I like FOX CHAIRMAN for the Queen Anne Stakes. Unraced at two, his four starts at three were all good ones, with hard luck stories at Chester and Ascot’s round course keeping him fairly under the radar. He’s by Kingman and out of a Galileo mare so has the pedigree of a Group One winner, and his in-form trainer Andrew Balding was quoted saying he’ll be trained primarily for a four-year-old career. I think Ascot’s straight mile will be right up his street as he won’t get boxed in again, and we know that he stays further than a mile so he’ll hit the line hard through Ascot’s stiff finish. With a whopping five places offered each-way by Hills, we might as well take the insurance.
