Nathaniel. The bird has flown and Winners for Jamie Spencer and for

:01:03.:01:06.

William Buick welcome to coverage on BBC Two. Willie Carson and

:01:06.:01:11.

myself are here and the whole team. Hello.

:01:11.:01:18.

Three more races and the final one on the Red Button. The next is the

:01:18.:01:22.

group one, four fillies over a mile. One guy hoping that he will see the

:01:22.:01:28.

belief that he has in his filly which is Martin Dwyer.

:01:28.:01:36.

Yes, Martin Dwyer missed out riding Theyskens' Theory in September and

:01:36.:01:41.

in the breeders Breeders' Cup and you picked up a nasty injury at

:01:41.:01:47.

nester. Tell us about that? I was trying to forget about that? I

:01:47.:01:51.

broke my hand and elbow. How long were you out for? Four

:01:51.:01:56.

months. It took a long time to get back because elbows are tricky.

:01:56.:02:01.

She is worth coming back for. She won at York and it was impressive.

:02:01.:02:05.

Yeah, it was a drop in grade, it was a listed race, but she did it

:02:05.:02:09.

very well. She won easily. It was a nice come back race for her.

:02:09.:02:12.

She was big and strong last year and always looked if this year she

:02:12.:02:18.

would do better. Is that fair? year she was taller than her rivals

:02:18.:02:23.

and grew and grew. She is is one for the future.

:02:23.:02:26.

What do you make of the conditions for her today? It is soft ground,

:02:26.:02:30.

but they have moved the railings so it is a fresh fresh strip there.

:02:30.:02:34.

She won on soft ground and finished third here last year on good to

:02:34.:02:38.

soft ground and I am sure she will cope with it and she has stamina

:02:38.:02:44.

and she has an excellent chance. There is the American runner More

:02:44.:02:48.

Than Real who won the Breeders' Cup on turf. Who would be the horses

:02:48.:02:52.

that you are most scared of? I was worried about the American horse

:02:52.:02:56.

until it started raining. I am not sure whether her form will stand up

:02:56.:02:59.

on a surface like this. She would never have experienced soft ground

:02:59.:03:09.

ground racing in the States, all her form is on top of the ground.

:03:09.:03:13.

The Culmore is the horse we have to beat. I have a lot of confidence in

:03:13.:03:19.

my filly and she has only a length- and-a-half to find. You have

:03:19.:03:22.

convinced me. Good luck. Thanks.

:03:22.:03:26.

More on our big race shortly. We are wandering around and having a

:03:26.:03:30.

look at the fashion, sheltering from the rain in the bar. These are

:03:30.:03:35.

some of the sights that we have seen today as we have been

:03:35.:03:40.

wandering around. It is an unusual shaped hat? She does this wonderful

:03:40.:03:45.

spin that shows the back and in millinery it is all angles, it is

:03:45.:03:51.

360 degrees. This lady has a beautiful tunic. This was a

:03:51.:03:57.

detailed and embroidered coat. Look at those rich coloursment very

:03:57.:04:00.

finished off look. I like the sophistication of this and of

:04:00.:04:05.

course, that really big wide- brimmed hat carries it off. This is

:04:05.:04:11.

not a full length tunic, it is a detailed piece as well. These boys

:04:11.:04:14.

with manners, I adored this and it is men's Day today. Look at this

:04:14.:04:19.

and the cheeky smile to go with it. I loved that and it really is

:04:19.:04:22.

showing the real spirit of what today is about. I adored that.

:04:22.:04:30.

Really having fun at cot cot. At Ascot is for everybody so we have

:04:30.:04:33.

some down to the bar to have a chat with a few of the guys and the

:04:33.:04:42.

girls down here. Louis found these lovely fellas.

:04:43.:04:50.

Are you enjoying Ascot? Loving it. The previous race, I won. I will be

:04:50.:04:55.

collecting my winnings in a bit. I might be hanging out for a bit.

:04:56.:05:01.

Is it your first time here? No, I came came for Ladies' Day last year.

:05:01.:05:08.

Where are you from? Essex. You look as if you are dispelling

:05:08.:05:17.

the myth myth "the only way is Essex.". Shut-up.

:05:17.:05:21.

Paul put a sharp look together. Tell me about the waistcoat.

:05:22.:05:26.

It is a silk waistcoat. I tried to go with the grey and the blue and

:05:26.:05:31.

keep it subtle really. You have your little accessories to match. I

:05:31.:05:37.

notice the hanky here. He matched his eyes with the outfit.

:05:37.:05:41.

He put his eyes in for the outfit this morning, the other way around!

:05:41.:05:45.

You have been here before. Do you think very much about what you are

:05:45.:05:49.

going to wear? Or pull a suit out of the wardrobe? Just keep it

:05:49.:05:53.

simple. A lot of people try to overdo the look. If you keep it

:05:53.:05:58.

simple, you can't go wrong really. This is your first time at Ascot?

:05:58.:06:02.

No, my second time. I prefer it on Ladies' Day.

:06:02.:06:11.

Why? A lot more ladies really! A bit more male oren tated.

:06:11.:06:16.

You have come on then official Gentlemans Day. What about the

:06:16.:06:21.

ladies that you are seeing? They are all lovely, yeah.

:06:21.:06:27.

I thought you said, "They all love me." I did say that, but I tried to

:06:27.:06:33.

roll in they are all lovely. Suzi is looking lovely today.

:06:34.:06:38.

us, when you come to Royal Ascot, are you here for the horses, is it

:06:38.:06:42.

a whole event for you you? It is a mixture.

:06:42.:06:46.

It is an all day day thing with your friends. There is a few birds

:06:46.:06:50.

and drinks. It is a nice day. Other than the weather, it is perfect

:06:50.:06:54.

really. The weather is is letting us down a

:06:54.:06:58.

bit. Guys, you look very dapper. You

:06:58.:07:02.

better go and pick up your betting money.

:07:02.:07:06.

You know what, there is a lady with a super hat over here. Let's run

:07:06.:07:11.

around here. I know, let's squish through. Can you come towards us,

:07:11.:07:18.

please? I adore this lady over here. We love your hat. Thank you. The

:07:18.:07:23.

hat is by a designer in York and she made it especially for me.

:07:23.:07:28.

You have gone with a lace jacket, the idea I had yesterday with the

:07:28.:07:31.

Anthony Price. It is all high street.

:07:31.:07:40.

Where is it from? Karen Millen and French Connection.

:07:40.:07:44.

Did you get the hat first? I got the hat first.

:07:44.:07:49.

Me being a milliner I am biased, but sometimes you have to tie in

:07:49.:07:52.

the whole outfit together and that's what is really important and

:07:52.:07:59.

it is about the detail. When I was talking about a 360 degrees that's

:07:59.:08:02.

crucial because you are being photographed from so many angles

:08:02.:08:05.

and it is about carrying yourself off and I remember seeing you

:08:05.:08:10.

arrive and you looked so polished and so comfortable when you arrived.

:08:10.:08:16.

Can you do a twirl and see what Louis is talking about.

:08:16.:08:22.

The hair is perfect. Again, I was talking about hair and

:08:22.:08:27.

millinery. Of course, it is a wonderful clean neck line and it is

:08:27.:08:31.

important not to overclutter the neck line with jewellery because

:08:31.:08:34.

there is a lot happening at the top and with the outfit so giving it

:08:34.:08:37.

that clean break with the neck, it is crucial.

:08:37.:08:41.

What is your name? Maria. Maria, you are dressed beautiful

:08:41.:08:45.

today. A quick word, would you mind?

:08:45.:08:51.

You're doing the block colour in such an incredible way. And it is

:08:51.:08:57.

not even shining. Where are you going, Louis.

:08:57.:09:03.

What's your name? I'm Ellie. Tell us about your hat? I had my

:09:03.:09:08.

hat made. My dress is from Zara, �50, bargain.

:09:08.:09:15.

You are rocking the high street. What about the earrings? Hidden

:09:15.:09:21.

under this lovely mane of hair it is beautiful. Another tip about

:09:21.:09:26.

hair, if you are wearing your hair down, bring the hair to this side

:09:26.:09:33.

and then what you are doing is bring the beautiful photographic

:09:33.:09:37.

silhouette. Thank you. A splash of everything

:09:37.:09:41.

there. Good luck with the next race. I'm

:09:41.:09:49.

So from the fashion stakes to the Coronation Stakes. What I love

:09:49.:09:54.

about Ascot is the tradition here. Races have been run for 300 years

:09:54.:10:00.

and this race, the Coronation Stakes was founded in 1840 to

:10:00.:10:05.

commemorate the crowning of Queen Victoria. So a lot of good fillies

:10:05.:10:08.

won this and a lot of history to the race.

:10:08.:10:18.
:10:18.:10:18.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 48 seconds

:10:18.:11:07.

series. This race will feature the best

:11:07.:11:11.

fillies in Europe and it is the first time they will meet on a

:11:11.:11:13.

beautiful racecourse. The race can be scrappy because fillies, you

:11:13.:11:18.

need to be covered up to give them a chance to finish this stiff track

:11:18.:11:24.

over a mile. Usually you get some traffic problems around the bend

:11:24.:11:29.

because everybody wants to get their position and one or two off

:11:29.:11:35.

the rail is a big advantage. It is a three furlong strait so you have

:11:35.:11:45.
:11:45.:12:02.

plenty of time to find yourself in When I picked the paper up, I

:12:02.:12:07.

thought it was a big price. 11-2 together with Ladbrokes. They went

:12:07.:12:17.
:12:17.:12:21.

11-2. Ryan Moore opened up 4-1. 4-1, Ryan, we need you to ride this one,

:12:21.:12:26.

mate. Willie and I take ago closer look

:12:26.:12:30.

at the fillies in the paddock ahead of the Coronation Stakes and the

:12:30.:12:35.

flashy American contender, More Than Real. She hasn't won since she

:12:35.:12:45.
:12:45.:12:46.

won the Breeders' Cup for fillies. She is flashy because she has a

:12:46.:12:51.

white bridle. She has a neon light of a bridle on. She looks fit and

:12:51.:12:59.

she is musclely. I know she hasn't ran for 224 day, but she looks as

:12:59.:13:05.

if she has done plenty of work. And there is Memory.

:13:05.:13:10.

Number 9 is Memory. She didn't want to race last time. Well, she

:13:10.:13:16.

thought she was, you know, Con cord because she stayed in the stalls at

:13:16.:13:20.

Newmarket. Hamlet? She did the hamlet advert

:13:20.:13:24.

very well, but she tried to give them a furlong start in the guineas

:13:24.:13:28.

at Newmarket, but she wasn't able to do so. I would think wait and

:13:28.:13:33.

see and see what she does today, but for me, she wouldn't be a

:13:33.:13:43.
:13:43.:13:43.

bridle, it is the colours. So much brighter they are allowed to be in

:13:43.:13:49.

America and those are the colours of Bobby Flay and you can see the

:13:49.:13:58.

owner's name is embroidered on to the colours. Bobby Flay is a chef.

:13:58.:14:05.

He is on TV. He is King Of The Grill. He is passionate about his

:14:05.:14:09.

racing and it is more than a passing fancy. Bobby, good to see

:14:09.:14:13.

you here and good luck with this horse? Thank you. I am happy to be

:14:13.:14:17.

here. We want to win. You know, we want to shock the world a little

:14:17.:14:22.

bit. It is very rare that an American three-year-old filly can

:14:22.:14:25.

come over here and compete in the coronation because the competition

:14:25.:14:29.

is fierce. She won the Breeders' Cup and we gave her the winter off

:14:29.:14:32.

and she is very fresh and I'm watching her go by and she is

:14:32.:14:36.

terrific. She is on her toes and we want to give a good showing.

:14:36.:14:46.
:14:46.:14:47.

She won the Breeders' Cup. You are the king of the grill? Thank you so

:14:47.:14:50.

much. This is getting embarrassing now.

:14:50.:14:54.

Clare, you can go! I will chat to Bobby for a moment.

:14:54.:15:00.

I am a massive fan of yours. I have watched all your programmes!

:15:00.:15:10.
:15:10.:15:19.

