Made easy work of the Chester Cup last time out when winning by 6L, staying on strongly in the closing stages. Has his first run at pattern level but well deserved and he has each-way claims here.
Group 2 winner at York last year later, following up his Chester Cup win earlier in the campaign. Struggled at pattern level since though and possible he wants a bit more cut in the ground than what's likely here.
While he was no match for the winner in a Group 2 at Newmarket last time out, he beat the rest well enough and he's effective when he settles in his races, as seen when runner-up in a Group 1 as a three-year-old. Each-way claims here.
US Grade 1 winner and three-time Group 2 winner who produced close to a career best behind smart French stayer Vazirabad at Meydan last time. Not an easy ride and needs everything to drop right but he warrants plenty of respect down in class here.
Got his head back in front at Wolverhampton on return but well beaten fifth of six at Ascot earlier this month. Improvement possible stepped up in trip but Dettori prefers stablemate Weekender.
Finished a distant third to a top-class stayer in last year's Irish St Leger and returned with a Listed win at Nottingham last month. Yard do well with their stayers and he's respected back up in trip here.
Improving sort and consistent. Didn't settle in the Chester Cup last time out but he's better than that and could be hard to catch if gifted an easy lead with Moore in the saddle.
Improving sort who returned with a win at Chelmsford last time and did that relatively easily. Plenty more on his plate here but likely to improve up in trip and he's less exposed than most.
