The big horse race of the day is the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot

Below are some helpful facts and figures from Dave Renham at

4.20 Ascot Wokingham Stakes (6f – handicap) 3yo+

N.B there was a dead heat in 2003 so we have 21 winners to consider.


Price: 14 of the last 21 winners were priced between 10/1 and 20/1.
Position LTO: 16 of the last 21 winners finished in the first 4 LTO.
Distance LTO: Horses dropping down a furlong from running over 7f LTO have a good record with 8 wins from 85 qualifiers for a profit of 76 pts (ROI +89.4%).
Career wins:18 of the last 21 winners had won at least three times in their careers.


Second favourites (inc. joints): 0 from 30.
Position LTO: Horses that finished 5th or worse LTO have provided 5 winners from 300 runners for a loss of 190 pts (ROI -63.3%).
Distance LTO: Horses stepping up from 5f LTO have a very poor record with just 1 win from 130 runners.
Last 6 runs: Horses that have failed to finish 1st or 2nd in at least one of their last six runs have provided 0 winners from 112.


Favourites: 2 wins from 20 for a loss of 5 pts (ROI -25%).
Age: 3yos have won 0 races from 34 runners (SR 0%); 4yos have won 9 from 205 runners (SR 4.4%); 5yos have won 7 from 140 runners (SR 5%); 6yos have won 4 from 99 runners (SR 4%); 7yos+ have won 1 from 99 (SR 1%).
Trends Summary: One of the top handicap sprints of the year and with an average of around 27 runners it is not easy! Horses priced between 10/1 and 20/1 seem to offer the best value, assuming they have finished in the first four LTO. It is best to ignore horses that raced over 5f LTO, have not finished in the first two on at least one of their last six starts, and horses aged 7 or older. Using those five stats mentioned above would have found the winner in 60% of the races from only 18% of all runners. One final positive trend worth noting is the good record of horses dropping down from 7f LTO.
