American filly Lady Aurelia wins again at Royal Ascot

American filly Lady Aurelia wins again at Royal Ascot”

Taking place this year from June 20-24, Royal Ascot will feature 19 graded stakes races and nearly £6.6m (€7.5m/$8.4m) in purses.

Sweltering conditions at Royal Ascot forced organisers to relax the strict dress rules in the prestigious royal enclosure for men dressed in top hat and tails.

The race meet began with a minute's silence to remember the victims of the Grenfell Tower blazer, and the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester.

Royal Ascot has a reputation for sartorial elegance, and the styles and fashions on show often gain as many column inches, and nearly as much air time, as the races.

Hannon said: "I thought he was off the bridle a bit early and I was a little anxious that he was going to run a moderate race and finish fourth but I've got a lot of confidence in this horse and I'm delighted". It's fantastic to come here and see clients and friends and have a glass of champagne.

We are going to leave you with this pretty entertaining series of shots of Sophie, Countess of Wessex, almost falling on Kate in her carriage (yes, you ride a carriage to this thing, what did you expect?).

She said: "I've heard so much about Royal Ascot, my family are all big fans of horse racing and I practically grew up at the race track back home, so coming here is so exciting".

The Queen marked her official birthday on Saturday by issuing a statement acknowledging the "succession of awful tragedies", and observed a minute's silence before the Trooping the Colour ceremony began.

Royal Ascot is a five-day race meeting at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire.

Kate Middleton, 35, wore an extremely similar outfit to Royal Ascot today (20 June) as she did to the same event past year - but looked just as resplendent and stylish.

So far 2017 indicates nothing is beyond the capacity of the remarkable woman based in Moone who in March won the Cheltenham Gold Cup with her first runner in the race and shortly afterwards landed a first Irish Grand National. Having thought the four-year-old was a good thing for this valuable prize after he won the Lockinge at Newbury on his reappearance last month, I have to say confidence is waning, writes Charlie McCann.

"Riding at Royal Ascot obviously adds a little extra pressure for a jockey".

The 10-furlong trip is a question mark, but he did win the 2015 Secretariat Stakes in America over the distance and Ryan Moore certainly knows how to win from the front with this horse and should judge his fractions to perfection.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived during the Royal Parade, after the Queen, before the start of racing.
