Southern Hills under Ryan Moore takes the final race of the day!

Southern Hills is named after a Golf Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma and he produced a performance Tiger Woods would've been proud of by landing the final race on day two of Royal Ascot 2019, the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes.
The two-year-old son of Gleneagles ran on strongly in the closing stages of the five-furlong contest to deny Godolphin's Platinum Star to win by a half-length.
Southern Hills is trained by Aidan O'Brien, registering his 68th Royal Ascot winner and was ridden by Ryan Moore, recording a 56th Royal Ascot win - this was the pair's third success of the week.
Moore now joins Danny Tudhope at the top of the QIPCO Royal Ascot Top Jockey Award standings.
Moore said: "Southern Hills is a lovely colt who had run two very good races prior to today.
"He has loads of speed and he has a super action.
"He was in front early enough, but he wasn't for passing."
Southern Hills is from the first two-year-old crop of Gleneagles, who won the 2015 renewal of the G1 St James's Palace Stakes.
O'Brien said: "He's a fast horse. The Gleneagles offspring are fast and they are brave, which are two massive things in a horse. That's evident in his stock so far.
"He handled the hold-up [when Show Me Show Me broke from the stalls, unshipped his jockey, Paddy Mathers, and cantered away loose down the track before being withdrawn] well. He's got a good mind. They [horses sired by Gleneagles] have those traits; they have pace, they are brave and they've got good minds.
"I should have thought that five or six furlongs would be his trip, because he's got so much speed."
