Royal Ascot 2015 winners images…..excitement captured by Peter Mooney’s exclusive photos

BURATINO has been in the Godolphin team a matter of days but showed amply why Sheikh Mohammed was interested with a power-packed surge to win the Coventry Stakes. RELATED LINKS Race result The 6-1 winner was making his debut in the Godolphin blue having transferred from the ownership of the sheikh's son, Sheikh Hamdan, in whose colours he showed similar turbo-charged abilities when winning at Epsom on Derby Day. William Buick kicked for home around a furlong out having been all too visible sitting very comfortably in the headlong rush up the home straight, and though chased by 7-2 runner-up Air Force Blue was never in danger of being caught. Buick, riding his first season as Godolphin retained rider along with James Doyle, was delighted with the winner who carried the second colours behind Round Two, the 9-4 favourite trained for Godolphin in Ireland by Jim Bolger. "He's come on for every run and travelled so well," Buick said of the Mark Johnston-trained colt. "It's huge to get a winner here so early on and I'm very pleased to get it for my boss and the team. He's the most exciting two-year-old who's around at the moment." Johnston was welcoming Royal Ascot win number 38, and said: "It is wonderful they way he swept past them. "I always had my feet on the ground and said you had to look at the bare form but stepping him up in trip has been the key. William has now ridden him three times and he says he has given him a better feel with each run." Eltezam came home third at 12-1. Round Two was prominent to half way only to weaken. Aidan O'Brien, trainer of Air Force Blue, said: "He was a little bit green still but we think he's a horse to look forward to. In an ideal world we would have liked him to have had another run, it was only his second start but he's run a fair race." William Hill believe the Classic potential of the first two home is equal, bracketing Air Force Blue and Buratino as their 16-1 joint favourites for the Qipco 2,000 Guineas next season.12 June 2015;  BURATINO, William Buick up, overcomes Air Force Blue, Ryan Moore up, to claim The Coventry Stakes at Ascot.  © Peter Mooney, 6, Cumberland Street, Dun Laoghaire, Co.
