The race was first run in 2002 when Royal Ascot was extended to five days to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. It is named after the village of Wolferton near Sandringham House.

Initially, a handicap until 2018 when the conditions were altered to comply with a recommendation that no handicap should carry Listed status. Group 1 and 2 winners since the previous August are prohibited from entering.

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

No stats to go off as conditions changed in 2018 when this race stopped being a handicap. So we are basically peeing in the wind on this one.

Sixteen winners are due to go to post but I think it can be narrowed down to three, the trio are FOX TAI, Chester Vase winner SIR DRAGONET and REGAL REALITY trained by Michael Stoute.

Keith's final choice

13:50 REGAL REALITY 9/1 each way – A high-quality renewal of the Wolferton. Winter Derby winner DUBAI WARRIOR is interesting despite top weight if he can transfer his All-Weather form to turf. Chester Vase winner SIR DRAGONET is likely to find the trip too sharp. FOX TAL looks to be a false favourite and may be found wanting at this level despite being Group 1 placed in France at two. REGAL REALITY, however, has performed well at the highest level over the last two years picking up a couple of Group 3s along the way. This is a drop in class.

How it fared

REGAL REALITY 3RD – Heavy rain meant the going changed and as a consequence, the race cut up DUBAI warrior was one of three that never lined up. Held up and swung wide along with SIR DRAGONET (2nd) when entering the straight, in pursuit of better going, winner MOUNTAIN ANGEL got first run and stuck to the rail.

What our members tipped in the Wolferton Stakes

Each day we ask our members to select their Pick 6, their NAP for each race of the day.  We then collate all the picks, and present the top selections to our VIP members.  Here's they picked for the Wolferton Stakes:

The AP O’Brien/Ryan Moore combo on Sir Dragonet comes out on top here with 26.9% of the selections.
Fox Tal worth a mention with a smidge over 21%, if only to get my for fox sake joke in! Dubai Warrior trailing back in third with 16.7%

The finale of Day One and everything looks to be pointing towards Elarqam from the Pick 6 selections.  Magic Wand a close second here with Addeybb picking up just over 13% of the selections.

Royal Ascot Wolferton Stakes Results 2019
1 Addeybb 5/1
2 Magic Wand 9/2f
3 Elarqam 5/1
4 Latrobe
16 ran Distances: 2 ½l, nse, sh

Our Verdict:
Our members and our tipster Keith both agreed on Elarqam to win the Wolferton, however it wasn’t to be. Despite Elarqam and Magic Wand being in the front group throughout the race, Addeybb came through in the run up to home to win comfortably with Magic Wand and Elarqam separated by a nose for second and third respectively.
