2025 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.

From the past 20 if you had followed the winner of the Sandringham Stakes next time out then you would have backed a total of 4 winners.

Remember to use the racing predictions along with the information on this page to find a bet on the 2025 Sandringham Stakes.
