THE competitive Northumberland Plate is the big race tomorrow.
I will be pinning my hopes on Ingleby Spirit as an each-way fancy.
The horse was second in the Chester Cup and I reckon could go well at odds of around 16-1.
As I mentioned in last week’s column, I spent last week at Royal Ascot and thoroughly enjoyed the whole occasion.
The highlight had to be Estimate winning for the Queen.
I don’t think any of us can remember the last time she showed such natural emotion.
Not since the last time she jumped out of a helicopter have people seen her so happy and the pictures – which were beamed all around the globe – were absolutely fantastic.
