Wolferton Stakes 2022 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 14 Jun WOLFERTON STAKES

Distance: 9f 212y Age: 4yo + Prize: £65,120 Going: Good to Firm

Analyst's Verdict

This looks very open. FOXES TALES was able to negotiate a wide stall when landing a C&D handicap at this meeting in 2021 so he's chanced despite being drawn in 16. He seemingly didn't quite stay 1½m at Newbury last time and had finished in front of last year's winner Juan Elcano, who should go well again, when a creditable second on his reappearance at Sandown. Harrovian and the reappearing Tasman Bay are others to consider.

1
jockey silks 1. CADILLAC (IRE)
J: Shane Foley
T: Kevin Philippart de Foy
4
9-8
Smart colt. Blinkered first time, career best when winning 6-runner listed race at Leopardstown (9f, good) 12 days ago by 3¾ lengths from Georgeville. Penalty demands a bit more but he arrives at the top of his game.
2
jockey silks 2. DUBAI FUTURE
J: Daniel Tudhope
T: Saeed bin Suroor
6
9-8
Smart operator who landed a listed event at Meydan in January. Below par when remote fourth of 5 in Brigadier Gerard at Sandown on British return but his regular cheekpieces return now. Probably vulnerable.
3
jockey silks 3. MAJESTIC DAWN (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Paul & Oliver Cole
6
9-8
2020 Cambridgeshire winner who slipped clear early on when landing a 1m2f Goodwood listed 24 days ago by 3¾ lengths from reopposing West End Charmer. It'll be harder to pull off similar tactics here.
4
jockey silks 4. NEW MANDATE (IRE)
J: Rob Hornby
T: Ralph Beckett
4
9-8
Smart performer at 2 yrs. Lightly raced since but 1m course listed win on reappearance in April shows he retains his ability. Down the field in Lockinge at Newbury since, though. Up in trip.
5
jockey silks 5. STAR SAFARI
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
6
9-8
Smart gelding. Winner of listed at Meydan in January. Creditable short-head second of 12 to Royal Fleet in Group 3 there in February. Off since. Also placed at pattern level in Britain last year but his wide draw could make life awkward.
6
jockey silks 6. CERTAIN LAD
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Mick Channon
6
9-5
Group 3 winner in 2020. Off 18 months, showed that he retains plenty of ability when 3 lengths second of 4 to Solid Stone in Huxley at Chester (10.3f, good) 39 days ago. Ought to be competitive.
7
jockey silks 7. FOXES TALES (IRE)
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
4
9-5
Won C&D handicap at last year's Royal meeting and also bagged a Haydock Group 3 in August. Creditable second to Mostahdaf (Juan Elcano third) in Gordon Richards at Sandown on reappearance. Seemingly failed to stay 1½m when fourth at Newbury since. Wide draw to overcome but leading form claims.
8
jockey silks 8. HARROVIAN
J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
6
9-5
Smart performer who was a good 1¾ lengths fourth of 14 to Authority in Group 3 in Saudi Arabia in February. Not up to Dubai Turf since but he's a contender on the Saudi form. Handily drawn in 4.
9
jockey silks 9. JUAN ELCANO
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Kevin Ryan
5
9-5
Won this race on his second start of last season. Finished 1½ lengths behind Foxes Tales when last of 3 on his Sandown reappearance but every chance he's been primed for this again. On the shortlist.
10
jockey silks 10. MOVIN TIME
J: Jack Mitchell
T: Roger Varian
4
9-5
Useful performer. 5/1, bit below form 8 lengths fourth of 9 to Majestic Dawn in listed race at Goodwood 24 days ago. First-time cheekpieces will need to spark improvement.
11
jockey silks 11. PALAVECINO (FR)
J: Jamie Spencer
T: Brian Meehan
6
9-5
Smart effort to win Lingfield handicap in January and predictably wasn't up to the Coronation Cup on sole start since. This a bit more realistic but he'll be vulnerable again. Well beaten in this last year.
12
jockey silks 12. PEROTTO
J: Dougie Costello
T: Marcus Tregoning
4
9-5
Landed the Britannia at last year's Royal meeting and generally in good form later in 2021, seeming to prove his stamina for this trip when fourth in Goodwood listed in September. Been off for 8 months.
13
jockey silks 13. REGAL REALITY
J: Ryan Moore
T: Sir Michael Stoute
7
9-5
Smart gelding. Best effort of 2021 when nose second of 8 to Dubai Warrior in listed race at Lingfield (AW) in December. Third in this race on his 2020 reappearance. Yet another who could have a say.
14
jockey silks 14. TASMAN BAY (FR)
J: James McDonald
T: Sir Mark Todd
4
9-5
Progressed well at 3, including second in King Edward at this meeting and third in Deauville Group 3 in August. Gelded ahead of reappearance. Likely to play a prominent role if he's primed for this first start since August.
15
jockey silks 15. WEST END CHARMER (IRE)
J: Joe Fanning
T: Charlie & Mark Johnston
6
9-5
Smart performer but doesn't see the track too often. Creditable 3¾ lengths second of 9 to reopposing Majestic Dawn in Goodwood listed on reappearance 24 days ago. Placed in a handicap at this meeting in 2020.
16
jockey silks 16. ARISTIA (IRE)
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
4
9-0
York listed winner last season. Raised her game a little again when ½-length second of 6 to Lilac Road in Middleton Stakes back there on reappearance 33 days ago, having run of race from front. Another who can't be discounted.

Betting Forecast : 17/2 8.5 CADILLAC, 17/2 8.5 FOXES TALES, 9/1 9 JUAN ELCANO, 9/1 9 PEROTTO, 10/1 10 MAJESTIC DAWN, 12/1 12 REGAL REALITY, 12/1 12 STAR SAFARI, 18/1 18 WEST END CHARMER, 18/1 18 HARROVIAN, 18/1 18 TASMAN BAY, 22/1 22 CERTAIN LAD, 22/1 22 DUBAI FUTURE, 25/1 25 MOVIN TIME, 28/1 28 NEW MANDATE, 28/1 28 ARISTIA, 50/1 50 PALAVECINO

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.
