Point heads Middle Park entries
Blue Point looks set to go off a short-price favourite for the Group One Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes with Caravaggio absent at the five-day stage.
Blue Point and William Buick win the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Gimcrack Stakes.
Aidan O'Brien reported a setback for Caravaggio earlier in the month and he has evidently failed to recover in time to take his chance at Newmarket on Saturday.
Blue Point does look set to go for top-level glory, however, following his impressive success in the Group Two Gimcrack Stakes at York's Ebor meeting.
O'Brien now has five possibles left in the race; Courage Under Fire, Intelligence Cross, Leo Minor, Peace Envoy and Sportsmanship.
Godolphin not only have Charlie Appleby's Blue Point in the running, but also the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Silver Line as another possible.
Mark Johnston as three possibles at this stage with Sutter County, The Last Lion and Yalta all entered up, while Ger Lyons could bring Psychedelic Funk and Medicine Jack over from Ireland.
Hugo Palmer's Koropick, Richard Hannon's Mehmas, Simon Crisford's Mokarris and William Haggas' Mubtasim complete the entries.
