Day two of the sporting and social showpiece from the famous Ascot racecourse.

HM The Queen and other members of the Royal Family will be in attendance, with a special atmosphere guaranteed in this Diamond Jubilee year.

The highlight on the track is the mile and a quarter Prince Of Wales’s Stakes. Contested by the best horses aged four years and over, it was won last year by superstar jockey Frankie Dettori on Rewilding.

Clare Balding will host the coverage from Ascot. She’ll be joined by Willie Carson, Mick Fitzgerald, Rishi Persad, Suzi Perry, Ian Bartlett and John Parrott. Race commentary will come from Jim McGrath.

Coverage continues on BBC Two and BBC HD from 3.20pm – 5.15pm.