I might just leave them. Seb Sanders trying to get ready. It

:15:19.:15:24.

is starting to rain that's why a lot of us are putting our macs on.

:15:24.:15:33.

It will be an interesting race. They have Joviality in this race.

:15:33.:15:40.

Aidan O'Brien is over here chatting to Ryan Moore. They team up with

:15:40.:15:46.

Together. Those are the colours of Derek Smith, the purple ones which

:15:46.:15:50.

have been puck sesful for Ryan Moore -- suck he isful for Ryan

:15:50.:15:56.

Moore on Power. I'm really fascinated to see Willie, Memory

:15:56.:15:59.

because she was a filly, I thought she would run really well in the

:15:59.:16:05.

guineas and I think she would have done if she jump out of the stalls.

:16:05.:16:09.

She Disgraced herself and she is a watch and look and listen sort of

:16:09.:16:13.

thing today. She was a good two- year-old, we know, but that was

:16:13.:16:18.

last year. Richard Hannon Junior is here. I

:16:18.:16:23.

was talking about Memory and I know your father said you did a lot of

:16:23.:16:27.

schooling with her at home. Have but working with her at home?

:16:27.:16:31.

took her to Salisbury last week and she was with two other horses of

:16:31.:16:36.

ours then and she jumped out of the stalls lovely. It was a normal race

:16:36.:16:40.

day. There is no reason to think she won't, she is a talented filly,

:16:40.:16:46.

but she is a little bit of a madam. It is not the best Coronation for

:16:46.:16:52.

years. It depends how the Americans do?

:16:52.:16:57.

Their colours stand out. We have two sets of American colours that

:16:57.:17:02.

will glow in the dark? There is a big crowd. As long as she runs the

:17:02.:17:08.

race, I am happy. I just hope she runs. Me too!

:17:08.:17:14.

Willie, let's continue discussing this race. Richard thinking he

:17:14.:17:20.

doesn't think it is a great Coronation. That's the French filly.

:17:20.:17:28.

She is short backed. She will run a good race that French filly. There

:17:28.:17:35.

is Memory there. She is a lovely walker, isn't she? Are you OK now?

:17:35.:17:41.

I am a massive fan of his. I always wanted to meet him. I love grilled

:17:41.:17:45.

meats. Sorry, we shouldn't be talk being it now. Professionalism, I

:17:45.:17:50.

looked at Together. What did you think of her?

:17:50.:17:56.

looked warm and sweaty like Nathaniel. It looks like you are a

:17:56.:18:02.

fan of The Grill. Stop it Willie! Let's look at the market. The

:18:02.:18:12.
:18:12.:18:23.

fillies are making their way on to isn't there? Every time they put up

:18:23.:18:29.

a bigger price they keep knocking it off. Here we go. The fillies and

:18:29.:18:34.

this field of 13 is led out on to the course by Barefoot Lady. Paul

:18:34.:18:43.

Hanagan has been replaced by Kieron Fallon. Paul Hanagan not feeling

:18:43.:18:49.

great today. Number two, it is Claiomh Solais.

:18:49.:18:56.

It is an Irish Gaelic name. She is a 9-1 shot. She has been busy this

:18:56.:19:01.

season. Then we have a grey filly. This is Clinical. Seb Sanders

:19:01.:19:11.
:19:11.:19:15.

riding for Sir Mark Prescott. Just getting on her toes is

:19:15.:19:25.
:19:25.:19:26.

Elshababiya. This is I Love Me. Immortal Verse behind. It got warm

:19:26.:19:34.

in the paddock. Then we have Joviality, William Buick, having

:19:34.:19:43.

won the King Edward VII. We have Memory and Richard Hannon

:19:43.:19:47.

Junior telling us how much schooling they have been doing with

:19:47.:19:51.

her to check she will jump out of the stalls. I should correct myself,

:19:51.:19:57.

it is a field of 12, not 13. The reason there is a big gap is this

:19:57.:20:06.

filly More Than Real, the American filly owned by Bobby Bobby Flay has

:20:06.:20:12.

been on her toes. She is knowing that she is somewhere different

:20:12.:20:18.

having travelled over from the USA. She She hasn't run for 224 days,

:20:18.:20:22.

but she is top class. The whole race turns on whether she can adapt

:20:22.:20:27.

to British conditions and turf that is on the soft guide of good and a

:20:27.:20:31.

testing mile here. She looks fantastic apart from the fact she

:20:31.:20:36.

is playing up a little bit, but it depends whether she can produce the

:20:36.:20:45.

same form that saw heroin the breeder -- we are the Breeders' Cup

:20:45.:20:53.

Fillies. Nova Hawk has a good chance.

:20:53.:20:56.

Then Theyskens' Theory, Martin Dwyer telling us how much he likes

:20:56.:21:00.

this filly and they have always felt she has a lot of ability and

:21:00.:21:05.

we will find out today if she is up to this class. Finally we have

:21:05.:21:10.

Together. Very small. Just taking tiny little steps. Two handlers as

:21:10.:21:15.

always with Aidan O'Brien's horses and the filly being ridden by Ryan

:21:15.:21:19.

Moore who is keeping a nice, long reign and making sure she doesn't

:21:19.:21:23.

get wound up by the other horses around her. Those are the

:21:23.:21:33.
:21:33.:21:45.

contenders and this is the chance, Lillie Langtry.

:21:45.:21:50.

I think it is a competitive race. There are a lot of dangers. It is

:21:50.:21:54.

not just one filly. I think if she settles and we don't get too much

:21:54.:21:58.

rain, we will be happy. Theyskens' Theory is a big strong

:21:58.:22:03.

filly with an ability to match. She was always likely to improve and

:22:03.:22:08.

and looked smart on her reappearance at York? She looks

:22:08.:22:12.

great. I am looking forward to it and she is a class filly.

:22:13.:22:17.

Joviality edged out Barefoot Lady at York, but that was over ten

:22:17.:22:22.

furlongs. Back at a mile today, supporters of Barefoot Lady may

:22:22.:22:25.

feel she could come out on top in that battle. Memory was a top class

:22:25.:22:30.

two-year-old last year, but behaved like a proper madam refuse to go

:22:30.:22:34.

race at Newmarket. If she is willing to go, she is a danger to

:22:34.:22:36.

all. She has got history with the stalls.

:22:36.:22:40.

If she jumps out of the stalls, she will take a lot of beating. She is

:22:40.:22:43.

a good filly and she owes us one after that. There is a lot of

:22:43.:22:49.

owners there. They are going to be hoping she does race. She has been

:22:49.:22:53.

through the gates at home and has been well behaved.

:22:53.:22:56.

From America is More Than Real who since that day last November has

:22:56.:23:00.

been pointed at today's race. She will have never seen as daunting a

:23:00.:23:07.

mile as this, but she is classy, she is owned by the American chef,

:23:07.:23:17.
:23:17.:23:25.

Bobby Flay. Olivia Peslier is the man charged

:23:25.:23:29.

with bringing her home. Kieron Fallon, a late change for

:23:29.:23:37.

him. A new ride for Barefoot Lady. The leading jockey for the week,

:23:37.:23:43.

Richard Hughes just wants to coax Memory out of the stalls.

:23:43.:23:53.
:23:53.:24:07.

We have a strong favourite. That's hat bookies like. Steady

:24:07.:24:13.

money! Here is our 7-2 favourite out on

:24:13.:24:18.

the course. She has classic form with three-

:24:18.:24:22.

quarters of a length second she was at Newmarket in the 1,000 guineas

:24:22.:24:29.

there. Roughly the same behind Misty and the Irish 1,000 guineas.

:24:29.:24:35.

She represents the classic form. She is one they have to beat. If

:24:35.:24:40.

stable horse are running adequately. So 7-2, I think it is a fair price

:24:40.:24:44.

for her? Yes. We would be concerned that she has got a little bit

:24:44.:24:48.

sweaty. She is warm down her neck and sweating behind the saddle, but

:24:48.:24:53.

she is nice and relaxed con contouring down. Ryan will be

:24:53.:24:57.

relaxed now he has got her down the track. Hopefully she will be fine

:24:57.:25:01.

for the race. There is a slight doubt about her

:25:01.:25:06.

on the grown, but a question mark, but it is not nothing that is

:25:06.:25:10.

certain at the momentment here is Nova Hawk.

:25:10.:25:18.

She is trained in France. She is a very descent filly already. She has

:25:18.:25:24.

got classic form. She was fourth at Newmarket in the 1,000 guineas. She

:25:25.:25:28.

went in the French equivalent when she was fourth.

:25:28.:25:33.

Yes, she is a lovely looking filly, but she was fourth in both guineas,

:25:33.:25:37.

there was no excuses for her that day. Probably as good as she was.

:25:37.:25:41.

She is nice to look at, but there has been very good money for her so

:25:41.:25:46.

one or two of the punters here have taken to her looks.

:25:46.:25:52.

And she is a gran daughter of a winner of this race. If you think

:25:52.:25:57.

back to Magic of Life who won this. That's her granddaughter.

:25:57.:26:07.

concerned this was the pick of the paddock. A lovely looking filly,

:26:07.:26:12.

nice, cool, calm, walked her around the paddock as if she owned it.

:26:12.:26:15.

This filly has done a lot of travelling and it shows today

:26:15.:26:22.

because she seems to be calm with herself. She is just taking it all

:26:22.:26:29.

in her stride and she does look the part and we know that she is a very

:26:29.:26:35.

good filly on her day and I hope possibly for Martin's sake today is

:26:35.:26:39.

her day. Yes, she missed out in running in

:26:39.:26:49.
:26:49.:26:53.

the classics and this will be the big test. Claiomh Solais for Jim

:26:53.:26:56.

Bolger she ran very well in the Irish 1,000 guineas. I wonder if

:26:56.:27:02.

there are a few too classy for her in this race? No, she will run a

:27:02.:27:08.

big race. She is by Galileo and any horses by Galileo you have to

:27:08.:27:12.

respect. Galileo, it is surprising that it doesn't matter what the

:27:12.:27:18.

ground is. You would imagine Galileo is not liking soft ground,

:27:18.:27:24.

but they are doing the winning on all kinds of ground and he is a

:27:24.:27:32.

fantastic stallion and I imagine this filly has been brought over by

:27:32.:27:37.

Jim Bolger not to be here as an also ran and she is here to compete.

:27:37.:27:44.

This is a ground one race and she is competing at the top level.

:27:44.:27:49.

Jim Bolger trying to win the Coronation Cup for the second time.

:27:49.:27:54.

Money for Nova Hawk. Plenty of money for this French horse late on.

:27:54.:28:00.

Yes, plenty of money for Nova Hawk, but still Together very solid 7-2

:28:00.:28:10.
:28:10.:28:14.

down at the start. Memory. There is Richard Hughes. He is on on Memory.

:28:14.:28:20.

He will be conscious of what this filly did at Newmarket. She

:28:20.:28:24.

disgraced herself there. She is very talented. The other one now,

:28:24.:28:31.

that's a talented, but she was rele luck tant -- reluctant to race. She

:28:31.:28:34.

is in stall 9 here and it will be interesting to see if Richard

:28:34.:28:39.

Hughes can get up there and get her interested and get her away. The

:28:39.:28:43.

Coronation Stakes, we are set to go. Ready to go racing. And Memory has

:28:43.:28:48.

jumped with them today and she held up at the back of the field on out

:28:48.:28:52.

wide Clinical up in the centre, Barefoot Lady, down near the inside

:28:52.:28:58.

rail is Claiomh Solais who goes on. From Barefoot Lady and up there as

:28:58.:29:02.

well to Joviality in the green jacket. Out wider on the track,

:29:02.:29:05.

Theyskens' Theory working up towards the leaders and further

:29:05.:29:12.

back is Clinical. Memory pulling very hard back in the field. Also

:29:12.:29:17.

pulling hard is Elshabakiya in the white jacket. The American runner,

:29:17.:29:21.

More Than Real on the rail. Further back is Memory who is tucked away

:29:21.:29:29.

