Cougar Mountain is the sole Irish challenger for the Shadwell Joel Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien relies upon the five-year-old after withdrawing his other entry Long Island Sound at the final declaration stage.

Among a field of six is dual Group One winner Amazing Maria, who was supplemented for the Group Two over a mile at the confirmation stage.

Her trainer David O'Meara is also represented by Custom Cut, the winner in 2014 and runner-up to Time Test 12 months ago.

A trio of three-year-olds - Sir Michael Stoute's Forge, the Hugo Palmer-trained Gifted Master and Nathra from John Gosden's stable - make up the sextet.
