The storm clouds are gathering over London. The atmosphere is changing,

:00:58.:01:02.

but we move from one iconic landmark to another. Welcome here

:01:02.:01:05.

to the vast expanse of Ascot Racecourse, where thousands of

:01:05.:01:09.

people are pouring through the gates and we expect over the five

:01:09.:01:14.

days, that 250,000 people will come here to enjoy the unique mixture of

:01:14.:01:18.

sport and social interaction. The rain is just starting to drizzle

:01:18.:01:23.

down, but yesterday, on the opening day, we had a roll of thunder and

:01:23.:01:28.

flash of lightning, providing by Canford Cliffs in beating Goldikova

:01:28.:01:38.
:01:38.:02:02.

and by the extraordinary Frankel. MUSIC COMMENTATOR: Canford Cliffs

:02:02.:02:12.
:02:12.:02:19.

goes on to win from Goldikova. Star Witness down the outside. Prohibit

:02:19.:02:26.

has got up to win. It's Frankel now. He's starting to paddle. He's going

:02:26.:02:35.

up and down. He's held on. Frankel has won it! Your first winner as

:02:35.:02:39.

Sir Henry Cecil, any difference? Not at all different. Are you

:02:39.:02:48.

getting used to being called Sir Henry now? No. Willie Carson

:02:48.:02:51.

alongside me. Welcome everybody. Again, this wind is picking up as

:02:51.:02:56.

well. The rain has just started. It's hitting our backs here. It is.

:02:56.:03:04.

Use your microphone. Looking back yesterday and you saw Sir Henry

:03:04.:03:08.

Cecil's reaction and it was relief more than anything. It was. The

:03:08.:03:12.

horse hit the trigger a little too early yesterday. Tom Queally, he

:03:12.:03:16.

just sent the horse home just after he passed the four furlong marker

:03:16.:03:20.

and just lasted home. Henry was of the opinion he was getting bored in

:03:20.:03:27.

front, but a lot of people thought he was getting tired. Any way, I'm

:03:27.:03:30.

sure - he'll never be ridden like that again. I'm sure they'll hang

:03:30.:03:36.

on to him a lot longer and keep the finger away from the trigger.

:03:36.:03:40.

within the last two furlongs. It was exciting. He maintains his

:03:40.:03:44.

record. Lovely horse. Another winner for Henry Cecil and another

:03:44.:03:48.

Royal Ascot winner. He remains our most successful trainer here of the

:03:48.:03:54.

modern era. Various of those are hoping that their fortunes will

:03:54.:03:57.

change or enjoy a good day out. They are coming through the doors

:03:57.:04:04.

in huge hats and small ones. Bright colours and pastels. Lawrie there,

:04:04.:04:07.

closely involved with the special Olympics. Another Southampton

:04:07.:04:11.

connection there, Mick Channon, now a very successful trainer. And

:04:11.:04:17.

Richard Hammond of Top Gear fame and various other programmes as

:04:17.:04:21.

well. Jamie Spencer, still looking for his first winner of the week.

:04:21.:04:26.

Johnny Murtagh won the last, last night and Tom was on board Frankel,

:04:26.:04:31.

within yesterday. William Buick was rueing what might have been. Didn't

:04:31.:04:36.

quite make it in time. Kieren Fallon, who had heavy physio

:04:36.:04:41.

yesterday. Now fit to ride. Ryan Moore there. He will take the ride

:04:41.:04:51.
:04:51.:04:56.

on so you think. -- So U Think. son had a very good ride in Ireland.

:04:56.:05:00.

Got the business done and they have a runner in the first, that Ryan

:05:00.:05:06.

Moore rides. That's not the main one. The main one is in the third

:05:06.:05:10.

race. We are so excited, because this horse has been given a big

:05:10.:05:18.

leggup by his trainer, saying -- leg-up by the trainer, saying he's

:05:18.:05:22.

possibly the best horse he has trained. This guy has got to be

:05:22.:05:26.

something special. We are all looking forward to seeing him in

:05:26.:05:31.

the paddock. I've never seen him. Lots of people haven't seen him in

:05:31.:05:36.

the flesh, because he's had a huge career in Australia and then

:05:36.:05:46.
:05:46.:05:48.

Ireland and so we are look ing forward to seeing So You Think.

:05:48.:05:52.

There are a lot of dark clouds and the clerk has said that he expects

:05:52.:05:56.

light showers and it's just spitting, so there may be more

:05:56.:06:01.

moisture coming. However, the going has quickened up over the last 24

:06:01.:06:04.

hours. All around the course the official description is good.

:06:04.:06:10.

Yesterday it was good, good to soft in places. The round course is the

:06:10.:06:15.

same. The straight course, the Royal Hunt Cup takes place over a

:06:15.:06:19.

mile here and the race was run here yesterday and there seemed to be a

:06:19.:06:22.

bias to the stands and that will be maintained throughout the afternoon,

:06:22.:06:26.

I think. There are quite a few runners on the far side and that

:06:26.:06:29.

may prove a negative. You want to be on the standside rail and that

:06:29.:06:33.

will give you an advantage in that race. As Willie and Claire were

:06:33.:06:39.

talking about, the feature race, apart from the Cup is the Prince of

:06:39.:06:46.

Wales' Stakes and the favourite is So You Think. The ground will be

:06:46.:06:49.

fine for him. He'll take a lot of stopping. It's a day we can't wait

:06:49.:06:59.
:06:59.:07:05.

for. He's been described as something out of the ordinary. He's

:07:05.:07:08.

so excited about the hot favourite, that is Aidan O'Brien. The French

:07:08.:07:13.

have won this in the past three of the fours and they put up Planteur,

:07:13.:07:17.

who has an exciting turn of foot. We'll have an interview and a view

:07:17.:07:21.

into the mind of the ten-times champion trainer, Sir Henry Cecil,

:07:21.:07:25.

who leads the way here at Royal Ascot. We'll get a chance to enjoy

:07:25.:07:28.

Frankie Dettori on his favourite racecourse, the scene of his

:07:28.:07:33.

magnificent seven. He has a strong book of rides today. Kieren Fallon,

:07:33.:07:38.

who missed yesterday with a cicked neck, is trying to add to --

:07:38.:07:44.

cricked neck, is trying to add to his wins here. We will enjoy the

:07:44.:07:50.

talent of Mickael Barzalona, just 19 years old. As always, fashion is

:07:50.:07:55.

very much to the fore. We have the wonderful and we have the slightly

:07:55.:08:04.

weird. The strangest of weather conditions. Pouring with rain one

:08:04.:08:08.

moment and then the sun comes out. It's absolutely glorious. Agentle

:08:08.:08:11.

introduction to fashion yesterday and today. We are really going to

:08:11.:08:20.

step up the gears and we are talking about hats with Louis.

:08:20.:08:23.

so exciting. Here we are celebrating 300 years of Ascot and

:08:23.:08:28.

I have to say, I'm in heaven and of course you are looking stunning in

:08:28.:08:33.

your Jane Taylor hat. All the fathers and you look stunning as

:08:33.:08:42.

always. Thank you very much. We are seeing a lot of feathers today.

:08:42.:08:48.

Here are some beauties. This is very much My Fair Lady. Black and

:08:48.:08:55.

white. Wonderful. Now we have butterflies. I love that whole look.

:08:55.:08:59.

Look at her eyes. Stunning with the hat. Absolutely, the classic

:08:59.:09:03.

English look. This is high street, this hat and she carries that off

:09:03.:09:07.

and added the feathers on that. This is vintage antique bird of

:09:07.:09:12.

paradise and that really is a great plume. Of course, the girls in red.

:09:12.:09:16.

For me, it's African sunset. I love this hat. It's double brimmed and

:09:16.:09:23.

she keeps it clean and fresh and exciting. I adore that look. And

:09:23.:09:27.

it's very much under the sea there. More detail about the hats during

:09:27.:09:31.

the day with you, but yesterday it was the Royal procession that lead

:09:31.:09:37.

the way, I think, in the fashion Stakes. They looked beautiful, but

:09:37.:09:42.

particularly, I think, The Duchess of Cornwall, wearing what she wore

:09:42.:09:48.

to the wedding but she looks amazing in that hat. And the coat

:09:48.:09:53.

too. What I loved about that hat, she can be very elegant and

:09:53.:09:58.

understated and the Queen looks wonderful in the green and the brim

:09:58.:10:06.

and the grown there. It was a scene stealer. It really was. This lady

:10:06.:10:12.

is always stealing the show here as Royal Ascot. You will know if you

:10:12.:10:16.

watch us, Isabel is absolutely gorgeous. Is that one of your

:10:16.:10:22.

designs? The hat, of course, is from DD Valentine and it was

:10:22.:10:24.

inspired by the Victorian riding hat, because of the 300 years

:10:24.:10:28.

celebration and we thought it would be nice to wear something like that.

:10:29.:10:36.

The skirt is one of mine, but the jacket is an old Mugler. I couldn't

:10:36.:10:42.

resist this morning, because I've never won heels and I want to --

:10:42.:10:46.

worn tails and I want to wear them today. You look fantastic. You

:10:46.:10:49.

carry it off very well. It was highly competitive yesterday. I

:10:49.:10:54.

thought it was tricky to pick winners, but in the end, punters or

:10:54.:10:58.

bookies in front? Punters. The bookies are suffering after day one.

:10:58.:11:03.

May they suffer up to day five. They've not heard me, have they?

:11:03.:11:06.

Canford Cliffs and the one in the last. Last was massive. Before we

:11:06.:11:13.

went off air, we said they took 3-1, but to return there were plenty of

:11:13.:11:17.

cheers. What about today? It looks harder, but we'll look at the

:11:17.:11:23.

horses that have been backed today. In the first race we have

:11:23.:11:33.
:11:33.:11:35.

Codemaster. It's now less 2-1. Various fortunes. Also in the 3.05

:11:35.:11:44.

Sajjhaa. Then So You Think, now 2-5. Williams hills put a 90,000 to win

:11:44.:11:54.
:11:54.:11:55.

and boylesports 45,000 to win 20. Fortunes for that one. Which one of

:11:55.:12:01.

those would you back? I've got to put the first one. Codemaster?

:12:01.:12:05.

