Run over six furlongs and always contested by a bumper field, the race is named after a small Market town on the outskirts of Ascot, unsurprisingly, called Wokingham. Established since 1864, the race is perhaps the most prestigious handicap run at Ascot throughout the season and is certainly the most lucrative.
In modern days the race is famed for being close to punters hearts due to the huge field, big priced horses and plenty of studying the form-book to undertake.
Due to the big-field nature of the race, punters always lay a heavy bias to the draw and the stats suggest that being drawn higher than stall 20 is the key.
Over 60% of winners have been drawn there in the last 40 years.
