One Horse, One Jockey And One Trainer To Follow On Day One

Horse - Threat

The Richard Hannon trained Threat looks to be a very useful recruit for the yard. This two year old is held in very high regard by his trainer and after only having one start he has impressed a lot of people in the racing world.

He runs in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes won by the amazing Calyx last year and this race really does set a side the outstanding juvenile's to the mediocre.

On his debut Threat was superb, winning well on 1000 Guineas day at Newmarket and he looks one of the likely types to take this contest if handling the big field.

He is very unexposed, as is much of the field but is sure to come on for his only run and if the conditions are quick then that will be perfect to see him give a good account of himself.

This two year old under Richard Hannon has the potential to be star over six furlongs and this race may just give us much more to go off in regards to how special he is.

Jockey - Jim Crowley

Ex British champion Jockey Jim Crowley could have a super start to the five day festival with some superb rides on day one at Royal Ascot.

He has three big rides that could see him top of the jockeys championship going into Wednesday's racing but with it being one of the toughest weeks of racing, nothing is certain.

However he has some strong rides starting with the first contest of the meeting with Mustashry in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes, this six year old has been a late bloomer getting better and better with age so much so he landed his first Group1 this season at Newbury in the Lockinge and that is superb form heading into this race.

One of his rides of the entire festival is Battaash in the Group 1 King's Stands Stakes, he finished second with the Hamdan Al Maktoum owned gelding last year but he looks a different animal this season and will take all the beating in our eyes.

The final horse that he has a live chance on Tuesday with comes in the lucky last and Elarqam looks to have a stand out chance in the Listed Wolfreton Stakes after landing a Listed contest at Goodwood over the same distance last time out.

Crowley is a jockey that knows how to win at the Royal meeting and is one to watch on day one.

Trainer - Charlie Hills

The final piece of the puzzle on day one and the trainer ww think can get a few nice wins to start off his festival in good style is Charlie Hills.

as spoke about with Jim Crowley he has the superstar Battaash who on his day really is one of the leading sprinters in the sport and the way the trainer has got him this season makes it look like this race is for taking if on song.

Hills also holds a leading chance in the other feature race of the day with the Irish 2000 Guineas winner Phoenix Of Spain leading the market in the St James's Palace Stakes.

This three year old on his first run of the campaign stunned everyone at the Curragh when dominating the Group 1 field and on Tuesday he will be up against some of the same competitors from that day.

He looks to be the real deal and the strides he has made from his two year old days have been astonishing. Hills has a great chance of two winners on day one, with both of them being Group 1s to add to the satisfaction.
