Wolferton Stakes 2021 Racecard

The Wolferton Stakes is a Listed Flat horse race in Great Britain, with horses aged four-year-old and up able to enter.

5:35 Tue 15 Jun WOLFERTON STAKES

Distance: 9f 212y Age: 4yo + Prize: £44,400 Going: Gd/Frm

Analyst's Verdict

FELIX has gone from strength to strength for Marco Botti and ran a screamer under Oisin Murphy in the Dubai Turf when last seen. Proven fresh, he's given the vote in a wide-open Wolferton that again looks a very good race for a listed contest. Impressive Epsom winner Blue Cap is next on the shortlist, ahead of Patrick Sarsfield and Solid Stone.

Back to form from out of the blue when easily winning the Brigadier Gerard at Sandown (10f, soft) 3 weeks ago, making effort wide and keeping on well. Career best needed under penalty now.

jockey silks 2. FOREST OF DEAN
J: Frankie Dettori

9-8
Has taken his form up another notch on AW this year, winning the Lingfield Winter Derby. Looked a bit awkward there last time but back from a break now and is just as good on turf, so don't dismiss.

Group 3 winner over 14f in Dubai earlier in the year but tailed off as if amiss over 2m there when last seen in March and has plenty on his plate on these terms. Headgear refitted.

J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute

Much improved when impressively winning extended 1m listed event at Windsor last month from Stormy Antarctic, keeping on well after racing in isolation. Good form and has a big shout back up in trip.

J: Non Runner

Chased home Solid Stone on the other side of the track at Windsor (good form) before resuming winning ways in 4-runner Goodwood listed race over this trip 3 weeks ago. Could figure. NON RUNNER.

J: William Buick
T: David Menuisier
5
9-3
Low-mileage 5-y-o who took apart a useful field in Epsom handicap over this trip in a first-time hood on Oaks Day, storming clear from Victory Chime. Should get a good pace here and can go well again.
7
jockey silks 7. DAWAAM (USA)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Owen Burrows

9-3
Enhanced his fine record on AW when making successful return from 8 months off/wind op in Chelmsford handicap over this trip 7 weeks ago. Twice held on turf previously and has cheekpieces on now.

J: Callum Shepherd

Big improver on the AW this winter, completing a hat-trick at around this trip before having excuses behind Forest of Dean in the Winter Derby. Disappointing on turf latest and been gelded. Unexposed.

J: Oisin Murphy
T: Marco Botti

9-3
Last 4 wins on AW (split Forest of Dean and Father of Jazz in Winter Derby) but just as good on turf, running a mighty race under this rider in the Dubai Turf when last seen. Well worth considering.

jockey silks 10. FOX TAL
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding

Capable of smart form but temperament holding him back, caught close home in Chester handicap on return having been gelded but then turning in a dislikeable performance at Sandown behind Euchen Glen.

J: Andrea Atzeni

9-3
Fifth in the 2000 Guineas on return in 2020 the highlight of his season, but he made a pleasing comeback again in Doncaster listed race in March having been gelded. Not sure this is his trip. Wind op.

J: Martin Dwyer
T: Brian Meehan

Progressed well in handicaps last season, winning 4 times at up to 12f. Good return in front of Forest of Dean at Lingfield but weakened at Chester 6 weeks ago and this looks too tough.
13
jockey silks 13. PATRICK SARSFIELD (FR)
J: Tom Marquand
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
5
9-3
Did well in 2020, winning 3 times at up to this trip and going close in the Prix Dollar. Excellent return at the Curragh when beaten just a head and that will have teed him up nicely for this.
14
jockey silks 14. VICTORY CHIME (IRE)
J: Rob Hornby
T: Ralph Beckett

9-3
Likeable type with a good record over this trip at Epsom, winning handicap in April before the impressive Blue Cap got his revenge earlier this month. This is much hotter in re-fitted visor.

Betting Forecast : 9/2 4.5 PATRICK SARSFIELD, 5/1 5 SOLID STONE, 15/2 7.5 FELIX, 8/1 8 FOREST OF DEAN, 8/1 8 BLUE CUP, 14/1 14 EUCHEN GLEN, 16/1 16 JUAN ELCANO, 20/1 20 FOX TAL, 20/1 20 FATHER OF JAZZ, 25/1 25 DAWAAM, 33/1 33 PALAVECINO, 50/1 50 VICTORY CHIME, 66/1 66 VOLCANIC SKY

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.
