Wokingham Stakes 2022 Racecard

The Wokingham Stakes is a six-furlong handicap run every year on the final day of Royal Ascot. The race, which is one of the great Heritage Handicaps over the course of the season, is open to horses aged three or older.

5:00 Sat 18 Jun WOKINGHAM STAKES

Distance: 6f 0y Age: 3yo + Prize: £94,500 Going: Good to Firm

Analyst's Verdict

Marco Botti's SILVER SAMURAI has proved a revelation since dropped back to 6f and is fancied to complete a quick hat-trick under a 5 lb penalty after showing an excellent turn of foot to score at Haydock and Newbury. Fresh came home runner-up in this event 12 months ago and seems sure to have another big say on the back of his good Victoria Cup fourth here. Blackrod, Summerghand and Bielsa are all firmly in the picture too in what promises to be a typically competitive Wokingham.

J: Ryan Moore
T: David Evans
4
9-12
Took this event 12 months ago but he's yet to fire in three runs this term, only eighth in 1895 Duke of York Stakes at York (6f) 38 days ago. Needs a big step forward.
2
jockey silks 2. ROYAL COMMANDO (IRE)
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: Charles Hills
5
9-10
Off 10 months but not disgraced when fourth of 6 to Aldaary in listed race at Haydock (7.2f) 42 days ago, not enjoying a clear run. Makes handicap debut but others look better treated at these weights.

jockey silks 3. URBAN BEAT (IRE)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Patrick Murtagh, Ireland
7
9-9
Off 7 months before coming in eighth of 9 in Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh (6f) 28 days ago. Cheekpieces back on with a big step forward required.
4
jockey silks 4. VOLATILE ANALYST (USA)
J: Callum Rodriguez
T: Keith Dalgleish
5
9-8
Dual 6f/7f winner in 2022 but only twelfth of 14 in conditions event at Newcastle (6f) 64 days ago. Others are preferred.

