Watch a full replay of the 2018 Diamond Jubilee Stakes, the incident that has derailed Harry Angel's season since June and read our report as 17 horses stood their ground for the 32Red Sprint Cup on Monday.

Harry Angel will face James Garfield and Sir Dancealot in his bid to emulate dual winner Be Friendly in the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday.

Godolphin's sprint sensation has not run since he caught a leg in the starting stalls at Royal Ascot in June and suffered a puncture wound to his hind leg, and is the 6-4 favourite to become just the second back-to-back winner of the Group One sprint.

George Scott’s stable star James Garfield, who can be backed at 7-1, came mighty close to claiming Group One glory in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville last month when mowed down late by Freddy Head’s Polydream, after which Scott stated his intentions to head for Merseyside.

The David Elsworth-trained Sir Dancealot, who is no better than 12-1, has won the Criterion Stakes at Newmarket, the Lennox Stakes at Goodwood and the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury this season, all over seven furlongs.

He, too, has been added to the Sprint Cup field at a cost of £15,600.

James Garfield and Sir Dancealot feature among a field of 17 possible runners following the confirmation stage.

Aidan O’Brien has left in Intelligence Cross, Spirit Of Valor, Fleet Review, Gustav Klimt and Sioux Nation, while his son Joseph is responsible for the only other Irish-trained contender in Speak In Colours.

Other leading hopes include the William Haggas-trained Tasleet, Kevin Ryan’s Brando, Henry Candy’s Limato and The Tin Man from James Fanshawe’s yard.

As expected, Blue Point will swerve the contest and wait for the Flying Five on Irish Champions Weekend.
