WEST Berkshire trainer Ralph Beckett celebrated his first Royal Ascot winner thanks to Kinema's victory in the Duke of Edinburgh Handicap.

The Lambourn handler was made to sweat for it after a lengthy stewards' enquiry.

But they declared 8/1 shot Kinema, a son of Galileo, had won fair and squad by a length and a quarter from Elite Army.

Day Four saw Aidan O'Brien take his tally of Royal Ascot victories to 53 with another couple of winners.

Here is a round-up of all the action...

Race 1:

AIDAN O'Brien scored his 52nd Royal Ascot winner when Brave Anna took the first race of the day, the Albany Stakes, over six furlongs.

The War Front filly, owned and bred by Coolmore Stud supremo John Magnier's mother, Evie Stockwell, was the less-fancied of O'Brien's pair in the race and won at odds of 16/1, beating Bletchley by a short-head.

The O'Brien-trained Cuff was favourite at 2/1 and finished fifth.

Seamus Heffernan rode Brave Anna, and he was aboard her when she won her maiden at the Curragh last month.

O'Brien said: "We were nearly leaving her at home, because I thought she might need seven furlongs, rather than six. Mrs Stockwell said to let her take her chance, so that's why she's here.

"She's a brave filly, and Seamus gave her a lovely ride. She's here because the ground is soft - I thought she needed seven furlongs, so I thought she might get it here on soft.

“But she's a War Front so she shouldn't be a soft ground lover. It was the same at the Curragh - she ran as second string there and came and nabbed a fancied runner.

"She was green first time out [when unplaced at Naas on her debut] and came on from that. I think she will want a mile in time."

1) Brave Anna - Aidan O'Brien 2-9-00 Seamie Heffernan 16/1.

2) Bletchley - Ralph Beckett 2-9-00 Oisin Murphy 16/1.

3) Queen Kindly - Richard Fahey 2-9-00 Jamie Spencer 13/2.

Race 2:

SIR Michael Stoute registered his 74th winner at Royal Ascot, one away from equalling Sir Henry Cecil's all-time record of 75 winners, courtesy of 7/1 shot Across The Stars in the Group Two King Edward VII Stakes.

Having been settled on the inside rail by Frankie Dettori, the son of Sea The Stars was pulled out around the furlong pole by the Italian, registering his fourth winner of the week and 56th Royal Ascot victory, to launch his run.

The three-year-old, unplaced in the Investec Derby last time, responded to Dettori's urgings and pulled clear to record a comfortable length and a quarter-victory.

Stoute said: "It was very pleasing. We always thought a lot of him.

"Saeed Suhail (the owner) was keen to go to Epsom and I could understand that. He won a Derby 12 years before [Kris Kin, 2004] but I didn't think Epsom would suit him and it didn't.

"Full marks to Kieren [Fallon, jockey] that day as he looked after him because he didn't come down the hill very well.

"This track suited him a lot better. He's a big long striding horse who is still a little impetuous. He has plenty of growing up to physically and mentally. I think he has a future.”

1) Across The Stars - Sir Michael Stoute 3-9-00 Frankie Dettori 7/1.

2) Beacon Rock - Aidan O'Brien IRE 3-9-00 Ryan Moore 7/2 Fav.

3) Muntahaa - John Gosden 3-9-00 Paul Hanagan 10/1.

Race 3:

TRAINER Karl Burke was delighted with the performance of Quiet Refection, who was given a very confident ride by jockey Dougie Costello when running out the length winner of the Group One Commonwealth Cup.

The 7/4 favourite, who is owned by the 10-man Ontoawinner syndicate, along with Hubert Strecker and Burke himself, was always travelling powerfully for her jockey and she used her turn of foot to hit the front a furlong from home.

There was a nervous moment as runner-up Kachy drifted across the track but it didn't affect any of the other runners as Quiet Reflection skated clear to land the six furlong contest.

Burke was wreathed in smiles following the race.

"I am absolutely delighted," said Burke. "It is a big relief as well because you see all your contemporaries and lads you grew up with - Richard Fahey and Kevin Ryan among others - all having winners at the big meetings.

“You are itching to have one and we have had a few near misses, so it is great to get there. Quiet Reflection is a very good filly.

“It was not the plan to be stuck in the middle like that and I was praying we didn't get a rough race. When she comes through she has a great turn of foot and it has got her out of trouble again.”

1 (8) QUIET REFLECTION Karl Burke 9st 0lb Dougie Costello 7/4 Fav.

