Dettori To Miss Royal Ascot

Dettori To Miss Royal Ascot

I felt I was going nowhere and, yes, I thought about calling it a day.

Last year's victor Profitable came home well, but Lady Aurelia extended her advantage in the final 100 yards and passed the post three lengths in front. His first runner was duly beaten out of sight but then he struck gold when Strike The Tiger won the Windsor Castle Stakes and Jealous Again delivered in the Queen Mary.

But in this year's bid to impress and out-dress, racegeors have opted for even more out-there fashion usual with all the weird and wonderful style getting an early show as guests arrived soon after the doors opened.

Since Choisir landed a Royal Ascot sprint double in 2003, Australian runners have graced the meeting every year since, but 2017 will see them draw a blank, although foreign visitors are still coming in healthy numbers with 10 of the 14 American runners coming from Ward's Californian base.

Ward, celebrating his eighth victor at the meeting said: 'She's a very special filly. "She had a bleed last fall".

There's no doubt about that, in minds of the true English, and wouldn't it be marvellous, and indeed extremely appropriate, if this magnificent Aidan O'Brien Galileo colt, named after our magnificent former charismatic commander, was able to extend his impressive sequence of victories with Her Majesty, The Queen in attendance! "I'm really excited for her".

The protesters paused along Kensington Church Street, stopping near Notting Hill Gate station to give speeches by loudspeaker. Protesters are anxious that councilors will dispatch homeless residents far from their communities.

"We're looking forward to it".

Arawak is one of a big team sent over by American trainer Wesley Ward, who has already secured seven previous Royal Ascot winners.

Blue is the colour for the Queen at Royal Ascot, with bettingexpert digging into the data to discover that she has opted for that colour hat at the equine showpiece more times than any other shade. It sounded like a good name for a horse.

Saturday's Hardwicke Stakes was the initial plan for Highland Reel, following his Coronation Cup win at Epsom, but the Prince of Wales's Stakes came back on the agenda following defections of the likes of Cloth Of Stars and So Mi Dar. She had a good winter off. Lady Aurelia took the lead with two furlongs to run and pulled away, winning the five-furlong race in 57.45 seconds, just short of a course record.

I'm happy to take him on at 10/3 with 188BET and would instead advise backing Alan King's WHO DARES WINS at 6/1 with the same firm. In one of the works, he was better.

If Ward is right, everyone else could be chasing their losses.
