Marlboroug­h’s day-by-day guide



Race of the day

It is hard to look beyond the Queen Anne Stakes (2.30), in which one of the world’s best horses, Palace Pier (right), tackles 10 rivals in a race where fans are no doubt hoping to see a blockbuste­r performanc­e from last month’s Lockinge Stakes winner. On his day, he has looked little short of devastatin­g and no doubt both the Gosden team and jockey Frankie Dettori will be eager to lay down an emphatic marker for the week with the star miler.

Bet of the day

Lucky Vega (4.20) can relish the return to quicker ground and defy a wide draw with a bold bid for victory. He has been a model of consistenc­y through all his seven starts, with interferen­ce in the National Stakes and unfavourab­le soft going the two factors that have led to him missing the frame just twice in his career. With the prospect of a strong tempo sure to suit, he can go very close.
