Cox takes aim at the Palace
Last year's winner Profitable heads a field of 16 declared for the Longholes Palace House Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.
Victory in this Group Three dash over five furlongs kick-started a fine season for the Clive Cox-trained sprinter as he went on to win Haydock's Temple Stakes and the King's Stand at Royal Ascot.
Cox also has a decent second string to his bow in the filly Priceless.
Sir Mark Prescott's Marsha, winner of the Prix de l'Abbaye, makes her seasonal debut while other classy sprinters on show include Cotai Glory, Just Glamorous, Alpha Delphini, Kachy, Kimberella and Muthmir.
Ornate and Goldream, winner of this race in 2015, represent Robert Cowell, with the Aidan O'Brien-trained Washington DC flying the flag for Ireland.
