Confirmed runners and riders for the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot

The confirmed list of runners and riders for St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday 18th June.

The mile contest is set to feature some of the most promising three-year-olds in Britain and Ireland and has been won in recent times by the likes of Galileo Gold, Barney Roy, Palace Pier, Coroebus and Paddington.

Here's a look at some of the contenders in the St James's Palace Stakes and a reminder that every race across the five days of the Royal Ascot meeting can be watched on the bet365 Sports Live Streaming platform.

St James's Palace Stakes Runners and Riders

There are eight confirmed runners for the 2024 St James's Palace Stakes.

  • Almaqam (Tom Marquand)
  • Alyanaabi (Jim Crowley)
  • Darlinghurst (Christophe Soumillon)
  • Henry Longfellow (Ryan Moore)
  • Metropolitan (Alexis Pouchin)
  • Notable Speech (William Buick)
  • Rosallion (Sean Levey)
  • Unquestionable (Wayne Lordan)

Notable Speech

The Godolphin-owned son of Dubawi remains unbeaten after a very impressive success in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket last month.

He powered home there, defeating subsequent Irish Guineas winner Rosallion (and Curragh second Haatem) with clear daylight between them. Sets the standard for Charlie Appleby, who won this in 2022 with Coroebus following his Rowley Mile Classic win.


No match for Notable Speech at Newmarket but was determined and gutsy since to overhaul stablemate Haatem and justify odds-on favouritism in the Irish 2000 Guineas at the Curragh.

The Richard Hannon-trained son of Blue Point clearly belongs at the top level having opened his Group 1 account in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp last autumn.

Henry Longfellow

He appears to be Aidan O'Brien's leading light despite meeting with a first career defeat in the French Guineas at Longchamp last month on seasonal bow.

The testing underfoot conditions may not have aided his case there and a quick rebound is possible for his master-trainer, the winner of a record nine renewals of this race.


French ace continued his recent progress by winning a Group 3 over nine-furlongs at Chantilly last month on soft ground.

The runner-up has since finished second in the French Derby but this Dark Angel colt has more on his plate down in trip and up in class.


The Owen Burrows-trained son of Too Darn Hot has twice contested Group 1 races and was not disgraced in either.

He was second to City Of Troy in the Dewhurst at Newmarket last season and then fifth behind Notable Speech on the Rowley Mile in last month's 2000 Guineas. Has some improvement to find on paper with a few possible rivals here.


Lope De Vega colt trained by Ed Walker and now very much on the op after wins at Yarmouth and Sandown this season.

Just a maiden in the former race but then stepped up markedly to win the Heron Stakes (1m, soft) last month in decisive fashion. This clearly asks for more but he's improving at a rate of knots.