Fortune to it all morning. The gamble is continuing. We'll keep

:12:06.:12:09.

you up-to-date throughout the afternoon. I'm not surprised to

:12:09.:12:13.

hear Gary say it looks harder. It always does. It starts off with the

:12:13.:12:17.

three group ones on the first day, fantastic racing and favourites

:12:17.:12:21.

should go in, but it gets more competitive today and we have a

:12:21.:12:25.

really good mix of racing, handicaps and group ones here this

:12:25.:12:35.
:12:35.:12:47.

afternoon. Let's look at the menu Race two is the Windsor Forest

:12:47.:12:52.

Stakes. It's a collection of very smart fillies and mares and Johnny

:12:52.:12:57.

Murtagh is the most significant riding engagement for Jacqueline

:12:57.:13:04.

Quest. Then they'll be talking about this one for weeks, I reckon.

:13:04.:13:10.

We see So You Think stepping out. Then 28 runners face the starter

:13:10.:13:15.

for the charge up the straight. One of the most competitive races of

:13:15.:13:18.

the week and then that's on BBC Two, don't forget. We start the first

:13:19.:13:26.

two races on BBC One. Here is the Queen Mary Stakes. The fillies here

:13:26.:13:31.

and then the 5.35, on the red button and it's the Sandringham

:13:31.:13:37.

Handicap. It's over a mile and the Queen has a runner. Here's the non-

:13:37.:13:47.
:13:47.:14:06.

us talk through the Royal procession. Did you enjoy

:14:06.:14:09.

yesterday? It was lovely. So nice to be back, I must say and to see

:14:09.:14:13.

it all in the sun. Not quite so lucky today. The Royal procession

:14:13.:14:17.

has started already, but I fear, or they may have got wet on the way,

:14:17.:14:23.

but now the sun. We may get a rainbow. We might. I'm sure the

:14:23.:14:28.

Queen will stay until the end, because she has a runner. She has a

:14:28.:14:33.

good chance. Maybe I'll put money on it. The Queen's had 20 winners

:14:33.:14:37.

over the years, so maybe 21 on the way? Fantastic. I don't know what

:14:37.:14:43.

colour the money is on for what she is wearing today. It looks to me,

:14:43.:14:49.

as if she is wearing ah, pink! That puts me in my place. Absolutely. I

:14:49.:14:55.

said blue. With her, the Duke, on the second day, looking very happy.

:14:55.:15:01.

Pink and white, so in the first carriage we have the Queen and the

:15:01.:15:11.
:15:11.:15:14.

Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of Abercorn and the Duke of Dalbussy.

:15:14.:15:20.

His wife was here yesterday. He was an Ulster Unionist MP as a young

:15:20.:15:27.

man. I love the way the Prince is looking over to see how far the

:15:27.:15:33.

wheels are in the ground. He's presenting a trophy. In the second

:15:33.:15:37.

carriage we have princess Alexandra in the purple and we have The

:15:37.:15:41.

Duchess of Gloucester and the Duke of Gloucester and Mr Christopher

:15:41.:15:48.

Rhys Jones. The wind is getting up. Very much a family carriage. The

:15:48.:15:53.

Duke of Gloucester and princess Alexandra, both cousins of the

:15:53.:16:03.
:16:03.:16:10.

Queen. Both grandchildren of George 56. -- George V. It's lovely to see

:16:10.:16:15.

Sophie's father included there. It would be nice to see the Middletons

:16:15.:16:21.

here in the future. Lord Vesty there. Saluting the crowd and on

:16:21.:16:31.

Sid him is his wife. We also have lady Braborne and Mr Sam Bullard,

:16:31.:16:36.

who gives so much advice to Sheikh Mohammed and runs the Darley side

:16:36.:16:42.

of breeding. He's director of stallions. What does one do with

:16:42.:16:45.

that Basically makes sure they are all well promoted and mares come to

:16:45.:16:49.

visit and also advises on the horses to buy in terms of making

:16:49.:16:57.

potentially good stal Johns. Ah. -- stallions. Ah. It's not hands on?

:16:57.:17:01.

He doesn't direct operations, as it were! What a wonderful sight. Even

:17:01.:17:05.

though the sun isn't out, it's wonderful. In the fourth we have

:17:05.:17:15.
:17:15.:17:19.

Sir Anthony Bamford and his wife. Dramatic hat and also MrAnt any

:17:19.:17:29.
:17:29.:17:32.

Lauriston- Clarke his wife. Anthony is the chairman of JCB and

:17:32.:17:39.

his wife is a horse owner. She won the Oaks? Yes. Fantastic. She also

:17:39.:17:42.

has a huge organic farm and a lovely spar in Gloucestershire, so

:17:42.:17:50.

she is very green. The Windsor greys getting frisky in front. They

:17:50.:17:55.

need to try to stay in trot and it's a measured pace. They'll be

:17:55.:17:59.

looking for their summer holidays. In August and September they are

:17:59.:18:03.

put out to grass at Hampton Court, I think. Very nice spot to be. Now,

:18:03.:18:07.

what do we have in terms of the details of the outfit? The Queen is

:18:07.:18:14.

wearing a pink and white spotted dress by Stewart Parvin. She wears

:18:14.:18:24.
:18:24.:18:26.

a lot from him and a white coat and her hat, if she can hold it on, is

:18:26.:18:31.

Philip Summerville. It looks like a Mr Whippy. I'm sure it's not the

:18:31.:18:35.

technical term. It does, delicious! It's lovely to think that these two

:18:35.:18:39.

have been married now for nearly 64 years and what a strong partnership

:18:39.:18:46.

it is. She fell for him - he's having a nice laugh there - when

:18:46.:18:51.

she was 13. He was showing her around Dartmouth naval college and

:18:51.:18:57.

she thought he is a bit of a stunner. He was. And he was. A

:18:57.:19:01.

prince in his own right. I love the fact that the sparkle is still

:19:01.:19:04.

there between them after more than 60 years of marriage and more than

:19:04.:19:08.

70 years of knowing one another. You see it from time to time.

:19:08.:19:13.

sense of humour helps. I think so. What the Duke said at the 50th

:19:13.:19:19.

wedding anniversary was that the Queen has tolerance and that's a

:19:19.:19:24.

very necessary ingredient for a long marriage. She depends on him a

:19:25.:19:32.

great deal. She at the same dinner, said that Prince Phillip has quite

:19:32.:19:35.

simply been her stay and the country owes him a debt of

:19:35.:19:39.

gratitude that probably neither he nor we fully recognise. I thought

:19:39.:19:45.

it was a wonderful tribute. He's the longer serving concert? Indeed.

:19:45.:19:50.

In a few years' time she may well be the longest serving monarch, but

:19:50.:19:54.

I think Very Wisely from the start, she has let him wear the trousers

:19:54.:19:58.

at home. He is the boss at home, as I think you know. Not in that much

:19:58.:20:03.

detail, but I did have a funny experience having lunch at Windsor

:20:03.:20:06.

Castle and Prince Phillip has a bell in front of him and it's up to

:20:06.:20:09.

him to ring the bell to tell the servants to come through to clear

:20:09.:20:12.

each course and he was deeply involved in a conversation so the

:20:12.:20:20.

call came down, Philip, bell! she not have one of her own? No, he

:20:20.:20:26.

said certainly not. I think that is a secret of how they've kept going

:20:26.:20:29.

in partnership. For a man as proud of Prince Phillip, a Royal Prince

:20:29.:20:32.

himself, quite hard to play second fiddle the whole time, which is

:20:32.:20:38.

something he's had to do. He said from the start he regards it as his

:20:38.:20:42.

prime duty. Of course, that's why he gave up his naval career and

:20:42.:20:49.

it's wonderful she has made him Lord High Admiral for his 90th

:20:49.:20:53.

birthday, and it's a nice touch. You can see the vast expanse of the

:20:53.:20:56.

new grandstand. It's such an impressive building and it runs for

:20:56.:21:04.

nearly quarter of a mile. It's nearly two furlongs long. That's

:21:04.:21:14.
:21:14.:21:36.

why my feet hurt so much yesterday! We'll pause for the National Anthem.

:21:36.:21:46.
:21:46.:21:56.

(the National Anthem) We talked earlier about the Queen's

:21:56.:22:00.

involvement in racing today, specifically with Humdrum running

:22:00.:22:04.

in the last, but the important thing to notice is she owns the

:22:04.:22:10.

racecourse and it has always been Royal land. 300 years ago, queen

:22:10.:22:14.

Anne who sounded quite a feisty character, we were told was

:22:14.:22:17.

rampaging through the forest in a one-horse chariot, because she was

:22:17.:22:22.

too fat to ride any more and she thought this is a great place for a

:22:22.:22:26.

racecourse and here we are 300 years later. She said the perfect

:22:26.:22:32.

place for horses to gallop at full stretch. And in the first races it

:22:32.:22:36.

was hunters. Very big stirredy things and ran for 12 miles. They

:22:36.:22:39.

ran in three heats of four miles and the last one standing was the

:22:39.:22:44.

one that would win. It has changed entirely, but we still have

:22:44.:22:48.

traditions. Years ago it used to be a boxing match after the races and

:22:48.:22:53.

quite vicious boxing matches. I'm told one Tom Sellway in 1777 lost

:22:53.:23:03.

an eye, but we have a sing-song now. I think it's rather safer. In those

:23:03.:23:08.

days, women weren't really allowed to own race horses. You probably

:23:08.:23:14.

know who used the pseudonym Mr Jersey for her horses? Was that

:23:14.:23:18.

Lillie Langtry? It was. I knew you would know that. The Jersey Stakes

:23:18.:23:23.

is today. It's the first race today. I wonder if it goes back to that?

:23:23.:23:28.

They'll be heading soon up into the Royal box. Queen Victoria got so

:23:28.:23:32.

excited about the racing once he tried to lean out of the window not

:23:32.:23:35.

realising it was closed and shattered it. She survived to tell

:23:35.:23:41.

the tale. The Queen still rides. Some people think she doesn't, but

:23:41.:23:47.

I saw a picture of her recently with her youngest grandchildren on

:23:47.:23:52.

horseback. With theerly of Wessex's children? That's right. The Queen

:23:52.:23:55.

had to stop riding for a while under medical advice and there was

:23:55.:24:02.

a lot of talk she had given up, but she has absolutely has not. Here

:24:03.:24:12.
:24:13.:24:13.

they come into the parade ring. APPLAUSE

:24:13.:24:16.

