3.35 Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup

Mark Johnston’s Sir Ron Priestley is set to clash with Stradivarus in Tuesday's Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup after being supplemented for the race.

The five-year-old bounced back from two successive losses to win the Princess Of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket and will now be one of two Mark Johnston runners alongside Nayef Road.

Sir Ron Priestley was defeated in the Yorkshire Cup by Andrew Balding’s Spanish Mission and the two are likely to meet again.

Spanish Mission followed up his Knavesmire victory with a third-placed run in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, a performance that saw him finish ahead of several Goodwood Cup rivals including Stradivarius, who is bidding to win the Group One feature for a remarkable fifth time.
