Classy field for Joel Stakes
Chris Wall's splendid campaigner Premio Loco is among 19 confirmations for the Nayef Joel Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.
The eight-year-old could go for his sixth Group Two victory in this mile contest following his game win in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood.
He rallied to deny Thistle Bird by a neck and Roger Charlton's progressive filly is in line to take him on again after landing a Listed race at Haydock on her latest start.
The horse she beat on Merseyside, Fulbright, also stands his ground after he won for the fifth time this season at Sandown earlier this week.
Brian Meehan is considering this race for his St James's Palace Stakes scorer Most Improved while Aidan O'Brien has a strong team consisting of Daddy Long Legs, the promising Declaration Of War, Reply and Starspangledbanner.
Others among the acceptors are Aljamaaheer, Fanunalter, Joviality
and Trumpet Major.
