2024 Vintage Stakes Preview

Scheduled to take place on the opening day of Glorious Goodwood in late July or early August, the Vintage Stakes is a Group 2 which is open to two-year-old runners and run over seven furlongs.

These two-year-old runners are assigned a weight of 9-1, any fillies get a 3lb allowance and any which have already won either a Group 1 or Group 2 have to carry a 3lb penalty.

How competitive is the Vintage Stakes market? When looking at the over-rounds for the last 20 renewals, the most competitive market was in 2021 when the race had an over-round of 109%. The race in 2018 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 120%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Vintage Stakes, the over-round has been 115%, which means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £115 which is bet.

Vintage Stakes Trends:

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 Vintage Stakes next time out then you would have backed a total of 6 winners. Backing all 20 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of +3.33. Whilst we wait for the 2024 Vintage Stakes remember you can get daily racing predictions from the expert tipsters on the racing predictions page.

The runner that holds the record over the past 20 renewals for the slowest time in the race was set in the 2021 renewal when Angel Bleu from Ralph Beckett under the guidance of Frankie Dettori, won in a time of 1:32.85, whilst at the other end of the spectrum, War Decree, trained by A P O'Brien and ridden by Ryan Moore set the quickest time of 1:25.75 in the 2016 renewal.

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

  1. War Decree (1:25.75) in 2016
