Newbury's big day on the flat: a Godolphin double and wins for local trainers Hannon & Charlton

William Buick signals his victory on Ribchester in the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury

The weather may not have been perfect, but the 12,109 racegoers who attended Newbury's Racecourse's Al Shaqab Lockinge Day witnessed racing of the highest class.  Rain had eased the ground from good to soft in places to soft later in the card.

Godolphin won the two biggest races of the day impressively.  The feature Group One Al Shaqab Lockinge, worth £350,000, with the favourite Ribchester, trained by Richard Fahey.  And the £100,000 G3roup Three Al Rayyan Stakes with another market leader, the Charlie Appleby-trained Hawkbill. Both were ridden by William Buick - a 10/1 double! But there were victories too for local trainers Richard Hannon and Roger Charlton.
