I have some questions about Royal Ascot .....can anyone explain please?
    (1) Wed- The Royal Hunt Cup is classed a 'Heritage Handicap' with total value ?100,000.............On the same card The Sandringham Handicap a 'Listed Race' with total value ?50,000. That seems very odd to me, as I consider the lesser race to be the L.R. yet that is the race with Black Type. Why is this?
      (2) The Prince of Wales's is so called...why is it not simply the Prince of Wales Stakes? After all, the Queen Ann Stakes is not called the Queen Ann's Stakes. I know I am nit-picking but I would just like to know!
        (3) Finally, I always remember when turning into the straight a bell rang out in the stands. It added to the excitement. What has happened as I haven't heard it all week? Thanks
