Oli Bell takes Natalie's Joy to justify favouritism in the Chesham and get his Saturday Yankee off to the perfect start.

2.30 Royal Ascot - Natalie's Joy

Mark Johnston won the Albany Stakes with Main Edition on Friday and unleashes another very exciting juvenile filly in the Chesham. Natalie's Joy made a deep impression when winning on debut at Goodwood and looked every inch a horse who would make her mark at a higher level. She can prove that here.

3.40 Royal Ascot - Sabre

Richard Fahey thinks the world of this colt who finished second in the National Stakes at Sandown last time. That form took a few knocks earlier this week but I still think this is a very exciting colt and he can prove too quick for his rivals in an open race.

4.20 Royal Ascot - Harry Angel

I take Harry Angel to repel a strong Australian challenge and win the Diamond Jubilee. Much is made of the fact he's 0 from 4 at the track but he's run some good races here and returned to action with a good win at York. He's a top-notch sprinter who will be very hard to beat.

5.35 Royal Ascot - Thomas Hobson

Willie Mullins' charge was sent-off favourite when finishing second in this race last year but arrives here a fresh horse this time around. He has Ryan Moore in the saddle and is a very useful stayer on the Flat. He will take the world of beating in this.
