O’Brien quick off the mark with opening-day Ascot double
Hitting the ground running has not quite been the style of Aidan O’Brien at Royal Ascot in recent seasons – but an opening-day double at this year’s meeting swiftly changed such an approach. Having failed to saddle a winner on the first day of the meeting for the past two seasons, there might have b

McCullagh doubles up at Sligo
Noirvento rattled home in the closing stages of the Tote Supporting Irish Racing Handicap to give jockey Niall McCullagh an 87-1 double at Sligo. The 10-1 chance got up in the final strides to pip May Remain by a head for handler Tracey Collins. McCullagh said: “It’s like buses, you’re waiting for a
Fizz bidding to repeat Tipperary sparkle at Wexford
Effernock Fizz will bid to repeat her recent surprise Tipperary success with victory at Wexford on Wednesday. The Katy Brown-trained four-year-old has gone up over a stone for winning by 15 lengths off the front at 66-1. A change of tactics to racing prominently did the trick there, so her rivals wo
Point made in King’s Stand thriller
Blue Point confirmed his superiority over Battaash to win back-to-back renewals of the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Lord Glitters shines brightest in Queen Anne
Last year’s runner-up Lord Glitters just prevailed in a blanket finish to the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot. David O’Meara’s grey, who disappointed badly last time out in the Lockinge Stakes, was winning at the highest level for the first time in his career. His fortunes could not have contrasted
Magical and Sea Of Class just two of the big names in Prince of Wales’s showdown

Back-to-form Plinth delivers at Kilbeggan
Plinth’s victory in the Carmel Fay Memorial Novice Chase was the highlight of a 120-1 Kilbeggan double for Niall Madden, Joseph O’Brien and JP McManus. Last successful in the Grade Three Grimes Hurdle at Tipperary in 2017, the nine-year-old gelding had been out of form of late. But sent off at 10-1
I Can Fly must concede weight in Duke of Cambridge
I Can Fly will try to concede 3lb to all her 16 rivals in Wednesday’s Duke of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot. Aidan O’Brien’s four-year-old won the Boomerang Stakes on Irish Champions Weekend last season at this same Group Two level – which makes her task harder this time. Sir Michael Stoute has a

Blackmore back in the winning groove at Downpatrick
