No jockey has dominated this race during its history and over the years, seven have recorded three wins. The most recent being Johnny Murtagh who last won this race in 2011.

As with the jockeys, no trainer has made the race his own and four of them share top honours on four wins. Paul Cole being the last of the four when he clocked up his third win back in 1987.

    What's Keith's Wokingham 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 Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

    On paper, this is a very wide open Wokingham. The bookies favourite is MUBAKKA but as recent winners have ranged from 8/1 to 33/1 not too many can be ruled out and there will be a lot of head-scratching going on.

    Keith's final choice

    16:10 STONE OF DESTINY 25/1 each way – Well handicapped on best form and made an encouraging return on the all-weather two weeks ago. Can run a big race.

    How it fared

    STONE OF DESTINY 6th – Tracked leaders far side every chance 1 furlong out, ran on same pace would have been closer from a higher draw.

    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 Wokingham Stakes:

    There were no ante post tips for the Wokingham.

    Keith selected FOXTROT LADY as an each way choice at 22/1
