Olympic gold medalist Denise Lewis spent the day at Royal Ascot yesterday and was asked to present the trophy to the winner of the Jersey Stakes.
Lewis presented Aidan O'Brien's horse 'Gale Force Ten' with the trophy after a close finish in the opening race.
Lewis said: “Great day at Ascot yesterday. I was honoured to present the first trophy of the day to the winner of The Jersey Stakes 'Gale Force Ten'. A close finish but another fine win for Aidan O'Brien and his team."
Lewis also revealed that she got involved in the gambling side of Royal Ascot by suggesting that she had backed the winner in the Jersey Stakes race.
"And a little extra cash in the pocket for me too!”
But the day belonged to James Doyle who rode home three winners in three consecutive races including Al Kazeem in the feature race. Al Kazeem fought off the challenge of Mukhadram to win the Prince of Wales's Stakes.
Doyle's second, and most impressive win of the day, came in the Royal Hunt Cup. He rode Belgian Bill to victory to beat the other 27 riders. The horse was 33/1 before the race but managed to seal his second win of the day.
Doyle completed his hat-trick on Rizeena when he won the Queen Mary Stakes. Rizeena was 6/1 but came out on top against a field of 23.
The combined odds of Doyle's treble was 891-1 as he stole the show in day two of Royal Ascot.
