A Royal Ascot winner would be the icing on the cake for Queen Elizabeth II in her Platinum Jubilee year.

The horse racing fanatic didn’t have a runner in any of the season’s four Classics so far – the 2000 Guineas, 1000 Guineas, Epsom Oaks and Epsom Derby – but Lizzie is set to field some of her stable stars at the five-day festival.