It's interesting, on a sporting level, the American trainers and

:24:16.:24:20.

Australians that are here, were making comparisons the Americans

:24:20.:24:23.

with the Breeders' Cup and the Australians with their festival in

:24:23.:24:28.

Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup, but nowhere else in the world has

:24:28.:24:34.

this. It is quite something to see, as they come around now. The crowds

:24:34.:24:36.

are applauding. This is what they've waited to see. They've

:24:36.:24:40.

stood here in the rain and now the sun's come out. The weather

:24:40.:24:47.

forecast for tomorrow and Friday is pretty dreadful. Fortunately, I

:24:47.:24:50.

sharn't be here! Thank you. The Queen's very much the one who makes

:24:50.:24:54.

the decision. It was interesting the day of Trooping the Colour, it

:24:54.:24:57.

started to rain before the carriage procession, but clearly the Queen

:24:57.:25:02.

had said we are going with the roof down and we'll be fine and again

:25:02.:25:12.
:25:12.:25:15.

today. It's the most lovely atmosphere and it's excitement

:25:15.:25:19.

combined with deep respect and enthusiasm for the Queen and for

:25:19.:25:25.

the Royal Family. It's a wonderful sight. Of course, their busy year

:25:25.:25:30.

isn't over. They have another Royal Wedding with Zara Philips. Marrying

:25:30.:25:37.

Mike Tindall. I hoped they might be here. I gather he's been having a

:25:37.:25:43.

rather exciting stag weekend in Miami Beach. As they dismount from

:25:43.:25:48.

the lead carriage, we'll enjoy again the wonderful shots of this

:25:48.:25:53.

Royal procession coming down the straight mile. Prince Phillip

:25:53.:25:57.

pointing out different things that he notices along the way and again,

:25:57.:26:02.

the Queen warmly responding to the crowds here. Both of them have a

:26:02.:26:12.
:26:12.:26:13.

very keen eye for detail. They love the small parts and that keeps you

:26:13.:26:17.

enthusiastic noticing small things. I don't know when they'll show

:26:17.:26:21.

their age, but they're not doing it at the moment. Thank you very much

:26:21.:26:25.

Jennie Bond. The Royal party will make their way up to the Royal box

:26:25.:26:29.

and as they do so, we will see where the money is going here on

:26:29.:26:35.

the second day of Royal Ascot. in the betting ring. The opening

:26:35.:26:40.

race, the Jersey Stakes. You can see the favourite, 2-1, Codemaster.

:26:40.:26:48.

4-1 for Havane Smoker. Oracle is ridden by Ryan Moore. He was a

:26:48.:26:53.

strong fancy for the top jockeys' championship this week and here's

:26:53.:26:58.

one of the best and we were hoping Ryan Moore wouldn't ride a wen, but

:26:58.:27:07.

it never worked out He has -- a winner, but it never worked out. He

:27:07.:27:15.

has gone and spoilt it. He's 3-1 on. You frightened the life out of me

:27:15.:27:20.

then. You know where he's been all morning? Looking at the animals.

:27:20.:27:26.

He's been at the save Farrah park. He got the tie from there. It's a

:27:26.:27:30.

cracker. All week we are getting tips for people. I have to say we

:27:30.:27:36.

did all right. You did good. Mine travelled beautifully in rear and

:27:36.:27:41.

stayed there all the way through. What are we going for today?

:27:41.:27:50.

followed the money. This first race here code mass ter, -- Codemaster,

:27:50.:27:56.

has been 3-1 and now it was eleven and now 5-2 and 2-1 or less in the

:27:56.:28:04.

ring and I think at that price it's mine. Willie, go on. I'm going for

:28:04.:28:07.

Sajjhaa. Frankie Dettori you can never leave him out at Ascot. I

:28:07.:28:12.

would think one has a big chance and he can get me out of problem.

:28:12.:28:22.
:28:22.:28:22.

He never got me out of trouble. Walter Buick, he fell asleep.

:28:22.:28:31.

William?! I'm going for Start Right. He should tack over to the near

:28:31.:28:37.

side. I have to fancy this horse is better. Kieren Fallon's neck injury

:28:37.:28:42.

will be OK. He'll be looking around for dangers. When you are the top

:28:42.:28:47.

jockey here, they give you an armband. They always do and when

:28:47.:28:50.

the first race yesterday was run, Richard Hughes won the race and he

:28:51.:28:57.

has been wearing the armband ever since. It's a golden one that they

:28:57.:29:04.

put on the sleeve. Ryan Moore is in front. What we are going to do is

:29:04.:29:09.

give an armband to whoever is in front in the tipping competition

:29:09.:29:13.

and this is going to break my heart, but look, you have got to put this

:29:13.:29:17.

on your hand and keep it there, because you are the leading tipster.

:29:17.:29:24.

I can't believe it. First winner in 25 years. Royal! Absolutely. You

:29:24.:29:33.

have to wear that. It's not big enough. Have you got one in XXXL?

:29:33.:29:40.

It's only borrowed. Come on Frankie! We are not too far away

:29:40.:29:43.

from the first race. Christophe Soumillon is with me. To begin with,

:29:43.:29:47.

Havane Smoker in the first race, last time you didn't ride him, but

:29:47.:29:52.

he was second in the French 2000 Guineas. He drops in trip. Will

:29:52.:29:58.

that help? Listen, the first start was on seven furlongs. Last year

:29:58.:30:02.

when I won on him he did well. I think he's better on seven for sure.

:30:02.:30:05.

The last time in the French Guineas he was hitting the front and the

:30:05.:30:10.

last 200 metres you can seement p actions going shorter so it was

:30:10.:30:14.

probably -- can see his actions going shorter, so it was probably a

:30:14.:30:18.

distance problem. Now on the straight course, he run for the

:30:18.:30:23.

first time and finished second, so we'll see. Ascot is quite difficult,

:30:23.:30:33.
:30:33.:30:45.

so even seven furlongs here can be Planeu? All the horses are running

:30:45.:30:54.

after that. So even this horse won. It was a

:30:54.:31:01.

good line. He won easy this time. He is a horse with a very good turn

:31:01.:31:06.

of foot. If the ground is good, he will give a good reply.

:31:06.:31:12.

I wanted to ask you. Everybody is talking about So You Think. Are you

:31:12.:31:17.

scared of him? I am not scared. I want to know how he is running and

:31:17.:31:20.

I would like to see this horse because I think he is a great horse.

:31:20.:31:24.

Many people speak about him over the world when I was in Japan or

:31:24.:31:31.

Hong Kong, from Australia, everybody looked at this horse like

:31:31.:31:38.

a great champion. It is great if Planteau can try to beat him.

:31:38.:31:48.
:31:48.:31:49.

friends. You last saw them saluting the Queen as she went by in that

:31:49.:31:55.

Royal Procession. Yes, we paid respect to Her Majesty.

:31:55.:32:01.

Now how many times have you been to to Royal Ascot? This is my fifth

:32:01.:32:03.

time. Have you seen the fashions

:32:03.:32:07.

changing? I haven't been watching the fashions! Yes, they have.

:32:07.:32:15.

Do you like a bet? I do. Have you got any tips for us? Well, no.

:32:15.:32:20.

Oh thank you, for that. It is the Jersey Stakes and I'm from Jersey.

:32:20.:32:23.

That's why. And that's a good race to have a

:32:23.:32:28.

flutter on. And how about you? Are you all right there with your arm

:32:28.:32:32.

around me? I'm loving there, darling. Don't worry about that.

:32:32.:32:38.

What do you get up to during the day at Ascot? If I told you, I

:32:38.:32:42.

would get locked up. How many times have you been here?

:32:42.:32:47.

Eleven times. What is it it that is so special?

:32:47.:32:52.

The Queen appears here and we should come and pay our respects.

:32:52.:32:58.

She did look glorious today. She is looking younger and all the

:32:58.:33:04.

women in the beautiful costumes look younger, or is it that I'm

:33:04.:33:06.

getting older? It could be something like that!

:33:06.:33:12.

Do you mind if I squeeze out of your grasp? I am here with two

:33:12.:33:16.

wonderful ladies who know something about style about style and

:33:16.:33:23.

elegance. I love the style. Who is your hat by? Harold and Hatters.

:33:23.:33:26.

You execute that very well. Over here, we have that beautiful look

:33:26.:33:30.

with the hair really beautiful, clean up and really show casing the

:33:30.:33:37.

hat. Who is your design inspiration? I would like to think

:33:37.:33:40.

Alexander McQueen. Don't you think that look is really

:33:40.:33:45.

well put together. Really well put together and

:33:45.:33:54.

for Codemaster. This is the team responsible for the favourite, the

:33:54.:34:04.
:34:04.:34:07.

trainer, Dane O'Neill will be the man on board.

:34:07.:34:13.

Yesterday in our last race, these colours enjoyed their first Royal

:34:13.:34:17.

Ascot success courtesy of this horse. It is because he was so

:34:17.:34:24.

impressive that the money has come in the Queen Mary today. A lovely

:34:24.:34:31.

horse. A wonderful moment for sheikh Fad.

:34:31.:34:37.

How did you enjoy that yesterday? It was an amazing day. The first

:34:37.:34:42.

winner at Royal Ascot. That all goes to the team. Hopefully we have

:34:42.:34:46.

some something -- something nice running today.

:34:46.:34:50.

A lot of people think you are going to win this today? I am hopeful. If

:34:50.:34:53.

he finishes in the top three, I will be happy.

:34:53.:34:55.

You are new to the sport of flat racing and you have committed

:34:55.:34:58.

yourself and your family to it. How is everyone enjoying the

:34:58.:35:05.

experience? The family love the horses and it is in our history.

:35:05.:35:10.

Ascot has been a good year. We are happy about that and hopefully many

:35:10.:35:13.

to come. You have changed the ownership to

:35:13.:35:16.

involve your brothers more? Yes, the family are here today. My two

:35:16.:35:25.

other brothers are here. So it is nice to have them running in the

:35:25.:35:29.

family colours. For us, it has got to be the family colours.

:35:29.:35:33.

Why British racing? Why not America, Australia or France? Because this

:35:33.:35:37.

is the best racing in the world. There is no doubt about that. I

:35:38.:35:42.

love the surface. We have some in America, but most of them are here

:35:42.:35:46.

and in Ireland. We are thrilled that you have got a

:35:46.:35:49.

