Sandringham Stakes 2022 Racecard

The Sandringham Stakes is a Flat horse race run every year on the fourth day (Friday) of the Royal Ascot meeting.

5:00 Fri 17 Jun SANDRINGHAM STAKES

Distance: 8f 0y Age: 3yo O Prize: £51,540 Going: Good to Firm

Analyst's Verdict

HEREDIA needed plenty in hand of her mark to overcome the trouble she met at York last time so a 7 lb rise may not prevent her stretching her unbeaten record to 4, particularly as the longer trip this afternoon shapes as if it should suit. Fresh Hope represents a trainer/jockey combination which has won this twice in recent years so she's a must for the shortlist. Invigilate and Persist are a few of many other possibles in this ultra-competitive 3-y-o fillies' handicap.

ODDS
1
jockey silks 1. CIGAMIA (USA)
J: James Doyle
T: W. McCreery, Ireland
3
9-9
Useful dual winner, gaining the latter success in a 3-runner race over 1m at Killarney last month. Raced only on good or softer so likely ground conditions an unknown. An improved effort will be needed to overcome this mark.
2
jockey silks 2. ZANBAQ (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Roger Varian
3
9-9
Third in a 1m Goodwood listed either side of novice wins at Kempton and Haydock (both 7f). Likely she has more to offer now moving into handicap company.
3
jockey silks 3. HEREDIA
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
3
9-8
Dark Angel filly who is 3-3, doing very well to keep that unbeaten record intact after meeting trouble in 7f York handicap on reappearance, quickening up smartly to nail the reopposing Espressoo near the finish. Pedigree provides hope that she'll stay 1m. Leading claims.
4
jockey silks 4. MASHAAER (IRE)
J: Ray Dawson
T: Henry Spiller
3
9-6
Runner-up on all 4 starts, showing improved and useful form in Pretty Polly at Newmarket (1¼m) last month. Has been turned over at short odds in a novice since, though. Cheekpieces on now going down in trip for handicap debut.
5
jockey silks 5. LOVE INTEREST
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: David O'Meara
3
9-5
AW debut winner last autumn and better form in defeat this term, particularly when 2½ lengths third of 12 to Fonteyn in listed race at York (1m, good to firm) 35 days ago. Open to further progress. Respected.
6
jockey silks 6. WILDERNESS GIRL (IRE)
J: Harry Davies
T: Andrew Balding
3
9-3
Goodwood maiden winner last summer but not seen since finishing seventh in Group 3 Prestige back there at the end of August. Not obviously well treated for this handicap debut/reappearance but her rider's 5 lb claim is certainly an asset.
7
jockey silks 7. MINWAH (USA)
J: Tom Marquand
T: Marco Botti
3
9-3
Fairly useful maiden at up to 9.5f on AW in UAE for Doug Watson. Plenty of improvement will be needed if she's to a make a successful handicap/turf debut for her new stable. Hard to make a case for.
8
jockey silks 8. CRENELLE
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
3
9-2
Turned over at short odds on AW debut but made no mistake in 1m Newmarket maiden 11 days later. Failed to make the expected progress when 9¾ lengths third (Mashaaer 5 lengths ahead in second) in Pretty Polly back at Newmarket since but retains potential now handicapping back over 1m.
9
jockey silks 9. ESPRESSOO
J: Joe Fanning
T: Charlie & Mark Johnston
3
9-0
Progressive this term, winning Ayr maiden and Chelmsford handicap (both 7f). Another step forward when pipped by Heredia at York (7f again) since. May struggle to turn the tables on that one but 1m should suit and she's an each-way contender.
10
jockey silks 10. LULLABY (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Made it fifth time lucky when just holding on in 1m Leopardstown maiden on reappearance in April. Limitations seemingly exposed back in Group races since but she should find life a bit easier at this level.
11
jockey silks 11. KINGS JOY
J: Robert Havlin
T: John & Thady Gosden
3
8-13
AW debut winner in December and improved efforts in defeat since, just failing in 1m Kempton handicap 16 days ago. Dettori seemingly prefers Crenelle but she remains open to improvement.
12
jockey silks 12. MIDHEAVEN (IRE)
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: David O'Meara
3
8-12
Much improved when off the mark at the third attempt in novice at Lingfield (7f, AW) and creditable efforts in defeat this term, although she was behind Heredia and Espressoo at York on her penultimate start. First attempt at 1m.
13
jockey silks 13. GOLDEN SPICE (USA)
J: Luke Morris
T: George Margarson
3
8-10
Filly who is going the right way, making it 4 wins in 6 starts this term (all 7f) when merely pushed out to make all at Leicester 17 days ago. 1m asks a different question of one who isn't short of speed but she's dangerous to discount in her current mood.
14
jockey silks 14. ELLADE
J: Pat Dobbs
T: Richard Hannon
3
8-9
Second success of the year when edging ahead close home in 7f Newbury handicap 17 days ago. Fine back at 1m but suspicion she'll prove vulnerable to less-exposed types.
15
jockey silks 15. GATECRASHER GIRL
J: Ben Curtis
T: William Knight
3
8-8
