Inspiral heads a select field of five for Friday's Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket, with Frankie Dettori returning for the ride on John and Thady Gosden's three-year-old.

The filly enjoyed an exceptional juvenile campaign and she picked up where she left off on her belated return at Royal Ascot, registering an impressive victory in the Coronation Stakes.

She will once again be ridden by Frankie Dettori as she bids for another Group One success. Sandrine (seventh) and Prosperous Voyage (10th) renew Ascot rivalries, with Primo Bacio and French raider Sibila Spain completing the line-up.

Dettori will renew his partnership with Lezoo, one of six to tackle the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes.

Ralph Beckett's charge was a welcome Listed winner for Dettori at Newmarket just under two weeks ago and the pair go for Group Two gold this time.
