1
Jocket Silks 1. DUBAI LOVE
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Saeed bin Suroor
3
9-7
Useful filly who landed UAE 1000 Guineas in January. Well held next time but quickly back on when keeping on third at listed level. Effective on turf and she's worth a look back on these shores.

2
Jocket Silks 2. NIGHT COLOURS (IRE)
J: Megan Nicholls
T: Simon & Ed Crisford
3
9-7
Progressive juvenile, who ended last campaign with narrow victory in Italian Group 2 (1m) in October. Underperformed on return at Kempton (10f) but drop back in trip a likely plus.

3
Jocket Silks 3. FESTIVE STAR
J: Jack Mitchell
T: Simon & Ed Crisford
3
9-5
Off the mark at second attempt at Yarmouth (1m) in August and stepped up again to add Italian listed race to the tally in September. Disappointed on heavy ground final start but it remains early days.

4
Jocket Silks 4. WEJDAN (FR)
J: James Doyle
T: William Haggas
3
9-5
Newbury maiden winner (6f) in August who built on that when fifth in Grp 2 Lowther at York 16 days later staying on. Did too much too soon at Newmarket final start and she retains potential up in trip

5
Jocket Silks 5. SEPARATE
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
3
9-4
Improved for step up to 7f during busy 2-y-o campaign, close-up third in Oh So Sharp at Newmarket (7f) on penultimate start. Heavy ground a plausible excuse final start but vulnerable to improvers.

6
Jocket Silks 6. SOFFIKA (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
3
9-3
Zoffany filly who overcame greenness to score on debut at Pontefract (6f) 12 months ago, going away at the finish. Good second in 7f Group 3 thereafter and shortlisted for return with more to come.

7
Jocket Silks 7. GRACEFUL MAGIC
J: Charles Bishop
T: Eve Johnson Houghton
3
9-3
Raced 8 times last year, winning 3 times. Best effort when ½-length second to Rose of Kildare in Firth of Clyde Stakes final start. Outpointed in 1000 Guineas last week and this another tough ask.

8
Jocket Silks 8. ALABAMA WHITMAN
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Richard Spencer
3
8-13
Smashing fourth in Albany Stakes 12 months ago and off the mark with minimum fuss in weak Carlisle minor event thereafter. Struggled in Group company thereafter but this more suitable on return.

9
Jocket Silks 9. HUBOOR (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Mark Johnston
3
8-11
Benefited from step up to 7f when landing Newmarket nursery in September. Solid fifth on return at Lingfield (7f, AW) 2 weeks ago and the step up to 1m promises to unlock further improvement.

10
Jocket Silks 10. AL RASMAH (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Richard Fahey
3
8-5
Winner on debut at Chester (6f) in August but disappointed in Group 3 final start last term. However, back on track when third on return/handicap debut at Haydock (1m) 10 days ago. Type to do better.

11
Jocket Silks 11. WALIYAK (FR)
J: David Egan
T: Roger Varian
3
8-4
Showed plenty in trio of starts as a 2-y-o, making it third time lucky on AW at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in November. Manner of that suggests she can do better now handicapping as a 3-y-o. Interesting.

12
Jocket Silks 12. ODYSSEY GIRL (IRE)
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Richard Spencer
3
8-2
Delivered with a well-timed run to double career tally at Lingfield (7f) in November. Consistent in defeat on AW this year, confirming stamina for 1m when second last time. However, this is tougher.

13
Jocket Silks 13. DECLARED INTEREST
J: Harry Bentley
T: Ralph Beckett
3
8-2
Imposing type who built on her exploits as a 2-y-o to make a winning return/handicap debut at Chelmsford (1m) 9 days ago. She looks a straightforward type who will go on improving. Claims.

14
Jocket Silks 14. ONASSIS (IRE)
J: Hayley Turner
T: Charlie Fellowes
3
8-1
Had a bit in hand when getting off the mark in 7f Newcastle nursery on final 2-y-o start. Has a cracking pedigree and may do better again but this demands another jolt of improvement.

15
Jocket Silks 15. MRS UPJOHN (FR)
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
3
8-0
Matched previous best to open account in Lingfield minor event (1m) in January. Not beaten far despite finishing last in French listed event in February but others make more appeal back in a handicap.

16
Jocket Silks 16. KALSARA
J: Raul Da Silva
T: Andrew Balding
3
8-0
Dug deep under pressure to score at second attempt at Kempton (7f) in August. No match for Quadrilateral at Newbury next time but she's low mileage herself and one to note on return/handicap bow.

17
Jocket Silks 17. AFRICAN DREAM
J: Kieran O'Neill
T: John Gosden
3
8-0
Oasis Dream filly who got off the mark with bit to spare at Lingfield (7f) in March. Pushed a useful filly close conceding 7 lb at Newbury (7f) last week and her opening mark is very appealing.

18
Jocket Silks 18. TIRITOMBA (IRE)
J: Jimmy Quinn
T: Hugo Palmer
3
7-11
Exceed And Excel filly improved steadily at 2 yrs, third in a 1m Kempton handicap in November. Has since changed yards and whilst she may do better, this looks too tough. Engaged 2.35 Beverley Weds.

Analyst's Verdict

AFRICAN DREAM improved despite meeting with defeat at Newbury earlier this month, pushing one close who had been placed at Group level as a juvenile. Handed a lenient opening mark on that evidence, John Gosden's filly is expected to make a bold bid. Soffika, Declared Interest and Waliyak are feared most.

The race is a Class 2 Handicap contest which is run over a distance of one mile, and is open to fillies aged three years. Prior to 2018 it was run as a Listed handicap but was downgraded by the British Horseracing Authority to comply with a new rule that no handicap race could carry Listed or Group race status.

The 2018 renewal was won by the Ed Walker-trained Agrotera, who took the race by a distance of 2 ¾ lengths, under a trademark hold-up ride from jockey Jamie Spencer.

Frankie Dettori has claimed the most victories in the saddle in the Sandringham Stakes, having achieved seven wins in the Royal Ascot contest: Palana (1994), Cask (1995), Brave Kris (1997), Independence (2001), Hold To Ransom (2003), Osaila (2015) and Persuasive (2016).
