Richard Hannon has a strong six-horse team to choose from for the Portland Place Properties July Stakes at Newmarket on Thursday.
Headlining the Hannon squad are Baitha Alga, the winner of the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot, and Kool Kompany, who bounced back from defeat in the Coventry Stakes to win the Railway Stakes at the Curragh.
Beacon, Dougal, Ivawood and Smaih all won last time out for the Herridge stable.
Roger Varian has given an entry to his exciting Belardo, who looked potentially high class when winning his maiden at Yarmouth.
Norfolk runner-up Mind Of Madness could renew rivalry for David Brown, while Jungle Cat (Mark Johnston) and Justice Good (David Elsworth) would also command respect after finishing third and fourth respectively in the Coventry.
Aidan O'Brien can call on Chesham Stakes third Dick Whittington and The Great War, who lost his unbeaten record when a disappointing fifth at the Royal meeting behind Baitha Alga.
