10/1

Runner-up in the Derby last year and returned to form with a win in a Group 2 at Naas last month. Only beaten by a proven Group 1 performer who had optimum conditions subsequently and there's still a suspicion we haven't seen the best of him.

2/5

Couldn't have been more impressive in the Champion Stakes over C&D last year and made easy work of the Ganay on return in France. Stayed on gamely to get up at Epsom last time having looked ill at ease on the track and he's the one to beat here.

Placed in the Eclipse last year but generally a little out of his depth at this level and well beaten by re-opposing Poet's Word last time. 3lb better off at the weights but has others to worry about here and likely to find a few too good.

Fared best of those on a strong pace in the Irish Champion Stakes last year, staying on well for third. Very disappointing at Chester on his seasonal bow but that wasn't his true running and not without some chance if back to his best.

Impressive winner of the Sheema Classic at Meydan (Poet's Word second), gaining a second career Group 1 success. Showed he's not the most consistent in the Coronation Cup last time and drop back to 1m2f perhaps not a positive. Others preferred.

A distant runner-up to Cracksman in the Champion Stakes last year and has held his form well since. Followed a placed effort behind Hawkbill in the Sheema Classic with an odds-on win in the Brigadier Gerard but has plenty more on his plate here.

Career best effort when winning a Group 2 in France last time. Needs to take his form to a whole new level to have any say here though.

Betting

Forecast

Cracksman (2/5), Poet's Word (11/2), Cliffs Of Moher (10/1), Hawkbill (11/1), Eminent (16/1), Desert Encounter (40/1), Royal Julius (66/1)

Verdict

CRACKSMAN had excuses when only narrowly getting up in the Coronation Cup last time out and back on a more conventional course, he could be very hard to beat. Cliffs Of Moher has returned in good form this season and could prove best of the rest for last year's winning trainer of this race while Eminent may be able to challenge for minor honours if he bounces back from a poor run at Chester last time.
