Great White Eagle heads a quality field of 13 runners in Saturday's vision.ae Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

Aidan O'Brien’s charge, who is unbeaten in two starts, skips the seven-furlong Dewhurst in favour of the six-furlong Group One.

David Wachman runs Sudirman, a winner of the Railway and Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh before finishing second to Richard Hannon's Toormore in the National Stakes.

Kevin Ryan holds a strong hand, with the Gimcrack winner Astaire and last Saturday's hugely impressive Cornwallis scorer Hot Streak travelling down from his Hambleton base.

Joining him on the trip from the north of England is the Richard Fahey-trained Supplicant, winner of his last three races, including the Mill Reef.

Hannon runs the durable Brown Sugar and Shamshon, while Olly Stevens supplemented Green Door earlier in the week.

Bahamian Heights, Jallota, Justice Day, Saayerr, and Speedfiend compete the field.
