The monarch has watched the racing through the week from nearby Windsor Castle.

The queen could leave the racetrack very content as she has several runners, beginning with Reach For The in the opening race, the Chesham Stakes.

She has enjoyed plenty of success at the meeting through the decades, most notably in 2013 when Estimate won the flagship race, the Ascot Gold Cup.
