Hillstar, who has finished second to Brown Panther and stablemae Telescope on his last two starts, also has an entry in the Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket on July 10.

Stoute said: "Hillstar has been confirmed for the Eclipse but I don't know if we will run him there.

"We will try and determine what the field will be and he doesn't like the ground too quick."
