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 ).'
The quiz game devoted to those days of not so long ago when music was melodic, lyrics were lyrical and a record player was simply called a gramophone!

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.
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.
