Diamond Jubilee Stakes History

The race was initiated in 1868 as the All-Aged Stakes, but the Diamond Jubilee Stakes has been in existence since 1971.

Since then it has been upgraded from Group 3, Group 2 and now Group 1 status, which it will likely stay at given the prestige of the race.

It became a Group 1 in 2002 when named the Golden Jubilee to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and was changed to the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

In 2005 it became a part of the Global Sprint Challenge, which features races such as the King's Stand Stakes, Al Quoz Sprint and the Hong Kong International Sprint.

The Diamond Jubilee Stakes was dominated by jockey Lester Piggott, who recorded 10 wins throughout his lengthy career. Piggott's first win came in 1958 with Right Boy and his last came in 1993 with College Chapel.

No other jockey has had much success in the race, but Tom Queally rode Art Connoisseur in 2009 and The Tin Man in 2017.

Unbeaten Australian sprinter Black Caviar won in 2012 as the raging-hot favourite and the race was almost marred by controversy. 

Jockey Luke Nolen eased up on the line aboard Black Caviar and it was almost beaten, but luckily for Nolen and connections, Black Caviar pulled out enough to win.

It was later found that Black Caviar suffered torn muscles during the run, making it even more impressive.

Unlike a lot of Group 1 races in Europe, the Diamond Jubilee isn't dominated by the large breeding stables.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes Betting Guide

Big upsets aren't very common in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, so punters should stick with the well-fancied runners.

The Tin Man paid 6/1 with bookmakers when winning in 2017 and the trifecta was rounded out with two well-favoured runners (Tasleet and Limato).

The Tin Man had finished eighth in the 2016 edition which was taken out by 4/1 third favourite Twilight Son for trainer Henry Candy.

In behind Twilight Son was Gold-Fun and 2015 winner Undrafted, which caused a minor upset when winning at 10/1.

It finished just ahead of Australian miler Brazen Beau, which would subsequently run poorly in the July Cup a month later.

Slade Power was always a popular pick with punters and it won in 2014 at odds of 7/2. The Edward Lynam-trained runner held off a good field and would later travel to Australia where it would be unsuccessful in the Darley Classic, finishing 11th.

Sticking with the favourites is a good way to target the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. Bookmakers often offer good odds for every runner and punters won't be forced to take odds-on for the well-fancied types.

Aidan O’Brien’s three-year-old, Merchant Navy fended off his elders to win the Diamond Jubilee Stakes in 2018.

The following season saw Blue Point complete a famous sprint double at Royal Ascot, winning this Group One just four days after beating Battaash in the King’s Stand Stakes.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes Lead-Up Races

The Duke Of York Stakes and the Sandy Lane Stakes, staged at York and Haydock during May, are often used as stepping stones towards the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

The winners of the Group Three Abernant Stakes and Pavilion Stakes often step up to Group One company at Royal Ascot.

Royal Ascot Track Report

The track at Ascot is testing, particularly when the ground is soft, and the three-furlong home straight is all uphill until the runners hit the line.
