Alenquer - 15:05 Royal Ascot
Smart Stat: 26% - William Haggas's strike rate with horses running over 10f+
A strike rate of 26% with horses running over a mile and a quarter or further is an impressive record and William Haggas will be hoping to enhance it with Alenquer. The form of Alenquer's Sandown Classic Trial success was given a significant boost when Adayar won the Derby, and he sets a clear standard on Timeform ratings.
Pretty Gorgeous - 16:20 Royal Ascot
Smart Stat: 21% - Frankie Dettori's strike rate at Ascot
Things didn't go Frankie Dettori's way aboard Stradivarius in the Gold Cup on Thursday but he has a superb overall record at Ascot and his presence in the saddle is a positive for Pretty Gorgeous. Dettori has a 21% strike rate at Ascot, which is good going at a premier course where the racing is always ultra-competitive, and Pretty Gorgeous has strong claims based on her smart two-year-old form, which was largely achieved on soft ground.
Caroline Dale - 18:10 Royal Ascot
Smart Stat: £16.25 - David Loughnane's profit to a £1 level stake with horses running after a break
Caroline Dale hasn't been seen since finishing third in a listed race at Newbury last August but fitness is unlikely to be an issue given trainer David Loughnane's positive record with horses running after a break. Loughnane's horses are clearly in excellent heart at present as he sent out a one-two in the Kensington Palace Stakes on Wednesday, while his runner in the Norfolk Stakes on Thursday, Go Bears Go, was only denied in a photo-finish.
