Frankie celebrates as Galileo Gold wins at Ascot last year

However, Palmer was thrilled with the way he worked at Newmarket recently under Frankie Dettori.

He will lock horns once again with Richard Fahey’s Ribchester, one of three runners for Godolphin along with stablemate Toscanini and the Charlie Hills-trained Dutch Connection.


David Simcock is also double-handed with Lightning Spear and Breton Rock, while Aidan O’Brien saddles Somehow, winner of the Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket last time out.

Martyn Meade’s Aclaim and Mitchum Swagger from David Lanigan’s yard complete the line-up.
