Royal Ascot is rated Good to Firm. We started the week well with our best bet winning last night and our 25/1 value pick running second.
The quality of Japanese horses speaks for itself and Shahryar is one of the most promising exports the land of the rising sun has produced in a long time. He was terrific holding off the well performed Yibir in the Sheema Classic and he will relish the firm going here. Expect Cristian Demuro to press forward and turn this into a real test of stamina.

Confidence Level: 4.5/5

American trainer Wesley Ward tasted humble pie last night in the King’s Stand but he can rebound here with a brilliant filly in Love Reigns. Her debut victory at Keeneland was simply outstanding and the daughter of US Navy Flag should be far too slick for them over the five furlongs.

Nahanni was reportedly highly agitated prior to the start of the Derby, before he was slowly away and had no luck in the run. Under the circumstances, his effort to finish seventh was quite good. The extra trip here should hold no fears and Charlie Appleby’s team is flying at present.
