Aidan O'Brien has already had a superb season taking both the Guineas and the Epsom Derby and is now set to send a strong team to Royal Ascot that has left the bookmakers quaking in their boots.

O'Brien is set to field 10 favourites out of the 22 races across the five day Royal meeting and there is a huge chance for Ballydoyle's one number jockey Ryan Moore to get in on the act.

Back in 2015 the Englishman landed nine winners at the festival but this year is as short as 5/2 in places to go on and beat that with 10 winners across the week.

O'Brien and Moore have dominated the English Classics this season winning three out of the four on offer and only narrowly getting beaten in the Epsom Oaks with Pink Dogwood for the reliable combination finishing second to Anapurna.

However, the master Irish trainer is in sparkling form as ever this season and is planning on having one of the best Royal Ascot's for some time and the bookmakers are of the same thinking offering a general price of 1/2 to get his 10th title as the winning most trainer at the meeting.

(Credit Racing Post) Many different bookmakers are all in the same boat with this market of betting and Paul Binfield from Paddy Power has said: "Aidan always seems to peak his horses for the royal extravaganza and one of our biggest concerns would be if he were to equal or better his seven winners in 2016.

"Although it's currently quite difficult with the two-year-olds to work out which races they'll go for, Hermosa, who we trimmed into 5-4 from 11-8 this morning, looks the Ballydoyle banker at the moment and the really solid Aidan horse with Ten Sovereigns not too far behind."

O'Brien's success at the Royal meeting has skyrocketed since he combined with Moore in 2016, with the duo having a strike-rate of over 22 per cent from their 14 winners together in that period.

Bookmakers could be set to have a torrid festival, starting on the first day if O'Brien and Moore are on song with Le Brivido in the Queen Anne Stakes, who if putting his Lockinge performance behind him has a strong chance and the Irishman also has youngster Arizona and 2000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia on the Tuesday.

This seasons summertime showpiece is set to be unique for a few reasons but from a betting perspective it could be one of the first meetings to never have an odds on runner in any of the races set to take place at the Lambourn track.

The shortest price horses from the O'Brien yard are Ten Sovereigns in the Commonwealth Cup who is 2/1 and dual 1000 Guineas winner Hermosa who is now a best priced 5/4 from 3/1 to take the Coronation Stakes.

Outside of the Irish contingent the other horse across the five days that the bookmakers want to see get beat is Stradivarius who will be looking for back to back wins in the feature Gold Cup on the Thursday of the meeting.

Binfield from Paddy Power added: "We always fear a bit of multiple mayhem at these big fixtures, and while we've seen little business so far, that will really ramp up during the week and the 'big three' that we're scared of at the moment are Stradivarius, Hermosa and Ten Sovereigns."
