Gratifying as it was to see a colt named Frederick Engels win the Windsor Castle Stakes, of all races, he may struggle to open up a new front in the class war at Newmarket today. It is true that the overall ambience at this meeting is a good deal more relaxed than Royal Ascot, both on and off the track. And the way Frederick Engels has thrived for a small, northern stable shows that his handlers need only equality of opportunity to storm the Turf's bastions of privilege. But the fact remains that he may have his work cut out to follow up in the TNT July Stakes.

Over recent years, indigenous sprinters have been made to look rather pedestrian by those schooled in other hemispheres, and yet another Australian speedball, Star Witness, is favourite to win the King's Stand Stakes at Ascot today. His connections have a novel excuse for a disappointing run last time, that he did not take kindly to an adjacent Top Gear roadshow, and any dual Group One winner Down Under is demonstrably entitled to be competitive against our rabble.

With his usual fondness for the hammy, headline-grabbing gesture, the Prime Minister has announced that the town through which coffins of dead British servicemen have been borne over the past four years is to be given a title. Wootton Bassett will soon become Royal Wootton Bassett. The honour previously granted to Leamington Spa and Tunbridge Wells (for being visited by the royal family), to the county of Berkshire (for containing Windsor Castle) and to companies like Fortnum and Mason (for providing groceries to the gentry) will now be accorded to a small town in Wiltshire in recognition for its services to national mourning.
