Alamshar, winning the Irish Derby.
Kris Kin will seek to become the third winner of the Vodafone Derby (Eng-I) in the last 10 years who went on to capture the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes (Eng-I) at Ascot, England on Saturday.
Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, Kris Kin will be ridden in the £750,000 race by Kieren Fallon, who was victorious aboard Golan in last year's renewal.
