3pts win EMULOUS 3/1( 3 firms and exchanges) Windsor Forest Stakes

Group 1 winners have a poor record carrying their penalty in this but Emulous can buck that trend here. Last seasons Matron Stakes winner is an extremely likeable win machine who will come on for her seasonal debut victory at the Curragh and looks sure to be able to produce a similar level of form to her best last season and is certain to take all the beating here and even though the standout 100/30 with Hills will probably not be generally available for long, she is still cracking value around the 3/1 mark.

1.5pts win BELGIAN BILL 14/1 ( 4 firms and exchanges) Royal Hunt Cup
1.5pts win CAI SHEN  14/1 (Generally available) Royal Hunt Cup

These two both ran blinders over this course and distance in last seasons Brittania and must be short listed here.

Belgian Bill finished fourth in that race and hasen't won since his run prior to that. After being in Meydan over the winter he reappeared back in this country in March when just touched off in Lingfield listed race. He has been rested since then with this clearly as his summer target and it all points to a big run here.

Cai Shen finished runner up in the Brittania and this straight mile looks far more to his liking than the Goodwood track where he ran unplaced in the Totesport Mile, his only other run in a large field handicap since. He has looked as good as ever on his two Lingfield runs this season and should give a very good account of himself.

1.5pts win GRAPHIC GUEST 8/1 (Generally available) Queen Mary Stakes
1.5pts win JADANNA 12/1 ( 3 firms) Queen Mary Stakes

Graphic Guest has a strong chance of adding to Mick Channon's successes in this event. She beat previous impressive winner Hairy Rocket in good style at Windsor last time and should have no trouble confirming that form here. Her level of form there is as good as anything on offer here and with the promise of better to come she must be taken aboard.

Hilary Needler winner Jadanna looks a real early speedster who could be good enough to take a hand in this. She was reported to have arrived at Beverley short of peak fitness after a small setback so should be capable of showing tangible improvement on the level of that form.
