Raymond Tusk, now with Alan King could have a big part to play at Royal Ascot in the final race on the first day the Copper Horse Stakes over 1m6f.
The six year old has been threatening for his new yard of late and doesn’t look overly handicapped out of things off a mark of 102.
King over the last few years has been no stranger to success at this meeting and could be thereabouts, if building on the premise of his recent placed runs.
Twilight Gleaming (14:30 Ascot Wednesday)
It wouldn't be Royal Ascot without Wesley Ward runners and in the Group Two Queen Mary Stakes, which he won last year, he has a superb chance with Twilight Gleaming.
The juvenile filly has been seen twice to date having cost $75,000 as a yearling and on both her runs she has impressed, finishing second at Keeneland on the dirt on debut and then backing that up in May when getting off the mark.
This trainer often targets this race and she looks a fascinating prospect.
Could be tough to beat getting her favoured quick ground.
Brunch (17:00 Ascot Wednesday)
Brunch for trainer Michael Dods made a superb comeback on his seasonal debut and overall is a very consistent horse.
The gelding ran seven times last season, starting at Newcastle over a mile on the all weather and getting off to a winning start.
He then went to Haydock and finished fourth behind some nice horses, but bounced back to winning ways next time outa at York over 7f on quick ground.
He seems to really like York and landed the Mile Stakes Handicap at the Ebor meeting, seeing off 16 runners which was his best run of the year.
The four year old then went to Ayr and finished a short head second to the top weight in this Johan and getting weight off him here should see him reverse the form.
Brunch then finished third and sixth in his next two races on soft ground which can be discounted.
Dods' horse made a superb seasonal debut when a narrow second to Haqeeqy in the Lincoln Mile and only 1lb higher for that run went to York last time out and again had to play the Bridesmaid when just being touched off in a good handicap.
Providing he isn’t dealt too harsh a rise for that run then he should again give a good account of himself at a price.
Flotus (14:30 Ascot Friday)
Flotus for Simon & Ed Crisford stepped up for her debut at Goodwood on Saturday and made a very special impression and for that reason is worth keeping an eye on from now on.
The two year old daughter of Starspangledbanner is exceptionally bred being bought for €65,000 as a foal and was then resold for 125,000gns as a yearling.
With big things expected from her, the juvenile stepped up for her debut on Saturday at Goodwood over 6f and she ran out an exceptional winner by close to five lengths.
What was taking about this horse was the way she went away from the field in the final stages, showing a clear burst of speed and stamina to stay out the trip well.
All roads now lead to the Group Three Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot and after her superb debut performance she is now a best price of 5/1 to take the event.
Point Lonsdale (14:30 Ascot Wednesday)
The last horse to follow at Royal Ascot from their run last week is the Aidan O'Brien trained Point Lonsdale that off the back of his debut run went into be the 2/1 favourite for the Listed Chesham Stakes.
The two year old son of Australia made his debut over seven furlongs at The Curragh and was an emphatic winner of the event, scoring by close to six lengths.
With the performance being extremely taking, it also has big merit behind it when it comes to going for the Chesham next as it was the same race last year that Battleground won before heading into the same race at the royal meeting.