Inside, Together. Who only has a couple behind her. Up the side, the

:29:30.:29:34.

leader is Claiomh Solais by a length to Theyskens' Theory in

:29:34.:29:38.

second, tucked away Joviality third, followed by Barefoot Lady and

:29:38.:29:45.

behind them is I Love Me. Around there in the centre being pushed

:29:45.:29:51.

along is Elshabakiya. Memory is tucked away on the fence. Nova Hawk

:29:51.:29:55.

is second last. Swinging for home now and the Irish filly, Claiomh

:29:55.:30:00.

Solais has kicked for home as they straighten up, two furlongs to go.

:30:00.:30:03.

Here is Joviality at the outside from Barefoot Lady who is putting

:30:03.:30:10.

in a claim Together switched to the inner. Together races up quickly.

:30:10.:30:15.

Nova Hawk is there as well. And swooping late is Immortal Verse.

:30:15.:30:19.

Immortal Verse takes it up. She has outdone them all. She come from

:30:19.:30:23.

last and she blitzed them. She goes to the line. Immortal Verse wins

:30:23.:30:27.

the Coronation Stakes in brilliant style. Nova Hawk is second. Third,

:30:27.:30:32.

Barefoot Lady. There followed by I Love Me and also Together followed

:30:32.:30:38.

by Joviality. Behind them is Memory. A long gap to Claiomh Solais from

:30:38.:30:41.

Theyskens' Theory, out the back is Elshabakiya and and there followed

:30:41.:30:45.

by More Than Real the American filly. Second last, Clinical.

:30:45.:30:52.

Clinical last to finish. It is a one, two for France and Immortal

:30:52.:31:02.
:31:02.:31:05.

Verse, this filly has flown. She goes to the line and wins the

:31:05.:31:11.

Coronation Stakes by three lengths. Nova Hawk is second. Third is

:31:11.:31:18.

Barefoot Lady, Kieren Fallon. Fourth it looks like I Love Me.

:31:18.:31:22.

It is just ahead of Together, Ryan Moore. Then in sixth place, number

:31:22.:31:29.

7, Joviality, William Buick. Memory, she came out today. She was held up

:31:29.:31:35.

and then she hasn't really kicked Theyskens' Theory behind them.

:31:35.:31:38.

Claiomh Solais set the early running and kicked for home and

:31:39.:31:43.

couldn't go on. Elshabakiya next. Then the American runner, More Than

:31:43.:31:49.

Real and Clinical last to finish. That's the order in the Coronation

:31:49.:31:53.

Stakes a leg of the British champions series and it has gone to

:31:53.:32:03.
:32:03.:32:13.

France and Immortal Verse an 8-1 Barefoot Lady. Fourth, number five,

:32:13.:32:18.

I Love Me. Two and a quarter lengths, a half

:32:18.:32:25.

length and 1.42.75. In terms of the trainers it's case of father beat

:32:25.:32:35.

son. A French 1-2. Won in sensational

:32:35.:32:39.

style with a move from Gerald Mosse around the field. This filly has

:32:39.:32:42.

taken off on the soft ground. You watch where Nova Hawk comes from

:32:43.:32:47.

too. She was trapped in a pocket. Look at them, they are second last

:32:47.:32:53.

and last as the field sweeps into the strait. A typical French way of

:32:53.:32:57.

riding is go around on the inside and then when you get straight,

:32:57.:33:05.

swing out to the outside and come with a swooping run. Gerald Mosse

:33:05.:33:15.
:33:15.:33:21.

has done this with absolutely fantastic fashion. Pasquier losing

:33:21.:33:25.

the length there. He ran in our Guineas and didn't

:33:25.:33:29.

get into the stalls. She was unruly. Didn't run. Of course went back

:33:29.:33:35.

home to France and won a Group Two in good fashion. Of course they've

:33:35.:33:45.
:33:45.:33:46.

come back here and won a Group One Coronation Stakes in good style.

:33:46.:33:51.

Allez la France they say. Maybe they went too slow in this

:33:51.:33:57.

slowing ground. The ground was hanging on to them. Gerald Mosse

:33:57.:34:02.

was very content to reserve all his energy until he got into this

:34:02.:34:10.

strait. It is typical of the French. They train them for speed.

:34:10.:34:18.

Obviously this filly, being by - Jim mentions by Pivotal. Pivotal

:34:18.:34:23.

loves the juice in the ground. They love the juice. Obviously there's

:34:23.:34:33.
:34:33.:34:34.

plenty of juice in the ground now. Ladies and gentlemen coming into

:34:34.:34:39.

the winner's enclosure, having won the Coronation Stakes, with a

:34:39.:34:45.

sweeping run from last to first, victory gos to the French. Immortal

:34:45.:34:54.

Verse, riden by Gerald Mosse and trained by Robert Collet.

:34:54.:34:58.

Well, not too many French fans here, I don't think.

:34:58.:35:05.

Fairly quiet. This trainer, Robert Collet, he is

:35:05.:35:12.

no stranger to Group One success. There he is there - Robert - he's a

:35:12.:35:16.

happy man. He's had winners every where. He had Last Tycoon, of

:35:17.:35:21.

course. If you look back through the records, his first classic

:35:21.:35:30.

winner was Son Of Love, in the St Leger, in 1979, 32 years ago. He

:35:30.:35:37.

still travels the world. These colours, this man is

:35:37.:35:44.

represented by these colours, Mr Strauss, he owns many of the horses

:35:44.:35:52.

in Robert Collet's stables. So, this is a really good filly. I

:35:52.:35:57.

wonder what would have happened if she wasn't so unruly up at

:35:57.:36:02.

Newmarket? She is brilliant. Her turn of foot today was decisive. It

:36:02.:36:06.

is one of the race's big performance. An 8-1 chance. I

:36:06.:36:14.

wonder how the boys in the ring view that one?

:36:14.:36:23.

So the winner of the coronation stakes, Immortal Verse.

:36:23.:36:27.

They backed the wrong French horse. Anybody had forecast first and

:36:27.:36:36.

second, you have a bonus, �44 for a pound. 43-1, the two French fillies.

:36:36.:36:41.

We have the winning trainer with us from France and Liz Price to do

:36:41.:36:45.

some translating for us. A Royal Ascot winner w a tricky filly for

:36:45.:36:55.
:36:55.:36:58.

you, what does that mean for you? It was not easy. The question, no,

:36:58.:37:07.

my filly is easy. She is easy, but has been a little bit naughty.

:37:07.:37:11.

TRANSLATION: I announce that this filly is actually the best filly

:37:11.:37:21.
:37:21.:37:23.

I've trained. Does she not have a bit of temperament? No. Newmarket

:37:23.:37:33.
:37:33.:37:47.

SPEAKS FRENCH TRANSLATION: What happened in the

:37:47.:37:50.

Newmarket Guineas, she wore a cover to go into the stalls and there was

:37:50.:37:57.

a lot of wind and it irritated her. That was the reason. Since then

:37:57.:38:02.

she.... She, it was the starter. She has come back and you've seen

:38:02.:38:07.

she has won. In the French Guineas things didn't go to plan, so we

:38:07.:38:10.

forget that. You have to be stubborn to come back and prove

:38:10.:38:14.

this is a group one filly. Would it be fair to say her main weapon is

:38:14.:38:24.

her turn of foot? Xabgtdly.

:38:24.:38:30.

That's all -- Exactly. That's all that needs to be said. We have the

:38:30.:38:35.

winning jockey, Gerald Mosse. speaks English - my wife. Very

:38:35.:38:39.

happy, my wife! Very happy. He's a very happy man.

:38:39.:38:44.

I was obviously chatting to him about this filly. He said she has

:38:44.:38:51.

no temperament. She seems very easy. She's very easy. She's, she had to

:38:52.:38:56.

be riden steady and stay behind. We are not very anxious because we

:38:56.:39:02.

know she would finish very fast. Perhaps he thought to come too

:39:02.:39:12.

occasion for the family? For the family, I'm very glad for Mr

:39:12.:39:16.

Strauss, because he didn't come very often in France. He's American.

:39:16.:39:23.

I hope it was the race on the TV and congratulations to Mr Strauss.

:39:23.:39:27.

I want to speak to the winning jockey. The turn of if she has

:39:27.:39:31.

shown there, I presume the strong pace has played into your hands,

:39:31.:39:35.

hasn't it? I believe the pace was good enough for the ground, but not

:39:35.:39:39.

that fast. She was a bit keen, so I just decided to drop her behind and

:39:39.:39:44.

make sure that she is going to be totally relaxed going up the hill

:39:44.:39:49.

and go for the 400. When I take my time to start to put her out,

:39:49.:39:53.

actually she reacts quicker than I was expecting. She was coming too

:39:54.:39:58.

quick. It was too fast. The first time I was on board, and I knew she

:39:58.:40:04.

would react, but not that fast. I was coming really easily. I had the

:40:05.:40:10.

race in the 500. Your trainer seems to think she's a super filly. What

:40:10.:40:15.

are your thoughts? The last good filly I was running here in the

:40:15.:40:19.

coronation as well, Gold Splash. Many years ago. I would say, they

:40:19.:40:24.

are all different, but this one has a fantastic turn of foot. Only top

:40:24.:40:31.

horses can do that. I just want to congratulate the owner and try not

:40:31.:40:36.

to put me on the filly at the last minute. She's really a great ride.

:40:36.:40:42.

I'm very pleased. You have ridden top winners all over the world. We

:40:42.:40:46.

remember you winning the Melbourne cup. What does a Royal Ascot winner

:40:46.:40:52.

mean to you? It is one of the best. You cannot ask a question like that.

:40:52.:40:56.

Everybody dreams to have a runner here only, not to win. When you get

:40:56.:41:02.

a chance to win a great one, it aets a wonderful feeling. I am very

:41:02.:41:06.

-- it's a wonderful feeling. I am very happy to be here. We will

:41:06.:41:11.

rescue him. She's not too difficult. Just look

:41:11.:41:17.

at this - she comes out of the stalls. We will show you this very

:41:17.:41:21.

slowly indeed. She wants to do a little jump there. Cheltenham, a

:41:21.:41:26.

couple of flights of hurdles. way beyond that. There is distance

:41:26.:41:32.

between her anded the horse drawn next to her, Seb Sanders. Because

:41:32.:41:38.

she jumped into space she ran free. It took Gerald a stride or two to

:41:38.:41:43.

get her back. Memory, the thing was she is very slowly away at

:41:43.:41:48.

Newmarket. She gets away OK here. Richard Hughes says, right, we have

:41:48.:41:52.

started, that is good. She fighting him early on. She never settled

:41:52.:41:58.

into the race. Once he got her out. He wanted her settled. Took her

:41:58.:42:05.

across to the rail. Once he got her there, she never settled into the

:42:05.:42:09.

race. Like the filly of Jim's in the first race. If they are using

:42:09.:42:13.

that much energy, I am afraid it's not going to be their day. On this

:42:13.:42:21.

ground they are not going to get home. Here's your winner. Here's

:42:21.:42:26.

your second horse. Here in third place, the filly in fourth position

:42:26.:42:35.

there. Let's look, in the purple jacket of Ryan Moore. Now I think

:42:35.:42:40.

she flaupbl der on the ground. They get a bit close. She is struggling

:42:40.:42:50.
:42:50.:42:52.

already, isn't she? It got messy. Like you say, she was flaundering

:42:52.:42:56.

about. She gets off balance again. She fades the last furlong of the

:42:56.:43:05.

race. She was not happy. We have fillies there have well in the

:43:05.:43:09.

3,000 Guineas the England, Ireland and also at the Curragh. But as so

:43:09.:43:15.

often we see, get to mid-June, the whole thing changes, one who has

:43:15.:43:25.
:43:25.:43:27.

beaten before and put in an impressive performance. 1.42.75.

:43:27.:43:35.

He's a world-class jockey Gerald Mosse. There we are, the father and

:43:35.:43:41.

son. Robert and Rod Collet, having finished first and second. The

:43:41.:43:46.

press sensation being made at the moment by the man behind the new

:43:46.:43:56.
:43:56.:43:57.

British champion series. We heard from Robert Collet's wife there.

:43:57.:44:04.

Wow, that is a big trophy, isn't it? Isn't it a big one!

:44:04.:44:09.

