shaking for a while this afternoon after winning the first four races of royal ascot including the big race of the week, and he repeated last yea r‘s race of the week, and he repeated last year's victory on board the favourite, stradivarius, that was december the gold cup at the age of 48. he wasjust december the gold cup at the age of 48. he was just there into second in the race, so no clean sweep. and thatis the race, so no clean sweep. and that is all from sportsday, coming up that is all from sportsday, coming up in the moment it's the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are sophiejarvis from the evening standard
10:41 pm
and owen bennett head of politics, cityam. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in and the tory leadership race continues to dominate the headlines. the layer versus the nhs record. less tha n the layer versus the nhs record. less than cup a mystery a proposal of the ones. boris exacts his revenge is spashed across the telegraph. mrjohnson will go head to head with jeremy hunt after michael gove is squeezed out of the race for no 10. his revenge is also slashed across the daily mail after he is accused of lending votes of his supporters tojeremy of lending votes of his supporters to jeremy hunt to of lending votes of his supporters tojeremy hunt to ensure mr gove was eliminated. the ft picturesjeremy hunt who will face front runner borisjohnson as the final two are named in the tory leadership race, after michael gove was ousted. it'sjohnson it's johnson versus hunt, it'sjohnson versus hunt, but was the result of fixed asks the guardian? a paper also reveals an apology for the homelessness minister heather wheeler after elite e—mail showed he was using racist
10:42 pm
language to describe rough sleepers. revenge is sweep for boris which caused him ruthless for killing off those hopes. so just caused him ruthless for killing off those hopes. sojust one caused him ruthless for killing off those hopes. so just one story gci’oss those hopes. so just one story across just about all of the front pages. no surprise there the big story of the night. and we kick off of the daily telegraph which of course the paper where borisjohnson writes his column and has been a bit ofafan writes his column and has been a bit of a fan is seen for him. they have taken the line that he exacts his revenge is michael gove is squeezed out, that kind of tells the story and the pictures were quite brilliant. they put him at home there and then go over in the middle just staring down wondering what might‘ve been although it's in a picture of today. this is the point that everyone thought it was going to bea that everyone thought it was going to be a final two of them and what
10:43 pm
are the implications of that. the hunt team put out a line saying don't let this become a gove, boris psychodrama that was the word they use. psychodrama that was the word they use. don't let this become a battle that goes back 30 years, they have known each other since they met in university in 1985, hunt was there at the same time but at the same social circles. we were playing at the fact that it would become a bitter battle and not about the leadership. after the last time around when michael gove was going to back boris johnson around when michael gove was going to back borisjohnson and pulled out the last minute. hunt and his supporters which present themselves asa supporters which present themselves as a cleaner candidate and not going back of the issues of three years or 30 years ago. that's the take of the telegraph and then the mirror. yes, in the mirror has a very different ta ke in the mirror has a very different take on it here. the layer versus
10:44 pm
the nhs record. the mirror or growth course no fate of these conservative party. the preview of how the next election will be fought. if boris johnson is the leader of the tory party and will be fought on credibility, it will be fought his record. 0ne credibility, it will be fought his record. one of the things i'm surprised was not talked about was boris johnson's record surprised was not talked about was borisjohnson‘s record as foreign secretary. most people will say he did not cover himself in glory. i think people will pick up on that committee a liar there was a reference to the fact that when he was a shadow university minister under michael howard in 2003 he lied to having an extramarital affair. jeremy hunt one is interesting because he is the longest health secretary we have had in country the voice felt if you know anyone who is had a bad experience hospital it is this guy's fault and that's when they are really going to focus on
10:45 pm
it. if it was gove it would be the layer versus the school record. this isa layer versus the school record. this is a preview here of how the labour party are going to paint either of these candidates and a general election. we have now got to go out around the conservative associations and of courses will be party members rather than people taking the perspective from the mirror some of them will perhaps have some searching questions about trust and credibility. they say he's a politician like no other comments of the things that would normally because of the politician like problems because of his personal life and if you think that tory members are perhaps more traditional 01’ members are perhaps more traditional or others that might cause us some problems, but with boris it's not factored in because they know he has a colourful personal life, and on his second divorce. i'm not sure how you can make that issue without making yourself slightly grubby. i'm
10:46 pm
not sure ifjeremy would do that, may be the importance of family values for example. he will paint himself as a man that you can trust, a man of competence and a man who has foreign secretary he has made a gaffe comparing the eu to the soviet union but not the things that boris johnson did. the danger is that hunter willjust johnson did. the danger is that hunter will just appear to boring and they're hunter will just appear to boring and they‘ re desperate hunter will just appear to boring and they're desperate for someone to refuse them after theresa may. teresa in trousers is the phrase thatis teresa in trousers is the phrase that is been used by some ofjeremy hunt's critics. let's have a look at the financial times which is one of those papers that will be pretty glad jeremy hunt is still in the race for now. unusual picture that they have chosen to have on the front page there. yes, they have not gone with the blonde bombshell that is borisjohnson gone with the blonde bombshell that is boris johnson butjeremy looking like he came back from a run ready for action. on that he was going to
