Clemmie has been given the go-ahead to run in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot on Friday.

Aidan O’Brien’s Group One-winning filly could not land a telling blow in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, but her trainer is adamant she will strip much fitter with that run in safe-keeping and she is his only contender.

The Coronation Stakes looks an absorbing renewal as three Classic winners have also been declared in a field of 13.

Billesdon Brook was a shock winner of the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket for Richard Hannon, while the Jessica Harrington-trained Alpha Centauri claimed the Irish equivalent.

Unbeaten filly Teppal, trained by David Simcock, was also a narrow winner of the French 1000 Guineas at Longchamp in May.

Runner-up that day was Coeur De Beaute, who attempts to reverse the form for French-based Spaniard Mauricio Delcher-Sanchez.

Threading was a runaway scorer of a Listed race at York in May and takes the plunge for Mark Johnston, while Veracious is an interesting runner on her first start for 252 days.

Others to note include Capla Temptress, a close-up fourth in the French Guineas, Aim Of Artemis and Anna Nerium
