Clive Cox's sprinter makes all to land Group 1 glory at Royal Ascot

Golden Horde and Adam Kirby kept things simple in the Commonwealth Cup leading almost pillar to post to win convincingly.

Clive Cox’s exciting two-year-old lead the standside group throughout the race, with Mum’s Tipple leading a cluster in the middle.

It was just a case of pushing the button for Kirby, and when asked Golden Horde accelerated away with only Wesley Ward’s Kimari the only realistic challenger a furlong out.

Kirby’s mount was not for stopping however and never looked in trouble going to the line.

The Darley July Cup is now the likely target next month at Newmarket.
