Churchill the Palace headline act

Churchill: Hot favourite at Royal Ascot.

Churchill will face a maximum of 10 rivals in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot next Tuesday.

Aidan O'Brien's dual 2000 Guineas winner will be aiming to add to his legacy with another Group One win.

O'Brien has also left in Orderofthegarter, Lancaster Bomber, Peace Envoy and Whitecliffsofdover.

The Richard Hannon-trained Barney Roy, second to Churchill at Newmarket, skipped the Irish Guineas to stay fresh for Ascot.

Thunder Snow is due to represent Saeed bin Suroor, while William Haggas has given Rivet the option.

There are two possible northern raiders, Richard Fahey's Forest Ranger and Michael Dods' Kings Gift.

Simon Dow's Mr Scaramanga completes the list.
