U S S Michigan can make his voyage to Chelmsford pay off in the Woodford Reserve Cardinal Conditions Stakes.

Aidan O'Brien's War Front colt has the chance to book his ticket for major assignments down the line too, in this competitive event targeted by several promising types from high-profile yards.

A lovely-looking individual, the Ballydoyle runner is top of the list, after landing the cramped odds emphatically on his winning return at Dundalk last month. The Kentucky Derby hopeful had made his racecourse debut at the Curragh more than eight months previously when he was caught close home after looking all over the winner.

He made no mistake at the same six-furlong trip last time, though.
