IAN Williams is hoping he can say open Cesame to the winners’ enclosure at Newmarket on Saturday.
The coach is readying a three-pronged assault for the precious staying contest.
Main the cost is the stamina-laden Stars Over The Sea.
The seven-year-old destroyed his opposition within the trial for the massive race, coming dwelling ten lengths away from a good subject.
Nonetheless, he was granted an enormous lead that day and is not certain to be afforded the identical luxurious this time, significantly as normal rider Pat Cosgrave is now unavailable.
“Stars Over The Sea has executed properly since he gained the Trial however it’s a bit disappointing that Pat Cosgrave, who gained on him that day, has been claimed (by Godolphin) to journey in Australia.

“Hopefully I will be able to find someone of similar quality to take the reins,” said Williams.
Also lining up will be Speedy Boy, who would have gone close at Doncaster on St Leger weekend had he got a run.
Judged on that performance he still looks well handicapped, despite being 5lb higher than when winning Ascot in July.
“Speedo Boy was unlucky in the Mallard Handicap (at Doncaster, finished fifth), where every avenue he went down turned out to be a cul-de-sac and he never got a true run at them.
“I am convinced that we have not seen the best of him yet. William Buick will ride.”
Blue Rambler is the least fancied of Williams’ trio, but the trainer believes he is more than capable of making his presence felt.
“Blue Rambler picked up an injury 18 months ago and has taken his two recent runs to get back in shape. But I was particularly pleased with how he ran at Goodwood last time, where he had a blow before running on again, and he is by no means a rank outsider.
“George Downing will ride him again as the horse is owned by his father, Paul.”
