1
Jocket Silks 1. DUBAI WARRIOR
J: Robert Havlin
T: John Gosden
4
9-8
Superb AW record, improving again when landing Group 3 Winter Derby at Lingfield in ready fashion. Must concede weight all round switched to turf but he's far from discounted.

2
Jocket Silks 2. CROSSED BATON
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John Gosden
5
9-6
Smart performer at 3 and bounced back to best in first-time cheekpieces when winning 6-runner listed contest at Lingfield in November. More needed in this deeper race.

3
Jocket Silks 3. MOUNTAIN HUNTER (USA)
J: Pat Cosgrave
T: Saeed bin Suroor
6
9-6
Doesn't always find a great deal when the chips are down but gained third win of 2019 in listed race at Newmarket in September. Matched that form when third in a Group 3 at Meydan in March.

4
Jocket Silks 4. COCKALORUM (IRE)
J: Callum Rodriguez
T: Roger Fell
5
9-3
Ran right up to form when runner-up in handicap company on reappearance 16 days ago but his level of form is well short of what is required here.

5
Jocket Silks 5. DREAM CASTLE
J: William Buick
T: Saeed bin Suroor
6
9-3
Smart gelding who thrived at Meydan in early 2019, completing the hat-trick in Group 1 event. Met trouble when fourth in this year's renewal but stamina for this far isn't copper-bottomed.

6
Jocket Silks 6. EXTRA ELUSIVE
J: Jason Watson
T: Roger Charlton
5
9-3
Progressive at 3 yrs and further improvement last year despite failing to add to his tally. Gelded and too free when prominent in the betting in the Winter Derby but this track may be more suitable.

7
Jocket Silks 7. FOREST RANGER (IRE)
J: Tony Hamilton
T: Richard Fahey
6
9-3
Usually comes to hand early and won the Group 2 Huxley at Chester for the second season running last year. Disappointing from lofty BHA mark final start but could be interesting at a price.

8
Jocket Silks 8. FOX TAL
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-3
Smart effort when third in French Group 1 final 2yo start and plenty to draw from both starts last year, winning a minor race at Doncaster before excelling himself in the Champion Stakes here.

9
Jocket Silks 9. KING OTTOKAR (FR)
J: Kieran Shoemark
T: Charlie Fellowes
4
9-3
Progressed well last year, winning a strong Newbury event over this trip on return and running a mighty race behind Sangarius in the Hampton Court. Tough ask when last of 5 on recent reappearance.

10
Jocket Silks 10. MOUNTAIN ANGEL (IRE)
J: James Doyle
T: Roger Varian
6
9-3
Back-to-back handicap winner at Epsom last spring and excelled himself when twice finding one too good in Group 2 and 3 company abroad. Bombed out in Bahrain International Trophy at Sakhir final run.

11
Jocket Silks 11. PRINCE EIJI
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Roger Varian
4
9-3
Has never stood much racing and has just a maiden win to his name (gained at this venue on debut in September 2018). Has displayed useful form along the way but a good test at this trip is a worry.

12
Jocket Silks 12. REGAL REALITY
J: Jim Crowley
T: Sir Michael Stoute
5
9-3
Won Brigadier Gerard at Sandown prior to finishing an excellent third to Enable in the Eclipse last year. Change of tactics didn't work in the Champion Stakes but he's a key form player.

13
Jocket Silks 13. SIR DRAGONET (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
4
9-3
Very smart performer who landed first 2 starts prior to a cracking fifth in last year's Derby. Stamina stretched when fourth in St Leger and should have more to offer as a 4-y-o.

14
Jocket Silks 14. WALKINTHESAND (IRE)
J: Pat Dobbs
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-3
Successful handicap debut in a good race over this trip at Newmarket last summer and ran well at Doncaster when last seen. Big chunk of improvement needed to land a blow in this, though.

15
Jocket Silks 15. ALOE VERA
J: Harry Bentley
T: Ralph Beckett
4
8-12
Filly with a superb pedigree and she supplemented her debut win in listed company at Goodwood, again strong at the finish. That was in May 2019 and she's been off since, but she's fascinating.

16
Jocket Silks 16. BUBBLE AND SQUEAK
J: Ben Curtis
T: Sylvester Kirk
5
8-12
Useful mare who was in good form on the AW to end 2019. Put in her place in Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket on reappearance and same story envisaged here.

Analyst's Verdict

FOX TAL was seen to good effect in the Champion Stakes here in October, but a fourth-placed finish in a Group 1 was another forward step and this lightly-raced 4-y-o holds leading claims. Regal Reality and Sir Dragonet are the other key form players, while Aloe Vera is the unknown quantity.

It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile 1 furlong and 212 yards (2,004 metres), and is scheduled to take place each year in June on the first day of the Royal Ascot meeting (Tuesday).

The race was first staged in 2002 when Royal Ascot was extended to five days to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. It was named after the village of Wolferton, which is near Sandringham House, and was initially named the Wolferton Rated Stakes.

In 2018 the race was moved to the opening day of Royal Ascot (Tuesday) and the handicap element was removed to comply with a recommendation that no handicap should carry Listed status, meaning it became a conventional Listed Race. Group 1 and 2 winners since the previous August are not allowed to enter in the race.

John Gosden is the most successful trainer in the races history, with Beachfire (2011), Gatewood (2012), Mahsoob (2015), and Monarchs Glen (2018) all tasting victory. The first two were partnered by William Buick, making him the leading jockey in the race with two wins.
