Magician on Wales's list

Aidan O'Brien is set to rely on Magician in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot on Wednesday.
The Breeders' Cup Turf winner won last month's Mooresbridge Stakes at the Curragh but was unable to reel in Noble Mission in the Tattersalls Gold Cup on his latest appearance.
Jim Bolger has Leitir Mor, Parish Hall and Trading Leather in contention, but the star of the show is last year's stunning Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Treve.
The French filly was narrowly beaten by Cirrus Des Aigles on her seasonal reappearance in the Prix Ganay, but is a hot favourite to strike on her British debut under Frankie Dettori.
Dank is also among 11 confirmations for the 10-furlong Group One, w hile Roger Varian has entered Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned pair Ektihaam and Elkaayed.
The owner's chief contender is the William Haggas-trained Mukhadram, who was narrowly beaten by Al Kazeem in a thrilling finish 12 months ago.
Multiple Group One-winning mare The Fugue, third last year, could line up for John Gosden. Gay Kelleway's likely outsider Zambucca completes the list.
