No High Definition but Kyprios and Carlisle Bay represent O'Brien at Lingfield

Kyprios: one of two runners in the Lingfield Derby Trial for Aidan O'Brien
1 of 1

High Definition may have been scratched from Lingfield's Novibet Derby Trial (2.50) on Saturday, but Aidan O'Brien has declared both Kyprios and Carlisle Bay, who will both race in cheekpieces for the first time.

O'Brien last won the race in 2019 with subsequent Derby hero Anthony Van Dyck, while his other winners include Kilimanjaro, Nevis, Age Of Aquarius and Alessandro Volta.

Up against the pair is Godolphin's Adayar, who caught the eye when staying on to be a close second to Alenquer in the Classic Trial at Sandown.

Ralph Beckett runs the promising Scope while Roger Varian relies on Nottingham winner Third Realm.

Solario Stakes winner Etonian will need to recapture his juvenile form to figure and Recovery Run, who completes the seven-runner field, represents Andrew Balding and Oisin Murphy.

Last year's Royal Ascot winner Chiefofchiefs is among 29 horses confirmed for the Tote+ Victoria Cup (3.40) at Ascot on Saturday. 

The Charlie Fellowes-trained eight-year-old is likely to be towards the top of the market for the competitive seven-furlong handicap.

Hugo Palmer has booked Tom Marquand to ride unexposed four-year-old Acquitted, while Group 2 winner Fox Champion will be of interest at this level.

Raising Sand (far side) and Kaeso are among the course regulars declared at Ascot

Keyser Soze won at the track last month and is back for more, as are Ascot regulars Raising Sand, Escobar, Kaeso, Greenside and River Nymph. 

A field of 17 have been declared for Saturday's feature at Haydock, the Pertemps Network Grade 3 Swinton Handicap Hurdle (3.10).

Topweight Teqany represents the in-form team of Fergal O'Brien and Paddy Brennan.

Aintree winner Rowland Ward renews rivalry with Camprond and Copperless, while Nicky Henderson runs Hooper, who will be bidding for a four-timer, and Paul Nicholls relies on John and Jess Dance's Celestial Force.
