Queen Anne Stakes History
Established in 1840 as the Trial Stakes, it was renamed in honour of Queen Anne in 1930.
It was given Group 1 status in 2003 when taken out by Dubai Destination and it's a rare 1600m race to be run down the straight.
Despite not being rated at Group 1 level until 2003, the Queen Anne Stakes was targeted by the major stables, including Henry Cecil, Luca Cumani and Saeed bin Suroor.
Those three trainers, along with Sir Michael Stoute, have dominated the Queen Anne Stakes. Saeed bin Suroor has won the race an incredible seven times and Henry Cecil won the race on four straight occasions in the 1980's.
Saeed bin Suroor repeated that feat in the late 1990's and he would return in 2003 with Dubai Destination and in 2004 with Refuse to Bend.
Sir Gordon Richards scored six wins as a jockey in the early 20th century, but was matched by Frankie Dettori, who scored most recently in 2007 with Ramonti.
There have been four two-time winners, but not since 1907. Royal Ascot legend, Frankel was a once in a lifetime thoroughbred and it scored one of the most impressive wins in the Queen Anne Stakes' history.
The Henry Cecil-trained champion won by 11 lengths over high-quality rivals Excelebration, Side Glance and Strong Suit.
Royal Ascot is often dominated by the big stables and the Queen Anne Stakes is a classic example of this.
The major stables have won the last 19 of 23 Queen Anne Stakes races and punters should be looking for the well-fancied thoroughbreds.
Ribchester scored as the 11/10 favourite in 2017 for trainer Richard Fahey and it got punters off to the right start at Royal Ascot.
An even field was presented in 2016 and it was arguably one of the most disappointing fields in recent history, but American-bred Tepin was too good for them at 11/2.
Belardo and Ervedya were the 9/2 joint favourites, but second was their best go with Belardo finishing a half-length behind Tepin.
The good record of favourites was evident in 2015 when Solow won at 11/8. The hugely-popular runner scored comfortably by a length and there were some big bets placed on the French-trained runner.
2014 saw another favourite win in Toronado. The Richard Hannon-trained runner paid only 4/5 with bookmakers and punters once again got their Royal Ascot carnival off to a good start.
Frankel was the shortest-priced winner in history when scoring at odds of 1/10 in 2012. As the 11-length win suggested, victory was never in doubt and the big bettors were rewarded.
Incredibly, only four and five-year-old's have won the Queen Anne Stakes since 1980.
It's a tough race to win and the older thoroughbreds struggle to keep up with the fresher horses.
Favourites have really struggled in the two most recent renewals of the Queen Anne Stakes, with horses starting with odds of 10/1 or longer filling the top four places in both 2018 and 2019.
In '18, 33/1 outsider Accidental Agent handed trainer Eve Johnson Houghton a surprise first Group One win. The following year, it was Lord Glitters who came through with a powerful late surge to snatch his first top-level triumph.
