Flat Racings premier summer festival, Royal Ascot, kicks off next week.

Here are a few trainers that you need to pay close attention to as you start to analyze the form ahead of the festival...

French Raider: Jean-Claude Rouget

French trainer Jean-Claude Rouget normally brings a strong contender from across the Channel when he arrives at Royal Ascot. He’s 3/6 (50%), +8.5pts when sending runners in the last five years.

His only entry this year is Olmedo in the Queen Anne Stakes on Day One.

GIVEMEBET has Olmedo available @ 14/1

John Gosden in the St James’ Palace Stakes

Trainer John Gosden is 2/8 (25%) with 4 places in this race, including two wins.

In 2018 Without Parole was victorious and 2014 with Kingman won. After a disappointing race last time out in the Dante, his champion 2yo Too Darn Hot, looks set to line up here.

GIVEMEBET has Too Darn Hot @ 3/1