Royal Ascot winner on the board and hopefully more to come.

:35:49.:35:59.
:35:59.:36:07.

is Havane Smoker. Flashpoint heading down early. Willie, you are

:36:07.:36:12.

seeing horses you really like. It won the Coventry Stakes last year

:36:12.:36:17.

as a two-year-old. He lost his form a bit. If he comes

:36:17.:36:23.

back to, he had a wind problem and he has had an operation on his wind

:36:23.:36:28.

so maybe if that is a success, this guy will take a lot of beating

:36:28.:36:35.

because go back to his Coventry form, he was talked as Canford

:36:35.:36:39.

Cliffs. He was a super horse last year when

:36:39.:36:43.

he won the coffin Coventry Stakes. A lot of people thought he would be

:36:43.:36:48.

a similar horse to Canford Cliffs. He breathing problems. If it is a

:36:48.:36:51.

success, he will run a big race today.

:36:51.:36:55.

And we saw Havane Smoker on the way down to the start. I know you like

:36:55.:36:58.

the French horse? It is a good looking colt. It is full of muscle.

:36:58.:37:07.

This is a seven furlong race. It is like a sprint race. So it is a

:37:07.:37:12.

specialist, it is for specialist type horses with a lot of speed and

:37:12.:37:16.

stamina and you can sometimes get horses who don't stay the mile or

:37:16.:37:22.

who are not quick enough. Seven, this race, the Jersey Stakes is for

:37:22.:37:27.

them. I would think that the French horse as we were looking at, he

:37:27.:37:33.

looks like a sprinter because he was all muscle, big shoulder and a

:37:33.:37:38.

big back side. Richard Hannon won the opening race

:37:38.:37:42.

yesterday with Canford Cliffs which was queue for celebrations I think.

:37:42.:37:50.

Yeah, we had a great time especially to beat beat Goldikova

:37:50.:37:56.

and everyone is delighted. Even the yards in the lad, most of those are

:37:56.:38:00.

Indians and they don't drink. You can enjoy without alcohol, you

:38:00.:38:03.

know! I am hoping he comes back to the

:38:03.:38:07.

form. He had a breathing operation, hasn't he? He has, yes.

:38:07.:38:14.

It was frightening him. When we looked at his larnx. It was tiny.

:38:14.:38:19.

He wasn't getting much air. He was frightening himself and he appears

:38:19.:38:23.

to be back to his best now. We took him to Kempton last week. We don't

:38:23.:38:27.

know what we are going to do from that draw. I think we might stay on

:38:27.:38:34.

the far side. He is a talented horse. You don't win a Coventry and

:38:34.:38:40.

not be very good. So realistic rather than optimistic

:38:41.:38:44.

and Codemaster looks a hard one to crack? Yes, he will be a hard one

:38:44.:38:50.

to beat. But our horse if he runs well, he will be one to look for in

:38:50.:38:56.

the coming months. Seven furlongs an unusual distance. You are

:38:56.:38:59.

looking for a bit of classic form as well. That's why I think this

:38:59.:39:03.

French horse is going to go well. Let's have a look now at runners

:39:04.:39:13.
:39:14.:39:46.

and riders for the Jersey Stakes. jump from the stalls. It is

:39:46.:39:49.

straight up the strait here at Ascot.

:39:49.:39:57.

It will be different for the Frenchman, that's for sure. Up

:39:57.:40:02.

towards the Winning Post and it is a stiff uphill climb. Seven

:40:02.:40:12.
:40:12.:40:33.

furlongs, the trip for the Jersey yesterday. Codemaster has been back

:40:33.:40:39.

nood 7-4 favourite. Everybody wants to be on it. It won't start 2-1. 7-

:40:39.:40:45.

4 is solid. 7-4 then.

:40:45.:40:48.

We have great racing coming up. Codemaster is favourite for this

:40:48.:40:52.

race. There is a few horses in it that are bigger prices than they

:40:52.:40:58.

should be. Let's talk about Codemaster? His win at Newmarket

:40:58.:41:04.

was impressive. He took a long time to get going that day. He looked

:41:04.:41:08.

green. The further he went the better he was. He looked impressive.

:41:08.:41:18.
:41:18.:41:22.

There he is with Dane O'Neill. We spoke about Havane Smoker

:41:22.:41:30.

earlier. A 9-2 chance. He travelled really good. You would say he

:41:30.:41:35.

struggled to get the mile. The drom back to -- drop back to seven

:41:35.:41:40.

furlongs could be his stride and a good price at 7-2.

:41:40.:41:45.

He is 7-2. Here is Johnny Murtagh's ride which is Western Aristocrat.

:41:45.:41:51.

This horse had a couple of runs. He won both of them. He is the won who

:41:51.:41:55.

is a 9-2 chance. We have seen a horse that's been placed in the

:41:55.:41:59.

classic, this one only had the two runs. He is on the upgrade all the

:41:59.:42:05.

time? The combination of Johnny Murtagh. He was successful

:42:05.:42:10.

Proclamation and they know what it takes to win this race.

:42:10.:42:14.

Really impressive looker. Beautiful mover and he has got to improve on

:42:14.:42:20.

his two wins, but he look as if he has got a little bit of class about

:42:20.:42:23.

him. Another one who has been in classic

:42:23.:42:29.

races is Oracle. Here he is, he was third last time behind Roderick

:42:29.:42:33.

O'Connor in the Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh. This is an easier

:42:33.:42:37.

race. It is not such high quality. The stables had winners and so has

:42:37.:42:41.

the jockey, Ryan Moore. The stables are in excellent form.

:42:41.:42:45.

They have struck up a good relationship, Ryan Moore and Aidan

:42:45.:42:48.

O'Brien. With him as well, the drop back to seven furlongs will not

:42:48.:42:56.

inconvenience him. It will help him. Splash Point, Frankie Dettori

:42:56.:43:06.
:43:06.:43:06.

riding for ga dolphin. He won in February. He has had one run

:43:06.:43:10.

subsequently and he was tenth of fourteen so he is coming back from

:43:10.:43:17.

a little bit of a break. I suppose he is perhaps taking a drop in

:43:17.:43:23.

class. You wonder about his fitness, I suppose today. Yes.

:43:23.:43:27.

He looks very well. He looks a picture and really relaxed and

:43:27.:43:31.

looks well up for the race. Like you say, on his form today, he

:43:31.:43:34.

probably has got a bit to find with one or two of these horses this

:43:34.:43:38.

this race. It is a warm Jersey this year and there are one or two

:43:38.:43:41.

horses in there with excellent chances.

:43:41.:43:51.
:43:51.:44:03.

cash. This is Majestic Myles. He takes a

:44:03.:44:08.

step up in trip. A 20-1 chance and if you are backing him, you are

:44:08.:44:11.

taking the chance which is why you are getting 20-1 that he will be

:44:11.:44:16.

able to make improvement for the step up in trip. Here is Utley who

:44:16.:44:22.

is number 9 on the cards. William Buick rides this. He had plenty of

:44:22.:44:26.

chance to say win good races. This is his fifth and he hasn't managed

:44:26.:44:32.

to get his head in front. He is well travelled. He has been here,

:44:32.:44:35.

there and everywhere. He was behind Wootton Bassett, but they have got

:44:35.:44:41.

the blinkers on him today. He ran a descent fourth at Epsom, but he has

:44:41.:44:47.

got quite a bit to find. Codemaster a solid 7-4 favourite.

:44:47.:44:57.
:44:57.:44:58.

Let's go up to the top of the Jersey. Only three to go forward

:44:58.:45:06.

now and we see Splash Point coming forward now in company with

:45:06.:45:16.
:45:16.:45:17.

Codemaster and that will only leave Havane Smoker. The jockey has been

:45:18.:45:21.

reunited with this colt. It has been a long absence. The last time

:45:21.:45:26.

he rode him was last September. He moves in. Set to go. Ready for the

:45:26.:45:34.

Jersey. Racing. A good even, dispatch too. Quickly

:45:34.:45:38.

away. Up there too is Majestic Myles and just slotting in behind

:45:38.:45:46.

them is Oracle in the purple jacket. Codemaster on the near side is two

:45:46.:45:51.

lengths away is Splash Point. Out the back is Western Aristocrat and

:45:51.:45:58.

being ridden patiently at the rear is Havane Smoker. Unsettling Utley

:45:58.:46:06.

charged away from them. Utley in front. From Strong Suit. A length

:46:06.:46:10.

further back, Oracle travelling on the outside of Codemaster who is

:46:10.:46:14.

centre field. Splash Point is further back and then Western

:46:14.:46:17.

Aristocrat and Havane Smoker. He is really stretching them Utley as

:46:17.:46:20.

they race on to the course proper now. Two-and-a-half furlongs to go.

:46:20.:46:25.

He is out in front by four to five lengths, Utley and he is going for

:46:25.:46:30.

home. Strong Suit is doing the donkey work followed by Splash

:46:30.:46:36.

Point then coming is Oracle and also Codemaster. Racing up with

:46:36.:46:41.

over a furlong to go and Strong Suit has raced through to take it

:46:41.:46:45.

from Oracle. Battling away is Codemaster and Splash Point on the

:46:45.:46:53.

far side. But it is Strong Suit. He has rejupnated. He is back in the

:46:53.:46:58.

Winner's Enclosure at Ascot. Codemaster is second. Third,

:46:58.:47:05.

Western Aristocrat. And further back then is Majestic Myles. Splash

:47:05.:47:10.

Point behind them. Oracle one of the last with Utley and also Havane

:47:10.:47:18.

Smoker. Strong Suit at 11-1. The the Coventry Stakes winner last

:47:18.:47:24.

year. His form went off. You heard Richard Hannon Junior telling us

:47:24.:47:28.

about the breathing operation. Strong Suit has won the Jersey for

:47:28.:47:34.

hitch ard Hughes. In second is Codemaster. In third is Western

:47:34.:47:44.
:47:44.:47:46.

Aristocrat. Fourth, Oracle. In fifth, Splash Point. In sixth is

:47:46.:47:50.

