Looking ahead to this race, which was first run way back in 1840, we can be confident that whichever horse does taste victory will be a really top class animal. Run over a distance of exactly one mile, the Queen Anne Stakes is open to horses aged four years and upwards, a restriction that was introduced in in 2003 when the race was upgraded to Group One status.
The legendary Frankel won this one in 2012, whilst Declaration of War and Toronado, both very classy horses, have been victorious since. Heading the betting for this year’s Queen Anne Stakes is the five-year-old Solow, who will come into this one on a run of four straight wins and six in the last seven. It’s hard to oppose the 5/2 favourite but some may feel those odds are just a shade short, although given he has won on different ground and his only defeat was over a much longer trip, we’re inclined to see 5/2 as more than fair.
Those wanting an each way betting tip at longer odds should consider the Irish four-year-old from the Richard Hannon stable, Toormore. Hannon won this race last year and has three successes since 2009, making 16/1 a very attractive price here.
