Muthmir takes on Group 1 company for the first time on Tuesday

It's day one of Royal Ascot on Tuesday and Timeform have picked out their three best bets...

"...and can enhance his trainer's superb record in this event."

Ascot 14:30 - Able Friend

Foreign superstars Able Friend and Solow both come here with impressive winning streaks behind them and are likely to provide a stiff test for Night of Thunder and Toormore. Solow's a skinny price for one yet to contest a top 1m race so preference is for Able Friend, whose potent turn of foot can prove decisive.

Ascot 15:05 - Air Force Blue

Air Force Blue beat 2 subsequent winners in what is traditionally a strong maiden at the Curragh on debut last month and can enhance his trainer's superb record in this event. Round Two clearly has plenty going for him, while War Department is also on the shortlist after his impressive debut success at Leicester.

Ascot 15:40 - Muthmir

Muthmir gave further indication he has what it takes to go right to the top in the sprinting division when landing his first success at Group level in France last time and may prove too strong for Sole Power, who is seeking a hat-trick in this contest. Mecca's Angel is another to consider if proving as effective on the likely much quicker surface, alongside Australian-raider Shamal Wind.
