James Fanshawe’s Cesare tops a field of eight for the totesport.com Celebration Mile at Goodwood on Saturday.
An impressive winner of the Summer Mile on his last start, the six-year-old will need to defy a penalty in the Group Two event.
Cheveley Park Stud, who won the race in successive years with Chic (2004-5), will be represented by Sir Michael Stoute’s Echelon as well as Fanshawe’s charge.
Godolphin’s Blue Ksar, a late withdrawal from the Rose Of Lancaster Stakes, will bid for his first Group Two victory while John Quinn’s Blythe Knight will attempt to continue his progress.
Charlie Cool, Dunelight, supplemented Irish raider Finicius and the Richard Hannon-trained Selinka complete the line-up.
Winged Cupid and Babodana were the only defectors at the 48-hour stage, with the former instead declared in Windsor’s totesport.com Winter Hill Stakes.
