Anthem Alexander in winning action at Royal Ascot.
Queen Mary Stakes winner Anthem Alexander has been given the option of the Pinsent Masons Lowther Stakes at the York Ebor meeting on August 21.
Viewed as the Irish Royal Ascot banker, Eddie Lynam's filly was part of a magical week for the stable as she landed the odds.
Lynam has already entered Anthem Alexander in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on August 10, as well as given her the option of taking on older sprinters at the Ebor meeting in the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes.
The Lowther is one of the premier juvenile events for fillies during the season, and among the 45 entries are Richard Hannon's Queen Mary runner-up Tiggy Wiggy and Newsletter, who took third for Ken Condon.
Other potential runners are Cursory Glance, who took the Albany Stakes for Roger Varian, as well as third-placed Patience Alexander for David Evans, who beat Tiggy Wiggy on the Knavesmire in the Marygate Stakes at the Dante meeting.
Kevin Prendergast's Naas Listed winner Beach Belle is another interesting Irish contender, along with a host from the Aidan O'Brien stable.
Entries were also out for the Betfred Ebor itself, with just the 103 to sift through.
They include Dr Marwan Koukash's pair Angel Gabriel and Suegioo, who have fought out the finishes to both the Northumberland Place and the Chester Cup.
Dermot Weld has entered his smart staying mare Pale Mimosa, while Old Newton Cup first and second De Rigeur and Pallasator plus last weekend's Sandown winner Havana Beat are among the huge number of potential runners.