Sikeeb. Disappointing Havane Smoker and Utley who took them along at a

:47:50.:47:58.

very fast pace has finished last. So the winner is Strong Suit owned

:47:58.:48:03.

by Mrs Julie Wood and train by Mr Richard Hannon and ridden by

:48:03.:48:07.

Richard Hughes. Yesterday, the opening race going to this

:48:07.:48:10.

combination, the Hannon Hughes combination and today they start

:48:11.:48:15.

proceedings in the same manner with a winner. There they are, son and

:48:15.:48:20.

father. Father and son. Richard Hannon senior. There he is.

:48:20.:48:25.

And he will be elated by this victory. Second is Codemaster.

:48:25.:48:28.

Third is Number Ten, Western Aristocrat and fourth is Oracle.

:48:28.:48:36.

Let's have a check on the result of the first race. Strong Suit 11-1.

:48:36.:48:40.

Codemaster 15-8 favourite and Western Aristocrat 9-2, you can't

:48:40.:48:50.
:48:50.:48:51.

will do when he gets back in the jockey room will grab that golden

:48:51.:48:56.

arm band to say I am the leading jockey. He know that is Utley is

:48:56.:49:03.

going too fast, but if he keeps tabs on that leader. Codemaster has

:49:03.:49:08.

run very well and done little wrong. A horse that hasn't shown his best

:49:08.:49:12.

form is Havane Smoker who pulled too hard early on and ruin his

:49:13.:49:19.

chances. Look at Strong Suit stretch and this is where the

:49:19.:49:21.

breathing operation was going to work or not. Would the horse be

:49:21.:49:27.

scared when he went for it? Well, he is not, because he can breathe.

:49:27.:49:32.

When he won the Coventry, he was spoken in the same view as Canford

:49:32.:49:37.

Cliffs and we have seen what he did yesterday. Now this horse obviously

:49:37.:49:41.

his wind operation is a success, but what we saw there was a master

:49:41.:49:45.

at work. Richard Hughes, who normally gets his horses out the

:49:45.:49:51.

back and settles them, but today he saw the opportunity there of a nice

:49:51.:49:55.

leap from William Buick and he sat second, sat nice and quiet on his

:49:55.:49:59.

horse, let the other horse come back to him without asking his

:49:59.:50:03.

horse and when he got to the furlong-and-a-half, no other horse

:50:03.:50:10.

had shown its head at his elbow so he said, "let's go." There you saw

:50:10.:50:14.

the result. His horse picked up for him and won nicely indeed. A master

:50:14.:50:17.

at work. You saw a shot of Richard Hannon

:50:17.:50:22.

who last year for the first time in his career was leading trainer at

:50:22.:50:28.

at Royal Ascot. He is Richard Hughes' father-in-law. A great team

:50:28.:50:32.

they make. They have a wonderful time with their owners. They make

:50:32.:50:36.

sure they enjoy life. It is easier to enjoy it when you are winning

:50:36.:50:44.

and they are coming into the Winner's Enclosure at Royal Ascot.

:50:44.:50:50.

Richard Hughes delighted. Julie Wood congratulating him as he comes

:50:50.:51:00.
:51:00.:51:01.

back into the Winner's Enclosure. The winning distance a half neck.

:51:01.:51:08.

It is 1.5 seconds outside Rainfall's record. Strong Suit a

:51:08.:51:15.

big performance because he was giving a big weight. He carried 9.6.

:51:15.:51:20.

This colt. What will interest breeders and I'm sure Willie will

:51:20.:51:24.

have a comment because he has his own stud, I am right, I think

:51:24.:51:32.

Willie in thinking that Strong Suit is a horse who is completely

:51:32.:51:37.

without any Northern Dancer blood in him which will make him an

:51:37.:51:42.

attractive outcross. Before we ask Willie, here is the trainer.

:51:42.:51:47.

A very successful and satisfying start to day two particularly

:51:47.:51:50.

because this horse hadn't been showing his best. You gave him the

:51:51.:51:53.

breathing operation. When did he start showing he might have that

:51:53.:52:02.

problem? You never had a horse going past you. But Hughes said he

:52:02.:52:06.

was gulping pulling up and we put the overhead camera on him and you

:52:06.:52:10.

could see he was closing up, couldn't we? We took him to Kempton

:52:10.:52:14.

the other day with Canford Cliffs and he worked brilliant.

:52:15.:52:21.

Richard, can you explain to us what difference it makes having a horse

:52:21.:52:26.

who can breathe? Well, I knew how good he was in the Coventry. He did

:52:26.:52:32.

it in Ireland last year. He was like someone shot him and then we

:52:32.:52:37.

were scratching our head and he never seemed the same. He got the

:52:37.:52:43.

wobbles with me in the Greenham and we got the camera on him and that

:52:43.:52:48.

revealed the problem. They have done a great job who operated.

:52:48.:52:53.

Utley has gone a cracking gallop and you travelled beautifully?

:52:53.:52:58.

That's him flying again. He couldn't do that when his breathing

:52:58.:53:01.

was annoying him. Snoot further he went -- The the

:53:01.:53:08.

further he went the more his throat was closing. It frighten the horse.

:53:08.:53:14.

-- it frightened his horse. Richard, you have to go off. After

:53:14.:53:20.

he won the Coventry Stakes, would you have exciting targets for him,

:53:20.:53:28.

possibly take on Canford Cliffs? has got a 5lb penalty. He has done

:53:28.:53:32.

a good job of that. Where you consider six and a mile?

:53:32.:53:42.
:53:42.:53:45.

A mile wouldn't worry him. Wins the Jersey Stakes. Second was

:53:45.:53:50.

Codemaster and third, Western Aristocrat. The bookmakers dodged a

:53:50.:53:53.

bullet there. Yes, I thought Codemaster was a

:53:53.:54:03.
:54:03.:54:04.

winner. But Richard Hughes was 10-1 before the week started to be top

:54:04.:54:14.

top jockey. The horse he is riding in the last race is a favourite.

:54:14.:54:18.

I will highlight the one, two, three, four. The one you need to

:54:18.:54:24.

watch is Havane Smoker who takes too strong a hold. He won't settle.

:54:24.:54:28.

The French horse, they normally race at a slower gallop and speed

:54:28.:54:34.

up. This has been a strong gallop and he will not gallop.

:54:34.:54:37.

He sets a strong pace early on. If Havane Smoker was going to settle,

:54:37.:54:42.

it was today. As As soon as the gates opened, he wanted to get the

:54:43.:54:47.

horse switched off. He did get him switched off, but he gave a lot of

:54:47.:54:50.

ground away. He got him right at the back of the

:54:50.:54:55.

field in an attempt to get his racing evenly. He hasn't picked up

:54:55.:54:59.

by the end of the race. Let's look at Western Aristocrat. This is a

:54:59.:55:04.

horse who only had two runs before today. Johnny Murtagh takes time at

:55:04.:55:08.

this class of race to find his stride, but he is staying on really

:55:09.:55:13.

well. At this level you expect them to go fast early on and that they

:55:13.:55:17.

did. Western Aristocrat just struggled with the early pace, but

:55:17.:55:21.

once one or two horses started to come back to him and he popped

:55:21.:55:24.

himself into gear, he was the one coming home the best of all.

:55:24.:55:29.

He is a bigger horse thant others. -- than the others. He is going to

:55:29.:55:33.

get better, isn't he? Yes. I think we will see him over a mile next

:55:33.:55:36.

time. We could well see him in the

:55:36.:55:40.

Winner's Enclosure. The winning time 0.16 seconds faster than the

:55:40.:55:50.
:55:50.:55:56.

average time here. They have gone Stakes is being made by Bryan Ferry

:55:56.:56:04.

and very much the 80s icon of glamour and the new romantics and

:56:04.:56:08.

all of that. Well, going back to the 70s. Julie Wood, the winning

:56:08.:56:13.

owner. A thrill for her and Richard Hannon. I was saying how he managed

:56:13.:56:17.

to become leading trainer here at Royal Ascot for the first time in

:56:17.:56:23.

his career. He wanted Richard Hughes to be leading jockey, but

:56:23.:56:28.

Hughesy got col lard by Ryan Moore. So Hughesy is desperate to do it

:56:28.:56:34.

this time. He is a beautiful jockey, tall and elegant and a wonderful

:56:34.:56:42.

horseman. I loved the way he rode Strong Suit. He put both hands on

:56:42.:56:46.

the reigns and kept him straight and filled him with confidence.

:56:46.:56:49.

All the young kids up and down the country should be looking at that

:56:49.:56:53.

ride. And that's what you want to be copying.

:56:53.:57:03.
:57:03.:57:09.

The breathing point. McVellon. Northern Dancer was a Canadian bred

:57:09.:57:13.

horse. A lot of the top horses that you see aroundted world -- around

:57:13.:57:23.
:57:23.:57:24.

the world... He is the granddaddy of nearly everything.

:57:24.:57:32.

I am certain that one horse had something to do with this mare. I

:57:32.:57:40.

should have remembered. You can't remember everything. The

:57:40.:57:44.

jockey reporting that Havane Smoker was feeling the effects of his last.

:57:44.:57:52.

Form doesn't always read true. He is built like a sprinter. He

:57:52.:57:55.

looks like a sprinter and what we saw, he is a sprinter.

:57:55.:58:05.
:58:05.:58:06.

The win picking up and the -- the wind picking up. Henry Candy will

:58:07.:58:13.

have to wait for a win. Yesterday, we saw the newly knighted Sir Henry

:58:13.:58:19.

Cecil extend his ril Ascot -- Royal Ascot winning streak to 72. Here he

:58:19.:58:28.

is giving instructions. He has two runners in the next race.

:58:28.:58:33.

He is joking around there and talking about the winner he rode

:58:33.:58:36.

yesterday and the fact that Eddie came in and said, "I didn't go as

:58:36.:58:42.

early as Tom.". You know what else he said, it was a ride he wasn't

:58:42.:58:51.

supposed to have. And everybody is shouting at him, "Well done,

:58:51.:58:56.

Kieron.". Henry Cecil remains positive despite under going

:58:56.:59:00.

treatment for stomach cancer. Last week, I went to Newmarket to sit in

:59:00.:59:10.
:59:10.:59:13.

the garden with Henry and discuss Have we started? Yes.

:59:13.:59:17.

Start again. Start again. Start again.

:59:17.:59:22.

