Jessica Harrington’s six-year-old took the Ascot event, which is one of the first legs in the WH Stayers’ Million, and he could take in this test ahead of the next leg, the Gold Cup at the Royal meeting.

Willie Mullins has left in Max Dynamite and Wicklow Brave, who both ran over hurdles at last month’s Punchestown Festival.

There is a fourth Irish possible in the Godolphin-owned Twilight Payment, trained by Jim Bolger. Godolphin also have Red Galileo, trained by Saeed bin Suroor.
