Jocket Silks 1. ADDEYBB (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
6
9-0
Won the Wolferton at this meeting last year and enjoyed a fantastic spell in Australia earlier this year, winning 2 Group 1s over this trip. Suspect he'll need some rain if he's to prevail here.

2
Jocket Silks 2. BANGKOK (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-0
Exuberant sort who scored impressively at Lingfield (all wins have come at around this trip) in February. Again proved too keen in the Winter Derby latest and this is a tough ask. Tongue tie back on.

3
Jocket Silks 3. BARNEY ROY
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
6
9-0
Won the 2017 St James's Palace and back to that sort of form in Dubai earlier this year, winning Group 1 over 9f when last seen. Probably going to need a career-best to come out on top in this.

4
Jocket Silks 4. HEADMAN
J: Jason Watson
T: Roger Charlton
4
9-0
Went from strength to strength last term, winning a very good Newbury handicap and 2 Group 3s in France over this trip. Not seen to best effect in the Irish Champion final start and has more to offer.

5
Jocket Silks 5. JAPAN
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
4
9-0
Proved a high-class 3-y-o, winning the King Edward VII here, Grand Prix de Paris and Juddmonte before a mighty effort in fourth in the Arc. Might not have reached his peak and the one to beat here.

6
Jocket Silks 6. LORD NORTH (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: John Gosden
4
9-0
His form has taken off since the autumn and he returned with another big win in the Brigadier Gerard at Haydock, edging out Elarqam. Well worth a crack at this and could go really well.

7
Jocket Silks 7. MEHDAAYIH
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden

8-11
Did well last term, winning 3 times, including 12f Fillies' Group 2 in France. Good effort in the Champion Stakes here when last seen but faces a stiff re-introduction.

Analyst's Verdict

There is more to come from HEADMAN this year and he could offer a bit of value against Japan. He went from strength to strength last term and wasn't seen to best effect in the Irish Champion on his final start. There is a Group 1 in him for sure, as there are more in Juddmonte-winner Japan, who ran a cracker in the Arc when last seen. Lord North is on the up and could be set for a huge effort.

The Prince of Wales’s Stakes has existed in its current form since 1968 and was given Group 2 status when the pattern race system was introduced in 1971. It was promoted to a Group 1 in 2000, since when it has been open to older horses only.  

The race is the most important middle-distance contest of the Royal meeting for older horses and is a chance to compete amongst themselves at Group 1 level before races like the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown and the Juddmonte International at York later in the summer, for which three-year-olds are also eligible.

The outstanding Dubai Millennium was an eight-length winner in 2000 on what proved to be his final start, while other notable winners include dual winner Mtoto in 1987 and 1988, former 1000 Guineas winner Bosra Sham in 1997 and former Oaks winner Ouija Board in 2006. Mtoto went on to win the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes back at Ascot after winning the Prince of Wales for the second time, as have several others since, including the 2018 winner Poet’s Word.

The leading trainers in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes since 1978 are Sir Henry Cecil and Saeed bin Suroor, with four winners apiece. Sir Henry Cecil’s four winners were Gunner B (1978), Perpendicular (1992), Placerville (1993) and Bosra Sham (1997). Saeed bin Suroor’s four winners were Faithful Son (1998), Dubai Millennium (2000), Fantastic Light (2001) and Grandera (2002).

The leading jockeys in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes since 1978 are Willie Carson and Pat Eddery, with four winners.  Willie Carson’s four winners in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes were Ela-Mana-Mou (1980), Morcon (1984) and Muhtarram (1994 and 1995). Pat Eddery’s four winners in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes were English Spring (1986), Two Timing (1989), Batshoof (1990) and Placerville (1993).
