ALCOHOL FREE can get the celebrations in full swing with a victory in the Group 1 Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes (3.35) at Newmarket.

A second success at the highest level, in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, saw Andrew Balding’s daughter of No Nay Never home by a length and a half from Snow Lantern, with Mother Earth in third and Pretty Gorgeous fifth.

Balding reports Oisín Murphy’s mount to have thrived in the three weeks since, and Alcohol Free is fancied to confirm her superiority.

Alcohol Free’s stablemate Sandrine beat HELLO YOU (2.25) for the Group 3 Albany Stakes on the royal heath, but the runner-up, whose early exuberance told in the final half furlong, gets the vote to gain her revenge.

The bet365 Trophy (3.00) looks wide open, but EAST ASIA has a going-places profile on turf and should appreciate a return to the surface after running down the field in the Northumberland Vase 13 days ago.

He led home the far side when fourth in the Britannia Handicap at Royal Ascot, and DUBAI HONOUR may enjoy overall supremacy in the bet365 Handicap (1.50).

At York, DECLARING LOVE shouldn’t be underestimated in the Group 3 William Hill Summer Stakes (2.40), while CORMIER looks a worthy favourite for the williamhill.com Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (2.05).
