History of the Wokingham Stakes race at Royal Ascot
First run in 1813. The race is named after Wokingham, a market town to the west of Ascot.

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.

Royal Ascot Wokingham Stakes Trends and Statistics

Here are the Wokingham Stakes 12 year Trends and Statistics:

 

  • Age – Ten of the last twelve winners have been aged four (4) or five (6).
  • Sex – Eight of the last twelve winners have been geldings, two horses and two mares. This is a particularly bad race for colts with no winners and only five making the frame from 40 runners over the twelve years.
  • Country – Four of the last twelve winners were bred in Great Britain, four in Ireland, three in the USA and one in Italy. 
  • Colour – Six of the last twelve winners were chestnut (ch), three were bay (b), one bay/brown (b/br), one grey (gr) and one grey/roan (gr/ro). Mini angle: This race bucks the trend of bay dominance and those six chestnut wins come from just 62 runners and show a level stakes profit of £44.5 at SP to level £1 stakes a ROI of 171.77%.
  • Starting Price (SP) – Nine of the last twelve winners returned a SP between 15/2 and 33/1.
  • Starting Price Rank – Just two favourites have won this race in the last twelve years. Seven winners have come from the first three in the betting.

  • Weight – Nine of the last twelve winners have carried 9st 3lb or less.
  • Draw – The draw is a difficult one to work out, Five of the last twelve winners have been drawn between stalls 1 and 8. four between 13 and 19 and three between 25 and 27. 
  • Last run form – Two of the last twelve winners won last time out and ten finished in the first four. Eight of the last twelve winners either won or finished within a length and a quarter of the winner last time.
  • Days Since Last Run – Ten of the last twelve winners last ran between 14 and 42 days ago.
  • Official Rating – All of the last twelve winners have had an official rating between 95 and 107.

    What's Our Wokingham Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?

    W been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's our thoughts ahead of the race:

    The Wokingham is always one of the most entertaining races on the final day and last year’s renewal was won by Kevin Ryan’s Hey Jonesy.

    Andrew Balding’s Chil Chil is understandably favourite for this year’s event and will be hoping to build on a very effective display at Newmarket back at the beginning of May. If the ground is firm, this horse will relish the 6f.

    Rohaan has shown its versatility ground wise and can be effective on both good and heavy.

    James Fanshawe’s Fresh could be a lively outsider in this year’s event having impressed at Ascot over a similar distance This gelding beat 17 rivals including Pendleton, who it comes up against in this contest once again.

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

    On the day:

    ROHAAN 5.00 – Ascot (5/1) – Has gone from strength to strength this year, surprising everyone by winning a group 3 at Ascot at 22/1 and then a group 2 on heavy ground at Haydock at 33/1 last time. There was no fluke about those wins as the times backed them up and he beat some very useful performers. He drops back into handicap company tomorrow without a penalty for either of his group wins and although up 12lb since his last run in a handicap at Newmarket, he’s still racing with the same amount of weight.

    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
