Nick is joined by ITV broadcaster Rishi Persad to discuss the latest news and events in the racing world. Bringing you this podcast from Day 3 of Royal Ascot, they lead with the big story from yesterday, the success of State of Rest in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, a first Royal Ascot victory for trainer Joseph O’Brien, who joins Nick to discuss, and for rider Shane Crosse, widely praised for his tactical acumen on the winner. Nick and Rishi also consider the varying fortunes of International riders Irad Ortiz and James MacDonald, look ahead to Stradivarius in the Gold Cup, and ask whether the Queen’s Reach for the Moon has a straightforward task. Freddie Meade, co-trainer of Zechariah, also drops in to share the agony of going down in the week’s tightest finish with his name on the license for the first time.
