THOMAS HOBSON (5.35) can bring the curtain down on Royal Ascot week by landing the 2m 5f Queen Alexandra Stakes.

Willie Mullins’s dual-purpose performer hacked up by six lengths in the Ascot Stakes on the Tuesday of last year and was brought out four days later to chase home Oriental Fox in this marathon. Mullins has brought him to England a fresh horse this time round and he will take a power of beating under Ryan Moore.

HARRY ANGEL (4.20) has yet to register a victory at Ascot from four starts but that is a rare blemish on an illustrious CV which should be corrected this year in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

He made a confident start to the new season in the Duke Of York Stakes, giving weight and a beating to Brando. Clive Cox’s sprinter split Caravaggio and Blue Point in the Commonwealth Cup 12 months ago and probably has Aidan O’Brien’s Australian recruit Merchant Navy as his main rival.

Fillies look likely to dominate the Chesham Stakes and Mark Johnston’s Natalie’s Joy has been a hot favourite ever since she romped home by six lengths at Goodwood. Equally impressive last time out was Godolphin’s BEYOND REASON (2.30), a four lengths winner at Kempton over six furlongs. She seems sure to relish this extra furlong and will be hard to knock out of the frame.

QUEEN OF BERMUDA (3.40) looks to have as good a chance as any in the Windsor Castle Stakes following wide-margin victories at Windsor and Thirsk.

AYR puts on a cracking Saturday card and MAKSAB (2.20) can reward Mick Channon’s long journey from Berkshire by landing the 7f handicap.

Maksab had to dig deep to outpoint well-touted Yafta on quick ground at Newmarket a fortnight ago and a 6lb rise shouldn’t be enough to stop an action replay.

Another southern raider, MORDIN (2.55), was turned over at short odds by Plutonian at Windsor but compensation awaits in the 1m 2f handicap. The front pair pulled clear and Simon Crisford has his string in great shape.

The locals could have plenty to cheer as well, with Jim Goldie saddling two of his stable stalwarts NICHOLAS T (3.30) and EUCHEN GLEN (4.50).

In-form Balestra looks dangerous in first-time cheek-pieces but Nicholas T won this race last year off a 2lb lower mark and really needs fast ground/sharp gallop to show his very best. He got precisely that in the Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar when just run out of it by useful Big Country, so the harder they go the better.

That remark applies even more so to Euchen Glen, a talented but frustrating individual as he pulls too hard for his own good. Thankfully, there is good reason to expect a very solid end-to-end gallop in this top-notch 1m 5f handicap, with confirmed trailblazers Brandon Castle, My Reward and Star Of The East all going to post.

If that quick-pace scenario works out, Euchen Glen should settle much better and last year’s Shergar Cup winner at Ascot could arrive late on the scene to strike at a nice price. Sir Chauvelin’s excellent run at Royal Ascot yesterday confirms the yard remains in top form.

The good thing about having a big meeting like Royal Ascot is horses at other meetings can go under the radar – Mrs Gallagher is one of those horses.

Last time out she ran in the Temple Stakes, although only ninth she wasn’t disgraced and takes a drop in class here. Her two other runs this season has seen two wins at Listed level where she beat horses like Different League, Mrs Danvers and Mabs Cross and I am expecting Mrs Gallagher to dominate these rivals from the front.

The price of 7-2 is above average value and I can’t turn that down although the drift on her is a bit worrying.

On a good mark here for her handicap debut as she is a well-bred daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar who has the potential to go on to better things and she is stepped up slightly in distance here which will suit. She should improve again here, the odds are a bit on the skinny side but there is still slight value.

    I was told to keep an eye out for ASCENDED a haggis horse, a man I know has ties, no race lined up but one for your tracker perhaps.

    His daughter is part of the Fred Archer Racing group which owns THE TIN MAN who is running today 1620 Ascot, he was positive about it but it seemed like more of a boast to be involved than an inside tip, however, TTM won this last year off 1lbs higher and has had a very similar prep, with skybet paying 4 places, 8/1 isnt great but for me he is real ew potential.

    3.05 Idaho to win now down to 9/2 at bet365.

    Still looks good odds and with bet365 offering a risk free bet to the same stake if it wins (as over 4-1, up to £50), hoping to see this come in and have a punt on the 3.40.

    Redcar 1440 looks a minefield, I looked at this race because Nigel Tinkler is a trainer in terrific form, he has had 6 winners from 25 runners, Lewis Edmunds last 5 runs for him read 14211. However I quickly discounted Exclusive Waters 8/1, but they are a duo to note and perhaps can bag a place or 2 with their big priced horses on the card. SLIPPER SATIN won this in 2015, and hopefully we havent missed the boat, having missed his 40/1 2nd over C&D last month. The winner that day runs in the race before and a good run there will be a boost to my selection, SLIPPER SATIN 8/1.

      1500 DR – Queen Irina 5/1 was pulled out of a race last week and caught my attention, I dont like to go against Sean Foley and since taking him at 9/4, ADMIRALITY is now 7/4 and worth siding with today.
      1610 Ayr – PJ McDonald is my guy, EQUIMOU is 3/1 fav
      555 Nm – RDS & Paul Cole pop up with nice winners, I will back it ew to cover but at 9/1 PLUNGER will see some of my money.

      I will also be trying a big treble with ATs Mordin (most risk), JBs Natalie’s Joy and 415dr Kalaxana.