That was the mutest response we've had for any winner coming into the

:44:09.:44:13.

winner's enclosure. I know a lot of people didn't back her. There's a

:44:13.:44:17.

lot of people here today. I am afraid there were not that many

:44:18.:44:22.

people who went for this French filly. Of course we got a French

:44:22.:44:27.

one-two, which is not very good for our sort of fillies. Obviously our

:44:27.:44:32.

fillies in England are not very strong over the mile.

:44:32.:44:35.

We better not trouble with them, then!

:44:35.:44:40.

They were very exciting to watch. I loved the shots coming out of the

:44:40.:44:45.

stalls. I love how Gerald Mosse rides. His balance was brilliant as

:44:45.:44:51.

Immortal Verse was fly-jumping out of the stalls. She only fly-jumped

:44:51.:44:58.

the once. Gerrard said, "no, you are not going." He said, ee, you

:44:58.:45:04.

are." A -- he said, yes, you are." We still have three races to come

:45:04.:45:09.

here at Ascot. At the Royal Meeting on day four, two of them on BBC Two.

:45:09.:45:14.

The other on the red button and next up we have the Wolferton

:45:14.:45:19.

Handicap. The favourite is Green Destiny, who missed a big race

:45:19.:45:23.

earlier this week to concentrate on this. Then we have the Queen's Vase.

:45:23.:45:28.

A race that Mark Johnston has dominated in recent years. He has a

:45:28.:45:32.

strong hand in that. Then we finish off on the red button with the

:45:32.:45:42.
:45:42.:45:51.

tell me why you haven't come back to the UK for three or four years

:45:51.:45:57.

now, I think? Things are going well for me at home. I have chased the

:45:57.:46:02.

premierships there in Sydney.Vy managed to win one and runner up in

:46:02.:46:09.

one or two since. Mick offer md me the opportunity to

:46:09.:46:12.

come back. How many different championships in regions in

:46:12.:46:17.

Australia, because it is such a big country, do you have as a flat

:46:17.:46:21.

jockey? Plenty. The two main ones are Sydney and Melbourne. They are

:46:21.:46:27.

hard to win. I was fortunate enough to win one as a freelance jockey.

:46:27.:46:32.

That's worked well for me, in my career and hopefully not my last.

:46:32.:46:37.

The draw of Royal Ascot, I believe like so many jockeys a few days'

:46:37.:46:43.

suspension ruled you out the first few days. I was given a four-day

:46:43.:46:47.

suspension, Saturday a week ago in a Group One race. That was

:46:47.:46:50.

unfortunate. The bottom line is, I'm here today and looking forward

:46:50.:46:59.

to what is ahead. You were the first man to ride So You Think Of

:46:59.:47:04.

Victory. What do you think -- So You Think to victory. What do you

:47:04.:47:09.

think of him? I am sure you will see him at top grade here. It was a

:47:09.:47:15.

surprise to see him get beat. Most horses do get beat. That is racing.

:47:15.:47:21.

It was an excellent race. I am sure we'll see more of those horses.

:47:21.:47:26.

the horse you rode today, you have ridden the last one to victory.

:47:26.:47:32.

ran in a maiden here on this very track. So, I link up with him again

:47:32.:47:36.

and hopefully he can give me the same result. How long will you be

:47:36.:47:41.

here for? At least six weeks and seeing how things go. The season

:47:41.:47:44.

starts to wind up from mid-August. I would like to be home for the

:47:44.:47:48.

start of that. While you are here I hope you have a few winners and

:47:48.:47:53.

good luck. Cheers. Back with fashion now. As it starts to

:47:53.:47:58.

drizzle. We are trying to shelter here. This is Ruth, who has come

:47:58.:48:04.

over from Ireland. It is a special treat? It is a birthday present

:48:04.:48:08.

from Dermott, my husband. winners? Unfortunately not.

:48:08.:48:14.

know in the next one I have back it. There's a horse called Green

:48:14.:48:19.

Destiny. Well I've have to go on it. I think you will have to. The hat -

:48:19.:48:24.

it is stunning, isn't it? When you see someone from 500 metres and

:48:24.:48:29.

when I saw Ruth I said "that's a vision." You are in your national

:48:29.:48:39.
:48:39.:48:41.

colour today. Tell me about your hat. It is my a milliner Carol

:48:41.:48:47.

Trenelly. What we have here is a beautiful plume. It is actually a

:48:47.:48:52.

burnt peacock. Then you dye it and give it this incredible feel about

it. Of course you have watched everything down to the detail,

:48:54.:49:00.

which I love. It is all about the detail, detail, detail. These birds

:49:00.:49:06.

look real. It looks like it -- these buds look real. It looks like

:49:06.:49:12.

it may be heavy. It is very heavy. There is her husband wo gave the

:49:12.:49:18.

birthday treat to Ruth. It is co- ordinated beautifully. It has been

:49:18.:49:25.

a pleasure, Ruth. What is nice about the men is they

:49:25.:49:29.

make such a huge effort as well. Now, there's this wonderful

:49:29.:49:33.

gentleman over here, who I spotted a while back. Now, Mr, you are the

:49:33.:49:38.

only person I have seen with this wonderful velvet jacket. Tell me

:49:38.:49:43.

more about that? I have never seen one like it. I had it made for my

:49:43.:49:52.

wedding by Tom Brown, the toy lor in Eton. A little bit -- in Eton. A

:49:52.:50:01.

little bit about the Thai? Not sure. A high street shop. This is a bit

:50:01.:50:09.

of upholstery fabric. Mixed it up. It is fine. You can mix bespoke

:50:09.:50:13.

couture with high street. The great thing about the guys is they need

:50:14.:50:18.

to clash the waist coat with the Thai. That is what makes it so

:50:18.:50:23.

stylist. Louise, this is your boyfriend. Did he dress himself?

:50:23.:50:27.

John definitely dressed himself. you come to the races a lot?

:50:27.:50:33.

third time. Have you got any tips for us?

:50:33.:50:43.
:50:43.:50:43.

the last two due to a good tipster. What is the good tipster A Channel

:50:43.:50:48.

4 commentators. What have you got next Green Destiny, Spanish Duke.

:50:48.:50:52.

This is looking good. I put money on Green Destiny. We know where to

:50:52.:50:56.

hang around for the champagne. I think we are on for a few -- on to

:50:56.:51:05.

a few winners. You look amazing. So again, I think what is nice is when,

:51:05.:51:09.

you know, you find more gentlemen wearing even more quirker outfits

:51:09.:51:13.

and of course these gentlemen over here don't let us down. Who put

:51:13.:51:18.

your outfit together? We need confession and honesty? It was my

:51:18.:51:23.

mother who designed the colour. She did the whole thing. So very much

:51:23.:51:28.

thank you to her. Apart from that, the rest was my input. Are you

:51:28.:51:32.

enjoying the day? Yes, thank you very much.

:51:32.:51:36.

We have to talk about the tip, haven't we for the next race. We

:51:36.:51:41.

just plo through. Wonder down to our friends John Parrot and Gary,

:51:41.:51:46.

who are probably very busy. Wonderful sights. Lots of bright

:51:46.:51:51.

brollys. Are you with me? Come on, keep up!

:51:51.:51:55.

Fellas...: Hello. Hello. Can you get under this umbrella with that

:51:55.:51:59.

hat on? Hello. How you doing? It is good to

:51:59.:52:05.

see you again. I got the buggy cart lift off you. Don't tell everybody.

:52:05.:52:09.

I was supposed to walk home! You are not meant to eat fish and

:52:09.:52:15.

chips in that car either! The next race I put a bet on Green

:52:15.:52:21.

Destiny. I have heard from somebody else I have made a good decision.

:52:21.:52:29.

She put 5-2. Honestly it is 13-8. Did you smile at him when you got

:52:29.:52:35.

the price. The eye eyes as well. Who do you fancy? I cannot confess.

:52:35.:52:42.

Mod damn over here told me to keep a secret or two. Yes?

:52:42.:52:46.

Don't you start. Another secret was revealed. We'll watch this race.

:52:46.:52:50.

You reckon I will make money today. I lost it all yesterday. Green

:52:50.:52:55.

Destiny is my selection for today. You probably put the mockers on me.

:52:55.:53:02.

No, no, no. I think it's a good thing. You should play as well. 5-2

:53:02.:53:09.

you'd play. I will take a tip or two off you later. If it gets beat,

:53:09.:53:15.

it's your fault. The design on traditional jockey skills -- silks

:53:15.:53:19.

has remained the same for 200 years. That is about to change thanks from

:53:19.:53:28.

an initiative from Racing For Change.

:53:28.:53:33.

The racing silks have been used since the mid-1700s, so the very

:53:33.:53:37.

rich owners of the horses could spot which one was theirs at

:53:37.:53:41.

distance. It was not until the mid- 1800s that it was a rule of racing

:53:41.:53:47.

that you had to have registered silks. Since then then there have

:53:47.:53:52.

been fairly strict terms applied to them. Since this day there are a

:53:52.:53:56.

set combination of colours you can have and pattern. With the aim of

:53:56.:54:02.

creating a new look, Racing for Change opened a competition to

:54:02.:54:06.

students of St Martin's College of Art and design in London. Where

:54:06.:54:11.

they have drawn their inspiration is from is broad. We have the

:54:11.:54:17.

designs that are informed by fruit machines, lucky charms. They work

:54:17.:54:21.

very well. Each of my designs is based on a different art movement.

:54:21.:54:31.

So there is cubism. There is pick kas co-. I have tried to keep --

:54:31.:54:36.

Picasso. I try and keep them simple. In America there is a set of silks

:54:36.:54:41.

in America which are in the Superman colours. If you can have

:54:41.:54:45.

Superman in America, you can have a few variations on theme in this

:54:45.:54:51.

country. British racing may not be ready yet for superheroes, but the

:54:51.:54:58.

first race on July 9th will see the winning design on show. My idea was

:54:58.:55:03.

on fruit machines to make simbls which would be pout -- symbols

:55:03.:55:07.

which would be suitable for racing silks. To see them being worn in a

:55:07.:55:11.

race will be amazing. It will be fantastic. So that new initiative

:55:11.:55:17.

about to be unveiled on July 9th. Bigger and potentially more

:55:17.:55:22.

exciting initiative takes place here on 15th October. That is the

:55:22.:55:26.

British champion's day, as the climax to the champion's series.

:55:26.:55:31.

Nick, it's one that has created some debate in racing. It is now

:55:31.:55:34.

established and looking forward to it. What is the build-up going to

:55:34.:55:39.

be like. What is the interest in it like for the wilder world? As you

:55:39.:55:47.

say, it is an exciting initiative. �3,000 in prize money. Put that in

:55:47.:55:52.

context. Royal Ascot money is �4 million over the entire week. This

:55:52.:56:01.

is new money koss tosy of Kitco. It is the fan -- -- money courtesy of

:56:01.:56:09.

Kitco. The idea of bringing horsing like Frankel is what you would like.

:56:09.:56:17.

Any concern is -- it is after a long season? There are horses who

:56:17.:56:22.

are ten-furlong horses. There are great ones like. This is a great

:56:22.:56:28.

opportunity for horses. We know we are going to play our part in the

:56:28.:56:32.

wider international calendar along with the Arc weekend and breeder's

:56:32.:56:36.

cup. Will we get more horses from the States coming over for that?

:56:36.:56:41.

Coming over from the States is ambition. The same for the

:56:41.:56:45.

Australians, because of the spring carnival. We see this as a

:56:45.:56:49.

European's champion day. We will see more horses which have competed

:56:49.:56:54.

in the Kitco series through the year. The weather has turned the

:56:54.:56:58.

last couple of days. I understand the crowds were up ged. Yesterday.

:56:58.:57:07.

What sort of crowd -- were up again yesterday. What sort of crowds can

:57:07.:57:11.

we expect tomorrow? We will get about 75,000 people tomorrow, which

:57:11.:57:16.

will be our busiest day. We'll have, hopefully we'll get the crowds

:57:16.:57:20.

through today we'll see increases for every day. It has been a great

:57:20.:57:24.

week. Hospitality is up. Crowds are up. People have been happy and the

:57:24.:57:28.

crowds have really enjoyed it. weather forecast tomorrow? It is

:57:28.:57:32.

not very good. I am glad it has sold out already. Thank you for

:57:32.:57:36.

talking to us. And the Golden Jubilee tomorrow afternoon, the

:57:36.:57:42.

feature race and also we'll be back here at Ascot on Saturday 23rd July,

:57:42.:57:51.

for the King George. It could contain Work Force,

:57:51.:58:01.

