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 ).'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
