Royal Ascot day two: Armory has firepower for Prince of Wales’s Stakes

Impressive colt could be Aidan O’Brien’s best bet in big race, with fitness edge over Love and Lord North

It looks like a three-cornered fight for the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes as Love, last year’s 1,000 Guineas and Oaks winner, returns to action as the likely favourite to beat Lord North, who took this on slower ground last year, and her stable companion, Armory.

Love was hugely impressive on her final start at three, running away with the Yorkshire Oaks. But the drop back to 10 furlongs might not be ideal after 300 days off the track.
