Once again a great day of racing at Ascot with a great victory for The Queen with Tactical, whilst Get It ran a fantastic race in fourth considering his draw.

Like Frankie Dettori I went for the wrong one in the Prince Of Wales, where Lord North was very impressive and First Receiver got caught in the Hampton Court denying The Queen a double.

Today’s racing is as competitive as ever and many members of The Adlestrop Club have entered this year’s tipping competition.   For what it’s worth, my fancies for today are:

1.15pm Maori Knight

1.50pm Sir Dragonet

2.25pm King Leonidas

3pm Battleground

3.35pm Stradivarius (do hope the rain doesn’t stop him)

4.10pm Starcat

4.40pm African Dream

However they run, I’m glad I’m not a milliner.
