“It was hard work out there today, but he enjoyed himself and handled the ground really well and he jumped well. This is just a practice for the days ahead when he should make a three-mile chaser and I hope he might be a smart one at the end of the day.”

Clerk of the Course for Newbury Racecourse Keith Ottesen said: “We were absolutely delighted to see Her Majesty’s horse win the first race on Sunday afternoon.

“Everyone across the site was really cheering Kincardine home after learning that Her Majesty had tested positive for COVID-19 and we very much hope she was watching and makes a speedy recovery.

"This was also double win for her, as she also bred the horse.”
