Over the last 20 renewals, it was Ribchester, trained by Richard Fahey and ridden by William Buick who set the fastest winning time in the Queen Anne Stakes, the runner won the race in a time of 1:36.60 when winning the race in 2017. At the other end of the scale, it was the combination of trainer Mark Casse and jockey Julien R Leparoux with Tepin who set the slowest winning time, the race-winning time was 1:43.98 in the 2016 renewal.

What the expert says...
When it comes to a good prep race then that would be the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, that race has provided twelve of the last eighteen winners and five of those have done the double, Canford Cliffs (2011), Frankel (2012), Ribchester (2017), Palace Pier (2021) & Baaeed (2022).
