2022 Britannia Stakes Preview

The Britannia Stakes Heritage Handicap is a class 2 event for 3-year-old colts and geldings over one mile on Ascot's straight course and this year is scheduled to be run on Thursday of the festival.

To see which runners the OLBG racing tipsters are tipping throughout the card that includes this race, head over to the Royal Ascot Betting Picks on the day of the race, do they agree with the runners on the trend shortlist or are they predicting other runners?

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 2002 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 158%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Britannia Stakes, the over-round has been 141% that means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £141 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 winners. Backing all 19 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of -10.50. Whilst we wait for the 2022 Britannia Stakes remember you can get daily racing predictions from the expert tipsters on the racing predictions page.
