Ascot Gold Cup 2007 Result

The Gold Cup was all about Yeats and he did not disappoint with Mick Kinane giving him a perfect ride coming to take it up at the two furlong mark and only for a second did Geordieland threaten to make a challenge but when Yeats saw him coming just went on again to take the Ascot Gold Cup for a second year at a very short price. Sergeant Cecil was a big disappointment coming home well down the field.

1 Yeats (M Kinane) 8-13 fav
2 Geordieland (J Spencer) 12-1

Westerner is just sheer class and he was at his very best to win this great renewal for this fantastic race.

2 Distinction 33-1
