- Remarkable rides help Moore to ninth Royal Ascot jockeys’ title
- Naval Crown leads one-two for Appleby in Platinum Jubilee
Ryan Moore ended a four-year wait for this ninth Royal Ascot jockeys’ title here and did so with winners from opposite ends of his race-riding repertoire. Broome, a 6-1 shot, made all the running to see off a field including Hurricane Lane, last year’s Irish Derby winner, in the Hardwicke Stakes before Moore pulled off a remarkable needle-threading exercise aboard Rohaan in the Wokingham Handicap, finding a way through a wall of horses as he went from nearly last to first in the space of a furlong.
Rohaan’s victory, for the second year running in this ultra-competitive handicap and under top weight of 9st 12lb for good measure, moved Moore to a total of seven winners over the meeting, three clear of his nearest pursuers, William Buick and Danny Tudhope, with only two races to run.
