Royal Ascot Day 5, 2020

Royal Ascot Day 5 is the final day of the Royal Ascot Meeting each year on the Saturday (20th June 2020). With just two Group races, some may say that it’s not the best quality of the five days of Royal Ascot, with the Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes the day’s flagship event.

Royal Ascot Saturday gets going with the Listed Chesham Stakes. This is another 2 year-old contest that is run over 7f and in recent years has seen 16 of the last 17 winners finish in the top three last time out.

The Group Two Jersey Stakes is the second Royal Ascot race on the final day of the meeting and another race over 7f. With 8 wins between them, then trainers Aidan O’Brien and Sir Michael Stoute are always both looking for in the Jersey Stakes.
Run over 1m4f, the Listed Hardwicke Stakes is the third race at Royal Ascot on day five. We’ve seen the last two favourites land the prize, while in recent years 11 of the last 17 market leaders in the race have been placed. With 13 wins between them in the last 17 then trained, Sir Michael Stoute, Mark Johnston and Aidan O’Brien should be respected in this race.

The Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes is the Royal Ascot day five feature race. Run over 6f it’s another of the top sprinting races on the global horse racing calendar and you often see horses that ran in the King’s Stand Stakes on the Tuesday running here too. Last year the Godolphin-owned Blue Point landed both the King’s Stand and Diamond Jubilee Stakes at the same meeting.

The Diamond Jubilee has seen 14 of the last 17 winners aged 5 or younger, while we’ve not had a winner from stall one in the last 14 runnings.

We end Royal Ascot day five with the competitive Wokingham Stakes Handicap. This is a well-contested 6f handicap that often attracts 25+ runners each year. In 2019, the well-backed Cape Byron won the race for the Roger Varian yard and considering the competitive nature of the race, we’ve actually had 5 winning market leaders in the last 20 runnings.

The curtain always comes down on Royal Ascot Day 5 with the Queen Alexandra Stakes – the longest race at Royal Ascot. Run over 2m5f, it’s another chance for the jumping yards to target a race at the meeting and in the last 17 years we’ve seen 5 National Hunt stables land the prize, including the powerful Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott teams, who are more-famed for having runners at the Cheltenham Festival in March and Grand National in April.
