Beacon faces seven in Molecomb

Beacon will have seven rivals as he goes for a four-timer in the bet365 Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood on Tuesday.

The Richard Hannon-trained youngster has shown progressive form and completed a hat-trick in emphatic style in the Listed Dragon Stakes at Sandown.

Hannon is mob-handed as he has also declared Dougal and Spirit Of Xian.

Mukhmal, four lengths second to Beacon at Sandown, has been given another crack at his conqueror by trainer Mark Johnston.

The Charlie Hills-trained Cotai Glory has shown a fair level of form and drops back to the minimum trip after losing to the smart Limato in the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes over six furlongs at Newbury.

Completing the list are Burning The Clocks, Fast Act and Union Rose.
