FLASHY WINGS is the stable's standard bearer on day two of Royal Ascot and all seems set for a solid run from the filly in the Windsor Forest Stakes.
Owner Jaber Abdullah made the brave decision to keep the leading juvenile filly of 2005 in training and Mick says: "Flashy has had her share of niggling problems but she seems in great form. Her coat is gleaming and she's been working as well as ever.
They had plenty of rain after racing but we've been onto the course and they don't think it's made that much difference to the going on the straight course, where the records tumbled yesterday."
On a big day for the stable's distaffers Silca Chiave returns from a break in the Jersey Stakes with Hugh Bowman on board for the first time.
Mick continues: "I think she has a decent each-way chance. I feel she's coming back to herself although in a perfect world I could have done with another couple of weeks."
Capable Guest flies the West Ilsley flag in the Royal Hunt Cup and breaks from stall 12 under Bowman.
Mick added: "He ran a blinder when drawn on the wrong side of the track in this race last year but this time we've got the option of which way we go. As you all know with Capable, he's the type who could easily pop-up in a big handicap."
The final runner this afternoon is So Sweet in the Sandringham handicap. She was too keen for her own good last time out at Goodwood, having troubled the judge in Listed company at Chester.
Mick concludes: "That Listed race was probably the hottest of the year as she had two Classic winners behind her. She's back in trip today, as I don't think she quite got home at Chester.
I was delighted with the way the horses ran on Tuesday and today is largely a working day, with Flashy Wings our big hope."
