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
3.35pm Stradivarius (do hope the rain doesn’t stop him)
4.40pm African Dream
However they run, I’m glad I’m not a milliner.
