The first entries for the G1 Tattersalls Falmouth S. were released on Tuesday, with 32 fillies and mares in contention for the feature race on the second day of Newmarket's July Festival on Friday, July 12.

Joseph O'Brien has the strongest hand numerically with five entries, headed by last year's G2 Duke Of Cambridge S. heroine Rogue Millennium (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), who is among the favourites to defend her crown when she returns to Royal Ascot on Wednesday. Aidan O'Brien is responsible for four possible runners, including Opera Singer (Justify), a leading contender for Friday's G1 Coronation S. in which her rivals include the first two from the G1 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, Elmalka (GB) (Kingman {GB}) and Porta Fortuna (Ire) (Caravaggio), both of whom are also entered in the Falmouth.

G1 Irish 1,000 Guineas runner-up A Lilac Rolla (Ire) (Harry Angel {Ire}) and Godolphin's Romantic Style (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}) are others who feature among the three-year-old contingent, while French raider Kelina (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) is one of the standout older horses with this option. She's been off the track since last year's Breeders' Cup, having previously won the G1 Prix de la Foret for Carlos Laffon Parias.

The entries for the G2 Princess Of Wales's S. (Sponsored By The Kingdom of Bahrain), which takes centre stage on the opening day of the July Festival on Thursday, July 11, were also released on Tuesday.

The 40-strong list includes the previous Group 1 winners Continuous (Jpn) (Heart's Cry {Jpn}) and Emily Upjohn (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), plus several others who have been knocking at the door at the top level such as Bluestocking (GB) (Camelot {GB}), Hamish (GB) (Motivator {GB}) and Point Lonsdale (Ire) (Australia {GB}).
