Ceiling Kitty: Queen Mary winner

Ceiling Kitty: Queen Mary winner

Ceiling Kitty claimed a fiercely-run Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot for Tom Dascombe.

Although beaten on her first couple of starts, the youngster came good with victories in a Kempton maiden and a Listed race at York.

Dascombe had a much better fancied filly in the Group Two contest in the shape of Upward Spiral, but that one could only finish fourth as Ceiling Kitty claimed top honours at 20-1.

Showing plenty of speed from the outset, Richard Kingscote's mount passed the post with a length in hand over the fast-finishing Hoyam, almost breaking the course record.

Hairy Rocket was the same distance away in third.
