Dettori ruled out of Ascot with arm injury

Taking place this year from June 20-24, Royal Ascot will feature 19 graded stakes races and nearly £6.6m (€7.5m/$8.4m) in purses.

We've teamed up with BetVictor to preview the day's racing. Once springing a surprise in the 1000 Guineas Stakes at the start of last month, she followed up that win with a triumph in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and punters clearly consider her the banker of the festival.

Last but not least, Best Odds Guaranteed promotion is available on every single race, making sure you are always paid at the best odds. Trained by Richard Fahey for Godolphin, Ribchester is out of the Marju mare, Mujara.

"He's an incredibly versatile horse and, while it's not been long since Epsom, we've been happy with what he has done since then", O'Brien said. She pulled six pounds from the 4-year-old filly Marsha, who was third, a head behind Profitable, as the surprising favorite over Lady Aurelia in England.

Australian Michelle Payne, the only female jockey to have won the Melbourne Cup, came fifth on outsider Kaspersky.

Kate Middleton, 35, wore an extremely similar outfit to Royal Ascot today (20 June) as she did to the same event past year - but looked just as resplendent and stylish.

"My most exciting ride of the week is aboard Dancing Star in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, the big race on the Saturday and one of eight QIPCO British Champions Series races at Royal Ascot".

American trainer Wesley A. Ward has entered 10 horses at Royal Ascot as part of the largest contingent of US runners to compete at the prestigious racing festival staged just outside London.

Jean-Claude Rouget's filly hit the mark in the Coronation Stakes at this meeting a year ago before going on to add the Prix Rothschild to her CV.

How the new Apple iPhone could help combat 'the new drunk driving'
Some of the content in Control Center is not customizable and is there by default, but you can add a number of new features to it. I'll concentrate on mobile device management features in iOS 11 , but first I want to go over some of the general announcements.

The greatest speed achievement seen previous year, and indeed one of the most astonishing racing performances of the modern era, belonged to Stateside sweetheart Lady Aurelia. Goldream, who captured this event in 2015 and who hasn't won a race since October of 2015, aims to regain his title in here for trainer Robert Cowell.

Hot favourite Ribchester claimed top honours in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

"He has an American pedigree and the soft going did not suit him".

O'Brien has two other hopes in the St James's Palace Stakes and one of them, Lancaster Bomber, will score heavily too in the evocative stakes.

When you call your horse Churchill then nothing less than victory will do - but the double classic victor won't have it all his way in the showpiece St James's Palace Stakes. But considering there are just 30 Royal Ascot races in all these are undeniably remarkable times in terms of strike-rate from this country. Regular jockey Ryan Moore returns.

Ward has 10 entries at the prestigious meeting staged just outside London, as part of the largest contingent of US runners - 14 - to compete at Royal Ascot.

Their first major clash of the week will occur when 2,000 Guineas one-two Churchill and Barney Roy lock horns again.

Just over 55% of money staked in the race during June has been on Barney Roy, accounting for well over double the amount placed on the favourite, Churchill.

His best effort might have been when narrowly failing to reel in Minding in the QEII but he has returned this year better than ever. He gets the trip and that makes him a good horse.

Post time for the St. James's Palace Stakes has been set for 11:20 p.m. ET.
