Tudhope reveals Royal hopes

09 June 2018 08:00:36 EST

Daniel Tudhope believes the signs are good for some of his rides ahead of Royal Ascot.

The Scot is enjoying another fine campaign and knows his way around the Berkshire course having won the Wokingham aboard Out Do 12 months ago.

That success has only further whetted his appetite for glory and he showed his form with Thursday's across the card treble at Carlisle and Haydock.

One of those horses, Soldiers Call, is tipped to head to the Norfolk Stakes on the back of his two-length win at Haydock.

Main Desire is another horse he has plenty of confidence in having won on her in all three of the three-year-old's outings, with both the Commonwealth Cup and the King's Stand options for the Michael Bell-trained filly.

Tudhope admits things are looking good ahead of next week's Royal outing and he is clearly confident about his hopes of more Ascot success.

"One of my winners among that trio is probably set for the Norfolk Stakes at the Royal Meeting," he wrote in the Yorkshire Post. "Soldiers Call was quick and ran well, so the owners and York sponsor, Clipper Logistics, should have an exciting day at Ascot where trainer Archie Watson will be targeting a first winner.

"I would be bullish about the chances of Main Desire, another Clipper Logistics-owned horse, in the Group One Commonwealth Cup a week on Friday, although she also holds an entry in the King's Stand Stakes."

Main Desire is 16/1 to win the Commonwealth Cup, while she is 999/1 for the King's Stand.