Rewilding and So You Think. Then we will be back with full coverage of

:58:01.:58:07.

QIPCO coverage. This Monday coverage starts on the BBC of

:58:07.:58:13.

Wimbledon 2011. Andy Murray has been drawn with Rafael Nadal.

:58:13.:58:15.

The other extraordinary thing is that those who played that record

:58:16.:58:19.

match last year have been drawn against each other. On Sunday night

:58:19.:58:29.

you can enjoy a look back at Wimbledon over the last 1250 -- 125

:58:29.:58:32.

years. There's nothing like it when you look at it, whether you're

:58:32.:58:41.

there in person, the smell of it or when you watch it on TV.

:58:41.:58:45.

It's the one that everybody knows. Even people who don't know tennis,

:58:45.:58:50.

they know Wimbledon. It's the biggest tournament in the world.

:58:50.:58:53.

you are a champion you are known for life.

:58:53.:58:58.

I have always felt there is something special. It is a place I

:58:58.:59:04.

wanted to be a parbtd of, compete in and -- a part in, one day

:59:04.:59:08.

hopefully win. You speak to the majority of the players and they

:59:08.:59:13.

say if there was a tournament that you could win, which would it be?

:59:14.:59:19.

And they say, Wimbledon. Sunday night at 8pm is that documentary.

:59:19.:59:24.

125 years of Wimbledon. You cannot be serious.

:59:24.:59:32.

Let's go to the trainer of Green Destiny. This Wolferton Handicap is

:59:32.:59:37.

a competitive race. This year it is about Green Destiny. William is

:59:38.:59:43.

with us. William, he is very impressive. He won impressively at

:59:43.:59:49.

Newmarket. Why did you choose this race and not the Hunt Cup earlier?

:59:49.:59:53.

The ground. I always fancied this race before the Hunt Cup. When it

:59:53.:59:59.

rained on Monday I changed my mind. That's the way it is. This is the

:59:59.:00:03.

right race for him, I'm sure. has impressed a lot of people. His

:00:04.:00:07.

performance at Newmarket was very easy on the eye. Has he always

:00:07.:00:12.

shown you ability at home? He is one of those nice, progressive,

:00:12.:00:17.

uncomplicated, kind horses. He'll give his best running. Whether he

:00:17.:00:23.

wins or not, I don't know. He'll give his best. What about Shamali -

:00:23.:00:28.

he was on a roll a couple of years ago? He is a charming horse. I

:00:28.:00:32.

would fancy him normally.Vy no idea how he'll go on the ground. I

:00:32.:00:38.

thought he wouldn't like it. He is by Selkirk. We are giving it a go.

:00:38.:00:45.

He is a strong, genuine horse. I ament sure he'll run a good -- I am

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:00:58.

have seen, �40,000 cash. It is now 6-4. John, this is a massive gamble.

:00:58.:01:02.

This is it, Green Destiny. Absolutely. Every time they stick

:01:02.:01:05.

up a bigger price they come and knock it off.

:01:05.:01:11.

You know how much he gets back if this wins, �105,000!

:01:11.:01:20.

It is Green Destiny as we say, 6-4. 7-1 for Spanish Duke.

:01:20.:01:26.

, but it is all about Green Destiny. Suzi could be back here to collect

:01:26.:01:35.

heroinings, John! -- her winnings, John.

:01:35.:01:45.
:01:45.:01:46.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 48 seconds

:01:46.:02:27.

A lot of non runners today. 15 in same as the Prince of Wales Stakes.

:02:27.:02:32.

Not a great length of time before they get to Swinley Bottom and they

:02:32.:02:37.

have to contend with that steep uphill climb to home. Just under

:02:38.:02:47.

three furlongs and they run up to excited about the chance to ride

:02:47.:02:54.

Green Destiny all week, but we are looking at Eddie Ahern. Spanish

:02:54.:03:01.

Duke planned himself and said, "I want to look at the view. Do you

:03:01.:03:09.

want me to walk forward?". He is tall. Eddie Ahern had two winners

:03:09.:03:14.

this week. He is going very, very well and Spanish Duke an each way

:03:14.:03:20.

chance. He looked impressive at Epsom. We saw him at Epsom, didn't

:03:20.:03:30.
:03:30.:03:33.

Yes. He is here today, John... We heard

:03:33.:03:38.

Willie talking about that horse, Shamali. He said he was concerned

:03:38.:03:42.

whether the mile and a quarter on soft ground would suit him.

:03:42.:03:52.
:03:52.:03:58.

It is stretching his stamina, isn't Mickael Barzalona taking over

:03:58.:04:08.
:04:08.:04:10.

plenty of rides from Frankie Dettori.

:04:11.:04:18.

This horse, you can see he has the jig pieces on and this horse was

:04:18.:04:26.

trained by Gerry Miniseder. We were talking about the tennis earlier

:04:26.:04:34.

and the future racing we have got this weekend. Also coverage on Five

:04:34.:04:41.

Live and the golf where Rory McIlroy has stretched his lead.

:04:41.:04:46.

This is -- there is William Buick. He has the blinkers on today to

:04:46.:04:51.

help him concentrate. Willie, we saw... They are back on Beachfire.

:04:51.:04:55.

Do you think those drawn wide will go under the trees? I think they

:04:55.:05:00.

might do tomorrow after more rain, but it was touch and go whether it

:05:00.:05:07.

was advisable to do so. I hope Balducci runs well. It is

:05:07.:05:17.
:05:17.:05:22.

the Wolferton Handicap. A mile and side on there. One restless and

:05:22.:05:31.

about five playing up. The horse in 5, Shamali. Now they

:05:31.:05:39.

are better settled. Ready. Set. Racing in the Wolferton and

:05:39.:05:43.

Circumvent in the centre first away. Down near the inside, quickly is

:05:43.:05:52.

Resurge. Out in the centre, Lost In The Moment. Up there is be

:05:52.:05:58.

remembered. Balducci is trapped very wide with the nose band. Lost

:05:58.:06:05.

In The Moment, tucked away on the inside inside World Heritage and

:06:06.:06:11.

further back is Resurge. Resurge has a rails position. They come

:06:11.:06:15.

into Swinley Bottom. Well back is Spanish Duke and in company with

:06:15.:06:19.

Shamali. They race out of Swinley Bottom and they have got, it is

:06:19.:06:23.

under six furlongs to travel. Circumvent the leader from Balducci

:06:23.:06:27.

and World Heritage is tucked away. A length to Lost In The Moment, the

:06:28.:06:36.

blue jacket outside Resurge. Further back, behind them is

:06:36.:06:39.

Waydownsouth from Be Remembered and in company with Spanish Duke. Being

:06:39.:06:43.

ridden along is Riggins on in the centre, Right Step giving them a

:06:43.:06:49.

start. In company with Gallic Star and taking to the outside. Green

:06:49.:06:52.

Destiny back second last at this stage on the inside and last is

:06:52.:06:56.

Beachfire. Coming up towards the turn and the leader is Circumvent

:06:56.:07:05.

by a length, Balducci. Tucked away is World Heritage, a length away is

:07:05.:07:10.

Lost In The Moment. On the inside, Be Remembered. Green Destiny being

:07:10.:07:13.

stoked up with about ten lengths to make up now as they round the turn

:07:13.:07:17.

and on the inside he will need luck. Into the strait, Lost In The Moment

:07:17.:07:21.

is first to strike for hem. He goes a length in front of Circumvent.

:07:21.:07:27.

Behind them, battling away, Bea Remembered. Out in front is Lost In

:07:27.:07:32.

The Moment. Waydownsouth is on the outside and then Bea Remembered and

:07:32.:07:36.

Shamali and finishing fast is Beachfire. It is buyer buyer on the

:07:36.:07:43.

inside. Lost In The Moment and Beachfire. Beachfire is going home

:07:43.:07:47.

like a real bullet to the line and goes on to win it well. Beachfire

:07:47.:07:51.

gets the win. From in second, Lost In The Moment, Waydownsouth is

:07:51.:07:57.

third. A gap to Right Step, Riggins in a bunch with Green Destiny,

:07:57.:08:02.

never ever got going followed by Gallic Star by them and then Bea

:08:02.:08:06.

Remembered, Balducci, Circumvent and one of the last to cross the

:08:06.:08:15.

line Shamali. Well that was as if jet-propelled. William Buick on

:08:15.:08:19.

Beachfire and there he is crossing the line. Another winner for

:08:19.:08:24.

William and wins it by three lengths to Lost In The Moment. In

:08:24.:08:28.

third is Waydownsouth and a gap to Right Step, followed by Bea

:08:28.:08:32.

Remembered and then Gallic Star on the near-side. Top of the screen

:08:33.:08:38.

there is the favourite, Green Destiny. He never got going. He had

:08:38.:08:42.

ten lengths to make up, Riggins in the centre, Balducci behind them

:08:42.:08:46.

and Circumvent further back and then a gap to the others, Shamali

:08:46.:08:51.

back there in company with Resurge and also there was World Heritage

:08:51.:08:58.

and one more to come, that's, think, Shamali, no, it is Spanish Duke who

:08:58.:09:03.

is right out the back. But the winner there is number 16 and

:09:03.:09:09.

Beachfire ridden by William Buick. It is trained by John Gosden. He is

:09:09.:09:19.
:09:19.:09:22.

having a good week and the colt by Indian Haven won it. Second is Lost

:09:22.:09:28.

In The Moment at 8-1. 12-1 the winner. Third is Waydownsouth at

:09:28.:09:38.
:09:38.:09:46.

20-1 and fourth, number 13, Right Step ridden by Jim Crowley.

:09:46.:09:50.

I cannot wait to see this again. Beachfire is a very, very tricky

:09:51.:09:55.

horse and and hasn't always looked the most willing. They have had the

:09:55.:09:58.

blinkers on and taken them off and put them on again. And he comes

:09:58.:10:02.

through the pack. Some horses really enjoy getting in there,

:10:02.:10:07.

coming past other horses and they take off. It has become a theme

:10:07.:10:13.

here this afternoon. Horses coming from last to winning. William Buick

:10:13.:10:16.

he has gone right the spay, he split the whole field. He was lucky

:10:16.:10:21.

that he never got checked. You know, he plotted a path. Never getting

:10:21.:10:26.

his horse into trouble and and there he is, he only pick his stick

:10:26.:10:33.

up when his horse hit the front and gave him two taps and just to keep

:10:33.:10:37.

him going, he put his stick away and celebrated before the line. He

:10:37.:10:42.

is a happy boy. You see those blinkers, they wherein on last time.

:10:42.:10:48.

Last year he won four of his his five races.

:10:48.:10:53.

Balducci is going backwards at this point having being favourite. He

:10:53.:10:57.

gets knocked side ways there. He gets knocked by William Buick. He

:10:57.:11:00.

was beaten at the time, but the stewards may have a look into that

:11:00.:11:04.

and sorry, you were looking at Green Destiny on the rails. He

:11:05.:11:08.

looked uncomfortable. He was never travelling with conviction, you

:11:08.:11:12.

know. You could see him six furlongs from home. He was just on

:11:12.:11:20.

the bridle, but his action was not as strong as you would have liked.

:11:20.:11:24.

You can see how way ward Beachfire is. He dives quickly from side to

:11:24.:11:29.

side, but once William gets him straight, what he does quickly is

:11:29.:11:37.

again. We will soon. There is William

:11:37.:11:43.

coming back in. The green colours. Let's have

:11:43.:11:49.

another look and watch for him on the right, the green jacket. He has

:11:49.:11:53.

had to have luck. Green Destiny on the left. Look at him there, he is

:11:53.:11:58.

just a little bit unbalanced and he comes in sharply on Shamali. And

:11:58.:12:05.

here he is, he is coming over again and Shamali being slightly checked.

:12:05.:12:10.

