A strong 10-runner line-up is made up by Gabrial, Jallota, Mitchum Swagger, Opal Tiara and Dawn Of Hope.

O’Brien’s Deauville is among eight horses declared for the bet365 Gordon Richards Stakes in which last year’s winner and subsequent Prince Of Wales’s Stakes hero My Dream Boat makes his seasonal debut for Clive Cox.


Sir Michael Stoute’s Ulysses, fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf, is an interesting contender as is Royal Artillery from the Gosden camp.

Gosden has left both Cunco and Monarchs Glen in the bet365 Classic Trial for which just five have stood their ground.
