The Diamond Jubilee brings together the top six-furlong sprinters from all around and is a fast and furious contest which is always an exciting watch. The race was won last year by The Tin Man for James Fanshawe and Tom Queally and, all things being well, he will be back to defend his crown come June. He succeeded by a narrow neck in what was a rough race but he stuck his neck out gamely and showed a classy turn of foot to force his head in front. He looked as good as ever when returning with a win at Windsor in May, beating subsequent Group 3 winner D’Bai by a cosy length. All his best efforts have come at Ascot and he always needs extra attention when he returns to this track. He does look firmly exposed against some improving rivals, but he’s mainly consistent and couldn’t be discounted by any means.

Close behind him that day in second was Tasleet, who aside from one blip in the July Cup at Newmarket, enjoyed a very fruitful season for William Haggas and Hamdan Al Maktoum. His career highlight remains a Group 2 victory at York in May 2017, where he relished softer ground to slam a useful field by two lengths. He does have form on a sounder surface though, as proven by his neck defeat in this race twelve months ago on firmer ground. His return at the Curragh in May was a shade disappointing, but he’s entitled to build on it after a long break. His yard has hit form at just the right time and although softer ground would heighten his chances, he has frame claims on any ground.

The short-priced favourite of this race last year and the eventual third was Henry Candy’s stable star Limato. He is an extremely talented horse who was a devastating winner of the 2016 July Cup, but he has had his fair share of issues and has always needed firm ground to be seen at his best. He was only beaten a length behind The Tin Man twelve months ago and followed that up with a good run behind Harry Angel in the July Cup. He’s been stepped up to longer trips since, with a Group 2 victory at Newmarket over seven furlongs another stand-out effort from him. He was very disappointing in the Lockinge at Newbury on his return, but a drop back to this distance is a big positive for a horse with plenty of speed. He is certainly one who cannot be relied on implicitly given his record, but if anywhere near his best, he’s an obvious contender.

The star of last year’s sprinting division was without a doubt Clive Cox’s Harry Angel. He failed to cap off his season with a Group 1 win on Champions Day but was devastating when winning two Group 1s, especially when tearing apart a strong field in the Sprint Cup at Haydock. He is extremely quick for the word go and many horses struggle to go with him from the front, with his turn of foot able to be seen to remarkable effect on any surface. He has a small personality kink which can cause him to boil over at the start sometimes and race too keenly, but if he settles he is very difficult to beat. He was very uncomplicated when winning a York Group 2 on his return, showing plenty of maturity and he is an obvious contender.

It is well known that the Australian sprinting division is very classy and the smart Redkirk Warrior looks likely to launch a raid on the race. He has won his last two races at Group 1 level and has a strike rate throughout his career of seven from thirteen. He looks to be a rapidly improving type who will appreciate the stiff test of six furlongs at Ascot on likely better ground. He adds a nice foreign flavour to an already intriguing race.