This horse is doing things very quickly, Beachfire. Let's have

:12:10.:12:15.

another look. There he is. It is a real sharp man over and as you can

:12:15.:12:22.

see, he is off balance and he has got got a whack for his trutial,

:12:22.:12:27.

across -- trouble across the nose. Full credit, Beachfire he has

:12:27.:12:31.

really gone to the line as if jet propelled. It was a real surge of

:12:31.:12:35.

power. Have a look at the other one in green colours on the left,

:12:35.:12:39.

that's Green Destiny. Fou for a few -- now for a few strides he looked

:12:39.:12:43.

like he was going to put in a sustained effort like the winner,

:12:43.:12:49.

but his run just petered out. Disappointing. John Gosden having a

:12:50.:12:54.

word now to Ritchie. We have got the winning trainer,

:12:54.:12:57.

John Gosden. We wanted to know about this horse

:12:57.:13:01.

and the use of the head gear and the fact that it managed to work.

:13:01.:13:05.

What's the reasoning? The soft ground. He loves the soft ground.

:13:05.:13:13.

He has this naughty habit of of of dropping out of a race, but not

:13:13.:13:19.

running against superior stock so we popped the head gear on and he

:13:19.:13:23.

has come through well. The wife has beaten the husband and the husband

:13:23.:13:26.

is delighted so we are not in big trouble!

:13:26.:13:36.
:13:36.:13:40.

I would love to to grab a word with Princess Hyre. You seem to

:13:40.:13:45.

appreciate this. Lots of pats for the winner He is a lovely horse and

:13:46.:13:55.

John is a wonderful trainer. It was so much fun. We had a lovely time

:13:55.:13:58.

watching the race. It must have been exciting watching

:13:58.:14:05.

him because he had to take, William had to do a lot of slaloming.

:14:05.:14:11.

William is great. I'm thrilled. What was that like for you? We know

:14:11.:14:16.

he is a funny horse anyway. Sometimes people thought he hasn't

:14:16.:14:24.

put it all in? He is a talented horse. It is just fantastic to run

:14:24.:14:32.

a Royal Ascot winner for Princess Haya. It worked out. He needed luck

:14:32.:14:34.

in running and thank god he got it today.

:14:34.:14:42.

Did he take a crack on the nose? was finishing fast and they were

:14:42.:14:46.

coming back to him quickly, it was like dodging bullets a bit and then

:14:46.:14:50.

I had to give him a sharp right- hander.

:14:50.:14:54.

I was talking to John a few moments ago saying this horse has been

:14:54.:14:57.

accused of putting his head up when you asked for everything, but today

:14:57.:15:01.

he put his head down and really tried. Can you tell what the

:15:02.:15:09.

reasoning was for that? I got it wrong. Mr Gosden asked me if he

:15:09.:15:12.

needed blinkers, and I said I didn't think so. He ran out at good

:15:12.:15:17.

wood and he doesn't concentrate without the blinkers. There was

:15:17.:15:24.

nothing wrong with his head carriage today with the blinkers on.

:15:24.:15:27.

It is nice to have two in a row? is great.

:15:27.:15:37.
:15:37.:15:40.

Well done. Beachfire. There was a lot of money

:15:40.:15:45.

left in the satchel there, Gary. Where has that �40,000 on the

:15:45.:15:53.

favourite gone? It just disappeared. William Buick, 16-1 for top jockey.

:15:53.:15:57.

Richard Hughes is still favourite. Remember, Richard Hughes rides one

:15:58.:16:05.

of the steamers Halifax, who was 7- 1. Ryan Moore still 6-5, but Ryan,

:16:05.:16:10.

when is he going to ride a winner? Where did that �40,000 go? This is

:16:10.:16:14.

the answer? If you are you are of a nervous disposition, you you

:16:14.:16:21.

probably don't want to watch. Here is Green Destiny and we will start

:16:21.:16:28.

in the stalls. The problem with the mile and a quarter, everybody wants

:16:28.:16:32.

to get to the rails. Basically, he breaks well enough, but gets

:16:32.:16:34.

crowded out at the start of the race.

:16:34.:16:38.

Jts it is all about position. Michael broke with the intention to

:16:38.:16:42.

sit mid-field, but unfortunately for Michael, everybody else wanted

:16:42.:16:51.

to sit mid-field. Eddie Ahern is is getting pressure and it squeezed

:16:51.:16:53.

Michael back. He ended up at the back of the

:16:53.:16:56.

field. However, so did the winner. We are

:16:56.:17:00.

going to towards towards the home strait. There is the winner. The

:17:00.:17:05.

second horse is here. The third horse here. So winner and the

:17:05.:17:08.

favourite are in identical positions at the back of the field.

:17:08.:17:12.

If we run this on, we will see, Green Destiny does have a lot of

:17:12.:17:16.

space on the inside, doesn't he? thought when Michael picked up that

:17:16.:17:19.

he might struggle to get through, but he never got stopped in his run

:17:20.:17:25.

at all. He got a lovely run up the the rails and there is no excuses.

:17:25.:17:29.

Take nothing away from this winner, we know he is a character, once he

:17:29.:17:33.

got past one and popped himself into gear, he picked up really well

:17:34.:17:37.

and the blinkers have done the trick.

:17:37.:17:41.

Right on the rails, the green jacket. He is well beat. Can we

:17:41.:17:47.

blame the start for that? Or is he on the day not been good enough?

:17:47.:17:52.

Well, unfortunately horses can't talk. Michael wasn't comfortable

:17:52.:17:56.

where he was, so we will never know. That's a very big fence you are sat

:17:56.:18:06.
:18:06.:18:14.

Duke of Devonshire. He held the role since 1997 and William Buick

:18:14.:18:24.
:18:24.:18:28.

with his second winner of the day and second winner this week and

:18:28.:18:31.

Princess Hyara there. We have watched really dramatic

:18:31.:18:34.

racing? It has always been good racing.

:18:34.:18:42.

It has been eventful? It was an in- house race there when the wife

:18:42.:18:49.

beats the husband. Well, it would be an interesting journey home,

:18:49.:18:52.

won't it? There will ablot of giggling and laughing on the way

:18:52.:18:56.

home. My head is full of that phrase

:18:56.:19:02.

being taken out of context. We know what you mean! We are going to

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:17.

focus on you for this one because BBC, come on.

:19:17.:19:22.

I don't think people really appreciated just how canny he was

:19:22.:19:25.

in the saddle. I had to do something to beat the

:19:25.:19:30.

filly. I couldn't beat her on form. Going To the outside which is

:19:30.:19:34.

unusual this. The ground under the trees, it is

:19:34.:19:37.

protected from the weather. The roots of the trees would soak

:19:37.:19:41.

up the water. Very canny man young Carson!

:19:41.:19:45.

I knew I would win as soon as they didn't come with me.

:19:45.:19:51.

COMMENTATOR: Willie Carson on the wide outside. He is in front by

:19:51.:19:54.

about two lengths. It became obvious that he had

:19:55.:19:59.

stolen a really big advantage and it was something that won him the

:19:59.:20:09.
:20:09.:20:09.

race. COMMENTATOR: The mare is the winner.

:20:09.:20:13.

Willie Carson was a very brave man to do what he did.

:20:13.:20:20.

It was very slewed and tip -- shrewd and typical of the man!

:20:20.:20:22.

He returns in the famous blue colours.

:20:22.:20:29.

I had to do something that gave me the edge and obviously I over did

:20:29.:20:38.

And that was one of the only times that she was beaten.

:20:38.:20:42.

She won the Breeders' Cup. Now, what did your trainer, John

:20:42.:20:46.

Dunlop think of that move of brilliance?

:20:46.:20:55.

He wasn't party to it because I had a word with sheikh Hamdon in the

:20:55.:21:00.

paddock and John Dunlop was a bit late getting to the paddock and I

:21:00.:21:06.

went to post and he didn't know what was going to happen. So...

:21:06.:21:11.

you had a word with Richard Hills before and said, "Take the rest of

:21:11.:21:17.

the teeld to the rail -- field to the rails." Ryan Moore had that

:21:17.:21:21.

word with Neil and said we are going to go under the trees. Did

:21:21.:21:25.

you talk to Ryan about that? Did you give him that idea? I don't

:21:25.:21:29.

know. Maybe I did, maybe, I don't know. The ground today is not wet

:21:29.:21:37.

enough, but that would have been a great move if they they -- if the

:21:37.:21:40.

grown was more testing. Those two horses would have been first and

:21:41.:21:44.

second if the ground had been second if the ground had been

:21:44.:21:46.

softer than today. How do you judge the point to cut

:21:46.:21:51.

across? You have to cut across just to make a nice turn, come across

:21:51.:21:56.

now and then meet the rail. You see, on the mile-and-a-half there, I was

:21:56.:22:00.

on the mile course when I did it. That was the mile-and-a-half. I

:22:00.:22:05.

have done it a few occasions on the mile-and-a-half in the October time.

:22:05.:22:10.

Nobody ever talked about that. Nobody noticed it, but it had

:22:10.:22:14.

been... I like the way in the clip you were saying, "Come on BBC.".

:22:14.:22:21.

You have always dictated things! Well, the BBC is the big thing.

:22:21.:22:24.

They are the voice of the world, aren't they, the BBC?

:22:24.:22:27.

Those that are on it and that would be you!

:22:27.:22:33.

Yes. Neil Callum was part of that plan.

:22:33.:22:39.

He is riding in the same colours and the next race is the Queen's

:22:39.:22:49.
:22:49.:22:52.

are talking about. When did you find out that Ryan was intending to

:22:52.:22:55.

go to the far side rails? We came into the gate and Ryan might have

:22:55.:23:00.

been the last one in and he said, "What are you doing?" I said my

:23:00.:23:05.

main objective was to get my horse to drop his his bridle because he

:23:05.:23:09.

was a little bit keen. Here, you need to conserve your energy. He

:23:09.:23:16.

said, "Well, I'm going under the trees." It kind of worked out, even

:23:16.:23:20.

though he was a little bit slow away. He got up there and it didn't

:23:20.:23:25.

help that the others went off so quick. It made it harder to get my

:23:25.:23:28.

horse back. In the circumstances it kind of helped because if we were

:23:28.:23:32.

trying to get in from where we were drawn, we would have been stuck on

:23:32.:23:35.

the rough ground which was raced on the previous days and there is only

:23:35.:23:39.

enough room for four horses to keep on the fresh ground on the inside.

:23:39.:23:43.

It was fresh ground down the outside rails and it made sense to

:23:43.:23:47.

keep it simple. Briefly, what's the reaction from

:23:47.:23:52.

your run in that race, fourth place. He is a progressive horse, were you

:23:52.:23:57.

pleased with that? I was expecting more because I liked what I felt

:23:57.:24:02.

and saw at home and you know, but you know coming to Royal Ascot you

:24:02.:24:07.

have to have probably even more up your sleeve. He is a nice horse and

:24:07.:24:11.

the only thing I was worried about was coming in so inexperienced. He

:24:11.:24:16.

only had the two runs and he has got to grow up mentally. That

:24:16.:24:20.

wouldn't have done his experience, it would have done him a lot of

:24:20.:24:24.

good and hopefully in the second half of the season we will come to

:24:24.:24:31.

better light. This is only his fourth run and two

:24:31.:24:37.

miles. That must be the big question mark? He won his maiden on

:24:37.:24:43.

over a mile-and-a-half. We didn't expect him to to improve as he did.

:24:43.:24:49.

He went to a mime and six at York and got beat by a well handicapped

:24:49.:24:53.

individual of Michael Bell's. He ran early on in the week. We had

:24:53.:24:57.

the option of going for that race or this race. We thought we would

:24:57.:25:01.

come to this race and take the next leap in grade just to see, you know,

:25:01.:25:07.

is he up to the grade? And B, if he stays the two mile? If it does, it

:25:07.:25:10.

opens up more windows and if it doesn't, we can learn more about

:25:10.:25:17.

the the horse. The Newcastle win was on similar

:25:17.:25:21.

ground to this. Is he versatile on ground? I think he is versatile. He

:25:21.:25:26.

is a big, strong, galloping type. He should go through the ground

:25:26.:25:34.

quite nice. that?

:25:34.:25:40.

