Derby entry who stayed on well to score over 7f last July on second start and rested since then. Extra furlong should be no problem but faces no easy task under winner's 7lb penalty.

Frankel colt holds entries in Irish 2000 Guineas and St James's Palace Stakes. Comfortably won only start last term at Ascot over 7f and is a potentially useful performer. Sets the standard and might prove hard to beat despite 7lb penalty.

Dam's side is all about stamina for this Holy Roman Emperor gelding who makes his racecourse debut here. Likely to need further to be seen at his best.

€100,000 son of Australian sire Redoute's Choice. Looked green as grass and was friendless in the market on debut at Windsor recently, finishing well down the field. May need more time before showing his true worth.

Showed promise when third in the Wood Ditton Stakes here on debut last month. Drop back in trip didn't help when one paced fifth at Goodwood recently, although not beaten far. First time hood and blinkers though are more of a concern.

Gelded son of the tough Al Kazeem. Made his racecourse debut earlier this month at Nottingham and looked as though the experience would do him good. May need a run or two more to find his feet and others are prefered on this occasion.

525,000 guineas son of Speightstown but holds no big entries at this point of his career. Shown ability both starts, not getting much of a run when beaten favourite here last month. Not written off by any means and may not be too far away.

75,000 Intello colt, finished last of 13 on debut at Kempton last October. Faces a stiff task here and likely to do better once receiving his handicap mark.

Shamaradal colt makes his racecourse debut. Dam related to some useful performers. Yard's few runners doing well of late so worth a market check to see if there is any interest in him.

Gelded son of Intello who hasn't shown much in two starts so far and looks out of his depth in this company. Hard to see him figuring at the business end of the contest.

Son of Declaration of War out of a dam who is a close relative of the high-class Henrythenavigator. Gave impression he has ability when sixth on debut at Yarmouth and represents a powerful yard. Improvemnt expected and may not be far away.

170,000 guineas Camelot colt, is half-brother to 2000 Guineas placed Olympic Odyssey and other good horses. Well beaten on debut last month, but a little better last time at Nottingham. Still has plenty to find and will find this a tough test.

Frankel colt whose useful dam is a half-sister to 1000 Guineas winner Ghanaati. Chased Herculean home on debut in September and is potentially useful. Has plenty of big entries so another bold show is anticipated.

Two runs on the AW so far for this daughter of Champs Elysses showing only modest form. Looks out of her depth here and likely to do better once contesting handicaps.

Betting

Forecast

Herculean (6/4), Wadilsafa (15/8), Elhafei (6/1), Global Giant (11/1), Cogital (14/1), Narynkol (20/1), Eledeed (50/1), Advanced Virgo (66/1), Olympic Odyssey (66/1), Alexanderthegreat (66/1), Good Effort (80/1), Lexington Empire (100/1), Ezz (150/1), Overtrumped (200/1)

Verdict

HERCULEAN is taken to confirm his previous superiority over Wadilsafa in what looks a very interesting event. Both horses hold entries in top races and there is plenty at stake here with regard to their future plans. The other previous winner Global Giant is respected but will find this harder than his success on the July course last summer, while a host of potential improvers who should be noted in the market include Narynkol, Olympic Odyssey, and Elhafei.
