We are less than a month away from Royal Ascot, and there were some outstanding performances over the weekend of horses that could play a notable role during the five-day Flat extravaganza in mid-June. We pick out a few of the performances that caught our eye and could be the launchpad for Royal success...

Aidan O'Brien traditionally has a strong team of two-year-old stars lining up in the Coventry Stakes on day one of Royal Ascot, and the Ballydoyle handler appears to have another exciting juvenile in the shape of Blackbeard, who bounded to an impressive three-and-a-half length success in the Group 3 Marble Hill Stakes at the Curragh. Instantly, slashed in the Coventry Stakes betting in the aftermath, Blackbeard is now a best-priced 5/1 chance for the six-furlong Group 2 on June 14, while he's also a prominent figure in the Windsor Castle Stakes betting, should O'Brien opt to send him to a potentially weaker contest.

Still on the subject of exciting sprinters, King's Lynn was a battling winner over the eye-catching Twilight Calls in the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock Park on Saturday afternoon, and Andrew Balding's speedster, who is owned by Her Majesty The Queen, could be next seen lining up in the King's Stand Stakes on the opening day of the meeting. Showing a fine turn of foot to kick to the front, King's Lynn showed tremendous tenacity to get the better of Twilight Calls for Henry Candy, and the pair are both 14/1 to win the King's Stand in a few weeks time.

Native Trail's next port of call is unknown following his fine win in the Irish 2000 Guineas on Saturday, and some have questioned whether he would be a much improved performer stepping up in trip from the mile. A best-priced 7/2 chance for the St James's Palace Stakes, Native Trail may head elsewhere with his English Guineas conqueror Coroebus heading that betting at 4/6, so it's unknown what Charlie Appleby has planned for the star colt.

Arguably, the most impressive performer of the entire weekend was the Dermot Weld-trained Homeless Songs, who serenely breezed to an emphatic victory in the Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh on Sunday and the Rosewell House inmate is now a best-priced 2/1 for the Coronation Stakes on June 17.

Having travelled sweetly throughout the event, Homeless Songs was eased to the front affairs in the closing stages of the event, and duly quickened like a top class performer, and having been initially given quotes of 7/2 for the Coronation in the aftermath of the event, Homeless Songs was cut to a current 2/1 for what looks an intrigung renewal of that event on day four of the Flat racing extravaganza.

Karl Burke's El Caballo faced his toughest assignment to date as the hugely progressive three-year-old sprinter attempted to win his sixth race on the spin when he lined up in the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock on Saturday. Taking on the top-notch Go Bears Go in the event, El Caballo duly rose to the occasion as he fended off Flaming Rib in an epic finish to the 6f event, and Burke could now have his attentions firmly fixed on next month's Commonwealth Cup.
Sitting as the 7/1 second favourite behind the 5/1 market leader Perfect Power, El Caballo will need to step up again if he is to land a first Group 1 contest, but the son of Havana Gold has shown no signs of stopping his progression, and he's sure to put up a bold bid for victory. The aforementioned Go Bears Go, who could only finish fourth in the Sandy Lane, is now a best-priced 12/1 chance for the Commonwealth Cup.
