June is just about the best month of the year for flat racing fans, with the Epsom Classics kicking off the action and the superb Royal Ascot meeting bringing the month to a thrilling conclusion. It all kicks off with race one: The Queen Anne Stakes. In common with many of the week’s contests, this one mile event is a Group 1 affair. First run way back in 1840, the race continues to attract the crème de la crème of the miling division and has been won by some real superstars over the years, including the likes of Cape Cross, Goldikova and of course the mighty Frankel.

With defending champion Tepin not making the trip over from America this year, and 2016 runner up Belardo now enjoying a career at stud, it is left to the third placed finisher Lightning Spear to represent the form from 12 months ago. For those who believe the David Simcock colt can make the frame once again, there may be a touch of each way value around, as illustrated by the latest odds shown in our live odds comparison.

The two most recent renewals of this have fallen to one of the foreign raiders, with the wonderful French grey Solow taking the prize in 2015, and US superstar Tepin crossing the Atlantic to conquer all last year. The foreign threat doesn’t appear to be quite so potent this time around however and the one they all have to beat for our money is the Richard Fahey trained, Ribchester. An excellent winner of the Lockinge last time out, Fahey, rates him the best horse he has ever trained and he looks set to take some stopping here.

For those who believe the foreign trend may well continue for a third year in a row, it is the French who look to boast the strongest hand. Heshem has looked a horse on the up this year, and whilst Qemah was a little disappointing last time out, she does boast winning Royal Ascot form having taken the Coronation Stakes in good style last season. That came against her own sex though and she may face a tall order repeating the feat against the colts.

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.
