THE Aidan O’Brien-trained Yeats made history yesterday by claiming a fourth Gold Cup success at Royal Ascot. Ridden by Johnny Murtagh, the 6/4 favourite kicked away at the final bend to cruise to his record win – surpassing the achievement of Sagaro in the last 1970’s. Ryan Moore’s mount Patkai (9/2) was three lengths behind in second with 11/4 shot Geordieland third.
