Sir Michael Stoute's Carlton House is an intended runner in Sunday's Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby at the Curragh.
The Street Cry colt has been the subject of much media frenzy this year, not least owing to the fact that he's owned by the Queen.
Victory in the Dante Stakes at York ensured he was sent off hot favourite for the Derby at Epsom despite suffering a setback in the week leading up to the big race.
He still put up a fine performance to finish third, beaten just a length by Pour Moi, despite a troubled run and is set to get another shot at Classic glory in Ireland this weekend.
A spokeswoman for the Stoute yard confirmed the intention is for the colt to be declared tomorrow, making him the first horse owned by a member of the British royal family to run in the Curragh Classic.