2 (3) Kachy Tom Dascombe 9st 3lb Richard Kingscote 14/1.

3 (6) Washington DC (IRE) (Tongue Strap) Aidan O'Brien, Ireland 9st 3lb Ryan Moore 8/1.

Race 4:

JEAN Claude Rouget secured back-to-back victories in the Group One Coronation Stakes following the decisive length and three-quarter victory of the Gregory Benoist-ridden Qemah (6/1).

The daughter of Danehill Dancer travelled nicely for Benoist in the mid-division before being unleashed on the outside inside the final furlong.

The three-year-old displayed a potent turn of foot to quicken clear of her rivals and record a comfortable success, giving Rouget his second Royal Ascot winner and Benoist his maiden victory.

Her delighted trainer said: "Qemah is a top-class filly. She ran well in the French Guineas against some very good fillies. She showed real grit today and I am very happy.

"I was very confident after the French Guineas for this race because I prefer Qemah to run with a turn.

"She is a top-class filly and won the Prix de la Grotte very easily. She was very nervous in Deauville [French 1000 Guineas] and didn't run the race she had to. Today she was good in the race and won easily.

"I have no targets at the moment for her. We will look at the programme with the team, it's too early to say where she will go next."

1 (11) QEMAH (IRE) Jean Claude Rouget, France 9st 0lb Gregory Benoist 6/1.

2 (9) Nemoralia (USA) Jeremy Noseda 9st 0lb Olivier Peslier 4/1.

3 (3) Alice Springs (IRE) Aidan O'Brien, Ireland 9st 0lb Ryan Moore 8/1.

Race 5:

AFTER a lengthy stewards' enquiry, it was announced that the places remained unaltered and Kinema had given Lambourn trainer Ralph Beckett his first Royal Ascot winner.

The 8/1 shot, a son of Galileo, won the Duke of Edinburgh Handicap by a length and a quarter under Fran Berry.

A jubilant Beckett said: "You'll remember that we lost a Group One [the St Leger with Simple Verse] and Grade One [the Beverley D Stakes with Secret Gesture] last year, and that we got one back [the St Leger]. So it was a little bit of a relief [to win this], to put it mildly.

"I've been training for 17 years and this is my first Royal Ascot winner - we got beaten about the width of a cigarette paper in the first [Bletchley finished second in the Albany Stakes today] - so it's quite a relief.

"I'm delighted for a number of reasons. [These are] Richard Pegum's colours - some of you will remember Muhannak carried them to win the Breeders' Cup Marathon in 2008. He was the first man who really sent me a number of horses, so I'm absolutely delighted."

Winning jockey Fran Berry said: "My horse isn't straightforward and can lean into the right. I did my best to keep him straight. I'm delighted for Ralph."

1) Kinema - Ralph Beckett 5-9-04 Fran Berry 8/1.

2) Elite Army - Saeed bin Suroor 5-9-10 James Doyle 9/2 Fav.

3) Kings Fete - Sir Michael Stoute 5-9-09 Ryan Moore 13/2.

Race 6:

AIDAN O'Brien clocked up his 53rd Royal Ascot winner after Sword Fighter put up a brave, front-running performance to take the Queen's Vase under Colm O'Donoghue at odds of 33/1.

The Galileo colt only had a maiden win to his name from four starts, but finished third behind Ebediyin, who represented Dermot Weld in today's race, on his last start at Naas.

O'Brien said: "Colm gave him a peach of a ride. He dictated the pace lovely in front the whole way and got it absolutely spot on.

“But Colm and Seamus [Heffernan], they ride the horses day in day out and they know them, and they don't get a lot of opportunities. When they do, they don't miss. They are world class riders. Any opportunities they get you see the results day in day out. We are so lucky to have them

"Sword Fighter ran against Dermot's horse [Ebediyin] the last day in Naas and Dermot's horse just beat him.

“Donnacha told me to come here for the two-mile race - it was a mile and a half in Naas - as he thought he was crying out for further. I wasn't convinced but obviously he was right."

O'Brien also trained the 100/30 favourite, Landofhopeandglory, who finished fourth under Ryan Moore.

1) Sword Fighter - Aidan O'Brien IRE 3-9-03 Colm O'Donoghue 33/1.

2) Harbour Law - Laura Mongan 3-9-03 George Baker 8/1.

3) Twilight Payment - Jim Bolger 3-9-03 Kevin Manning 20/1.
