Ryan Moore’s decision to partner COMBINE (6.25, nap) for Hugo Palmer at Kempton rather than team up with his principal stable can be rewarded. Moore, when not in the saddle for Aidan O’Brien, has a strong link with Michael Stoute who runs Lehwaiyla, the mount of Jason Watson.
Moore’s decision to ride Combine is understandable following her excellent third behind Cabaletta at Yarmouth last season.
The second home, Frankly Darling was an impressive winner at Royal Ascot last week.
Andrew Balding, the toast of the royal family following his success for the Queen with Tactical at Royal Ascot, has found a winning opportunity for THAI POWER (8.55, treble).
The colt was unfortunate not to score at Lingfield earlier in the month after he was denied a clear when fifth behind Billhilly.
The Queen can enjoy more success with LIGHTNESS (3.15,) at Beverley.
The daughter of Shamardal has needed time but showed that she is now ready after finishing a short head behind Shatha at Kempton earlier in the month.
