Policy Maker, trained in France by Elie Lellouche, has been added to the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at today’s confirmation stage.
The five-year-old was the only supplementary entry and is among 16 horses who may go for glory in the Group One midsummer showpiece at Newbury on Saturday.
Policy Maker was runner-up to Alkaased in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on his latest start, a race in which Arc de Triomphe winner Bago, the other French-trained acceptor in the King George, was third.
All the other leading fancies have stood their ground, including Vodafone Oaks winner Eswarah and ante-post favourite Azamour.
Doyen, a brilliant winner 12 months ago, has been left in by Godolphin.
King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes: Ace, Azamour, Bago, Doyen, Fight Your Corner, Gamut, Grey Swallow, Mubtaker, Norse Dancer, Phoenix Reach, Razkalla, Warrsan, Yeats, The Geezer, Eswarah, Policy Maker (16).
