Racing enthusiasts from across the globe will turn their attention to the UK over the next five days as Royal Ascot Festival captures hearts and minds.
Champion horses, owners, trainers and jockeys are jetting in to take their places at the world-famous annual event in Berkshire.
Even the most casual fans will be tempted to have a flutter in the hope of making a bit of money off what is set to be a fantastic week.
Express Sport is here to give punters the inside track with tips on who to back on Tuesday as day one of Royal Ascot unfolds.
2:30 Queen Anne Stakes
Mustashry just keeps improving for Sir Michael Stoute and winning last time out at Newbury has set him up well for the Queen Anne Stakes.
Mustashry will have to get the better of Laurens here, while Accidental Agent might give him a run for his money if he is able to build on his third-place finish in the Lockinge.
3.05 Coventry Stakes
Arizona is the horse to beat in the second race of the day with Ryan Moore at the saddle of the son of No Nay Never.
Arizona turned heads in winning the Curragh maiden and should win the battle with Monoski, Guildsman and Well Of Wisdom.
3.40 King’s Stand Stakes
If you’re going to back a sure-fire winner today, it’s got to be Battaash.
Jim Crowley rode the five-year-old to victory at Haydock in his last race and the duo should combine again to fend off Mabs Cross and Blue Point.
4.20 St James’s Palace Stakes
Trainer John Gosden has talked up Too Darn Hot’s performances in the gallops ahead of this race and he stands in good stead for success.
King Of Comedy and Circus Maximus can cause Too Darn Hot a problem if they live up to their respective potential, however, in the £500,000 face-off.
5.00 Ascot Stakes
Back Gunnery to best a strong Irish contingent, headed up by Buildmeupbuttercup, in the penultimate race of the day.
Willie Mullins has sent over Buildmeupbuttercup and the five-year-old is a solid each-way bet for punters.
5.35 Wolferton Stakes
Magic Wand has been racing all over the world of late but this represents a return to a simpler field for the well-travelled filly.
Latrobe is a contender but has failed to hit the heights he reached when securing his Irish Derby triumph.
