Exciting prospect Without Parole is among 15 horses still in the mix for the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.

The John Gosden-trained son of Frankel took his 100 per cent record to three in the Heron Stakes. He was re-routed to Sandown after a slight setback ruled him out of the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

The 2000 Guineas form is represented by Tip Two Win, who put up a career best performance to finish second behind Saxon Warrior and belie his odds of 50-1 for trainer Roger Teal.

As expected, Aidan O’Brien is strongly represented with a team of five — Gustav Klimt, US Navy Flag, Full Moon, Kenya and Threeandfourpence.

Ken Condon’s Romanised, winner of the Irish 2000 Guineas, is a sixth Irish acceptor while the sole supplementary entry is Chilean, trained by Martyn Meade.

The one French entry is Alex Pantall’s Wootton, who wears the Godolphin blue. Godolphin also have Key Victory, trained by Charlie Appleby.

Completing the possibles are French 2000 Guineas runner-up Hey Gaman, Gabr, Glorious Journey and Kings Shield.

It's the Eclipse for Masar

Derby hero Masar will drop back in distance for next month’s Coral-Eclipse at Sandown rather than bid for a Classic double in the Irish Derby at the Curragh.
