Ascot Gold Cup

Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot today with the main feature being the Ascot Gold Cup.

An open looking renewal with Sir Michael Stoute's Distinction having an obvious form chance and likely to start favourite.

In The Weekender Mark Winstanley is very bullish about Reefscape's chances but I'm siding with Sergeant Cecil from Rob Millman's small Devon yard. The horse has been trained with this race in mind; 9/2 is generally available and looks decent value.

In the event Sergeant Cecil finished fifth. Yeats won easily with Reefscape just beating Distinction for second place.