10:47 pm
start one of his dance moves actually. but jeremy hunt will have to paint himself out. the last debates we have had i thought he had the best lines of both of them, the one on channel 4 or boris did not turn up and he said if you want to turn up and he said if you want to turn up and face us how he faced the eu leaders? i thought it was very good. one he had the other debates where he said there was a sheep farmer he spoke to worry about a own livelihood, will you sacrifice his own livelihood for your dream of downing street? boris did not know the detail of how a new deal brexit would affect a sheep farmer. that's where he will needle him get him on these little details, bring him back to earth all the time and play up the fact that he was an entrepreneur and got business experience, boris johnson has only been a journalist and as we know a journalist should not be running anything. it's have a
10:48 pm
look at the other factor in this story which has been picked up by several of the front pages if we look at the eye. dirty tricks, just gets revenge on gove. the suggestion that the revenge is notjust getting him off but the campaign of boris johnson was actually encouraging who knows what to persuade conservative and mps to back cheramie hunt rather than michael gove because his team think thatjeremy hunt will be easier to beat. prepared to be stunned, but there might be some dirty tricks in politics. i know it is hard to believe but this all comes down to when the mayor of london was knocked out there were supporters that went public and said we are going to back borisjohnson. his vote only went up by three commerce that does not make sense. surely at least five. michael lost by two votes. it suggestion that the
10:49 pm
johnson camp refute that some johnson camp refute that some johnson supporters backed him because they thought it would be an easier run againstjeremy hunt. the thing is to maybe one of those things were no orders were sent out, people could have reached this conclusion themselves in a minute have been told to do this but may have been told to do this but may have thought welcome we are going to back him here. it might be that it only takes very few people to do it so only takes very few people to do it so may be people like boris himself might have even tried to do it. does not need to be a big conspiracy is the point i'm making, onlyjust a few people. i did see one asked about this the other day saying that he was shocked at the suggestion with a slight smile playing around his face. you know this is an incredibly sophisticated electorate that knows all there is to know about tactical voting. yes, and that knows all there is to know about tacticalvoting. yes, and i'm think no one is feeling sorry for
10:50 pm
him, but he's been in politics for a long time. he would've been well aware this would happen and from day one, the very first ballot when he was miles ahead we have been aware that this was a possibility and he would've been trying, no doubt, to try and reduce the possibility as much as possible so he would have factored in the tactical voting. gove knew what he was up against inset is not cricket but it is politics. i don't think he will be too upset, i think would be upset not to be in the final ones but i don't think he will be crying foul as much as some people will, some of his supporters so they don't think there's any tactical voting going on and if they did, what can you do? interesting, and i heard that male stride who is one his main campaign of tea m stride who is one his main campaign of team saying that he believed michael and never recovered from the loss of momentum in the stories
10:51 pm
about his drug taking which emerged in your book. yes, i wrote a biography of him and it did not bring it out in time for him to still be contending for leadership, but in the book was the revelation that he admitted to taking cocaine and when the daily mail to him he went to an admitted it. it destroyed that momentum and if you looked at the leadership launches on the monday whenjeremy the leadership launches on the monday when jeremy hunt launched the leadership launches on the monday whenjeremy hunt launched yet amber rudd and penny morgan there and when gove had his lunch that day he was unable to unveil anyone new, there is no sense of momentum and that's very important in these contests. i think if he had finished the first or second ballot in second place that he might have pushed himself forward, but i don't know whether that revolution meant he did not get through, but who knows. i don't know, and i wonder what he thinks about it? some stage i'm sure
10:52 pm
we will be hearing from him. the guardian also, it was the result fixed? we all move on from all of this, it's those hundred 60,000 conservative members making their decision. do you think any of these questions about how we reach the final ones are going to continue to resonate or will the party just simply move on from this?” resonate or will the party just simply move on from this? i think the party will move on. if there had been the result of fixing boris was oni been the result of fixing boris was on i think there would be. but if you look at surveys yes there is support for michael, but not overwhelming. i think there's fairly similarto overwhelming. i think there's fairly similar tojeremy overwhelming. i think there's fairly similar to jeremy hunt. and overwhelming. i think there's fairly similar tojeremy hunt. and i think people will move on from this that i don't think michael gove will make a big thing of it. if he was and called do var and might move on but i think we will move on pretty quickly. it will be difficult to prove anything. 0ne quickly. it will be difficult to prove anything. one of the other stories also on the guardian front
