Race 1 (9:30AM ET) – Albany Stakes (Group 3)
I won on her first time out at Yarmouth last week and she will take a big step forward from that; she is a lovely filly.
Race 2 (10:05AM ET) – King Edward VII Stakes (Group 2)
#7 RAA ATOLL (9/2)
He looked a nice horse when he won at Leicester last time. The John Gosden team are doing well with an impressive Royal Ascot so far.
Race 3 (10:40AM ET) – Commonwealth Cup (Group 1)
#21 MAIN DESIRE – Bet of the day (15/1)
I have been lucky enough to ride her out at home and she has been doing really well - I can't believe she is such a big price. Eqtidaar would be the danger.
Race 4 (11:20AM ET) – Coronation Stakes (Group 1)
#10 TEPPAL (5/1)
A Classic winner on her seasonal debut and I always think David Simcock never has them massively revved up first time out so she will improve for the run and the quicker ground.
