Kingman, ante-post favourite for next year's 2000 Guineas, will face just three opponents when he puts his unbeaten record on the line in the Betfred Mobile Solario Stakes at Sandown on Saturday.

The Invincible Spirit colt created a huge impression when winning by upwards of six lengths on his June debut on Newmarket's July course, with the second and third home both going on to subsequent success.

Kingman now looks to give trainer John Gosden a fourth Solario Stakes triumph after Foss Way (2002), Windsor Knot (2004) and Raven's Pass (2007).

The Khalid Abdullah-owned juvenile is opposed by two runners from the Godolphin team in Emirates Flyer and Music Theory.

Saeed bin Suroor's Emirates Flyer has won twice from four starts, but was beaten in the Listed Winkfield Stakes at Ascot last month.

Music Theory could be the biggest threat to Kingman, having won decisively on his last two outings at Newmarket.

The line-up is completed by Mick Channon's Rosso Corsa, last seen finishing fourth in the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
