Society Rock remains in the mix to add the Qipco British Champions Sprint to his impressive roll of honour at Ascot on Saturday.

James Fanshawe's sprinter won the Haydock Sprint Cup last time out and already has a Golden Jubilee Stakes on his record over the same course and distance he will face this weekend.

Fanshawe won the race 12 months ago with the sidelined Deacon Blues.

Aidan O'Brien's Starspangledbanner beat Society Rock in the 2010 Golden Jubilee and having returned to racing after a failed spell at stud, has failed to hit the same kind of heights.

Wizz Kid, the Prix de l'Abbaye winner, could travel over from France, along with Restiadargent.

The Cheka, Delegator, Hawkeyethenoo, Libranno and Maarek are others among a competitive field of 19.
