Lockinge winner Mustashry heads a field of five in Friday’s Godolphin Stud & Stable Staff Awards Challenge Stakes at Newmarket.

Sir Michael Stoute is dropping his six-year-old down in trip for the seven-furlong Group Two after he was last seen finishing fifth behind Enable in the Eclipse over a mile and a quarter.

He will face Henry Candy’s Limato, winner of the race for the past two seasons. He showed he was no back number when winning a Group Three at Headquarters in June.

Shine So Bright, who beat Laurens at York in August, Richard Hannon’s Oh This Is Us and William Haggas’ Solar Gold complete the field.

Saeed bin Suroor’s Final Song is among nine in the Godolphin Lifetime Care Oh So Sharp Stakes.

She has finished third behind Raffle Prize in both the Queen Mary and the Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes.

Jessica Harrington, carrying all before her in fillies’ Group races this season, sends over Valeria Messalina, winner of her only start at Naas.

Charlie Hills’ Vividly and Roger Varian’s Stylistique also line up.

Charlie Appleby’s unbeaten Lazuli is among 14 in the Newmarket Academy Godolphin Beacon Project Cornwallis Stakes.

The Dubawi colt has won at Newmarket and Doncaster in his short career to date.

Bin Suroor takes on his Godolphin colleague with Platinum Star, beaten a short head in the July Stakes before winning a Listed race at Ripon.

Aidan O’Brien sends over Pistoletto with Willie McCreery’s Ickworth completing the Irish challenge.

John Gosden and Frankie Dettori team up with top weight First In Line in the valuable bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap.

Gosden and Dettori also combine with Fanny Logan in the Group Three Darley Pride Stakes. The filly has won her last three races, all at Listed level.
