The Fugue can beat the boys in a fascinating renewal of the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot. John Gosden's filly is having her first run of the campaign, which makes things even tougher for her, but if she can reproduce the burst of acceleration she showed in winning the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood last season she has every chance. After her impressive Goodwood win she was worn down over a mile and a half in soft ground at York by Shareta, who subsequently won the Prix Vermeille, and then suffered trouble in running at the Breeders' Cup. The only time she appeared to run below form was when beaten six lengths by Princess Highway in the Ribblesdale at this meeting last year but having already run in the Guineas, Musidora and the Oaks, she can be forgiven that. Duntle can win for the second year in succession at the meeting, this time in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes. Successful in the Sandringham Handicap 12 months ago, her only defeat since then came when she was harshly disqualified from first place in the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown. There is in fact a silver lining for the David Wachman-trained filly as because of that she escapes a Group One penalty in the race formerly known as the Windsor Forest. That Matron result did show one thing - that Duntle was capable of mixing it at the highest level and she will need to be as despite this only being a Group Two, it looks very strong on paper. Dank and the supplemented Chigun were separated by a cigarette paper in the Dahlia Stakes and the third, Thistle Bird, franked the form at Epsom. Chigun looked to have improved enormously on her next start in Ireland and would be a fairytale success for Lady Cecil. Wachman can double up with Hint Of A Tint in the Sandringham. Due to Duntle's exploits last year the Irishman will know exactly what is required and while she has not won since her debut, her last run when beaten a neck by Just Pretending looks top-class given that filly finished third to Just The Judge in the Irish Guineas. Garswood is taken to bounce back from a disappointing display in the 2000 Guineas with victory in the Jersey Stakes. Richard Fahey's faith in this colt remains intact and he repeatedly states that he has never had a horse work better on his Musley Bank gallops in Malton. He looked a proper animal when devouring the ground in the Free Handicap at Newmarket and Fahey really thought he would ruffle the feathers of the big guns in the Guineas. For one reason or another it was not to be but back at seven furlongs in a much weaker race he can get his career back on track. The Royal Hunt Cup will surely be run to suit the William Haggas-trained Fury. His record in big fields is exceptional. He won a 22-runner sales race at two, was placed in the Lincoln and the Spring Cup at four and won a Listed handicap at York off 104. In the Cambridgeshire he was second in his group off 106 and runs off 100 this week. The Queen Mary looks a well-above average renewal this year but it may pay to side with experience and Clive Brittain's Rizeena looked a very polished performer in winning a Listed race by three lengths at Sandown. Brittain believes her to be a Guineas filly for next year but at this stage the stiff five is far enough. Subsequent races have suggested Shrimper Roo remains well handicapped ahead of the Wells Memorial Challenge Trophy Handicap at Ripon, while Tom Dascombe's Wall Of Sound will take the beating in the Follow At HamiltonParkRC On Twitter Median Auction Maiden Stakes at the Scottish track. Dancealot shaped well behind Joyeuse on debut and should be hard to beat in the British Stallion Studs Supporting British Racing EBF Maiden Fillies' Stakes, with Dr Dalwhinny the pick in Uttoxeter's Try Our New Crabbies Scottish Raspberry "National Hunt" Maiden Hurdle.

Dawn Approach lost his unbeaten record in style at Epsom as Ruler Of The World kept his and became Aidan O'Brien's fourth
