Why not use the trends shortlist below to help you narrow down the field and then head over to the dedicated Royal Ascot Betting Picks page to see which of those runners are being supported by the OLBG expert racing tipsters to find yourself a bet.

The runner that holds the record over the past 20 renewals for the slowest time in the race was set in the 2011 renewal when Sagramor from Hughie Morrison who under the guidance of Nicky Mackay, won in a time of 1:44.55, whilst at the other end of the spectrum, Mostashaar, trained by Sir Michael Stoute and ridden by Richard Hills set the quickest time of 1:36.35 in the 2005 renewal.

These are the top three quickest-run Britannia Stakes over the last 20 renewals:

  • 2005 - Mostashaar (1:36.35)
  • 2013 - Beauty Flame (1:37.52)
  • 2010 - Ransom Note (1:37.82)

How competitive is the Britannia Stakes market? When looking at the over-rounds for the last 20 renewals, the most competitive market was in 2005 when the race had an over-round of 123%. The race in 2016 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 153%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Britannia Stakes, the over-round has been 140%, which means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £140 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 Britannia Stakes next time out then you would have back a total of 1 winner. Backing all 19 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of -10.50.
