Royal Ascot: The most elegant looks throughout the years

Royal Ascot: The most elegant looks throughout the years

Jockey Daniel Tudhope rides Chatburn for O'Meara in the same race.

But Ribchester - under the careful charge of William Buick - should have nothing to fear from this foreign legion in the Qipco British Champions Series race, a prize once claimed by the legendary Frankel.

"It's my favorite racecourse, it's a lovely setting, with the best horses competing", Ward said. Note today's faster ground is considered a positive by connections. Her handler is bullish at the best of times but you do get the impression he would be very disappointed if his filly failed to give her running.

"Barring the two American horses there's nothing in the race we don't know and we're very comfortable with where we are", he said.

If the Lady Aurelia that blitzed the Queen Mary a year ago turns up it probably will be, but that performance came on soft ground and she hasn't come close to replicating the form in three starts since. With most bookies offering normal each-way terms I'll just be having the win bet, but Sky Bet are going 1/5 the odds 1,2,3,4,5 and bet365 ¼ the odds 1,2,3,4 if you'd prefer the place insurance.

"It would be a fairytale".

Iraqi forces on the ground are being supported by the US -led coalition as well as Iraqi war planes, Brigadier Rasool said. ISIS is also using suicide vehicle and motorcycle bombs, booby traps, and sniper and mortar fire against the troops.

Royal Ascot gets underway on Tuesday afternoon When is it on?

When you call your horse Churchill then nothing less than victory will do - but the double classic victor won't have it all his way in the showpiece St James's Palace Stakes.

With such confidence behind Barney Roy there's a possibility Churchill will touch "evens" in the betting ring; that would be irresistible for professionals who will doubtless focus on another "shortie" in the opening group one Queen Anne Stakes over the straight mile, Ribchester, trained two hundred miles away at Malton, Yorkshire, by Richard Fahey.

Will Ribchester confirm his status as the foremost miler in Europe and will Aidan O'Brien continue his dominance with Churchill and Winter favourites for the St James' Palace and Coronation Stakes respectively?

However, I backed him in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and I can't get the image of Donnacha O'Brien looking around after about 50 yards to see where Churchill was out of my mind. "As technology and markets continue to expand, we're excited to team with Royal Ascot to continue showcasing our sport to bettors around the world". He's very straightforward and he should be happy on the firmer ground.

Harrington trained the victor of the Cheltenham Gold Cup courtesy of Sizing John earlier in the year and it will be some performance to train a juvenile victor at Royal Ascot three months later.
