Small field for Prince Of Wales's Stakes


Just six horses have been declared for the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at on the second day of Royal Ascot.

Japanese star A Shin Hikari heads the small field following the defections of Time Test, Covert Love and Highland Reel at Monday's final declaration stage.

A Shin Hikari was an impressive winner of the Prix d'Ispahan at Chantilly last month and he is likely to be a short-priced favourite to land the Group One on Wednesday.

Aidan O'Brien took Highland Reel out of the feature on Monday but he will be represented in the race by Found, who returns to action less than two weeks after finished second in the Coronation Cup at Epsom.

The Grey Gatsby has stood his ground for Kevin Ryan, while Charlie Appleby will be represented by Tryster.

Western Hymn from John Gosden's yard and the Clive Cox-trained My Dream Boat complete the field.
