The famous Royal Ascot meeting will begin with a minute's silence following the recent death of legendary trainer, Sir Henry Cecil.

Cecil died aged 70 last week after training a record 75 Royal Ascot winners and his widow, Lady Cecil, plans to have runners every day of the meet.

It is expected that over 280,000 people will attend the Ascot meeting over the five days, with the Queen being one of those.

The Queen will, however, be without the Duke of Edinburgh who only left hospital on Monday following an exploratory stomach operation.

The meet has a total of 30 races over the five days and is renowned around the world as a carnival of colour, and there is hope that it will lift horse racing following recent doping and corruption scandals.

Recently, Newmarket trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni was banned from racing for eight years after admitting doping several horses.
