Ten Sovereigns and Jash pull clear in the Middle Park Stakes

Ten Sovereigns and Jash, the Middle Park Stakes first and second, are set to meet in Friday’s Group One Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.

Ten Sovereigns came out on top on that occasion, but lost his unbeaten record when perhaps not quite seeing out the mile, when fifth in the Qipco 2,000 Guineas.

Jash missed the spring Classics, having taken time to come to hand.

The Simon Crisford colt made a winning debut when workmanlike in the Listed King Charles II Stakes at Newmarket, in mid-May.

In addition to Ten Sovereigns, trainer Aidan O’Brien could run All The King’s Men, The Irish Rover, Western Frontier, Fairyland and So Perfect.

Middle Park third Rumble Inthejungle, makes his seasonal debut in this contest, while Kevin Ryan’s Hello Youmzain, lowered the colours of previously unbeaten Calyx, when landing the Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock.

Martyn Meade’s Phoenix Stakes winner Advertise, returns to sprinting after a below-par effort in the Guineas.

Charlie Hills, with a stable of top class sprinters, is represented by the progressive Khaadem, the winner of his last three starts.

Far Above (James Tate), Forever In Dreams (Aidan Fogarty), Konchek (Clive Cox) and Royal Intervention (Ed Walker) complete the possibles.
