It's a fantastic weekend of racing with the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes the centrepiece at Ascot.

I can't be too confident in the feature race and hope one of my favourite horses Salouen does himself proud for Ascot selections I'm going to be focusing on the races earlier on the card.

Royal Intervention can get us off to a flyer in the Princess Margaret as she moves up in class following an impressive breakthrough success in Listed company at Newmarket.

In the very next race - the Porsche Handicap - Escalator can motor to victory for Charlie Fellowes. This horse is on a steep upward curve and I do feel he's got Group-class potential so has to be followed while still rated in the low 90s.

The lightly-raced Louie De Palma gets the nod for Clive Cox in the Gigaset International Handicap following his improved second over six furlongs at Windsor. He'll relish the extra yardage on offer here and is far less exposed than some of the runners in this big field. I'm convinced there's a big day in him and this event looks made for him.

Up at York I'm going for Tommy Taylor in the Sky Bet Dash. He's got a touch of class this horse and is already a course winner after his taking display last season. He's back on a good mark now and represents connections who do particularly well on the Knavesmire.