10:53 pm
page which is talking about philip hammond who is the speech was halted by climate protesters in the midst of grandiose surroundings of the mansion house earlier this evening. yes, they were waiting for the latest missive and perhaps final missive because it looks like be shuffled out. then there all the protesters of climate change and philip hammond quipped which is committed to a zero carbon economy by 2050 and obviously the climate change protesters think it should be a lot quicker and the government should act a lot quicker on this, but what was lost in this speech was that he said no deal drugs that would leave the economy permanently smaller, notjust would leave the economy permanently smaller, not just set would leave the economy permanently smaller, notjust set us back in terms of growth would take a while, but it would leave the economy permanently smaller. this was a real warning to boris johnson permanently smaller. this was a real warning to borisjohnson and remember the tories have not got
10:54 pm
majority in parliament, they were likely support of the dup, it only ta ke likely support of the dup, it only take a handful of them to vote against the government if they try to put the deal thrills to bring about a no—confidence vote and so borisjohnson if about a no—confidence vote and so boris johnson if it about a no—confidence vote and so borisjohnson if it become spy minister has to work at how he gets him back inside. clearly a man who knows he is on his way out and feels he is no longer bound by the constraints. speaking his mind, he was very strong in saying look, we've got this head room there that is there to deal with a no—deal brexit but if that is gone and there's really no back—up left there and it's going to be taking money away that could be spent on other projects, and he's not one of the most outspoken voices that we have been hearing, but that warning is going to resonate. if you frame it
10:55 pm
as come of this but i could go to no deal or schools or hospitals than that will resonate with people. hammond has spoken out quite a lot, but done in a subtle way. he does it at select committee hearings and goes under the radar, but he does go offa goes under the radar, but he does go off a little bit and i know that some people in the government, some ministers felt very annoyed that boris would say something out of line and we get a rebuke, but when hammond would say something he did not get the same discipline and his resentment did build up who is really a bogeyman for brexiteers who think the reason we don't have a deal or the one we got was so bad it was because of people like him who we re was because of people like him who were refusing to properly invest and prepare for a no—deal brexit and give us a good negotiating position. fascinating and it will be fascinating to see what the new prime minister, if it does indeed to be borisjohnson prime minister, if it does indeed to be boris johnson orjeremy prime minister, if it does indeed to be borisjohnson orjeremy hunt if they do the balancing act or go for
10:56 pm
a brexiteer cabinet when that's all we have time for, this time around and that's it for the papers at this hour. sophie and owen will be back another look at the papers. to join us then. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co. uk/papers and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you 0wen. and we will be back for further discussion at half past 11. hello there. conditions are set to warm up hello there. conditions are set to warm up across hello there. conditions are set to warm up across the whole country this weekend and into next week you could turn really quite hot across the southern areas with an increased chance of sundry downpours. back to the here and now friday looking like sunny spells and a few showers around, most of the showers there
10:57 pm
will be across the north because we have low pressure and a bit closer to together here. and largely dry start for much of england and wales. most of the showers across scotland 01’ most of the showers across scotland or ireland if you have the one through the morning, but into the afternoon they should tend to ease down to become confined to the northern aisles in many places dry across the south. feeling a bit warmer, $20 21 degrees for there was around the mid teens again. as we head for a friday night into saturday morning high pressure continues to build and kills up most of the showers. later winds and mist and fog and spots across the north and fog and spots across the north and further south into 12 degrees. into the weekend and it's looking drive for many of us, lots of sunshine around and will be warming
10:58 pm
up sunshine around and will be warming up and so southeast winds week quite fresh at times and with a sunny spells he will turn much warmer. could see a nice isolated shower in most could see a nice isolated shower in m ost pla ces could see a nice isolated shower in most places dry, high teens across the north with 21 or 22 in the south. this is the pressure chart for sunday and high—pressure damaging the scene for most but this low pressure will slowly be encroaching into the southwest into the far west of the country. destabilising the atmosphere and for much of the country it should stay dry with sunny spells withdrawing this warm and humid air and will be even warmer on sunday. 25 degrees in the southeast and 21 across the north. but all the ingredients are in place there with increasing warm and humid air mass moving up from the near continent with low pressure trying to move in and there's a
10:59 pm
chance of heavy and thundershowers in places.
11:00 pm
this is bbc news. the headlines. the final two. borisjohnson will face jeremy hunt in the race to be the next prime minister after michael gove was eliminated in the latest tory leadership ballot. well, i'm the underdog in this race. in the underdog right from the start, and i like prove people wrong. ——i start, and i like prove people wrong. —— i am the underdog. the chancellor, philip hammond's speech is delayed. victory for campaigners in their bid to make the government reconsider who it sells arms to and where they are used. and andy murray delights the crowd as he makes a winning comeback, after
