Mixed day for Murphy

Posted on

Irish jockey Oisin Murphy rode Alcohol Free to victory in horse racing's Coronation Stakes at Ascot in the race after being demoted to second place in the Commonwealth Cup following a stewards' inquiry.

Dragon Symbol was first past the post ahead of Campanelle in the sprint but places were reversed by stewards after it was deemed that Murphy's mount had bumped Frankie Dettori's Wesley Ward-trained ride. Victory was Dettori's 76th at Royal Ascot, while it was a 12th success for Ward.

Alcohol Free beat Snow LAntern with Mother Earth third.
