Wesley Ward's Lady Aurelia - the juvenile star of last year's Royal Ascot - is favourite to scorch to victory in the King's Stand while Dettori also rides the equally-fancied Happy Like a Fool for the same trainer in the Queen Mary Stakes.

A minute's silence was observed across the racecourse on Tuesday after the arrival of the Queen and the Royal party in the Ascot parade ring in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire and the London and Manchester terror attacks.

The extra dynamic will be evident from the very first race of the week, the Queen Anne Stakes, when Ribchester, owned by Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum's Godolphin operation, faces Qatar Racing's Lightning Spear. I felt I was going nowhere and, yes, I thought about calling it a day.

The latter was a big hope for the Derby last summer but found that came too soon in his fledgling career, but he looked to be the horse connections have always regarded him as when he strode away with the Gordon Richards Stakes at Sandown on his reappearance in April.

It was the second victory at Royal Ascot for the 3-year-old daughter of Scat Daddy.

Jim Crowley has been booked to replace him aboard Ulysses in the Prince of Wales's Stakes, while Andrea Atzeni gets on board Daban in the Jersey Stakes. She has a featherweight in this and will no doubt try to dominate the race.

After winning here a year ago, Jean-Claude Rouget's filly followed up in the Group One Prix Rothschild at Deauville before proving a little disappointing in third behind Alice Springs in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown.

Spencer said: "He's an wonderful horse and I've loved since day one".

Oddschecker spokesman: "The bookmakers fared much better at Cheltenham this year compared to 2016, and also had a nice little boost earlier in the month with the General Election result".

If she is to be caught, it may well be by another very fast filly in the shape of the four-year-old MARSHA.

The monarch's address in the House of Lords is due to begin at 11.30am and the Queen is expected to make it in time for the first race at 2.30pm and may even be there for her traditional arrival ceremony, the carriage procession, at 2pm.

The daughter of Scat Daddy arrived at this meeting past year on the back of just a maiden win at Keeneland.
