Ascot Racecourse will welcome around 300,000 spectators over the coming week as the world's best racehorses compete in Berkshire.

The Queen, who has not missed a day of Royal Ascot racing since her coronation, is again expected to attend all five days.

Stradivarius claimed victory in a thrilling renewal of the Gold Cup on Thursday as Frankie Dettori clinched his 60th Royal Ascot victory aboard the 7-4 joint-favourite.

But there is still plenty of action to get stuck into on the final day of Royal Ascot.
