Trip To Paris wins Gold Cup to highlight 3rd day of Royal Ascot

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015


Trip To Paris made a late charge for glory to win the showpiece Gold Cup on the third day of Royal Ascot on Thursday.

The 12-1 shot, with Grand National-winning jockey Graham Lee on board, finished powerfully against the far rail and got up to beat Kingfisher by a length and a quarter.

Previously unbeaten favorite Forgotten Rules had hit the front passing the two-furlong marker but finished third.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has attended the meeting all week.
