APRES MIDI gets back to winning ways at Windsor under Harry Bentley, the daughter of Galileo had slightly lost her way this season after a very promising first run back so we were all delighted to see her get back into the winners enclosure.

RAYDIANCE took the honours at Ascot having only his third racecourse start and his first at Listed level when winning the Pat Eddery stakes on Saturday battling hard in the soggy conditions under a fine ride from Jim Crowley.
