Aidan O'Brien confirms Deauville for Royal Lodge at Newmarket
Aidan O'Brien's unbeaten Deauville is still among the 18 possibles for the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.
The Galileo colt is a full-brother to The Corsican and built on his reputation when beating Sanus Per Aquam in the Tyros Stakes at Leopardstown on his second outing.
O'Brien has also left in eight of Deauville's stablemates - Shogun, Air Vice Marshal, Beacon Rock, General Macarthur, Landofhopeandglory, Port Douglas, Unicorn and Lieutenant General.
John Gosden's Foundation is also unbeaten in two starts and barely came off the bridle in winning a Listed race at Haydock.
Richard Hannon's Listed winner Tony Curtis and stablemate Humphrey Bogart are still engaged, as is the Roger Varian-trained Haalick.
Beast Mode, Ibn Malik, Muntazah, Lazzam and Sixth Sense also have the option of running in the Group Two over a mile.
