very very patient he takes his time he adores horses when they're hit top farm you know it's just another half that's just improved out of the oldest world but he's an absolute gem he's quiet value just the same what he plays it down a little bit but he's very very ambitious down underneath congratulations to Michael and walking into the winner's enclosure ed for the 76th time in his career here at Royal Ascot Sir Michael firstly congratulations on becoming the winning most trainer at this prestigious meeting her how do you feel now yes well it's a release because we were stuck on it last year but as I said the other night you know Henry did most of his training when it was a four-day meeting so I've had an advantage and you know nobody respected him and him rather than I did as a trainer I took us through the race firstly because he stuffed it out very well yes I mean come along we're here last time and maybe watch movies everybody bets now but we've beaten the others comprehensively you know he's a very consistent brave sound horse that's what he is I asked you beforehand whether it improved seven legs is there still more to come from this one well that would do when we look through your CV the illustrious role of honour – you've had your first winner came here in the in the late 70s what is it about this place that is so special to you – Michael I think this was the original owner to be honest and we've been very lucky to have got a lot of nice horses over the years and a huge well done from all of us here at ITV racing you drove onto the staff you know they put a lot of work into horses letters congratulations from all of us at I to be racing – Michael thank you very much and a magnificent moment for James doll who's won this race before James this was a superb performance were you surprised at how well you were going and compared to the cracks when turning into the straightaway and see even after going a furling was under pressure to hold this pitching uneasy so it was fine of the cakes all the way up from swingy bottom to the home turn I was traveling all over him it was just a case of hanging on but I was kind of in the back of my mind I know this wolf stays along the half as well so I still watched still wanted to press the button early enough and so it's so tough and fair place everyone that's a Michaels and a big bit caught up to

  1. Does not travel or got the speed of Enable, he's very good on soft ground over over 10 F, but probably needs 12 F on anything better than good to play to his strengths, think we will see a different horse when he steps back up to 12 F, people just got carried away with that run on soft ground in the champion, just did not warrant being rated above Enable who showed the same brilliance on different goings and tracks, there is no doubt Enable would have run that field ragged in the Champion given her proven stamina, speed and indifference to ground conditions or tracks – she's the full package for a middle distance horse – Cracksman got his quirks.

  2. Sir Michael Stoute and the late, great Sir Henry Cecil began the day tied at 75 for the most number of winners by a trainer all-time at the royal meeting. With this win and another later in the day in the G3 Jersey Stakes, Sir Michael Stoute now stands alone a top the all-time leaders list by a trainer with 77 royal meeting wins to date. Congrats Sir Michael. Well done indeed!
