Fame And Glory Shines in Gold Cup

Fame And Glory landed a monster punt and silenced those who thought he would not get the trip as he ran out a most convincing winner of the Gold Cup.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained five-year-old was backed into a starting price of just 11-8 having been 2-1 in the morning and those who supported him had hardly any worries as he won comfortably under Jamie Spencer.

Opinion Poll ran on late under Derby-winning jockey Mickael Barzalona but could get no closer then the three lengths he finished behind the winner at 16-1 with Brigantin, another 16-1 chance, finishing a further four and a half lengths back in third.

Fame and Glory was AWESOME today. 2 1/2 mile trip and he won by 3.
What a sublime performance by Fame and Glory in today's G1 Gold Cup at Ascot!! Many people, myself included, had doubt's about whether or not Fame and Glory would stay the 2m 4f trip? But this horse stayed every bit of that trip on testing ground that probably made the horses feel like that went more like 3 miles. Ultra impressive performance. Just no other way to say it. Every horse in the field were stellar stayers in their own right. So for Fame and Glory to win so convincingly on such soft ground may make this Gold Cup win just as impressive as any that Yeats won, IMO.
