Review: Gr.1 Queen Anne Stakes (Racing Info, Racing Result, Racing Video 2019)
[Wednesday, 19 June 2019 08:27]
Last year's runner-up proved lucky the second time around when Lord Glitters under Danny Tudhope denied Beat The Bank in a thrilling finish to the prestigious mile contest. The latter is now aimed at Gr.1 Coral-Eclipse Stakes next.
One Master, a homebred 6YO Fastnet Rock mare for Lael Stables, finished third while the fancied Laurens came sixth.
Eve Houghton's Accidental Agent provided us with ample entertainment at the start, when he refused to race.
A French-bred son of Whipper owned by Geoff and Sandra Turnbull needs to be played late. Tudhope had to show his hand last.
David O'Meara trained-Lord Glitters had to fight for his win-by-a-neck. He later admitted afterwards that defeat was never an option.
