History of the Queen Anne Stakes race at Royal Ascot
Established in 1840’s as The Trial Stakes, this race has a long pedigree of fine racing.  The Trial Stakes was renamed in 1930 to the Queen Anne Stakes in honour of the founder of Ascot Racecourse – Queen Anne.  In 1970, it was classed as a Grade 3 race, rising to Grade 2 in 1984, and in 2003 becoming a Grade 1 horse race. This flat race is 1 mile in length and is open to horses four years and older.

There are two outstanding jockeys for this race, Sir Gordon Richards who won the race a total of 6 times between 1925 and 1952.  Frankie Dettori matched this 6 win run when he finished on board Ramonti in the 2007 race.

Most notable race performance by a horse in the Queen Anne Stakes must go to Frankel when he earned flat racing’s highest rating (147) for his 11 length romp home in 2012.  You can watch this brilliant performance in the video:

What's Keith's Queen Anne Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers.  He's been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

The Queen Anne Stakes is a bit of an enigma this year with none of the leading contenders ticking every box. Last years St James' Palace winner CIRCUS MAXIMUS is a warm favourite at around 5/2 with Dahlia winner TEREBELLUM and FOX CHAIRMAN next in the market at 7/1 and 8/1 respectively.

Keith's final choice

13:50 TEREBELLUM 7/2 – While dual Group 1 winner CIRCUS MAXIMUS merits respect the improver is TEREBELLUM who won the Group 3 Dalhia Stakes at Newmarket 10 days ago shaping up like she would be even better dropped back in trip.

How it fared

TEREBELLUM (5/1) was second just losing out in a battle with CIRCUS MAXIMUS which went right to the line.

To be certain of getting Keith's final thoughts on every Royal Ascot race, make sure you have joined the FRT VIP Club.

This is what Keith said about the 2019 Queen Anne Stakes:

Leading Contenders

MUSTASHRY 5/1 – Course and distance winner. Last month he added the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes at Newbury to his already impressive CV, winning with some authority despite drifting left.

LAURENS 8/1 – Absolute superstar last season. Second in the 1000 Guinea’s then going on to win five Group 1 races. Second in the Lockinge behind MUSTASHRY on only start this season.

LE BRIVIDO 8/1 – Course winner. Fifth in the Lockinge last time. Has never won at further than seven furlongs so stamina is a worry.

AUXERRE 12/1 – Won the Lincoln at Doncaster in March but this is a big step up from handicap company.


MUSHASHRY and LAURENS look to be the pair to concentrate on and even though the latter must make up 2½ lengths on their last meeting she is sure to strip fitter in this and can take advantage of her 3lb fillies’ allowance. 

My selection LAURENS 8/1 each way.

Our Verdict:

The favourites never had a look in, finishing mid division, it was all to play for with the outsiders though, with Lord Glitters raising his head just at the right time when they crossed the line together with Beat the Bank, who he stole the race from by a neck.

Both Keith, our members and the betting public all fell for the favourites Laurens and Mustashry who finished 6th and 7th respectively.

Watch the thrilling finish of the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot 2019, and watch Lord Glitters win the race by a neck from Beat the Bank:
