Hills double handed in King’s Stand

Blue Point, Battaash and Mabs Cross, last year's 1-2-3 in the King's Stand Stakes, will renew rivalry as they head 12 declarations for the 5f Group 1 contest on the opening day of Royal Ascot.

Stablemate Equilateral, a neck second to Mabs Cross at Newmarket last time, represents owner Khalid Abdullah.
