This six-furlong sprint race is always one of the most popular betting events of the meeting and this year will be no different. The leading contenders for the title this year are Duke Of Firenze and Rex Imperator, but as Dandy Boy showed last year, the field packs as much of a punch as the favourites.

Of the 30 races run at the Royal Ascot Meeting, the Wokingham Stakes is perhaps the most popular. With such a large field, this sprint race requires a study of the horses running in the event and of the form book. The odds for the race tend to be fairly big, owing to the size of the field, with the favourites fetching a relatively high price. The race always attracts attention from the betting world, even though the favourites don’t have a very good record in the event. In the last 11 year, six horses have won at double figure prices, including last year, when the winner landed from 33’s.

The horse that has been getting the most attention so far this year is Duke Of Firenze. Sir Michael Stoute’s colt has won twice this year already, including last time out at Epsom on 1 June. The four year old will be aiming for his fifth career victory on Saturday, but the unpredictable nature of the race means that it will be a difficult one to call.

Rounding up the top three in the market, and the only other horses with single figure prices, are Rex Imperator and Gabriel’s Lad. Rex Imperator has had a less than stellar year, with his best finish coming in a second place finish at Doncaster earlier in June. The was his only placing this season though, with his last win coming last June. Gabriel’s Lad, on the other hand, has raced just once this year, finishing second behind Hamza in May.