Sorry, Suzi. We did try our best for you! He was slow away. He

:25:40.:25:50.
:25:50.:25:54.

nearly fell over after a furlong. We know we will get plenty of stick.

:25:54.:26:01.

What about the next race. should concentrate on your hats.

:26:01.:26:04.

That's probably a good idea. Let's look at the fashion winners that we

:26:04.:26:14.
:26:14.:26:15.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 48 seconds

:26:15.:28:08.

have seen today at Royal Ascot, and lots and lots of different hat

:28:08.:28:13.

shapes at Royal Ascot. Talking about gorgeous hat shapes,

:28:13.:28:19.

this wonderful lady here has some special millinery.

:28:19.:28:24.

We have seen Annabel looking delightful earlier in the day. That

:28:24.:28:29.

is very unusual. Tell us about the inspiration of the head gear today?

:28:29.:28:33.

I walked into a little shop off the King's Road and this lady had a

:28:33.:28:37.

basic design and I looked around and I thought well, butterflies are

:28:37.:28:41.

it this season. I went and bought little butterflies and wound them

:28:41.:28:45.

round myself. So you made it yourself? Well, I

:28:45.:28:49.

can't take the whole credit. The more complicated millinery was an

:28:49.:28:53.

expert for the tweaks. What I like is how you finished off

:28:53.:28:58.

the hole look and tell me about the gloves? On Tuesday I went for 1940s

:28:58.:29:08.

vintage and I thought, you know what, they are from Accesorize.

:29:08.:29:16.

Tell us about your suit. It is very beautiful, I love the skirt?

:29:16.:29:20.

Because we have Royal Ascot dress code, I covered it up. This is a

:29:20.:29:26.

Coast design. I got a jacket from a second samples site and I got the

:29:26.:29:30.

ribbon that matched one of the colours instead of a necklace.

:29:30.:29:35.

You look lovely. You look stunning. Enjoy the rest

:29:35.:29:38.

of your day and we will catch up with you later.

:29:38.:29:41.

What I love is this wonderful lady here.

:29:42.:29:47.

Hello. Now what I have to tell everyone out there is my cup of tea.

:29:47.:29:51.

You look superb. What I love is the way you have finished this really

:29:51.:29:56.

with beautiful tailoring. Tell me about the tailoring? It is from a

:29:56.:30:01.

local shop. A local shop in Alton, called Experience. When I go in

:30:01.:30:04.

there, they know me now and they will always pull something off the

:30:04.:30:09.

shelf that's appropriate and right for my age and size.

:30:09.:30:12.

Really, the question I would like you to tell all the ladies out

:30:12.:30:16.

there is what top tip can you give the ladies? Well, I think you need

:30:16.:30:20.

to dress appropriately. You need to be comfortable for Royal Ascot and

:30:20.:30:30.
:30:30.:30:40.

you need to dress appropriately for you. This was from a Harvey

:30:40.:30:47.

Nicholls' sale. We like a bit of recycling! It is all here at Royal

:30:47.:30:50.

Ascot. CLARE BALDING: There is a simple

:30:50.:30:54.

way of working out what is going to happen in the Queen's Vase, that is

:30:54.:30:59.

to talk to Mark Johnston. This trainer has won the race six times

:30:59.:31:06.

in the last 11 years. It looks like Namibian has the best chance. What

:31:06.:31:11.

I love this year, you have gone for something different, Mark, which is

:31:11.:31:16.

the tartan on your waistcoat. You have had waistcoats made for all

:31:16.:31:20.

your lads so they match you? just here, all around the country.

:31:20.:31:27.

What is the tartan? Johnston tartan. Not Balding! Very smart idea to

:31:27.:31:33.

stand out a little more. Sum up this race for us? We are all in the

:31:33.:31:38.

same boat to some extent. None of these horses have run two miles

:31:38.:31:41.

before. I find it an exciting race to think what is going to stay the

:31:41.:31:45.

two miles. Quite often the same horse also be entered over a mile-

:31:45.:31:49.

and-a-half earlier in the week and you have to almost take a guess at

:31:49.:31:54.

it. I heard you saying Namibian is the one with the best chance on

:31:54.:31:58.

paper. He is not the certain stayer of the three. The other two are

:31:58.:32:03.

more likely to be out-and-out stayers in time. Yeah. So anyone of

:32:03.:32:07.

them could have a chance? Yes. Absolutely. We have been debating

:32:07.:32:17.

it all morning. I have been saying Eternal Heart. Kevin Darley rode

:32:17.:32:24.

five of your six winners? Didn't realise that! I think it was four.

:32:24.:32:30.

Any of these horses in the field that are similar to Sopie? Nothing

:32:30.:32:35.

like him to be honest. If you think about it, he seemed like such a

:32:35.:32:39.

lazy, slow horse that really almost looked not to be trying all the

:32:39.:32:43.

time. He was never far away in the gallops. After you won on him here,

:32:43.:32:49.

we took him to the mile-and-a-half at Newmarket and you won back in

:32:49.:32:53.

trip on him. I don't think there is any similarities here. They don't

:32:53.:32:58.

come along too often. We better let you get on. Don't leg me up!

:32:58.:33:02.

would take the ride! One more point about Mark and the way he trains

:33:02.:33:07.

and where he trains. He trains at Middleham in North Yorkshire. They

:33:07.:33:10.

go up to the high moor and it is quite, it is half the exercise

:33:10.:33:15.

getting there before they have had a gallop? There is a sign at the

:33:15.:33:20.

end of the high moor gallop which says Middleham four miles. It is

:33:20.:33:30.

all ground work, Clare. Mike's horses gallop and they keep going.

:33:30.:33:36.

It certainly pays off. We wanted to update you with the

:33:36.:33:41.

jockey and trainers. Everything affected by results from today. The

:33:41.:33:46.

highlight today was the Coronation Stakes and a fantastic performance

:33:46.:33:50.

from Immortal Verse. It was a stunning performance, made so by

:33:50.:33:55.

the strong pace in the race? They said it wasn't that strong, but it

:33:55.:34:04.

looked strong to the naked eye. He dropped his filly out, got her

:34:04.:34:09.

relaxed, typical French, how they do it, dropped her out last, let

:34:09.:34:13.

them get on with it and when he came into the straight just eased

:34:13.:34:18.

her right out to the outside and said, "Go on then!" The only

:34:18.:34:24.

trouble was he said afterwards he might have gone too soon and that

:34:24.:34:28.

was only two-and-a-half furlongs from home. She has got a fantastic

:34:28.:34:33.

turn of foot. I would think that this filly - I know she had

:34:33.:34:36.

problems at Newmarket, didn't get into the stalls. What will she have

:34:36.:34:40.

done if she had got into the stalls? The trainer didn't like it

:34:40.:34:45.

when I suggested she might be temperamental. Nothing to do with

:34:45.:34:54.

her temperament! He put me right. Unlikely to win the top jockey

:34:54.:34:58.

award of the week. Richard Hughes out in front on three. William

:34:58.:35:02.

Buick is going to be running at Newmarket tomorrow. Unlikely he

:35:02.:35:09.

will win it. Ryan Moore, Philip Makin, all on one. As for the

:35:09.:35:13.

trainers, Richard Hughes has been riding a lot for Richard Hannon and

:35:13.:35:18.

he is at the top of the table along with Aidan O'Brien. It will be

:35:18.:35:23.

tight tomorrow. Very tight who is going to finish on top. Mr Moore

:35:24.:35:29.

has two good rides tomorrow. He could get to the three and then it

:35:30.:35:34.

will come down to who rode the seconds. Ryan will hate to admit it,

:35:34.:35:39.

but he has risen a lot of seconds. That may play in his favour if he

:35:39.:35:42.

can bag a couple of winners tomorrow. We don't know the answer

:35:42.:35:47.

who is going to win it yet. Good race coming up next, the Queen's

:35:47.:35:53.

Vase. Here is Jim. A real good race. Stamina test for these younger

:35:53.:35:58.

horses, two miles, they will have to get every yard of it here. Let's

:35:58.:36:08.
:36:08.:36:42.

look at the runners and riders for Queen's Vase course. They start in

:36:42.:36:45.

the straight, and then they have a circuit ahead of them. That is the

:36:45.:36:49.

mile-and-a-half gate on the right. Running downhill, past the mile and

:36:49.:36:57.

a quarter, and all the time turning now, uphill it is. Takes a bit of

:36:57.:37:00.

getting. These younger stayers of course, these could be Gold Cup

:37:00.:37:06.

horses of the future, or they could be Melbourne Cup performers, who

:37:06.:37:11.

knows. The opening show for the Queen's Vase, Namibian is your

:37:21.:37:34.

Regent Street is now 5-1. Let's look at the favourite, this was a

:37:34.:37:40.

few moments ago as he came out on to the course, Namibian, with

:37:40.:37:49.

Silvestre De Souza. Mark Johnston and his wife thinks one of the

:37:49.:37:55.

others is his best chance. That is a very, very handsome horse. Let's

:37:55.:38:01.

look at Henry Cecil's runner in this, Solar Sky. Has had two runs

:38:01.:38:06.

so far this season. Won last time out at Haydock. You think this has

:38:06.:38:12.

a big chance? I hope he has got a big chance. He was second to World

:38:12.:38:18.

Domination on his first time he ran at Newbury. He was last in the race

:38:18.:38:23.

that day and made up a tremendous amount of ground to finish second

:38:23.:38:31.

to his stable companion. Then he went to Haydock in his maiden.

:38:31.:38:36.

rope head collar... He is a bit tricky. They only put - it pacifies

:38:36.:38:41.

horses, doesn't it? It is to get them into the stalls. It pulls on

:38:41.:38:46.

the pull of the head and he's obviously got a bit of - he doesn't

:38:46.:38:50.

like going into the stalls obviously. When he ran at Haydock

:38:50.:38:54.

and won his maiden quite convince lying, although he looked a bit

:38:54.:39:00.

green at the time. Here we have a horse who won't be as green. Aidan

:39:00.:39:04.

O'Brien, a little bit disappointing this week at Royal Ascot. This is a

:39:05.:39:09.

race, though! We talked about Mark Johnston having a great record in

:39:09.:39:14.

it. If they back one of Aidan O'Brien's in this, you know it will

:39:14.:39:24.
:39:24.:39:25.

go close. They did that with Mikhail Glinka. This has a first

:39:26.:39:31.

rate chance. This is Eternal Heart, this is the one of his three that

:39:31.:39:36.

Mark Johnston - I am sure Mark Johnston said this is the one he

:39:36.:39:40.

thinks has the best chance. The start of this race is in front of

:39:40.:39:45.

the stands. The third of the Mark Johnston trio, Richard Hughes

:39:45.:39:49.

riding with so much confidence, still got that golden armband on.

:39:49.:39:56.

Yes. It gos quite well with the colours. -- it goes quite well with

:39:56.:40:01.

the colours. If he wins this, I don't think Ryan Moore will catch

:40:01.:40:11.
:40:11.:40:12.

him. No. Those are the odds. Jim? The last few going forward. Joe

:40:12.:40:16.

Fanning rides this Eternal Heart. There's Joe. He has ridden four

:40:16.:40:23.

Royal Ascot winners. He has ridden the winner of this Queen's Vase.

:40:23.:40:28.

Two miles the trip and they are racing. And down near the inside

:40:28.:40:34.

one of the first away is Regent Street, up there though is Eternal

:40:34.:40:40.

Heart crossing over, or trying to, Qushchi is on the rail, further

:40:40.:40:43.

back Regent Street doesn't want to go, there is not a great deal of

:40:43.:40:48.

pace. Out in the centre Eternal Heart a reluctant leader from

:40:48.:40:55.

Regent Street in second, Qushchi, Halifax is out wide, just in behind

:40:55.:40:58.

them is Solar Sky and Ittirad getting up on the rail. A length

:40:58.:41:04.

away further back in the field is Borug, travelling on the inside of

:41:04.:41:07.

Namibian, two lengths away Hawaafez and out the back is End Or

:41:07.:41:17.

Beginning. They settle fully into stride and L'hermitage is last.

:41:17.:41:23.

Regent Street is pulling a bit on the outside there as they settle.

