Irish hopes in the vision.ae Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket on Friday are represented by Cappella Sansevero and The Warrior.

Ger Lyons' Cappella Sansevero, a Group 3 winner at The Curragh, holds strong form having finished runner-up in the Coventry Stakes, but Ballydoyle representative The Warrior has yet to score from three outings and would appear to have a stiff task at Group 1 level.

Unbeaten juven ile Ivawood is the stand-out name among the seven declared starters.

The choice of Richard Hannon's jockey Richard Hughes over stablemate Kool Kompany, Ivawood was impressive in both the July Stakes and then the Richmond at Glorious Goodwood.

Kool Kompany, who will be having his ninth start in a successful campaign, has Ryan Moore booked for his first appearance in the colours of the Kool Kompany Partnership, who bought him from Middleham Park.

Jungle Cat, who has chased home Ivawood on two occasions this term, lines up again along with Muhaarar, his conqueror in the Gimcrack at York.

Charlie Appleby takes Charming Thought for a big step up after minor victories at Lingfield and Leicester.
