Has already won valuable races this year, the latter of which a Group 2 in France. No match for Cracksman and the like in a French Group 1 last time and must carry a penalty here but could be up to running in to a place.

Highly tried, often failing to land a blow in Group 1 company, though did place over C&D last year in the Eclipse. Hold up performer who loves fast ground so can't be dismissed down in class here if he gets a decent pace to aim at.

A Group 3 winner last year at Windsor and only just touched off in a Group 3 over C&D last time out. The winner from that has done plenty for the form since. Not ruled out but has a bit to find on ratings.

8/1

Won his first three starts in good fashion, though latest was only a Class 3 Handicap at Ascot and he failed to justify favouritism in a Group 3 at Haydock in August. Far less exposed than his rivals but this looks like a tough race for the grade.

4/6

Career best effort when narrowly beaten in the Irish Champion Stakes last year and placed behind Cracksman in the Ascot version the following month. Returned with a fine effort in a Meydan Group 1 last time and the one to beat if reproducing that.

Betting

Forecast

Poet's Word (4/6), Fabricate (3/1), Laraaib (8/1), Desert Encounter (12/1), Air Pilot (16/1)

Verdict

POET'S WORD has been plying his trade in Group 1 company in recent times and he looks sure to appreciate the drop in class here. Fabricate ran well here last time behind a Sir Michael Stoute runner who has franked the form since and may be capable of doing so again. Desert Encounter could be of interest but will need a strong gallop to be seen at his best and that looks unlikely.
