Power takes on international field

Edward Lynam's Nunthorpe and Temple Stakes winner Sole Power and the Tracey Collins-trained Arctic will take on a field of top international sprinters in the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.

Australian ace Star Witness heads a global field of 19 and Danny O'Brien's speedster, the mount of Steve Arnold, will start from stall 18 in the five-furlong dash.

The two American raiders, Wesley Ward's Holiday For Kitten and Todd Pletcher's Bridgetown, have been drawn 17 and 11 respectively.

Hungary's ace Overdose is in stall 15 as the 'Budapest Bullet' attempts to atone for his disappointing run in the Temple Stakes at Haydock on his British debut.

Extra international flavour is added by Mar Adentro from France, Sweet Sanette from Hong Kong and the much-travelled War Artist , who is now trained in Germany.

The home team comprises Kingsgate Native, Astrophysical Jet, Group Therapy , Iver Bridge Lad, Monsieur Chevalier, Prohibit, Tangerine Trees, Rose Blossom, Swiss Diva (who only runs if the ground is suitable) and Stone Of Folca.

Rain Delayed and the Aidan O'Brien-trained Sing Softly were the only withdrawals at the final declaration stage.
