2. Pedigree Insights: Andrew Caulfield on Dream Castle (GB) and his sire, Frankel (GB).

3. Video: Gary King chats to Coolmore's David O'Loughlin about U S Navy Flag (USA).
"Danehill didn’t win it [G1 July Cup], but he nearly won it. Anabaa, Starspangledbanner, Mozart, and Oasis Dream all won it. So it’s always been a very good race and it’s a great meeting; with a huge amount of breeders there so a horse always has a good profile after winning it."
