2022 Ascot Stakes Preview
The Ascot Stakes is one of the longest flat horse races of the season at just shy of two miles four furlongs and about two furlongs less than the longest flat race staged, the Queen Alexandra Stakes which is the final race of Royal Ascot on the Saturday over just short of two miles six furlongs.
A valuable Royal Ascot handicap with a £65,000 purse and run over twenty furlongs unsurprisingly attracts the attention of national hunt trainers, the last ten renewals have been won by a 'recognised' jumps trainer.

Over the last 20 renewals, it was the W P Mullins trained Thomas Hobson ridden by Ryan Moore who has set the fastest winning time in the Ascot Stakes, the runner won the race in a time of 4:17.62 that was set when winning the race in 2017. At the other end of the scale, it was the combination of trainer Jarlath P Fahey and jockey Ronan Whelan with Jennies Jewel who set the slowest winning time, the race-winning time was 4:34.70 in the 2016 renewal.
These are the top three quickest run Ascot Stakes over the last 20 renewals:
- 2017 - Thomas Hobson (4:17.62)
- 2007 - Full House (4:18.29)
- 2014 - Domination (4:20.30)
How competitive is the Ascot Stakes market? When looking at the over-rounds for the last 20 renewals, the most competitive market was in 2008 when the race had an over-round of 125%. The race in 2002 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 137%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Ascot Stakes, the over-round has been 130% that means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £130 which is bet.
Looking at the future form, is the winner worth following next time out? From the past 20 if you had followed the winner of the Ascot Stakes next time out then you would have back a total of 3 winners. Backing all 19 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of -3.75.
