THE Queen is eyeing a spectacular 199/1 treble at Royal Ascot today.
It was hoped her Majesty would make an appearance for Ladies Day and the Gold Cup this afternoon, but it is now understood she will not attend.
The hope was such that William Hill opened their market on the colour of her hat – with Blue the 3/1 favourite.
In the past, The Queen has been the one to pass over the trophy to the Gold Cup winner and it would have been great if she could do so again in her Jubilee year.
It is likely Prince Charles will take her place having attended with Camilla the past two days.
But the Queen will now keep an eye on the racing from afar with three runners, including odds-on favourite Reach for the moon.

Saga and Tactical are also running and William Hill are pricing a spectacular treble at 199/1.
William Hill Spokesperson, Tony Kenny, said: “The betting suggest Her Majesty will get to celebrate at least one winner today too.
“We make it 2/7 that any one of her three horses win, with Reach For The Moon the shortest price of those at 2/5, while a Royal treble with all three winning can be backed at 199/1.”
