Richard Hughes has been installed as the 3/1 2nd fav while Ryan Moore is 7/2.
“Aidan O’Brien has carried all before him in the British Classics this season, and we’re expecting more success for the Ballydoyle team at the Royal meeting, with Joseph in line for the pick of the rides,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
“However the teenager is likely to face a strong challenge from Richard Hughes, with the powerful backing of the Hannon stable, and Ryan Moore, currently leading the jockeys’ standings and now 4-7 for the season-long championship,” added Stevens.
