John Gosden’s colt, who returned from a lengthy absence with a blistering performance in the Commonwealth Cup Trial, is one of seven entries for Saturday’s Group Two.
His previous performance saw him win the Coventry Stakes last June, and through the winter a Guineas bid was in the offing until he proved his immediate future lay over sprinting trips.
“John has been very happy with Calyx since his comeback,” said Teddy Grimthorpe, owner Khalid Abdullah’s racing manager.
“He’s been working nicely since, doing everything well, and this race looks suitable.
“He’s in good form, and we’ve talked about this race since then.”
Calyx is currently 6-4 favourite to win the Commonwealth Cup with most firms.
Both also have the option of running in the EBF British Stallion Studs Cecil Frail Stakes on the same card.
