The rich and the famous may come to Royal Ascot, but so too do many thousands of people from all walks of life. Everyone is welcome at Royal Ascot. With pay-on-the-day admission costs as little as £15 in the well-equipped Silver Ring (sold out Thursday) or just £3 for the Heath Enclosure, it is no surprise that people come from miles around to be part of the event.

There is a great tradition of superb hospitality at Royal Ascot but it extends far beyond the marquees and private boxes. Among the most familiar sights of Ascot week are racegoers on the heath enjoying picnics or feasting from the wide range of catering outlets in the middle of the course.

There is something on offer to suit every taste and pocket at Royal Ascot, from five-course ą la carte menus to fish and chips. Food and drink are all part of the Royal Ascot experience, as much on the heath and in the Silver Ring as in the Royal Enclosure restaurants.

"We made several improvements to the Silver Ring last year and it continues to offer great value for money. So does the Heath of course, which is such a popular place to relax, picnic and watch the racing for just £3," said Ascot's Chief Executive, Douglas Erskine-Crum.

However visitors choose to experience Royal Ascot, nobody will forget an event which occupies such a special place in the annual diary of great British occasions. The dramatic kaleidoscope of colour on the racecourse can be breathtaking and no other sporting fixture can offer its visitors such a varied experience and boast such a broad appeal.


Christopher Spence, Senior Steward of the Jockey Club, said today:

"In light of media comment this morning I should like to make clear the Jockey Club's position. Acting in the best interests of all racing is central to our philosophy and drives all of our thinking and our action.

"At yesterday's BHB AGM, Peter Savill said in his presentation "the offer to Go Racing remains open, but the ball is firmly in their court." I understand that there is movement from Go Racing on the outstanding issues, so it is important the BHB Board should have the opportunity to examine the final position and to consider the options, as, whatever the outcome, it will have a major impact on the future of British racing. Should the Board decide, in the light of all the facts, not to grant a licence to Go Racing for its pre-race data, then everyone involved should respect that decision and work together to try and achieve a better arrangement for racing.

"The whole negotiating process has been far from ideal, but I should like to emphasise the Jockey Club has always promoted the direct involvement of the BHB in negotiations because of the significance of pre-race data."


Jockey Club Appeal Board Hearing to be Heard on Monday 18th June 2001

2.30pm - Neville Callaghan

The Appeal Board of the Jockey Club will consider, on 18th June 2001, an appeal lodged by Neville Callaghan, the trainer of PORT ST CHARLES (IRE), against the decision of the Disciplinary Committee on 11th May to find him in breach of Rule 155 (ii) and to fine him £1,000 when he ran the gelding in the Thoroughbred Investments Handicap Stakes on 3rd May. The Disciplinary Committee had also found Jimmy Fortune, the rider of PORT ST CHARLES (IRE), to be in breach of Rule 158 and suspended him from riding for seven days and suspended PORT ST CHARLES (IRE) from running for 40 days.


The Amanda Perrett-trained Tillerman will run in the Group Two Cork and Orrery Stakes over 6f at Royal Ascot, in preference to the Royal Hunt Cup.

Pulborough-based Perrett said today: "He will be declared for the Cork and Orrery and runs in that in preference to the Hunt Cup.

"Richard Hughes has ridden the horse at home and I presume he will be aboard."

The five-year-old In The Wings horse will be attempting 6f for the first time.


Captain Steve, winner of this year's Dubai World Cup at Nad Al Sheba, is set to return to action in the $750,000 Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs tomorrow.

The four-year-old Fly So Free colt faces seven rivals tomorrow, including Travers Stakes winner Unshaded, whom he must concede 5lb to.

So far in his career, Captain Steve has amassed $6,527,156.
