Coach House favourite to continue O’Brien run in Norfolk Stakes

Coach House is a son of Oasis Dream who was beaten on his debut but has gone on to record victories at Tipperary and the Curragh. He was a good winner last time and comfortably reversed the form of his debut defeat by Fast In The Wind. He is clearly on the upgrade and the one to beat here.

Richard Hannon is yet to strike at the meeting with his two-year-olds but fields one of his best chances here with the once-raced Coulsty. The son of Kodiac made all of the running and stormed clear to win by five lengths at Leicester.

That form is difficult to weigh up but he looks sure to make a bold bid. Hannon also saddles Legend Rising, a winner at Chepstow and Nottingham and the mount of Ryan Moore.

Wesley Ward trained two youngsters to win at the Royal meeting in 2009 and No Nay Never is rated the best of his raiding party this year. He won over four and a half furlongs at Keeneland on his only previous start and will relish the fast ground here.

Saayerr is unbeaten after two races and scrambled home in a messy race at Windsor last time. Richard Fahey has trained the runner-up in two juvenile races already this week and Eccleston is another highly regarded colt. He won on his debut at Doncaster with the minimum of fuss and has each-way claims.

Olly Stevens trained his first Royal Ascot winner on Tuesday and there has been strong support for Green Door to make it two. He made all in a decent race at Newmarket to beat Wind Fire and the runner-up has franked the form subsequently. Both horses run in the colours of Qatar Racing.

Emirates Flyer represents Godolphin and won his only start at Bath. The third home has come out and won since.
