Royal Ascot coverage worked well

Commonwealth Cup

ITV’s Royal Ascot coverage struck the right note in appealing to both the racing fan and the casual observer. Ed Chamberlin looked good and knew his stuff. Jason Weaver was reliable; Francesca Cumani excelled when commenting on how horses looked; Matt Chapman was …. well, Matt Chapman. Oli Bell was a good interviewer. Speaking to a jockey straight after a ...
