Queen's Vase 2022 Racecard

The Queen’s Vase is a Group 2 race run over one mile, six furlongs and 34 yards. The race is open to three-year-olds.

3:05 Wed 15 Jun QUEEN'S VASE

Distance: 14f 34y Age: 3yo O Prize: £155,400 Going: Good to Firm

Analyst's Verdict

ELDAR ELDAROV has made a highly promising start to his career and looks sure to go on to better things now tackling 1¾m, so he looks the way to go, especially with his form proving strong. Nahanni didn't quite get the rub of the green in the Derby and still has better days ahead of him on that evidence, while others to consider are Baltic Bird and Anchorage.

Progressed again when resuming winning ways in 8-runner handicap at York (11.8f, good to firm) 33 days ago, suited by increase in trip. Open to further improvement and shouldn't be overlooked.

9-2
Useful performer at 2 who ran creditably when 4¾ lengths fifth of 7 to Hannibal Barca in Group 3 at the Curragh (10f) on reappearance, lacking the pace to make an impression. Retains potential over this much longer trip.

J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
3
9-2
Progressed again to get off the mark in 12-runner maiden at Yarmouth (11.5f, good) 20 days ago, responding well. Type to go on improving up in trip/grade and not taken lightly.

£480,000 Breeze-Up buy by Dubawi. Impressive when scoring by a wide margin on his debut at Nottingham and had no trouble following up in 10.2f novice at Newcastle 22 days ago, well on top finish. That form is working out well and he remains open to significant improvement now tackling 1¾m.

9-2
7f Ayr novice winner last September who improved again on first outing since leaving Kevin Ryan after 8 months off when second in 5-runner handicap at Bath (10.2f) 22 days ago, clear of rest. This asks for a good deal more, though.
6
jockey silks 6. HAFIT (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: Charlie Appleby
3
9-2
Superbly bred £2.1m colt who made a winning start on Newmarket's July course last August. Better form in defeat all 4 starts since, though didn't show the anticipated improvement upped in trip at Longchamp last time. Nevertheless, he still ought to be a factor fitted with first-time cheekpieces.
7
jockey silks 7. NAHANNI
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
3
9-2
Frankel colt who completed a hat-trick when making all in game fashion in Blue Riband Trial at Epsom (10f) in April. Far from disgraced when seventh in the Derby subsequently and remains open to improvement, especially now upped further in trip.
8
jockey silks 8. RULER LEGEND (IRE)
J: Jamie Spencer
T: J. A. Stack, Ireland
3
9-2
Showed improved form to get off the mark at the third attempt in 7-runner minor event at Naas (10f, good to soft) 39 days ago, keeping on well. Upped significantly in trip/grade but further improvement can't be ruled out.
9
jockey silks 9. ZECHARIAH (IRE)
J: C. T. Keane
T: Freddie & Martyn Meade

Made up into a useful performer last term, signing off with 1m Newbury novice win. However, has essentially been found out in better company both starts this season.

8-13
Frankel filly who took a big step forward when scoring by a wide margin in a 12f Kempton novice in May, forging clear in straight. Proved to be a disappointment back on turf in a Goodwood listed event since, though.

jockey silks 11. PERFECT ALIBI
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
3
8-13
Showed improved form to get off the mark in 10-runner maiden at Newbury (12f, good to soft) 15 days ago, looking well suited by the extra 2f and battling well. Hiked in grade now but she's the type to carry on progressing.

Improved to get off the mark at Nottingham in August and took her form up a level when making a winning handicap debut back there a couple of months later. Came on plenty for reappearance when third in Cheshire Oaks but more needed upped further in trip.

The Queen’s Vase is one of the older races in the calendar, first established in 1838. It was run as a Listed race between 1986 and 1990, and from 2014 to 2016, before being promoted to Group 2 in 2017 when its distance was reduced from two miles. During its history, the Queen’s Vase has also been open to older horses, while for much of the twentieth century it was known as the King’s Vase.  

The race is for staying three-year-olds who could develop into St Leger contenders later in the year. Recent winners Leading Light (2013) and Kew Gardens (2018) have gone on to success in the final classic, while Leading Light, along with Estimate (2012) and Stradivarius (2017), are among those to have returned to Royal Ascot a year later to win the Gold Cup.

Dual Gold Cup winner Le Moss was another top stayer to win the Queen’s Vase as a three-year-old. He was the best of Sir Henry’s Cecil’s record eight winners of the Queen’s Vase, which was run in the trainer’s memory in 2013 following his death in the week before Royal Ascot.

The leading trainer in the Queen’s Vase is Sir Henry Cecil, with eight winners. Cecil’s eight winners were Falkland (1972), General Ironside (1976), Le Moss (1978), Arden (1987), River God (1990), Jendali (1991), Stelvio (1995) and Endorsement (1999).

The leading jockeys in the Queen’s Vase since 1978 were Kevin Darley and Ryan Moore, with four winners. Kevin Darley’s four winners in the Queen’s Vase were And Beyond (2001), Shanty Star (2003), Melrose Avenue (2005) and Soapy Danger (2006). Ryan Moore’s four winners in the Queen’s Vase were Patkai (2008), Aloft (2012), Estimate (2015) and Kew Gardens (2018).
