, 33/1 33 DON't TELL CLAIRE, 33/1 33 RANDOM HARVEST, 33/1 33 NEPTUNE ROCK, 40/1 40 ROSEMARY AND THYME, 40/1 40 RISING STAR, 66/1 66 CELTIC EMPRESS, 66/1 66 TALABAAT, 499/1 499 SOFT WHISPER
