Royal Ascot 2020 - Saturday 20th June
Full result

Frankie Dettori stole the spotlight on the final day with a treble of Group winners. Alpine Star landed the fillies Coronation Stakes before the impressive Palace Pier won the St James's Palace Stakes for the Italian. But it was the Queen Mary Stakes that topped off the day as he won aboard Campanelle, trained by the American, Wesley Ward, who had hit the crossbar twice on Friday and seemed destined to continue his fine record at Royal Ascot.

Eye Catching Performances from Royal Ascot 2020

Qaader

2020 result: Second, Coventry Stakes, Saturday

2020’s running of the Coventry Stakes, the premier juvenile contest over the five days, looked red-hot on paper and although there was a monster upset in 150-1 winner Nando Parrado, I wouldn’t say the form was weak at all.

Qaader travelled like a good thing throughout the 6f contest and encountered traffic issues just as the leaders started to quicken, which wasn’t ideal.

He weaved his way through and showed good acceleration to pull alongside the eventual winner, only to flatten out in the final 100 yards. With that experience under his belt, he could prove to be the star juvenile sprinter in the 2021 Ascot results.. 

Tom Collins

Seattle Rock

2020 result: Third, Chesham Stakes, Thursday

An unfancied 80-1 shot, Seattle Rock finished a tremendous third and could have been even closer but for hanging late on.

Although the filly finished last of three on her debut at Chelmsford, Sylvester Kirk was happy to send her to Ascot and she did not disappoint, travelling well behind the leaders.

Her inexperience was evident when she drifted from the centre over to the far rail inside the final furlong, but she managed to keep third and may have been challenging for second if staying straight.

David Baxter

Molatham

2020 result: Winner, Jersey Stakes, Thursday

Molatham’s two-year-old form with Wichita was eye-catching even before the Jersey Stakes and he now looks a potential Group 1 horse.

He had to work hard for this Group 3 success, but I loved his attitude when Jim Crowley asked him to get serious and there is every reason to believe he will be a better performer on fast ground.

There were quotes for the Sussex Stakes immediately afterwards and that’s definitely the sort of direction he’s heading in. He’s a thoroughly likeable colt with a very bright future. A fixture in this year’s racing results at Ascot? We’ll see.

Richard Birch

Bharani Star

2020 result: Fourth, Ribblesdale Stakes, Tuesday

Bharani Star ran a blinder at huge odds of 100-1, fully justifying Classic-winning trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam’s decision to pitch her in at the deep end at such an early stage in what ought to work out as one of the stronger Ribblesdale Stakes in recent years.

The filly had dead-heated in a Class 5 handicap at Haydock over a mile and a quarter just eight days earlier, so this was a giant leap, and there was certainly no fluke. It was hard not to be impressed by the way she made up so much ground in a race that suited those who raced handily.

One suspects she will continue to be underestimated in the market and there are a plethora of options for her going forward.

Dave Orton

Royal Crusade

2020 result: Sixth, Commonwealth Cup, Friday

Royal Crusade hadn’t been seen since finishing third in a Saint-Cloud Group 3 in October and there were plenty of positives to take from his reappearance effort.

He dwelt out of the stalls but recovered well and, perhaps most importantly, made a big move alongside the runner-up Kimari when the race evolved. That effort soon told and he emptied as if he needed the run.

He will probably be better on quicker ground and should be able to pick up a Group race in the near future at the very least. Very likely to finish high in 2021’s Ascot results.

Maddy Playle

Dandalla

2020 result: Winner, Albany Stakes, Friday

Dandalla was a sensational winner of the Albany.

She was thoroughly professional during the race and travelled easily under Ben Curtis before blitzing the field with an incredible turn of foot.

The way she stormed clear once hitting the front suggested we are dealing with a high-class filly and she should be heading for Group 1 targets now, with the Prix Morny looking a realistic aim. It is also interesting that Karl Burke has compared her to former stable star Laurens.

Dandalla is bred to appreciate a bit further in time, so could well improve in this year’s Ascot race results.

