Stoute and Moore: Winning pairing

Sugar Ray led Mad Rush at the line to deny favourite backers in the Duke of Edinburgh Handicap at Royal Ascot.

The 8-1 Sir Michael Stoute-trained winner held off the Jimmy Fortune-ridden 5-2 favourite by a neck.

The winner made virtually all the running under Ryan Moore, who gradually wound up the pace before withstanding the challenge of the Luca Cumani charge.

The aptly named King Charles made good late progress to take third at 18-1, a length and three-quarters back, while Young Mick earned his each-way backers a nice return at 20-1 in fourth.
