Racing from Royal Ascot
3.45 The Ascot Gold Cup
For three-year-olds and upwards over 2im. Commentary by PETER BROMLEY JULIAN WILSON says:
' French challengers have been more successful in the Gold Cup than in any other race in Britain since the war.
' Four-year-olds have won in 23 years out of 28. Most successful jockey has been Lester Piggott. He has been first past the post five times.
' So the winning formula looks to be a French-trained four-year-old ridden by Lester Piggott. Sagaro fits the bill. Pick of the British hopes looks to be fourryearold Girandole (Edward Hide), and five-year-old Zab (Joe Mercer) and Proverb (Willie Carson ).'
