It’s Day Two of Royal Ascot on ITV Racing.

Chelsea Cloisters is trained by Wesley Ward and he thinks a lot about this horse in the Queen Mary Stakes.
The trainer does well in this race but is 9/4 too short?
Just Wonderful will give her a test as will the Aiden O’Brien trained Fairyland.
Shades of Blue should be close to favourite going by her performance in front of the ITV Racing cameras a month ago.
All the rage is about Southern France in the Queens Vase.
Queens Vase is the current favourite and trained by Aiden O’Brien but he has to step up again.
Taking the favourite out of the race and it is a very competitive renewal.
Any one of about 10 horses who could have a say.


One that catches the eye is Stream Of Stars trained by John Gosden.
The horse looked very good when winning here just over a month ago and although this is a step up in class the horse is very talented.
Hydrangea is close to being a banker and this race is a very weak Group 2.
Cracksman is the short priced favourite in the Prince Of Wales Stakes and I wouldn’t want to take him.
He looks banker material but it may be a race to watch.
Poets Word is next best in the market and the value could be to bet without Cracksman.
There is lots of value around in the Royal Hunt Cup with nearly 30 runners.
There are several decent animals at big prices.


Firmanent has come down the handicap to a very workable mark of 101 and his form around Ascot is excellent.
Don’t discount the likes of Hors De Combat and Arcanda too who are both huge prices and primed for big runs.
James Garfield is back at seven furlongs in this race which is the distance that he won the Greenham Stakes.
