Richard Hannon's on-fire yard head to Royal Ascot's first day confident that they can have a major impact on proceedings.
The stable has 32 winners on the Royal roll of honour and they kick off their challenge in the Queen Anne Stakes where Strong Suit (12.00) has the seemingly impossible task of lowering the mighty Frankel's colours.
But the trainer said:" Richard Hughes reckons the last bit of work he did was his best ever and the more the ground dries the better his chance.
"Realistically we are all chasing second spot behind Frankel but we won't be seeing it that way and will be doing all we can to win."

The Coventry sees the yard with four horses involved - Sir Prancealot, "who is a serious horse", The Taj, Olympic Glory (21.00) and Master of War.
Alhebayeb (13.00), Lyric Ace and Ask Dad contest the Windsor Castle Stakes with the yard seeming to like the first of them best.
Hannon said: "Alhebayeb was very green on debut but he's come on a lot for that Nottingham run and we like him."
