: With a comfortable win in the Geoffrey Free G3 at Newbury on Saturday, Mount Athos will be on his way to Melbourne later in the year, and is already quoted at 10/1 for the Cup.
The race was reduced to six runners after Harris Tweed was withdrawn. Brown Panther chased the winner but could not catch him, with Modun the third home.
The Hungerford Stakes was a complete boilover when Lethal Force 25/1 stole a march on the field and while Strong Suit finished off well it was too late. Alanza was third, Chachamaidee was scratched.