Pulled out more improvement when making it 3-3 in handicaps (all around 1m) at Doncaster 13 days ago. Raised another 4 lb but she should have more to offer.
16
jockey silks 16. WASHRAA (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Owen Burrows
3
8-8
Has improved with each start, winning handicaps at Wolverhampton (7f) and Nottingham (1m) this spring. Ought to be competitive if that trend of race-by-race progression continues.
17
jockey silks 17. PERSIST
J: Cieren Fallon
T: William Haggas
3
8-7
Fairly useful form, relishing the step up to 1m when getting off the mark in 1m Ripon maiden on reappearance, well on top at the finish. Likely has more to come for top stable now moving into handicap company.
18
jockey silks 18. GOLDEN MAYFLOWER
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Amy Murphy
3
8-7
Golden Horn filly who made a successful start at Lingfield (7f) in October. Shaped well when second over 1m at Kempton on reappearance but she has disappointed in listed company over 1¼m at Newbury since. Has cheekpieces added to tongue strap. Clearly early days but others are more obvious.
19
jockey silks 19. DISCRETION
J: David Egan
T: Harry & Roger Charlton
3
8-7
Winner of 1¼m novice at Beverley and 1m handicap at Carlisle last month, keeping on well at latter despite hanging to her left. Yet another in this line-up who could have more to offer.
20
jockey silks 20. NO NAY NICKI (IRE)
J: Barry McHugh
T: Richard Fahey
3
8-7
Left debut well behind when a wide-margin winner of 6f Pontefract fillies' maiden last June. Not seen again this spring but she's acquitted herself with credit in a Doncaster novice and York listed (both 7f). Leaves impression she'll stay 1m now handicapping.
21
jockey silks 21. TAMARAMA
J: David Probert
T: Charles Hills
3
8-7
Some good efforts prior to making all in 8.5f Beverley maiden last month and she followed up back in handicap company at Ripon since. This much tougher but she is heading in the right direction.
22
jockey silks 22. MY SILENT SONG
J: Rob Hornby
T: Ed Dunlop
3
8-7
Both wins over 1m at Pontefract, getting up in the dying strides for latter success 11 days ago. 5 lb penalty now stepping up significantly in class. A good deal of improvement will be needed.
23
jockey silks 23. MORGAN FAIRY (IRE)
J: Rowan Scott
T: William Haggas
3
8-6
Won 1m Kempton maiden on third and final 2-y-o start. Creditable third (Kings Joy nose ahead in second) in 1m handicap back at Kempton on her recent reappearance. Will need to have come on a fair bit for that.
24
jockey silks 24. INVIGILATE
J: Jimmy Quinn
T: Sir Michael Stoute
3
8-6
Won a 7f Leicester novice last autumn and improved again when length second of 7 to the reopposing Washraa in 1m Nottingham handicap on her reappearance 6 weeks ago. It's unlikely this well-bred filly from a very good stable will have reached her limit after only 4 starts.
25
jockey silks 25. FRESH HOPE
J: Hayley Turner
T: Charlie Fellowes
3
8-6
Didn't find much after travelling powerfully when beaten at shorts on her 1¼m reappearance and proved suited by the drop back to 1m when making a successful handicap debut at Doncaster 5 weeks ago. More to come from her and much respected for a trainer/jockey with a very good recent record in this.
26
jockey silks 26. PRESENT MOMENT (IRE)
J: Tyler Heard
T: Michael Bell
3
8-5
Took a 1m Redcar novice last October on just her second start. Raced freely and weakened to finish well held in 1¼m Goodwood listed on her reappearance 4 weeks ago. Drop back to 1m likely to help now handicapping.
27
jockey silks 27. PINK CARNATION
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
3
8-4
Has progressed with each start, proving suited by the step up to 1m when seeing off 8 rivals in Nottingham maiden 31 days ago. Cheekpieces added. Not obviously well treated from this opening mark but she should have more to come.
28
jockey silks 28. AUNT BETHANY (IRE)
J: Thore Hammer Hansen
T: Archie Watson
3
8-2
Won a maiden over 7f on Newcastle's AW last September. Creditable second of 6 in 1m Newmarket handicap 5 weeks ago but she'll need to pull out more for blinkers if she's to make her presence felt in this much deeper handicap.
29
jockey silks 29. AUGMENTARIUM (IRE)
J: Josephine Gordon
T: David Loughnane
3
8-0
Won 7f Kempton novice last autumn. Creditable 2¼ lengths fourth of 10 to Gatecrasher Girl in handicap at Doncaster (1m, good to firm, 9/1) on reappearance 13 days ago. 2 lb out of the weights here. Likely best to look elsewhere.

Betting Forecast : 8/1 8 HEREDIA, 10/1 10 PERSIST, 12/1 12 INVIGILATE, 12/1 12 FRESH HOPE, 14/1 14 CRENELLE, 18/1 18 GATECRASHER GIRL, 20/1 20 DISCRETION, 22/1 22 WASHRAA, 22/1 22 ZANBAQ, 22/1 22 KINGS JOY, 25/1 25 LULLABY, 25/1 25 PINK CARNATION, 28/1 28 ESPRESSOO, 28/1 28 TAMARAMA, 28/1 28 LOVE INTEREST, 33/1 33 GOLDEN SPICE, 33/1 33 WILDERNESS GIRL, 33/1 33 CIGAMIA, 40/1 40 NO NAY NICKI, 40/1 40 MORGAN FAIRY, 50/1 50 ELLADE, 66/1 66 AUNT BETHANY, 66/1 66 PRESENT MOMENT, 66/1 66 GOLDEN MAYFLOWER, 80/1 80 MASHAAER, 100/1 100 AUGMENTARIUM, 100/1 100 MY SILENT SONG, 100/1 100 MIDHEAVEN, 100/1 100 MINWAH

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).
