Cougar on the prowl at Newmarket
Cougar Mountain is the sole Irish challenger for the Shadwell Joel Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.
Trainer Aidan O'Brien relies upon the five-year-old after withdrawing his other entry, Long Island Sound, at the final declaration stage.
Among a field of six is dual Group One winner Amazing Maria, who was supplemented for the Group Two over a mile at the confirmation stage.
Her trainer David O'Meara is also represented by Custom Cut, the winner in 2014 and runner-up to Time Test 12 months ago.
A trio of three-year-olds – Michael Stoute's Forge, the Hugo Palmer-trained Gifted Master and Nathra from John Gosden's stable – make up the sextet.
