Queen Alexandra Stakes 2021 Racecard

The Queen Alexandra Stakes is a Flat horse race run every year on the final day (Saturday) of Royal Ascot.

6:10 Sat 19 Jun QUEEN ALEXANDRA STAKES

Distance: 21f 143y Age: 4yo + Prize: £35,100 Going: Soft

Analyst's Verdict

FALCON EIGHT looked better than ever when readily landing the Chester Cup on his reappearance and, with a strong pace on the cards, there's a good chance he can follow up. Barbados should be suited by the extreme test and Stratum is a big player if he can recapture his best form.

1
jockey silks 1. WITHHOLD
J: Jason Watson
T: Roger Charlton
8
9-7
Smart front-running stayer but hard to make a solid case for on the back of a lacklustre performance in the Ormonde Stakes at Chester.
2
jockey silks 2. MILDENBERGER
J: Franny Norton
T: Mark Johnston
6
9-5
Smart horse who ran with credit in a Saudi Arabian handicap when last seen 119 days ago. Should be thereabouts if he stays the longer trip.
3
jockey silks 3. WHO DARES WINS (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: Alan King
9
9-5
Smart dual-purpose performer who won this lst summer and should strip fitter for his return in a Chester handicap. Obviously can't be discounted, although this looks a stronger renewal.
4
jockey silks 4. STAG HORN
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
4
9-4
Smart front runner who signed off with a hat-trick last term and not disgraced when fourth behind Stradivarius in Sagaro Stakes at this course 52 days ago. Will face plenty of competition for lead.
5
jockey silks 5. BARBADOS (IRE)
J: Shane Foley
T: Mrs J. Harrington, Ireland
5
9-2
Hit the frame in last year's Irish St Leger and looked in top form when a staying on third in a Curragh handicap last time. Promises to be suited by this sort of test, so warrants plenty of respect.
6
jockey silks 6. CALLING THE WIND (IRE)
J: David Egan
T: Richard Hughes
5
9-2
Consistent handicapper last term but bit below best so far this term and likely to be outclassed by a few of these rivals.
7
jockey silks 7. CLEONTE (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Andrew Balding
8
9-2
Ended long losing run in 2m handicap at Kempton in March. At least respectable efforts since but he's well exposed and not really up to this level.
8
jockey silks 8. FALCON EIGHT (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: D. K. Weld, Ireland
6
9-2
Smart performer who was well on top at the finish when bagging the Chester Cup by 2 lengths on his return. This race should play out nicely for him, so he's the one to beat.
9
jockey silks 9. GLOBAL HEAT (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Saeed bin Suroor
5
9-2
Useful sort who was going the right way in Meydan earlier this year but doesn't look likely to relish this longer trip. Others preferred.
10
jockey silks 10. KLOUD GATE (FR)
J: Tom Queally
T: Gary Moore
9
9-2
Useful on the Flat and landed a double in handicap hurdles last month. Needs to improve markedly if he's to feature in this, however.
11
jockey silks 11. LETHAL STEPS
J: Non Runner
T: Mrs Denise Foster, Ireland
6
9-2
One-time useful handicapper who has little recent form under either code. Down the field here earlier in the week and set for another struggle. NON RUNNER.
12
jockey silks 12. MORANDO (FR)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
8
9-2
Smart sort who looked as good as ever when third of 6 despite meeting trouble in a listed event at Goodwood last month. Needs to prove him at this markedly longer trip, though.
13
jockey silks 13. SCARAMANGA (IRE)
J: Megan Nicholls
T: Paul Nicholls
6
9-2
Useful hurdler who ran well in a few Flat handicaps last summer. Successful back over hurdles at Sandown recently, but big leap forward required now.
14
jockey silks 14. STRATUM
J: Ryan Moore
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
8
9-2
Followed a winning return at Gowran with an underwhelming fifth in Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan 55 days ago. Likely to stay this far and has a chance on his best form.
15
jockey silks 15. THE GRAND VISIR
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Ian Williams
7
9-2
Ascot Stakes winner in 2019 and runner-up in this last year. Respectable efforts both outings this year but looks vulnerable to more talented rivals.
16
jockey silks 16. TO BE WILD (IRE)
J: Robert Tart
T: Jane Chapple-Hyam
8
9-2
Has returned to form of late but he's no more than a handicapper and hasn't won since 2016.
17
jockey silks 17. GREEN BOOK (FR)
J: Ben Curtis
T: Venetia Williams
4
9-1
Off the mark when landing gamble impressively in Chester Cup consolation on return. Undone by a rise at Haydock next time and this is asking too much.
18
jockey silks 18. MONETE (GER)
J: Ray Dawson
T: Max Young
4
8-10
Fair on the Flat in Germany but just modest over hurdles for current yard, so almost impossible to make a case for in this company.
19
jockey silks 19. SINGLE (IRE)
J: George Bass
T: Mick Channon
4
8-10
Likeable handicapper who was runner-up at Salisbury last time. Out of her depth in this company, however.
20
jockey silks 20. TABLE MOUNTAIN
J: Laura Pearson
T: Tom Symonds
4
8-10
Fairly useful stayer who is fit from a creditable hurdling run. Visor and tongue tie on first time. Stiff task.

The race is open to horses aged four years or older and is run over a distance of 2 miles, 5 furlongs and 143 yards.

The race is named after Queen Alexandra and was established in 1864, originally under the name of the Alexandra Plate and later as the Alexandra Stakes before changing to the Queen Alexandra Stakes.

The distance has also changed, having previously being contested over 2 miles, 6 furlongs and 34 yards – but is was shortened as part of a track change at Ascot in 2005.

The Queen Alexandra Stakes, the traditional curtain closer of the meeting, sometimes features horses that have run in the Ascot Stakes in the first day of Royal Ascot. The last one to win the Queen Alexandra Stakes after running in the Ascot Stakes was Simenon in 2012.

The Queen Alexandra is Britain’s longest flat race, marginally longer than the Marathon Handicap run at Pontefract, so it often attracts horses from the National Hunt sphere.

The leading horse in this race is Brown Jack who won it six times over six consecutive years (1929-1934).

Four jockeys have won this race three times, with the most recent to achieve that feat being Ryan Moore: on Bergo (2010), Simenon (2012) and Pique Sous (2014)

The leading trainer is Dick Hern who won this race four times – Grey of Falloden (1965), Balinger (1980) and Cuff Link (1994, 1995).
