Blue Point, emphatic winner of the King's Stand Stakes, heads 19 horses confirmed at the five-day stage for the Darley July Cup at Newmarket on Saturday.

The Godolphin-owned four-year-old is set to step back up six furlongs after his convincing performance over the minimum trip.

In the absence of Harry Angel (more here) he is one of two Godolphin representatives still in the field, the other being Wokingham runner-up Dreamfield.

Aidan O'Brien still has 10 left in the race - Intelligence Cross, Spirit Of Valor, Washington DC, Battle Of Jericho, Declarationofpeace, Fleet Review, Sioux Nation, US Navy Flag, Actress and Different League.

Australian challenger Redkirk Warrior will try to improve on his first run on these shores in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot.

Limato, winner in 2016 and second to Harry Angel 12 months ago for Henry Candy, stands his ground as he looks to drop back in trip after being well-beaten in two runs over a mile this season.

The first two home in the Commonwealth Cup, Sir Michael Stoute's Eqtidaar and Richard Fahey's Sands Of Mali, are set to re-oppose.

Completing the list are Brando, Sir Dancealot and Invincible Army.

Spice still in John Smith's mix

Ante-post favourite Dash Of Spice features among 43 horses confirmed for the 59th John Smith's Cup at York on Saturday.

David Elsworth's charge is a general 7-1 market leader for the prestigious handicap after following up an impressive display at Epsom on Derby day with victory in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Elsworth has a potential second string to his bow in Master The World, who is now at the head of the weights after the four horses previously above him - including the prolific Ajman King - were taken out.

Other leading hopes for the home team, along with Dash Of Spice, include David Menuisier's Thundering Blue, the Charles Hills-trained Afaak and Zaaki from Sir Michael Stoute's yard.

Master Carpenter, trained by Rod Millman, won this prize in 2015 and could bid for a second victory.

The last Irish-trained winner was Aidan O'Brien's Mullins Bay in 2005. There are three potential raiders this year, with the Willie Mullins-trained pair of Chelkar and Gustavus Vassa joined by Dermot Weld's Tandem.

Ante-post favourite Gilgamesh heads the acceptors for Saturday's Bet365 Bunbury Cup at Newmarket but Society Power, Above The Rest and Ekhtiyaar were taken out of the race on Monday.

George Scott's charge won a valuable handicap at York in May and ran well to be seventh in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot.

Mubtasim is next in the ante-post lists for the William Haggas team while Marcus Tregoning's Mukalal was a market mover on Monday.

Ian Williams is set to run Aces with Speculative Bid in line to carry top weight. Mark Johnston has Love Dreams, Cardsharp and Masham Star among those towards the top of the list.
