Royal Ascot Ladies Day 2018 featuring the Ascot Gold Cup

Race 4 – The Gold Cup (Group 1)

Thursday 21 June 2018

               

 

I spent the entire time, apart from lunch, standing on the steppings

overlooking the Parade Ring and, latterly, the Winners’ Enclosure

 

In the Parade Ring

 

I have captured all 9 runners, either before or after the race;

there were no non-runners
