The Queen’s winner at last year’s Royal Ascot, Estimate, ran again and lost the Gold Cup by a neck in what sounds like it was a very exciting race. That must be disappointing for her, but apparently the fillies in that field can run it several years in a row, so hopefully she’ll have another go next year and can HOLD this sucker rather than just gaze into it and wish she had bookends. Edited to add pics of Sophie SCREAMING home the Queen’s horse.
