The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, run at Ascot on the 23rd July, is one of the highlights on the British Flat horse racing calendar. Run over a mile and a half, it was historically a good acid test for Derby winners however this year’s Derby winner, Pour Moi, is not entered to run. It still looks a high class renewal and should be a truly memorable event.

Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years, http://tinyurl.com/6bwtlw6:
