Royal Ascot winner Berkshire tops a list of 14 horses confirmed for Saturday's At The Races Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.

The Paul Cole-trained juvenile was an impressive winner of the Chesham Stakes on his most recent outing and the Whatcombe handler has had this Group Two contest in his sights for some time.

The Henry Candy-trained Treaty Of Paris, winner of the Acomb Stakes at York, has been supplemented for the race along with Godolphin's Outstrip, who finished second in the Vintage Stakes last time.

Aidan O'Brien has his usual clutch of entries, with Anglesey Stakes first and second, Wilshire Boulevard and Oklahoma City, Sunday's Dundalk winner Giovanni Boldini and Expedition all in the mix.

Acomb second The Grey Gatsby could take his chance again for Kevin Ryan, while Ger Lyons is planning to run Exogenesis after he missed an intended outing at Leopardstown on Saturday.

July Stakes winner Anjaal could represent Richard Hannon on what would be his first start since his Newmarket success, with Cable Bay, Picks Pinta, Voice Of A Leader and Whaleweigh Station completing the possibles.
