James Fanshawe’s The Tin Man produced a moment that connections will remember forever after winning the Diamond Jubilee Stakes on the final day of the Royal meeting.
The five-year-old, who was victorious in the Group One QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes on Champions Day last year, utilised his handy position on the rail to full advantage as Tom Queally guided him to perfection to beat Tasleet and Limato in a close finish.
The Tin Man’s victory was a first Group One victory at the Royal meeting for Queally since the great Frankel in the Queen Anne Stakes in 2012.
In the Hardwicke Stakes, Aidan O’Brien recorded his 60th Royal winner with Idaho - a galant victor from Barsanti and Chemical Charge.
With Ryan Moore riding Her Majesty The Queen’s Dartmouth, it was Seamie Heffernan that showcased his skills in the saddle with a superb win.
Meanwhile it was Moore that partnered O’Brien’s earlier winner - September - in the Chesham Stakes.
Her brilliant display to comfortably beat her rivals has secured her place at the top the ante post markets for next year’s British Classics.
In the fiercely-competitive Wokingham, David O’Meara trained Out Do to a 25/1 triumph, while Snoano - also at the same price produced the goods in the Wolverton Handicap.
The final race of the 2017 meeting was won by Mark Johnston’s Oriental Fox, with the double-seeking Thomas Hobson narrowly missing out.
