The William Haggas-trained Addeybb heads the betting for the Rose of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock, although his participation remains uncertain.
Winner of the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Pivotal gelding was unable to reel in Elarqam when hot favourite to follow up in the York Stakes a fortnight ago.

“He seems in good form. We’d like to see some rain and lots of it, but there is more forecast, so we’ll see what materialises,” said Haggas.
“He ran well at York, but I don’t think he ran as well as he did at Ascot.
“Hopefully he has a good chance on Saturday, but he won’t run if conditions aren’t in his favour.”
Owen Burrows saddles Wadilsafa, who steps up in trip after finishing sixth in last month’s Summer Mile at Ascot.
“He’s in good form. I wouldn’t want to see too much rain, but he did run well on soft ground at York a couple of starts back,” said the Lambourn-based trainer.
“He’s fresh and well and I’m looking forward to stepping him up in trip. The work he does at home suggests a mile and a quarter will suit him.
“I would have liked to have gone for a Listed race, but there wasn’t anything suitable.
“He has a bit to find on ratings, but we’re very happy with him and we’ll see how we go.”
Raise You is an interesting contender for Andrew Balding as he drops in class after finishing down the field in the French Derby.
James Fanshawe’s Pondus, Joe Tuite’s Surrey Thunder and John Mackie’s outsider Lunar Jet are the other hopefuls.
