2024 Sandringham Stakes Preview

The Sandringham Stakes is a Class 1 Listed Handicap for three-year-old fillies only, run over Ascot's straight mile. The longest-priced winners since 1997 have come in recent times with Charlie Fellowes and Hayley Turner teaming up with consecutive 33/1 winners, Thanks Be in 2019 and then Onassis in 2020.

Ascot's straight mile is a stiff test for any horse let alone three years old's and trying to make all or be 'in the van' the whole way is a stiff ask so taking into consideration Jamie Spencer's general style of riding a waiting race, it's no surprise he has a good record in the Sandringham Stakes over the straight mile.
