The Richard Fahey-trained colt will have plenty supporters following his excellent second at Royal Ascot last month.

On that occasion VENTURA REBEL (3.40, nb) finished runner-up to A’Ali in the Norfolk Stakes, when beaten a fast-diminishing neck. Fahey, successful in this contest on three occasions, is not short of confidence about further glory.

“I just think this is the ideal race for him,” said Fahey. “Without being particularly rude, he’ll be the one to beat.” The Malton trainer can also make the frame with Mighty Spirit.

The filly ran a solid race in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot when sixth behind Raffle Prize and was not disgraced when second behind the smart Living In The Past at Beverley.

After the triumph and tragedy at Ascot last weekend when Beat The Bank won and lost his life after breaking a leg, FOX CHAIRMAN (1.50, nap) can give his connections a change of fortune.

The Andrew Balding-trained colt, who runs under the King Power Racing banner, did not have the clearest of runs when chasing home Sangarius at Royal Ascot. Also, Silvestre De Sousa, his rider today, found himself in a pocket on his previous run when third behind the smart Circus Maximus at Chester in May.

WITHHOLD (2.25, treble) can make amends for his late withdrawal from last month’s Northumberland Plate, the race he had won last year, in the Marsh Handicap.

The gelding was well-supported for a second victory before his trainer Roger Charlton took him out due to a low-grade infection in his lungs.


FRANKIE DETTORI might have missed out on his first visit to Killarney on Wednesday but can be rewarded on more familiar territory at the Curragh.

Dettori partners STAR CATCHER (5.10) in the Kerrygold Irish Oaks.

Star Catcher impressed at Royal Ascot last month in the Ribblesdale Stakes when Fleeting finished behind her in second place and the filly can confirm that form with Aidan O’Brien’s runner.

Riding arrangements suggest Pink Dogwood is O’Brien’s main hope, with Ryan Moore in the saddle, but the filly is held by Iridessa who beat her at the Curragh last month.

Dettori last took this prize with Enable in 2017, Star Catcher might not reach that great filly’s achievements, but she is good enough to take this classic for her popular rider.
