The MBNA Chester Vase takes centre stage at 3.35 with Aidan O'Brien saddling two runners against the likes of impressive Newbury winner King Ottokar and Sandown second Technician.

The Cheshire Oaks has been won by superstars such as Enable in recent seasons and Manuela De Vega faces two John Gosden-trained fillies in Mehdaayih and Fanny Logan, while Secret Thoughts steps up in trip for the all-conquering O'Brien team.

The Nap of the day runs in the 5.05 and our columnist Richard Fahey also holds strong claims in the opening Stellar Group Lily Agnes Conditions Stakes as Brocklesby hero Show Me Show Me heads a smart looking trio.