J: William Buick
T: Eve Johnson Houghton
4
9-8
Course winner who wasn't disgraced when sixth of 19 to Blackrod in handicap at Newmarket (6f) 49 days ago. His slow starts are proving an issue though.
6
jockey silks 6. ASJAD
J: P. J. McDonald
T: James Horton
4
9-7
Has taken his form up a notch for his new yard, and he made it 2-3 in 21-runner handicap at York (6f) 27 days ago. Still low mileage, so he's well in the mix under a 5 lb penalty.
7
jockey silks 7. PRINCE LANCELOT
J: Stephane Pasquier
T: Fabrice Chappet, France
4
9-6
Very useful French colt who arrives on a hat-trick after novice and listed wins at Chantilly. Much respected on his handicap debut.
8
jockey silks 8. COMMANCHE FALLS
J: David Probert
T: Michael Dods
5
9-6
Four-time 6f winner in 2021. Looked unsuited by the track when thirteenth in handicap at Epsom (6f) 14 days ago, so he shouldn't be discounted for good yard.
9
jockey silks 9. TABDEED
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Archie Watson
7
9-5
C&D winner who arrives in decent nick, third of 9 to Raasel in listed race at Haydock (5f) 21 days ago. No forlorn hope.
10
jockey silks 10. WARRIOR BRAVE
J: C. T. Keane
T: Ross O'Sullivan, Ireland
4
9-4
Useful gelding who came in respectable third of 6 in conditions event at Fairyhouse (6f) 22 days ago. Blinkers back on with plenty to find at these weights.
11
jockey silks 11. SUMMERGHAND (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: David O'Meara
8
9-4
Very useful sprinter at his best. 25/1, posted his best of the season when sixth of 22 in handicap at York (6f) 38 days ago. Visor back on, and bold showing is on the cards off an easing mark.
12
jockey silks 12. BATWAN (FR)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: N. Caullery, France
7
9-4
Dual 6f winner at Meydan in the winter and not disgraced ater 10 weeks off when close seventh of 10 in listed race at Chantilly (6f) 46 days ago. French challenger can't be totally dismissed.
13
jockey silks 13. LAMPANG (IRE)
J: James McDonald
T: Tim Easterby
5
9-4
Off 7 months/gelded before making a winning return in 6f handicap at Ayr 54 days ago. Back up 4 lb but he's one for the shortlist.
14
jockey silks 14. MR WAGYU (IRE)
J: Jason Hart
T: John Quinn
7
9-4
Likeable sprinter who resumed winning ways in 6f handicap at Epsom 14 days ago. Saddles 5 lb penalty but this five-time scorer in 2021 can't be taken lightly.
15
jockey silks 15. QUARANTINE DREAMS (IRE)
J: William James Lee
T: K. J. Condon, Ireland
4
9-3
Irish sprinter who arrives on back of creditable fourth in listed race at Naas (5f) 34 days ago, running on late. Visor back on and needs considering on his handicap debut with this return to 6f a plus.
16
jockey silks 16. GULLIVER
J: Adam Kirby
T: David O'Meara
8
9-3
Winless since 2020, but he resumed after 8 months off with good third of 21 to Asjad in handicap at York (6f) 27 days ago. Tongue strap/cheekpieces back on and in the picture.
17
jockey silks 17. TIGER CRUSADE (FR)
J: Jamie Spencer
T: David Simcock
5
9-3
Dual 6f/7f scorer in 2021 who made an encouraging return when sixth of 10 to Dubai Station in handicap at Chelmsford City (6f) 21 days ago. In the mix if, as expected, building on that effort.
18
jockey silks 18. BIELSA (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Kevin Ryan
7
9-3
Smart sprinter who landed Ayr Gold Cup in September. Posted an encouraging seventh of 22 in 6f York handicap last month, so no surprise to see him take another step forward here.
19
jockey silks 19. VENTURA TORMENTA (IRE)
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-3
Dual 6f winner in 2020. Back from 21 months for his handicap debut though and this is no easy ask on his comeback run.
20
jockey silks 20. BLACKROD
J: Connor Beasley
T: Michael Dods
4
9-3
Progressive handicapper who returned with taking win in 19-runner event at Newmarket (6f) 49 days ago. Has more to offer, and he's very much one to consider despite 5 lb rise.
21
jockey silks 21. DUBAI STATION
J: Rossa Ryan
T: Robert Cowell
5
9-3
Improved on recent efforts to win 6f handicap at Chelmsford City 21 days ago by ½ length from Popmaster. Still unexposed over this trip, so he's highly respected under a 5 lb penalty.
22
jockey silks 22. FIRST FOLIO
J: Daniel Muscutt
T: James Ferguson
4
9-2
French import who did well for this yard last season, scoring twice over 6f at York. Posted another good effort when second in listed race at Windsor (6f) 33 days ago, so he's not ruled out.
23
jockey silks 23. FIVETHOUSANDTOONE (IRE)
J: William Carver
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-1
Winless since 2020, and off the track since coming in last of 5 in 6f Kempton conditions event in January. He needs to hit the ground running on his return.
24
jockey silks 24. POPMASTER (IRE)
J: Tom Marquand
T: Ed Walker
4
9-1
C&D winner who got back on track when second of 10 to Dubai Station in handicap at Chelmsford City (6f) 21 days ago. Possibilities.
25
jockey silks 25. FRESH
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: James Fanshawe
5
9-1
C&D winner who comes here on the back of good fourth of 27 in Victoria Cup here last month. Also runner-up in this contest 12 months ago, so he merits serious consideration.
26
jockey silks 26. APOLLO ONE
J: Benoit de la Sayette
T: P. Charalambous & J. Clutterbuck
4
9-1
Got back on track when third of 10 to Dubai Station in handicap at Chelmsford City (6f) 21 days ago. More is needed in this deeper contest, however.
27
jockey silks 27. SILVER SAMURAI
J: Ben Curtis
T: Marco Botti
5
9-0
Vastly improved of late since dropped back to 6f, impressively landing handicaps at Newbury and Haydock when displaying a good turn of foot to lead close home on each occasion. He's capable of a fair bit better still, and rates a big player under a 5 lb penalty.
28
jockey silks 28. CHAIRMANOFTHEBOARD (IRE)
J: Rob Hornby
T: Mick Channon
6
8-12
Bounced back to his best when third of 19 to Blackrod in handicap at Newmarket (6f) 49 days ago, running on. Not discounted.

The Wokingham, which is named after the market town near Ascot, was established in 1813 – for many years it was divided into different classes before becoming a single racing in 1874.

The leading jockeys, horses and trainers are all tied by many greats.

Many jockeys have won the race three times, with the most recent to do the treble being Johnny Murtagh who did it on Nice One Clare (2001), Laddies Poker Two (2010) and Deacon Blues (2011).

Four different horses have managed to win the race twice, but none have managed it since the turn of the century. The most recent horse to do the double was Selhurstpark Flyer (1997 and 1998).

Four trainers have won the race a total of three times, but again no one has achieved it since the turn of the century. The last to do it was over 30 years ago, when Paul Cole got his third winner with Bel Byou (1987). His earlier wins came courtesy of Calibina (1977) and Queen’s Pride (1980).
