Queen Mary Stakes
One More Olly 0.5pt EW 33/1 5 places B365 – Wesley Ward will be trying to take this race for the 5th time but we saw yesterday how difficult it is to come and win here no matter how good your horse is. You need everything to drop right and the selection showed a great attitude on debut, possibly hit the front a little soon but saw it out readily enough to expect more here today. A high draw is often viewed as an advantage and she has that and she looks the pick of the connections 3 runners judged on jockey bookings with Ryan Moore taking the reigns.

Nahanni 1pt win only 9/2 – Completed a pretty decent looking hat trick already this term and the form of those races has been working out pretty well. Stayed on well in the Derby last time out after getting away slowly and will hopefully not be too worse for wear coming into this just 11 days later. This should be a more realistic target and this further step up in trip can only play to his strengths judged on what we have seen to date. William Buick takes the ride making him the pick of the yards 2 runners and he’s usually a pretty good judge.

Duke Of Cambridge Stakes
Sibila Spain £10 win only 13/2 (Skybet money back if 2nd or 3rd offer) – Group 2 winner in France last time out and looks to be much improved this term. Has been bought along gradually by a smart yard and if handling the much quicker ground today she should show further progress on a track that will no doubt suit and play to her strengths.

Royal Hunt Cup
Fantastic Fox 0.5pt EW 16/1 7 places B365 – Finished 3rd at Epsom behind Totally Charming and is one that looks to be coming to the boil right now. Weighted to reverse that form and will be more suited by the emphasis on stamina this track will provide. Should get a decent tow into the race and if blessed by the racing gods with a clear passage will be finishing late under David Egan. Notre Belle Bete 50/1 cannot be ruled out if able to put that latest run behind for a top stable that needs respecting here.

Windsor Castle Stakes
Kaasib 0.5pt EW 33/1 6 places Skybet – Was well fancied to take a now hot looking race at Goodwood last time out but came a little undone over the slightly longer trip of 6f and possibly didn’t cope with the slower ground that day either. Should fare better back down in trip on much quicker ground today. Wears a tongue tie for the first time which could further improve this ones chances today having gone a little keen last time out and not getting home.

Kensington Palace Stakes
White Moonlight 1pt win only 15/2 – A very interesting ride for Danny Tudhope who passes up a decent sort for Clipper Logistics and David O Meara to take the reigns on this very lightly raced Godolphin runner. Won first two starts very well and beat some very decent sorts in doing so before spending 971 days off the track. Returned to action with a very pleasing run 13 days ago which should have set her right for a big run today. Interesting back at 1m today having not looking to stay the extra yardage lto. Opening handicap mark looks pretty fair on the form we have seen to date.
