Byline: PETER O'HEHIR

CLASSY Fame And Glory must be strongly fancied to emulate the great Yeats in today's Ascot Gold Cup.

And those doubting his stamina should note the fact that he won the Criterium de Saint-Cloud over ten furlongs as a twoyear-old.

His recent wins are not convincing evidence of Fame And Glory's ability to stay today's trip. But I expect his class to see him through, with Yorkshire Cup winner Duncan likely to chase him (Nap) Glory home. …