The three things a trainer should be, one is be patient. And two is

:59:22.:59:25.

be patient and three is be patient. Our staff in the last year-and-a-

:59:25.:59:29.

half has been, we are building it up again, because we went down to

:59:29.:59:33.

30 odd horses, you know for about four or five years.

:59:33.:59:37.

You are all on camera so make sure you smile!

:59:37.:59:39.

Just say good morning as you go past.

:59:39.:59:43.

When you went down to so few horses, was that one of the hard things

:59:43.:59:47.

about it actually having to lay off staff? When a stable is thriving

:59:47.:59:52.

and going very well and winning good races, people want to be in it.

:59:52.:59:58.

When it is winning twelve or fourteen races a year and no

:59:58.:00:02.

winners at Royal Ascot, maybe financially they think they would

:00:02.:00:06.

be better off somewhere else. Did you ever lose faith in

:00:06.:00:16.
:00:16.:00:20.

I got to a stage with everything in my life. The death of my brother

:00:20.:00:25.

and financial things and divorces and I never really thought that I -

:00:25.:00:32.

that was the end of me. I can't be an also-ran. I have children. I

:00:32.:00:37.

would like to think they look up to me. I don't want to be that

:00:38.:00:43.

pathetic and when I hear people on the heath saying there's heny Cecil

:00:43.:00:46.

over there, he should have retired years ago, those sort of things

:00:46.:00:51.

hurt me and I have always been competitive. I thought if I was

:00:51.:00:55.

champion trainer nobody could say I was useless and with the help of

:00:55.:01:01.

Jane and putting the pieces back together again we are getting back

:01:01.:01:11.
:01:11.:01:13.

again. When did you first start to feel you are on the bridle and

:01:13.:01:19.

running again? I suppose about four years ago, five years ago. Then I

:01:19.:01:25.

was taken ill, which sort of made it more difficult. When you have

:01:25.:01:32.

tried to be very positive and get back there and you can hardly walk

:01:32.:01:36.

with chemotherapy then you don't feel quite so good, but I was

:01:36.:01:45.

determined to get on top of everything. The incredible come-

:01:45.:01:49.

back king, Henry Cecil. Hip, hip. When you've had chemotherapy and

:01:49.:01:59.

you are not feeling great, you know, you know you don't look very well.

:01:59.:02:04.

Actually, they are very kind in the Jockey Club. They did a portrait of

:02:04.:02:09.

me and it's in the rooms and it's very nice and this nice woman

:02:09.:02:16.

painted me and I just had a really big bout of the chemotherapy and I

:02:16.:02:20.

felt awful and I looked awful. It makes me look as if I've got one

:02:20.:02:25.

day to live, but it's a very good painting. I do look ill. She has

:02:25.:02:33.

painted me as I was. But it's quite funny that we have the likes of Sir

:02:33.:02:43.
:02:43.:02:45.

Reginald with the wax moustache and Henry Cecil lolling in a chair. The

:02:45.:02:50.

fillies love them. Rather than a sugar lump. Life has to be enjoyed.

:02:50.:02:54.

On the heath we Take The Micky out of each other. All the trainers get

:02:54.:02:59.

on well and they treat me as a bit of a joke and I'm taking the Mickey

:02:59.:03:07.

out of them. It's like a cocktail party, but without the drink.

:03:07.:03:12.

is the possibility of winning the Trainers' Championship and it would

:03:12.:03:18.

be the eleventh title for you. very open. I've got a chance. We'll

:03:18.:03:24.

see how we go. I still am pretty small minded and I look at the list

:03:24.:03:29.

and I think I've gone up one or two places. As long as we are up near

:03:29.:03:34.

the top, in the top four or five, then one has to be very pleased and

:03:34.:03:38.

anything better than that would be a bonus and I shall be delighted.

:03:38.:03:41.

Here's Frankel here. Get the fillies out of the way please,

:03:41.:03:47.

quick. I do it all in my head. I can't work computers and I can't

:03:47.:03:51.

work the mobile telephone. I've given it to Jane, because I don't

:03:51.:03:57.

know how to send a message. I'm quite old-fashioned. How important

:03:57.:04:01.

has Jane been in keeping you concentrated on track and keeping

:04:01.:04:06.

you podsive about the training? Jane is a great -- positive about

:04:06.:04:10.

the training? Jane is a great help and very good with the PR. My PR

:04:10.:04:13.

used to be terrible. Getting much better now and she looks after me

:04:13.:04:20.

so well. I had beetroot juice for breakfast and I'm not allowed this

:04:20.:04:24.

and sugar and I'm not allowed cakes and things. She does understand

:04:24.:04:33.

horses too. Prince Khalid is a very private man and he likes giving

:04:33.:04:39.

interviews less than you do. How supportive is he and as an owner?

:04:39.:04:42.

Fantastic owner. I regard him as a very good friend. He's been a very

:04:42.:04:45.

good friend to me through all my problems and everything. He has

:04:45.:04:48.

always been there for me. He's very knowledgeable and he loves the

:04:48.:04:55.

horses and the broding. -- breeding. I'm very, very lucky to have him. I

:04:55.:05:04.

have told him. I have said, "If you decide you've had enough of me then

:05:04.:05:10.

it's time I should go." You would stop training? Yeah. Definitely.

:05:10.:05:13.

Quite a strong line that, that he would strop training if the prince

:05:13.:05:17.

stopped supporting him. If he stopped believing in him then Henry

:05:17.:05:21.

Cecil would walk away, but right at this moment in time he's fifth in

:05:21.:05:24.

the trainers' championship and you can see the jockeys watching and

:05:24.:05:29.

listening to Henry. It's so rare to hear a trainer to have the time to

:05:29.:05:32.

hear from him in depth and understand what they're like as a

:05:32.:05:36.

person and that's why people love Henry Cecil, because they feel that

:05:36.:05:42.

they know him. They support him and they know he's had a hard time and

:05:42.:05:46.

tough ride. He's had a tough time with illness and when he lost a lot

:05:46.:05:53.

of horses and he was used to training 100 horses and more and

:05:53.:05:57.

every year classic horses and good horses and all of a sudden, bang,

:05:57.:06:01.

he's in bad times and he had about three years of struggling, but he's

:06:01.:06:07.

back now. With all the best horses in the world again. There is a

:06:07.:06:11.

genuine chance, particularly if the likes of Frankel keep winning, that

:06:11.:06:15.

he could be champion trainer. Richard Hannon is out in front and

:06:15.:06:20.

then it's open, but Henry is up to fifth from eighth, so he'll have

:06:20.:06:23.

enjoyed that. It was ing in about - - interesting about the prince.

:06:23.:06:28.

He's one of the biggest breeders in the world and he produces very good

:06:28.:06:33.

horses. If Henry can keep getting possibly the pick of them or some

:06:33.:06:37.

of the best ones, you know, why not keep going training? You are going

:06:37.:06:43.

to have classic horses, good horses every year. A quick correction,

:06:43.:06:53.
:06:53.:06:54.

just a lick one. Rahee is from Blushing Groom. I did get that

:06:54.:06:58.

wrong. Another look at the fashion with Suzie. Thank you very much.

:06:58.:07:01.

I've got Bryan Ferry here, who was earlier presenting one of the

:07:01.:07:06.

trophies. It's very nice to see you here.. You are a fan of the horses?

:07:06.:07:11.

I used to come a fair bit, racing, in my early days and I haven't been

:07:11.:07:19.

to Ascot for a long time, about 20 years. It has changed. You are in

:07:19.:07:24.

between tours. You toured with Roxy Music last year and earlier -

:07:24.:07:29.

went to Australia and did dates in England too. Now I'm going around

:07:29.:07:34.

Europe and then later in the year I go to America, so it's very busy. I

:07:34.:07:40.

was in inStan bull last week and I'm seeing all -- in Istanbul last

:07:40.:07:46.

week and I'm seeing all the great places. We have a big band and it's

:07:46.:07:53.

fun. I've got a day off. It's a lovely place. With obviously the

:07:53.:07:57.

legacy of music that you have brought us, you have style and

:07:57.:08:01.

fashion and you've always been very much into fashion, or it seems from

:08:01.:08:05.

the outside. Where does that come from? I don't know. I was always a

:08:05.:08:15.
:08:15.:08:21.

big fan of movies and the stars like Cary Grant and people like him.

:08:21.:08:24.

That's my early period. Fashion has always been quite interesting. I

:08:24.:08:29.

studied art when I was college. I've always been into how things

:08:29.:08:34.

look and whether it's a horse or building or a suit or whatever, you

:08:34.:08:41.

get interested in how things are designed. It's nice to be at Ascot,

:08:41.:08:45.

where everybody makes an effort, dressing up and stuff. Everybody is

:08:45.:08:48.

dressed beautifully. Speaking of which, I mentioned to you earlier,

:08:48.:08:55.

we have Anthony Price who - glad you mentioned him. He's a

:08:55.:09:00.

genius designer and a very old friend of mine. He did a lot of my

:09:00.:09:04.

early stuff. I believe he has made some of the Duran Duran stuff.

:09:04.:09:09.

Which cover did he do for you? first five or six. Especially the

:09:09.:09:18.

first one, which was em -- was very famous. You are looking very dapper

:09:18.:09:24.

and debonaire. Thank you for speaking to us. If we wander over,

:09:24.:09:28.

he's right, there are fabulous looks and we can look at some of

:09:28.:09:35.

the images we've been seeing. lovely lady is striking. I

:09:35.:09:42.

absolutely adore this look. Now, this is a couple from Argentina and

:09:42.:09:49.

I liked the whole way he is taller, but she has a lovely clean look. A

:09:49.:09:57.

lot of butterflies this year and if you look closer, there are Guinea

:09:57.:10:06.

foul feathers there too -- fowl feathers there too. This is a

:10:06.:10:10.

mature lady. I love this look. She carries it off with style elegance

:10:10.:10:16.

and that classic look. Very quirky hat here. This is a beautiful wave.

:10:16.:10:24.

I just love the detail. She matched it down to the dress. This is lady

:10:25.:10:33.

