  • Baaeed has deterred most meaningful opposition for the 2.30
  • Those looking for a more expensive option in the 3.40 can check out King’s Lynn. consider
  • Coroebus’ push-button acceleration should give him the edge in the 4.20

Sportsmail’s expert tipster, Sam Turner, gives his verdict ahead of opening day at Royal Ascot.

2.30: Baaeed, the top-rated thoroughbred in training, has deterred most significant opposition, and a repeat of his Real World Lockinge Stakes demolition should earn him a fourth straight win in Group One.

Sir Busker likes the straight and can go beyond his chances.

Selection: baeed

Danger: Real world

Baaeed deterred most meaningful opposition in practice for the 2.30

3.05: Persian Force announced itself on the opening day of the turf season when he beat his Brocklesby rivals in a quick time.

Five consecutive winners came out of the race and the roster impressed during his prep race at Newbury when he got a good look at the 6f.

Aidan O’Brien has a strong hand in all youth races and Blackbeard and Age Of Kings have impressed with their various assignments. Goodwood winner Royal Scotsman is also shortlisted.

Selection: Persian Power

Danger: Royal Scotsman

3.40: International raiders Golden Pal and Nature Strip add glamor and intrigue. Golden Pal made his comeback from the front in Keeneland and already has experience with the circuit and this encounter, while Nature Strip is an eight-time Group One winner in Australia.

Those looking for a cheaper alternative might want to consider King’s Lynn, which appears to be growing up.

Selection: King’s Lynn

Danger: Golden Pal

Those looking for a more expensive alternative in the 3.40 should King's Lynn .  can consider

4.20: Horses that travel well and have push-button acceleration are well suited to the round mile and Coroebus demonstrated his powerful gear change last time at Newmarket to withstand the challenge of stablemate Native Trail.

The runner-up has since won the Irish Guineas to boost form. The only minor flaw for Coroebus is booth two and the prospect of traffic on the track.

William Haggas’s My Prospero and Maljoom may be the main threats, while New Energy and Berkshire Shadow seem like big prizes.

Selection: coroebus

Danger: maljoom

Coroebus' push button gear should be a good fit for the lap mile in the 4.20

5.00: Reshoun (nap) provided a 66-1 surprise in this race 12 months ago and he was in form as if he might peak again at Haydock last time.

The veteran stayed up tidy that day on an inadequate journey and his stable won a couple of weekend stay matches in York to signal that they were back in shape.

Willie Mullins rep, Bring On The Night, and Triumph Hurdle third Pied Piper also have a lot of appeal.

Selection: Reshoun (nap)

Danger: Let the night come

5.35: Perotto achieved the three-year mile handicap at this meeting last year and could be an interesting contender as he tackles 10f again.

The decision to go to this race instead of the Hunt Cup could be a tip in itself. Cadillac rode to impressive Leopardstown success last time but usually saves its best efforts for that venue and Juan Elcano, Regal Reality and, at a price, Dubai Future can offer more of a threat.

Selection: perotto

Danger: royal reality

Regal Reality (pictured, center) may present more threat than Perotto in the 5.35

6.10: Platinumcard boasted of its ability to bring home the stylish Bay Bridge in York, so could prove to be an interesting outsider in this competitive final.

Connections has booked a smart apprentice jockey and he could be of value to harass Cleveland and the talented Stowell.

Selection: Platinum card

Danger: Cleveland
