The former Tory leader said the day was “absolutely wonderful”.

“She’s a very old friend and we came to cheer her on,” he told the Racing Post. “We didn’t know she was going to win, but luckily my wife told me to bet, so happy days.”

He gazed out into the glorious sunshine with a pair of red binoculars, matching his wife’s dress made by Cefinn, Samantha Cameron’s clothing brand.

While Spearman worked for Samantha Cameron, she was in charge of her diary and helped choose her outfits.

Spearman said his horse today was “amazing and I was very lucky to ride him.”

The race she won today raised £50,000 for charity.