:41:23.:41:30.

Qushchi is tucked away third, then Ittirad is travelling on the inside

:41:30.:41:34.

of Halifax, right there in the centre the pink jacket of Solar Sky,

:41:34.:41:40.

they are followed by Namibian and on the rail is Mickael Barzalona on

:41:40.:41:44.

Borug. They are running downhill towards Swinley Bottom. Further

:41:44.:41:51.

back is End Or Beginning, trapped wide, Ittirad getting on the heels

:41:51.:41:55.

of runners, back second last is Hawaafez and still last is

:41:55.:41:59.

L'hermitage. Heading down past the mile and a quarter, past the nine

:41:59.:42:05.

now, and on the inside it is still Eternal Heart out wide is his

:42:05.:42:09.

stable mate Halifax, up in the centre is Regent Street, tucked

:42:09.:42:13.

away just behind them on the inside rail as they all the time go

:42:13.:42:18.

downhill is Qushchi, followed by Ittirad, who is tracking Qushchi,

:42:18.:42:22.

in the centre Solar Sky, out wider is Namibian. A length-and-a-half

:42:22.:42:25.

further back Borug, on the inside of End Or Beginning, further back

:42:25.:42:30.

in the field is L'hermitage who is going past Hawaafez as they come

:42:30.:42:33.

out of Swinley Bottom, they have six-and-a-half furlongs to travel

:42:33.:42:37.

in the Queen's Vase. On the inside Eternal Heart bidding for a four-

:42:37.:42:41.

timer, out in front here by a length to Halifax up on the outside,

:42:41.:42:49.

very deep, in the centre still there is Regent Street in a nice

:42:49.:42:54.

racing rhythm for Ryan Moore. Qushchi has had the run of the race.

:42:54.:43:01.

Further back in the field then is Ittirad on the inside of Borug, out

:43:01.:43:03.

deeper is End Or Beginning. Hawaafez from the rear starting to

:43:03.:43:08.

run now and L'hermitage is last. Only about eight lengths covers

:43:08.:43:11.

them, it is Eternal Heart on the inside of Halifax and splitting

:43:11.:43:15.

them is Regent Street. In behind them is Solar Sky, right in the

:43:15.:43:19.

centre, Namibian going well on the outside, Qushchi is still on the

:43:19.:43:23.

rail, further back is Ittirad and they are followed by End Or

:43:23.:43:27.

Beginning and in the centre Borug battling away, Hawaafez second last,

:43:27.:43:33.

L'hermitage is last. They kick for home now in the Queen's Vase, two-

:43:33.:43:36.

and-a-half furlongs out, Eternal Heart is in front from Regent

:43:36.:43:41.

Street on the outside now, Namibian and races to them quickly. Solar

:43:41.:43:46.

Sky is behind them. They are followed by Halifax, but Namibian

:43:46.:43:50.

crossing sharply to the inside rail has opened up a gap of two lengths,

:43:50.:43:55.

but here is Solar Sky putting in giant strides for Tom Queally.

:43:55.:44:00.

Namibian is fighting back, it is a ding dong struggle, 100 yards to go,

:44:00.:44:08.

Namibian is kicking back, Solar Sky the outside, Namibian! Namibian has

:44:08.:44:15.

just outstayed Solar Sky. In third is Eternal Heart, followed by

:44:15.:44:20.

Regent Street and then Halifax, a long gap in the field to Hawaafez,

:44:20.:44:24.

then End Or Beginning, Borug is behind them, Ittirad is further

:44:24.:44:29.

back and they are followed by L'hermitage, Qushchi is one of the

:44:29.:44:34.

last, in fact the last. But that was a very gritty and game staying

:44:34.:44:40.

performance by Namibian. The 7-2 favourite has prevailed in a real

:44:40.:44:44.

thriller to the Queen's Vase, the far side Namibian, near side Solar

:44:44.:44:53.

Sky. They hit the line, Namibian by a head from Solar Sky. That was a

:44:53.:44:56.

battle Silvestre De Souza beating Tom Queally. A gap to Eternal Heart.

:44:56.:45:02.

In fourth is Regent Street. In fifth Halifax. In sixth is Hawaafez.

:45:02.:45:07.

They are followed by End Or Beginning in seventh. Then in

:45:07.:45:14.

eighth as they cross the line is Borug. In ninth is Ittirad. In

:45:14.:45:18.

tenth still coming here, still got another one to come, there's

:45:18.:45:24.

L'hermitage and 11th and last is Qushchi who virtually walked across

:45:24.:45:34.
:45:34.:45:38.

the line. This colt ridden by Silvestre De

:45:38.:45:45.

Souza. Second is 10 Solar Sky, third is Eternal Heart. A neck and

:45:45.:45:54.

seven lengths the distances. 3:40.97 the time. A very happy Mark

:45:54.:45:59.

Johnston after the race. CLARE BALDING: He has such an

:45:59.:46:03.

extraordinary record in this race. It is amazing how many times he

:46:03.:46:08.

wins this race. And how much his horses find. They do respond to

:46:08.:46:15.

pressure. Silvestre De Souza, it is his 50th winner of the season but

:46:15.:46:18.

his first-ever here at Royal Ascot. The manner in which this horse has

:46:18.:46:23.

done it, he hits the front now, a big challenge coming from Tom

:46:23.:46:28.

Queally. Almost looks as if he was going to go ahead, but Namibian

:46:28.:46:34.

keeps fighting back. A real thriller to finish with? That was a

:46:34.:46:38.

thrilling race. He got beaten, well got passed by at least a head, now

:46:38.:46:45.

he is fighting back, De Souza is getting his horse to rally and get

:46:45.:46:49.

there. He's hanging across to his left, he has his stick in the right

:46:49.:46:53.

hand, but the horse was hanging to the left - ooh! That could have

:46:53.:47:00.

been a bit tricky giving that horse a last tap. You can see the smile

:47:00.:47:05.

on his face. There is a stewards' enquiry. I would like to see the

:47:05.:47:12.

head-on. It did look as though he might have given Solar Sky a bit of

:47:12.:47:17.

a bump. As the winning distance is not very long, it could make a

:47:17.:47:23.

difference. It could. At the moment, the Queen's Vase has gone to Mark

:47:23.:47:27.

Johnston again. It is one of those moments where I

:47:27.:47:33.

would like to congratulate you. I did think you were cooked a

:47:33.:47:37.

furlong-and-half out? So did I. I would suspect both horses are

:47:37.:47:44.

coming across the track. I don't know, I haven't seen the head-on.

:47:44.:47:49.

We have come from behind so it would be disappointing if they took

:47:49.:47:55.

it off us. How pleased were you with that perTor mance? I threw a

:47:55.:48:01.

lot of egg -- Performance? I threw a lot of eggs into this basket. I

:48:01.:48:06.

thought Eternal Heart was going to win it. I could clearly see a

:48:06.:48:10.

furlong out that he wasn't and Namibian has burst on the scene.

:48:10.:48:20.
:48:20.:48:20.

Again, I thought... This is your first look? Yeah. Silvestre's whip

:48:20.:48:25.

is in his right hand? It is clearly in the wrong hand. As I say, that

:48:25.:48:28.

combined with the side-on view that the other horse was in front of us

:48:28.:48:31.

and we have come back again, hopefully the result will stand. We

:48:31.:48:41.

will see. It is one to wait and see. Well done. Thank you very much.

:48:41.:48:45.

Well, there's a good shot of the winner. The crowd when they saw the

:48:45.:48:50.

replay on the big screen, there was a bit of a gasp. Let's have another

:48:50.:48:55.

look at it. The whip is in the right hand, the horse veering to

:48:55.:49:02.

the left. Now they go pretty straight. When they get near the

:49:02.:49:07.

post, then he just veers a little bit, or shifts a little bit to his

:49:07.:49:11.

left. Now as you can see, there is still a distance between them. Is

:49:11.:49:16.

he sort of intimidating him a bit to come over? He will be very

:49:16.:49:23.

unlucky to lose this. There's a bump right on the line. It might be

:49:23.:49:28.

past the line actually. This is what you really want to know. Just

:49:28.:49:34.

there. They have touched there. But I have a feeling that was a stride

:49:34.:49:41.

past the line. I still think he would be very unlucky to lose this.

:49:41.:49:48.

There he is, walking around. He's 12-1 on to keep it. I think that is

:49:48.:49:52.

- 20-1 on now to keep it. That is a pretty accurate reflection of his

:49:52.:49:55.

chances, I would say in the stewards' room. There he is. He is

:49:55.:50:05.
:50:05.:50:08.

a fine stayer, Namibian. He is by Cape Cross. This is a real stayer.

:50:08.:50:17.

There he is. A good honest day's work. Here's the full result.

:50:17.:50:24.

very game and gutsy Namibian. Looks like he has won the race. There is

:50:24.:50:29.

an enquiry on at the moment. second horse, John, Solar Sky, you

:50:29.:50:35.

know you can bet on the internet, it traded at 1-33 so somebody has

:50:35.:50:42.

had �33 on to win �1 and they have lost!

:50:42.:50:50.

Let's look now at another angle of this finish. And there is Namibian

:50:50.:50:56.

with the point - they are a long way apart. About four or five

:50:56.:50:59.

horses, they come very close but they don't touch because we have

:50:59.:51:04.

seen the head-on. Let's see how far they are off the line when they

:51:04.:51:09.

touch. They come close again, here they are, they go to the line right

:51:09.:51:18.

now and I would say - I would be very, very sure that that wasn't -

:51:18.:51:20.

there wasn't anything material there that was going to affect the

:51:20.:51:25.

result of the race in my opinion. CLARE BALDING: You can see the brow

:51:26.:51:31.

band logo that Mark Johnston has on his runners matching the logo on

:51:31.:51:36.

those waistcoats. The main thing he is concerned about is not logos or

:51:36.:51:40.

uniforms, it is whether or not this horse will keep the Queen's Vase.

:51:40.:51:44.

The chances are he will. We will bring you the result of that

:51:44.:51:50.

inquiry on our red button coverage. So for Mark Johnston, the sixth

:51:50.:51:55.

time he's won the Queen's Vase. is a fantastic record in that race.

:51:55.:52:03.

But he was a very handsome colt, wasn't he? He looked the best. A

:52:03.:52:07.

classy-looking animal. The three- year-old colts that we have been

:52:07.:52:12.

seeing here this week at Royal Ascot, they are a very good bunch

:52:12.:52:16.

of three-year-olds this year. Good- looking horses, fantastic

:52:17.:52:21.

racehorses. But we are a little bit short on the fillies. They are not

:52:21.:52:25.

as good. Not a good crop of the fillies. Depends on that last bump

:52:25.:52:29.

how far it was from the line. you have been watching our coverage,

:52:29.:52:32.

you will know we have not just got access to the stewards' room, we

:52:32.:52:39.

have also got sound. A lot of this will be down to what Tom Queally

:52:39.:52:45.

says, how much did it affect him? Intimidation comes into it. He

:52:45.:52:48.

definitely intimidated the horse. But it all depends on that last

:52:48.:52:54.

bump, if it was, how far it was before the winning post. There is

:52:54.:52:59.

only a foot difference. That would be the deciding factor for the

:52:59.:53:03.

stewards to take into consideration about altering the result. We will

:53:03.:53:08.

bring you coverage of that on our red button, coverage which is going

:53:08.:53:12.

to start shortly. Tomorrow afternoon, the feature race is the

:53:12.:53:17.

Golden Jubilee, a field of 17 declared. We won't know until

:53:17.:53:22.

tomorrow whether Delegator will run in that or not, but Star Witness

:53:22.:53:25.

hoping to become the first big international winner of the week.

:53:25.:53:30.

We are on air at 2.20pm. We will be showing you the highlights of the

:53:30.:53:33.

week and the fashion and everything that we have enjoyed through

:53:33.:53:37.

stunning, well four days so far, the weather has rather dampened

:53:37.:53:40.

everything out there, but not our spirits. Bring your coat if you

:53:40.:53:45.

come tomorrow! It is cold as well. Ryan Moore could become Champion

:53:45.:53:49.

jockey if he wins the first two races tomorrow. You think he's got

:53:49.:53:52.
