HORSERACING: This nap is made of Steel.
Henry Cecil's colt makes an belated emergence from winter quarters in the Group 2 Princess of Wales' Greene King Stakes.
This progressive staying type looks to have bags of scope for improvement this year and is worth an interest as the nap.
Royal Ascot third, Sea Wave, will be on a recovery mission while Arctic Owl, Secret Saver and Craigsteel's stable companion, Capri, also come into calculations.
Race Leader (2.05) is sure to know his job for this racecourse debut. Market moves for fellow debutantes Colonial Rule, Falcon Partner and Grey Eminence should be noted.
Dilkusha (2.35), who won nicely over seven furlongs at Kempton a fortnight ago, should appreciate this stiff mile.
I'm taking Presentation (3.05) to land a wide open Cherry Hinton Stakes. Before coming fifth in the Norfolk Stakes, this likeable filly trotted up first time out at Windsor.
KILLER INSTINCT has frightened off many potential rivals for the John Smith's Cup at York on Saturday. The Henry Cecil trained colt, fourth in the Group One St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, carries 8st 9lb and is 5-2 favourite with William Hill. Eighteen are left in the race.
