Accidental Agent can get his campaign back on track as he drops to Group Three level for the Tattersalls Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury.

Eve Johnson Houghton's charge has not got his head in front since his famous victory in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot last summer, and some may feel he surely has plenty to prove now.

Admittedly his campaign after his Ascot win last term was a bit disappointing. He blotted his copybook when refusing to race in defence of his Queen Anne crown, while he was again slowly away when fourth in the Summer Mile on the Ascot round course.

Accidental Agent then finished last in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, although nothing really panned out the way he would have liked that day.

Switched down in company today and back on a mile course without a bend, Accidental Agent makes plenty of appeal, despite having to concede weight to all but two of his rivals.
