Society Rock: Loves the track at Ascot

Society Rock: Loves the track at Ascot

Ante-post favourite Society Rock will face 17 opponents as he aims to regain his crown in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot on Saturday.

James Fanshawe's speedster claimed the first of two Group One prizes when taking the glory in 2011 and was far from disgraced when beaten into fifth behind Australian wonder-mare Black Caviar 12 months ago.

The six-year-old appeared as good as ever when making a winning seasonal reappearance in the Duke Of York Stakes last month and Kieren Fallon keeps the winning partnership intact this weekend.

With Tuesday's King's Stand runner-up Shea Shea not declared to run again just four days later, Society's Rock nearest rival in the betting is Tom Hogan's Irish star Gordon Lord Byron, beaten a length and a half into third by the Fanshawe runner at York.

The Coolmore-owned Sea Siren is a major contender for Australian trainer John O'Shea, while there is also an American runner in Havelock and a raider from Bahrain in the Fawzi Nass-trained Krypton Factor.

Eddie Lynam, successful with Sole Power in the King's Stand, aims to complete a sprint double with the talented Slade Power.

Other contenders include Clive Cox's Lethal Force, the Roger Charlton-trained Mince and one-time Classic hope Rosdhu Queen, from the stable of William Haggas.