Dave Revers

Mohaather

2020 result: Seventh, Queen Anne Stakes, Tuesday

The Queen Anne was a steadily run race and those at the front were at a clear advantage. Held up right out the back, Mohaather never saw any daylight and basically finished on the bridle.

It’s always easy to overestimate how close unlucky-in-running horses would have gone and the front two were well clear at the line, but Mohaather would have been at least a clear third and he looks a horse to strongly consider in all the big mile races as the season progresses.

The caveats are that he has never gone around a bend in his life and so far he has shown a preference for soft ground, but the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on Champions Day back at Ascot looks tailor-made for him – provided he gets the rub of the green that he certainly didn’t get on Tuesday.

Tom Segal

Selino

2020 result: Second, Copper Horse Handicap, Wednesday

In a race blown apart by long-absent favourite Fujaira Prince, Selino shaped with immense promise under Oisin Murphy on his first run of the season.

The winner was given a perfectly judged ride by Andrea Atzeni, with the pair always prominent and in the ideal position to kick for home, while Selino endured a relatively tough trip and did not get the gaps when he needed them, especially up the home straight.

Fujaira Prince was never for catching, but Selino – a stayer who was bought by Qatar Racing in advance of the royal meeting – was never stronger than at the line. He has a most progressive profile: his RPRs on his last four starts read 84, 87, 103 and 105. 

Selino is trained by James Fanshawe, who will give the five-year-old time to develop, and he could become a leading candidate in the future, and may well feature high in this year’s Royal Ascot results.

Famous Royal Ascot results: The Queen’s top 5 winners

5. Pall Mall (Norfolk Stakes) - 1957

Pall Mall’s victory in the 1957 New Stakes, now known as the Norfolk Stakes, was a landmark event in that it marked the beginning of a period of great success for Her Majesty. The pacey youngster soared clear of the chasing pack, eventually claiming a sensational victory by some margin. Victory in the July Stakes, the Gimcrack Stakes and the Champagne Stakes followed that year - all very impressive for a horse of only two years of age.

4. Phantom Gold (Ribblesdale Stakes) - 1995

The racing world always knew that Phantom Gold had great potential, but her career prospects were hampered by her notoriously troublesome behaviour, with trainer Lord Huntingdon remarking that she had ‘a mind of her own’. But something just clicked when the Queen’s horse was with Alison Ashley, who looked after her and rode her out. A poor performance in the Oaks Trial at Newbury in May meant that expectations were low heading into Ascot, but ridden by a young Frankie Dettori, Phantom Gold produced an outstanding performance to win the Ribblesdale Stakes by a length and a half. The racing world was shocked, and The Queen was delighted.

3. Estimate (Gold Cup) - 2013

While ‘the Cheltenham roar’ is known across the globe, there have been fewer more deafening cheers in horse racing as Estimate strained every sinew to snatch the Gold Cup in Ascot’s 2013 festival. The white-knuckle win was the first ever Gold Cup success for a reigning monarch, and jockey Ryan Moore puts the day down as one of his best in the sport. Ultimately, the Gold Cup win was just one of three Ascot races that this famous horse ended up winning. Mightily impressive stuff. 

2. Choir Boy (Royal Hunt Cup) - 1953

There’s always something special about the first time winning anything, and the Queen’s maiden Ascot win came thanks to Choir Boy in 1953. Ridden by Doug Smith, the horse won the Royal Hunt Cup by a length in damp conditions. This victory kicked off an impressive spell of success for the newly-crowned monarch, with seven winners coming in the first two years of her reign.

1. Free Agent (Chesham Stakes) - 2008

With the UK horse racing scene witnessing the arrival of a wave of wealthy international owners, Her Majesty’s horses had endured nine years of disappointment heading into the 2008 edition of Ascot. Naturally, there was a tinge of desperation in the air - would the Queen ever see another of her horses win during the Royal festival? But then along came Free Agent, a promising juvenile trained by the famous Richard Hannon Snr. His victory in the Chesham Stakes was only his second career race, but he showed no signs of inexperience as he romped home. After almost a decade of disappointment, this was a momentous event, and the Queen was even said to have cried ‘I’ve done it!’ as her winning horse passed the post.
