He said: "Very hard to talk about bankers as such, but there is one horse that most people will be expecting to double up, and that’s Stradivarius in the Gold Cup.
"On paper or by on figures, he is by no means the greatest Ascot Gold Cup winner of all time, but he just keeps on winning.
"The big dangers Dee Ex Bee and Cross Counter have got question marks over a horse like Stradivarius, so I think in the big races the one favourite people will expect to go in will be him.
"We have a tremendous slash up in the Kings Stand Stakes between Battaash and Blue Point, [Battaash] who is an outstanding sprinter, probably one of the best we have seen when he is on his ‘A’ game which he isn’t always on.
"Blue Point meanwhile is a very classy Godolphin sprinter again on his best form as well, plus you bring in some of the world’s best sprinters from around the globe and it looks a very special renewal.
"As for the other races, the St James’s Palace is very much a clash of Guineas winners. Phoenix Of Spain was brilliant in Ireland and he will go there, whilst in the fillies race, Hermosa who has won both the English and Irish Guineas, will go for the Coronation.
"Wherever you look, there is something exciting."
