Trainer Aidan O'Brien will declare both Mars and Magician for the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.

Coolmore said on Friday that Magician, brilliant winner of the Irish 2,000 Guineas on his last start, had sustained minor bruising following a knock on Thursday.

However a statement posted on www.coolmore.com on Saturday said O'Brien now hoped the Ballydoyle duo will both take their chance in the Group One over a mile.

Magician is due to be ridden by Joseph O'Brien, with Mars, who finished sixth in the Investec Derby, the intended mount of Ryan Moore.

The statement said: "Magician and Mars will both be declared. Mars is a definite runner and hopefully Magician will run."