Amethyst feather and you loved this flapper dress. Very cute. When it

:10:33.:10:39.

moves, just look at the whole texture of that fabric. It's nice

:10:39.:10:42.

to wear something a little different, but staying within the

:10:42.:10:46.

etiquette. No, it's really important that. At the end of the

:10:46.:10:49.

day, summer is about enjoying yourself too. Today is that

:10:49.:10:53.

celebration at Ascot. I love it It's really great. See you in a

:10:53.:11:03.
:11:03.:11:05.

while. We are in the paddock, looking at the horses here. Frankie

:11:05.:11:11.

Dettori's mount is just getting a little on her toes. She left

:11:11.:11:21.
:11:21.:11:24.

earlier than a few of them. Sajjhaa is playing up. The other Godolphin

:11:24.:11:29.

runner is still in the paddock. We had David Simcock a few moments ago

:11:29.:11:36.

and his horse is making her way out. Let's look at some of them going

:11:36.:11:42.

out. This is number five, First City. This is David Simcock's and

:11:42.:11:47.

the one behind is I'm A Dreamer, number seven. She is on her way out.

:11:47.:11:51.

The trainer, David Simcock, who I promise to speak to, has

:11:51.:11:55.

disappeared out of my vision. A fast-improving filly. Hasn't got

:11:55.:12:02.

too much to find. Probably David thinks she is capable. Over to Jim

:12:02.:12:07.

to get runners and riders. We had a good view of Sajjhaa. She really

:12:07.:12:11.

was whipping around and very, very anxious, that is why she was

:12:11.:12:16.

mounted out on the course. There she is. She's more relaxed now than

:12:16.:12:19.

she was earlier and she is striding out nicely. Look at her again.

:12:19.:12:27.

There she is. Frankie, just for a couple of seconds, he's had to use

:12:27.:12:33.

all his balance and experience here. She has settled down now. There she

:12:33.:12:38.

is live. She is on her way down to post. Let's check the runners and

:12:38.:12:48.
:12:48.:12:48.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds

:12:48.:13:32.

straight course. As you can see, slightly shorter than the first

:13:33.:13:37.

race. It's a demanding course. In the first race, they were racing

:13:37.:13:40.

basically up the middle. This is what we expect once again here.

:13:40.:13:44.

They'll group up, I think and if anything, drift towards the left,

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:13:57.

as we look at it here. One mile, the distance for the race.

:13:57.:14:03.

promised, I have David Simcock. He has two runners. First City and I'm

:14:03.:14:07.

A Dreamer. I'm A Dreamer, not the top-rated horse, but not far off

:14:07.:14:11.

and she is improving. How confident are you about her chances today?

:14:11.:14:14.

don't know whether you can be confident at Royal Ascot, but we

:14:14.:14:18.

have brought her here in really good order. She's improved from

:14:18.:14:22.

three to four. Big, imposing filly and we are delighted with her. She

:14:22.:14:28.

won well at Newmarket. We were chatting the other day and you were

:14:28.:14:30.

saying about the weather and wanting it to be dry. Conditions

:14:30.:14:33.

dry and fast enough out there for you? Very much so. I don't think

:14:33.:14:38.

there will be any excuses. We have had three good dry days now.

:14:38.:14:43.

Conditions will be fine. No problem. What about First City, after the

:14:43.:14:48.

run at Epsom? Career best for her. There was no race for six weeks

:14:48.:14:52.

after Epsom, so she is entitled to take her chance. They won't

:14:52.:14:57.

disgrace herself, but I would be surprised if she was good enough to

:14:57.:15:01.

win. Dream Ahead ran yesterday after a long layoff since a two-

:15:01.:15:05.

year-old. How pleased were you with that and what would be the plans?

:15:05.:15:08.

Absolutely delighted with him. He ran a great race. Came three wide

:15:08.:15:15.

and made up a lot of ground. Very tired at the end. If I was totally

:15:15.:15:20.

honest, it didn't look like he stayed. Real replan now and we'll

:15:20.:15:26.

look at -- we'll replan now and look at seven furlongs. Come on

:15:26.:15:30.

plenty and when he sees soft ground he'll be a force to be reckoned

:15:30.:15:40.
:15:40.:16:01.

Dreamer. It's now 7-2. For me, I'm A Dreamer is the strongest of the

:16:01.:16:10.

front two. Jacqueline Quest coming down with the green cap for Sir

:16:10.:16:14.

Henry Cecil. Two runners in this race. Hello. Going for a quick trip

:16:14.:16:20.

around the course there. Jacqueline Quest first-past-the-post and then

:16:20.:16:27.

lost it in the stewards' room. That is Seta. Trained by Luca Cumani.

:16:27.:16:33.

Kieren Fallon missed a wen -- winner yesterday. Could he do it

:16:34.:16:37.

today on this filly? He's always believed in her. She looked

:16:37.:16:42.

impressive at Goodwood last time. She seems to always do it in listed

:16:42.:16:46.

and company. Once she gets into the big girls and the group ones, she

:16:46.:16:53.

seems to fail, so she is falling in between the two. This is a group

:16:53.:16:58.

two, so she will have to slightly improve for me to win this, but she

:16:58.:17:03.

is a talented filly. They've always liked her. Luca Cumani, when she

:17:03.:17:07.

won as a two-year-old on the July Course, she looked a superstar at

:17:07.:17:12.

that stage, but she hasn't quite got to the top. She is still a very

:17:12.:17:16.

good filly and I lovely filly to take back to the paddocks. Lovely

:17:16.:17:24.

to look at. A lot of people will think she's so pretty with the mane

:17:24.:17:32.

and tale and pale chestnut. would look good in the winners'

:17:32.:17:37.

enclosure. Richard Hughes has come in the enclosure on Strong Suit and

:17:37.:17:43.

he's on board with Music Show and he has the golden armband on. He's

:17:43.:17:49.

going to try to stay out in front. Music Show has definite chances of

:17:49.:17:53.

getting placed. She hasn't got the beatings of Sajjhaa. Sajjhaa has

:17:53.:17:58.

got the better of her on form. is a group one winner. She is. She

:17:58.:18:03.

is a tough little filly and obviously she will run a big race

:18:03.:18:08.

again. The form suggests she'll be there abouts. She has won -- if you

:18:08.:18:13.

were backing her, I wouldn't put you off. Big and strong. Massive

:18:13.:18:19.

muscular behind. She has got a good fellow on top. Hughesy, yeah.

:18:19.:18:25.

love him. I do. He's a great horseman. He is. He comes from a

:18:26.:18:30.

real, Irish National hunt family. We have Lolly For Dolly from

:18:30.:18:36.

Ireland. Wayne Lordan. You said when she walked past, blinkers, I

:18:36.:18:41.

don't like that. Not in group races. I like them for horses in handicaps,

:18:41.:18:46.

but it's - when they put them on a horse they have obviously done

:18:46.:18:49.

something or they haven't come up to expectations and there's a

:18:49.:18:58.

jockey trying to get fit there. Who is that? Come Queally. This is

:18:58.:19:04.

interesting. Tom Queally is riding this filly, who on her form, he

:19:04.:19:08.

doesn't look that great. This is why he's got off and is running

:19:08.:19:11.

alongside. She got spooked on the way down to the start. She looking

:19:11.:19:17.

at the rails that are down on the ground there. What has happened? He

:19:17.:19:23.

didn't fall off. He lost the stirrup. The saddle has slipped. It

:19:23.:19:27.

has gone down one side. All the weight went on one side and the

:19:27.:19:37.

saddle has slipped. I can see that now. This is interesting. Tom,

:19:37.:19:43.

stable jockey to Sir Henry Cecil, he is riding this filly instead.

:19:43.:19:48.

you know something I learnt when I was with him, he uses the hoods and

:19:48.:19:52.

he gets them from Czechoslovakia and he uses the hoods a long from

:19:52.:19:55.

his fillies and he says they make all the difference in the world.

:19:55.:19:59.

Does he stuff their ears? necessarily. He said the covering

:19:59.:20:05.

on the ears will do that for them, but he says it settles down tricky

:20:05.:20:08.

fillies, but he uses them at home. That's interesting, because the

:20:08.:20:13.

first time I really saw this was in Japan. The Japanese, they race a

:20:13.:20:19.

lot of their horses in hoods. Obviously, for - they get 150,000

:20:19.:20:22.

people going to their big meetings so there's a lot of noise, so

:20:22.:20:32.
:20:32.:20:32.

possibly that is the reason. Good idea. We spoke to Sheikh Fahad

:20:32.:20:36.

earlier, but here are the colours of his company, carried by Dever

:20:37.:20:43.

Dream. Eddie Ahern is a good jockey here at Royal Ascot. Or anywhere,

:20:43.:20:50.

actually. Funny guy. He is very funny. He's one of those jockeys

:20:50.:20:55.

that everybody loves, because he's a funny guy and he's so mild and

:20:55.:21:02.

meek and - but when he gets on top of a horse he becomes a monster,

:21:02.:21:09.

because he's a fantastic jockey and he is always in tune with the horse.

:21:09.:21:13.

He's a real horseman. Of course, he wins that cross-country race every

:21:13.:21:23.
:21:23.:21:25.

now and again and so he's good. back on board of Chachamaidee. For

:21:25.:21:28.

William Haggas, he's hoping with the horse that Eddie Ahern rides,

:21:28.:21:33.

Dever Dream, well he's had to pull out Furry and Green Destiny who was

:21:33.:21:38.

favourite, also doesn't run. This filly could - I would think each-

:21:38.:21:48.
:21:48.:22:00.

favourite. That's where the money is. But there's a bet from

:22:00.:22:10.
:22:10.:22:15.

Ladbrokes, �15,000 at 16-1 for Anna Salai. Big money. Runners to the

:22:15.:22:22.

post. What, Kevin, is Eddie doing there? Is he playing noughts and

:22:22.:22:26.

crosses? It looks that way. I think he's playing up to her a little. I

:22:26.:22:32.

haven't a clue what he's doing. know the first job when he gets

:22:32.:22:38.

back, don't you? Definitely. has a good chance. Eye-catching run

:22:38.:22:43.

from her last time at Lingfield about a month ago. She hasn't, as

:22:43.:22:48.

yet, won over this trip of a mile, but comes from a good stable. She

:22:48.:22:53.

is an improving filly. That's right. Doesn't get the clearest of the

:22:53.:23:00.

runs. She will be better for that. He hasn't won at a mile. I'm A

:23:00.:23:04.

