Rite Of Passage and Pale Mimosa have both been included in the latest declaration stage for Ascot Gold Cup.
Rite Of Passage and Pale Mimosa have both been included in the latest declaration stage for the Ascot Gold Cup, which takes place next Thursday.
The Dermot Weld duo are among the 19 runners still in the field for the Group One contest, although it remains unclear as to whether either will run.
Trainer Weld has already indicated that Rite Of Passage, the 2010 winner of the race, is unlikely to be risked if the going is quick.
The participation of Pale Mimosa is also in doubt, having run and won in a listed stakes at Leopardstown earlier this month.
There were no surprise omissions at the latest stage, with all the main protagonists still in line to feature at Royal Ascot.
German trainer Andreas Wohler retains two possible starters, in Altano and Earl of Tinsdal – neither horse has run in the UK to date.
The other overseas challengers in the 19 still standing, including Last Train from the Andre Fabre yard and Francois Doumen’s Top Trip.
Last year’s winner Colour Vision is set to try and defend the crown as the only representative for Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor.
