The Queen's horse, Perfect Alibi, was victorious in the Maiden Fillies' Stakes at Newbury on Tuesday afternoon.

It was fitting that Tom Marquand, resplendent in the crimson and purple royal silks, rode a winner for the monarch in the week of the Platinum Jubilee.

The William Haggas trained filly made the early running and held off late pressure from River of Stars and the pre-race favourite Eternal Pearl.

It was the three-year-old's first win on her third outing - she's scheduled to race at Royal Ascot on June 16.

It was Marquand's twelfth winner in the Queen's colours.

There was success for Lambourn based trainer Charles Hills in the 14:10 BetVictor Maiden Stakes with Sydneyarms Chelsea.

It was the two-year-old's debut - she's scheduled to return to Newbury for the Super Sprint Stakes on July 16.

William Buick's mount was held up towards the rear over much of the first three furlongs but showed an impressive turn-of-foot to win from Hungerford trainer Clive Cox's John Chard VC.

Tom Marquand rode a second winner of the day in the 16:10 BetVictor Handicap Stakes aboard Hebrides.

It was the three-year-old gelding's third consecutive win - he pipped Charles Hills' Dream Show in a dead heat.

It was Hebrides first trip at seven furlongs - it remains to be seen where in-form trainer William Haggas will send him next, but he might have eyes on a Group 1 race later in the summer.

Marquand made it a hat-trick of wins in the final race of the day, the 16:40 Michael Andrews Handicap Stakes, aboard Sergeant Tibbs.

It was Sergeant Tibbs' maiden win on his seventh outing.

It was the four-year-old's first time running at six furlongs, and he looked well suited to the shorter distance.

It was a first win for Stockbridge trainer Robyn Brisland in 47 races - his last win came over a month and a half ago at Bath.

There was also a treble for Richard Hannon and Pat Dobbs.
