Lady Aurelia does it again with King's Stand win

Lady Aurelia does it again with King's Stand win”

"That was awesome. Lady Aurelia is a very special filly", purred trainer Wesley A Ward, who was welcoming home his eighth Royal Ascot victor.

Ribchester won in a course-record time, and Fahey said: "I'm delighted he won, William said he's got huge gears and said that he was never in trouble".

"He's concrete", said O'Brien, winning his 300th Group One, Flat or National Hunt.

Prominent throughout, she settled nicely racing along the far side, picked up her pace about a quarter-mile from the finish, and stormed home a three-length victor over Profitable, who won the 2016 King's Stand.

"After that we'll go to Deauville for the Prix Rothschild and then the Matron (Leopardstown)".

He has to be the best horse I have ever trained.

He hasn't really gone on from his impressive Doncaster return for me in April, and I would be anxious about fast ground for him, even if he has won on it.

Meanwhile, Sir Michael Stoute's filly Mori could deliver his trainer a 76th win at the royal meeting, which would make him the most successful handler in history.

With Order Of St George in the Gold Cup, and two outstanding Group One Friday favourites in Winter and Caravaggio, the potential for another resounding finale to the most exclusive week of the racing year is obvious.

"However, Mikael Barzalona will not look back on the race with any great pride having delivered the Andre Fabre-trained Usherette far too late and only secured third". She likes the ground and tries very hard. We went a good pace, Jessie wanted to find out a bit more about him and he was very good on the day. "Against this tough opposition and a mix of colts and fillies she has been wonderful", Munch said.

"I hope now that she will continue to improve for the rest of the season".

"We've had a lot of winners", said Hoskins, "but this is the filly we've been looking for".

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?).
