Alpha Centauri will face just six rivals in Friday's Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket.

Jessica Harrington's filly was the most impressive winner during the whole of Royal Ascot when tearing apart a classy field in the Coronation Stakes.

She will now bid for a third straight Group One having already bagged the Irish 1,000 Guineas.

Aidan O'Brien runs Clemmie, who has seen her season interrupted due to a setback in the spring.

She has been well behind Alpha Centauri in her two races so far this term.

Mark Johnston has two contenders, last year's Lowther winner Threading and Nyaleti, winner of the German Guineas this season.

The only older fillies running are Saeed bin Suroor's Arabian Hope, a Group Three winner in Turkey last year, and Mick Channon's Opal Tiara, who claimed an Irish a Group Two last time out.

Roger Varian's Altyn Orda completes the septet.

Separated by just a neck at Ascot, Main Edition bids to remain unbeaten after four starts at Newmarket.

Aidan O'Brien relies on Queen Mary second Gossamer Wings from five possibles at the five-day stage, while Ralph Beckett runs impressive Leicester winner Chaleur.

Sir Michael Stoute's Zaaki, a leading fancy for the John Smith's Cup at York on Saturday, has been declared for the bet365 Handicap at Newmarket on Friday.

Not certain to get into the York showpiece, Zaaki has been allotted top weight for the Newmarket contest with Ryan Moore booked to ride.

Mark Johnston, the winning trainer in this race in four of the last five years, had five to pick from at the five-day stage but has settled on two; Poets Prince, to be ridden by Joe Fanning, and Communique, to be ridden by Silvestre de Sousa.

Recent York winner Wissahickon is likely to be popular for John Gosden and Frankie Dettori.
