We had a great start to the Royal Meeting with Canford Cliffs and now it is the turn of stable mate MONSIEUR CHEVALIER to win the Norfolk Stakes. I had a lovely horse lined up for the Britannia Handicap, but he’s a non-runner so in his absence there are two beasts I fancy. First up is the probable market leader DESERT CREEK who did a demolition job in the Silver Bowl at Haydock Park. I can see this beast brushing off the hefty 10 pound raise. For a saver I also fancy ESPIRITU (e/w) to improve again with the reapplication of a visor.
