Horse Racing: GIANT CAN TOPPLE 'EM.
The battling Giant's Causeway can land a Group 1 hat-trick for Aidan O'Brien in the Sussex Stakes.
A form line through Kalanisi suggests that French raider Dansili may have the edge.
But trainer Andre Fabre is not sure the Sussex track will suit his horse and if it comes to a tight finish the courage of Giant's Causeway should be decisive.
Don't be surprised if Aljabr, who won the race last year, runs another big big race.
Young Jamie Mackay can continue the upward curve in his career graph by landing a four-timer for Bustling Rio (2.15). The way Pat Haslam's tough stayer won at Doncaster last time suggested the extra four furlongs today shouldn't be a hindrance.
Baaridd (2.45) met something special in Celtic Silence in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot. Michael Jarvis's youngster can get back on the winning track in a competitive affair.
The fast improving Romantic Affair (3.50) can complete a hat-trick at the expense of Zafonic's Song.
Frankie Dettori will return to action on Maidaan for Godolphin at Goodwood on Friday - his only mount of the day. The Italian has been out of action since breaking his right ankle in the plane crash that killed pilot Patrick Mackey on June 1.
Michael Kinane will partner 16-1 shot Ho Leng for Linda Perratt in the Stewards' Cup on Saturday. Gary Carter was aboard last time when the five-year-old finished an unlucky-in-running third behind Awake at Newbury.