Dreamer has won three of the four races at this trip and came back

:23:04.:23:08.

over nine furlongs on her debut. She is another one that is very

:23:08.:23:13.

progressive. She is a lovely looking filly. Plenty of scope. I

:23:13.:23:17.

love the way she won at Newmarket. She dominated throughout. Len

:23:17.:23:25.

thened away. Definite class about her. We'll look at Sajjhaa. We saw

:23:25.:23:30.

her going down earlier on. Went ahid with Frankie Dettori. She has

:23:30.:23:34.

-- ahead with Frankie Dettori. She has already had a run where she was

:23:34.:23:43.

runner up to Midday. Sajjhaa, one thing I did notice, she is very big.

:23:43.:23:47.

She is a huge filly and Frankie was keen to get her out there on the

:23:47.:23:51.

track and get her going. Once you saw her cantering down she was fine.

:23:52.:23:55.

She was edgy and anticipating the race, but she is in the stalls

:23:55.:24:00.

great and obviously the horse they'll all got to beat. She has

:24:00.:24:05.

already gone in. Six of the nine jockeys in the race said the ground

:24:05.:24:10.

is absolutely perfect. There is no excuse for the horses or any of the

:24:10.:24:13.

horses not performing on the conditions. There are about three

:24:13.:24:23.

to load. Over to Jim. Loading up here. There's Tom Queally. This is

:24:23.:24:26.

a less stressful task than yesterday, when he was in the

:24:26.:24:34.

stalls on Frankel. Chachamaidee, which he rides for Sir Henry Cecil

:24:34.:24:40.

and Johnny mur far has picked up the ride -- Murtagh has picked up

:24:40.:24:46.

the ride on Jacqueline Quest. Ready. Racing. Just eased out the back,

:24:46.:24:50.

I'm A Dreamer on the near side. One of the first away is Sajjhaa. Also

:24:50.:24:54.

up there in the early stages is Field Day and they are breaking

:24:54.:24:58.

away on the nearside. Sam man Dar is coming over in company with Anna

:24:58.:25:02.

Salai. They are very handy and just behind them is Dever Dream. That is

:25:02.:25:07.

the trio on this side. The far side, you can see coming up the centre,

:25:07.:25:10.

Frankie Dettori on Sajjhaa. Just showing the way from Seta and

:25:10.:25:16.

sitting in behind them is Field Day. Chachamaidee is in that group too

:25:16.:25:22.

and frontly. -- Fontley. Then I'm A Dreamer on the far side. Lolly For

:25:22.:25:25.

Dolly is just behind them and First City held up. They start to merge

:25:25.:25:34.

the two, as they come up now to halfway. It's Shamandar and Sajjhaa.

:25:34.:25:39.

They are stride for stride. Then Dever Dream and followed Byfield

:25:39.:25:48.

day. Chachamaidee is next, followed then by Anna Salai. Further back is

:25:48.:25:53.

Lolly For Dolly and then First City. They race up now with two furlongs

:25:53.:25:58.

to travel. Frankie strikes for home on Sajjhaa. Tackled by Chachamaidee

:25:58.:26:04.

on the far side. Rainks up very easily. Takes a narrow -- ranges up

:26:04.:26:08.

very easily. Takes a narrow lead now. He starts to drift now.

:26:08.:26:17.

Chachamaidee, drifting left. Lolly For Dolly now for Ireland. Grabbing

:26:17.:26:23.

the lead. It's all over. Lolly For Dolly wins the race. Chachamaidee

:26:23.:26:28.

is second. First City third. A gap then to Sajjhaa, followed by I'm A

:26:28.:26:31.

Dreamer and Field Day behind them and further back in the field is

:26:31.:26:37.

Music Show. Fontley was there. Seta followed by Dever Dream and then

:26:37.:26:41.

out of the back is Anna Salai and Shamandar last. Lolly For Dolly is

:26:41.:26:46.

the winner. Ridden by Wayne Lordan at 11-1. Flown home up the stands

:26:46.:26:54.

rail and has got up to win well. Fozzy Stack there. Trained by the

:26:54.:27:00.

Stacks. Tommy there. Let's see them hit the line. Lolly For Dolly, what

:27:00.:27:04.

a faily. Got up to win from Chachamaidee, who went there so

:27:05.:27:09.

easily. Just didn't have that kick in the finish. Third was First City.

:27:09.:27:15.

Fourth then Sajjhaa. In fifth I'm A Dreamer, sixth Field Day, a gap

:27:15.:27:25.
:27:25.:27:25.

then to Music Show seventh, eighth Seta, ninth Fontley and tenth Dever

:27:25.:27:28.

Dream and Anna Salai and Jacqueline Quest, I'm looking down the track,

:27:28.:27:34.

she is coming past the line. She has obviously taken no part. It

:27:34.:27:39.

will be interesting to see what has happened there. We'll get the full

:27:39.:27:44.

report on her. Johnny Murtagh on board. She has come in. A good

:27:44.:27:49.

minute behind the others. We'll have a report, but there's the

:27:49.:27:55.

winner, that's Lolly For Dolly. Wayne Lordan and trained by Tommy

:27:55.:28:01.

Stack in the colours of David Keegan. Huge celebrations as the

:28:01.:28:05.

owners of this filly celebrated along with Fozzy Stack, Tommy's son,

:28:06.:28:10.

who helps out with the training, but David Keegan was leading that

:28:10.:28:14.

charge and cheering home the 11-1 winner and Lolly For Dolly, who

:28:14.:28:18.

hasn't finished out of the first two all season comes here to Royal

:28:18.:28:24.

as col and takes the race. -- Ascot and takes the race. It sounds as if

:28:24.:28:27.

the stalls with Jacqueline Quest, either there was a malfunction. No,

:28:27.:28:31.

she stood there. She planted herself. We'll show you that in a

:28:31.:28:36.

second, but look at Lolly For Dolly. Stretching out and coming past the

:28:36.:28:41.

packed grandstand here. Wayne saying, "go on, girl." The blinkers

:28:41.:28:44.

were not a negative. They helped her to the line over the mile on

:28:44.:28:50.

the straight course. If you want an illustration of what a thrill it is

:28:50.:29:00.
:29:00.:29:02.

to have a winner here, just watch this. Look at them. Fabulous scenes.

:29:02.:29:09.

Well done to all of them associated with Lolly For Dolly. Let's look at

:29:09.:29:17.

see what happened to Jacqueline Quest. Out of stall eleven. She is

:29:17.:29:24.

has done a memory. She has. The jockey's arms were wagging. Still

:29:24.:29:30.

in there. Still in there. Oh, dear. You see, you cannot make them do it

:29:30.:29:35.

if they don't want to do it. Watch this again. There you go. Blinkers.

:29:35.:29:41.

She has had them on. This is the fifth time there she is getting

:29:41.:29:45.

scrubbed along and possibly a bit lazy this filly, because they wept

:29:45.:29:48.

a nice pace there and they quickened up well and she possibly

:29:48.:29:53.

just got caught for a bit of toe, but she is picking them off slowly

:29:53.:29:56.

and picking up now. Really stretching and now in between the

:29:56.:30:05.

horses. A smack and of course Wayne Lordan has her in Top Gear and

:30:05.:30:09.

Frankie to get by and he has won this now. He has the help of the

:30:09.:30:14.

rail. Sticking to the right hand. All I have to do now is keep her

:30:14.:30:18.

going and that's exactly what he has done. Henry Cecil's filly has

:30:18.:30:28.
:30:28.:30:46.

run very well in second. She was an lolly's owner's wife is the

:30:46.:30:52.

daughter of the ex-Prime Minister of Ireland, Bertie Ahern. I know

:30:52.:30:59.

you guys thought a lot of this filly. The blinkers are the huge

:30:59.:31:02.

operation. I thought last year she didn't

:31:02.:31:07.

really kill herself and we thought to apply the blinkers.

:31:07.:31:10.

Some celebrations. Tell us about when you decided this

:31:10.:31:13.

would be the plan for her? It was always in the back of our mind to

:31:13.:31:16.

come here. David loves coming here. It was always in the back of our

:31:16.:31:22.

mind to come here. She is tough and takes a lot of work and she is the

:31:22.:31:26.

constitution of an ox. We might give her a holiday and give her a

:31:26.:31:30.

prep somewhere. Take us through your thoughts on

:31:30.:31:35.

this race. They seemed to go a good gallop and that suited her.

:31:35.:31:41.

She likes passing horses. In the Curragh, she took it up about two

:31:41.:31:45.

down. She likes passing horses. She is tough and likes a battle.

:31:45.:31:48.

feeling of a Royal winner? Brilliant.

:31:48.:31:58.
:31:58.:32:00.

Thank you. So the winner is Lolly For Dolly.

:32:00.:32:04.

Gareth, you are up for a big dividend. The bookies along here,

:32:04.:32:09.

John, you see them putting their hats up. They were cheering. They

:32:09.:32:13.

weren't cheering yesterday, but they are cheering today!

:32:13.:32:17.

Congratulations. The way the race unfolded, it seemed to be perfect

:32:17.:32:22.

for you? Yeah, we went a nice gallop. I was looking for a bit of

:32:22.:32:26.

room. She picked up and ran to the line well and she stayed well. It

:32:26.:32:30.

was nice to have the first Royal Ascot win. I'm very happy.

:32:30.:32:33.

A lot of people watching are going, "The ease of the victory was a

:32:33.:32:40.

surprising thing about it.". Yeah. I thought the rain might come

:32:40.:32:44.

sooner. I was worried the ground might be quick. She is a tough

:32:44.:32:48.

filly. Her heart is in the right place. She has done well from last

:32:48.:32:52.

year to this year. The first Royal Ascot winner, what

:32:52.:32:57.

does that feel like? It feels great. I'm delighted I got a chance to

:32:57.:32:59.

have a winner here. Well done.

:32:59.:33:07.

Thank you very much. The first Royal Ascot winner for

:33:07.:33:17.
:33:17.:33:33.

Tommy Stack because his son is representing him and Lolly and

:33:33.:33:43.
:33:43.:33:44.

Dolly living up to her name because she won plenty of lolly there.

:33:44.:33:53.

We are about to switch channels over to to BBC Two.

:33:53.:33:59.

The New Zealand born, Australian trained and now Irish. Look at him.

:33:59.:34:04.

He is a monster. He is massive. We look forward to

:34:04.:34:08.
