  2. Frankel son wins at Ascot

    There was a first Royal Ascot triumph for an offspring of the legendary racehorse Frankel as Atty Persse won the King George V Stakes .

    Atty Persse (7-1), named after a former British champion trainer, was ridden superbly by young jockey Kieran Shoemark for trainer Roger Charlton.

    It was a fifth win of the week for Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin team who enjoyed a 1-2 in this race, with First Nation finishing second.

    Frankel triumphed in all 14 of his races during a stellar career, including two victories at Royal Ascot.

    He won his final contest at the Berkshire course in October 2012 before being retired for a breeding career.

  12. Royal Ascot - Gold Cup countdown

    16:20 BST - Commentary, BBC Radio 5 live

    Cornelius Lysaght

    BBC horse racing correspondent at Ascot

    Now that the Aidan O'Brien Royal Ascot 2017 bandwagon is rolling, there will be a groundswell of support around Order Of St George, to be ridden by Ryan Moore, in the Gold Cup (16:20 BST).

    Like so many horses trained by O'Brien for the Coolmore operation, this is a son of super stallion Galileo and really impressed this day 12 months ago.

    However, he also came to Ascot last autumn and finished fourth. All three horses in front of him that day are due here this afternoon as is the redoubtable stayer Big Orange, plus Torcedor who defeated Big Orange at home in Ireland in April.

    You can check out the card for the big race on the BBC Sport website, with commentary on BBC Radio 5 live.

  15. Dramatic win for Coronet at Ascot

    Coronet swooped late under Olivier Peslier to win the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot for trainer John Gosden.

    The Sky Is Blazing had blazed a trail, opening a big lead early in the race, but his rivals pounced in the closing stages.

    Hertford Dancer, who finished third, mounted a challenge before favourite Mori looked set to be the first offspring of legendary racehorse Frankel to win at the meeting

    But he came second after being overhauled by the grey Coronet (9-1).
