Group 3 C&D winner back in 2015 and has won twice at that level since, most recently at Leopardstown last month. A bit too keen in the early stages here last time and met trouble in running but not without an each-way squeak.
A grand servant who has won a host of Group races in his time including this race and a Group 1 success at Longchamp. Well beaten here last time though and his losing run stretches back to 2017; vulnerable.
Denied by a neck in the French Guineas last year and got his head back in front at that venue last time in Group 3 company. Very effective when allowed to dictate on the front end and there's no better jockey to execute those tactics than Dettori.
Just about a career best when winning a Group 2 here at 6f on seasonal bow. This looks tougher and wasn't at his best at Newcastle last time out but he's generally consistent and can go well again.
Won the Guineas here last year and while he hasn't won since, he's run some huge races in defeat of late, most notably in the Queen Anne last time out. That's amongst the best form on offer here but drop back in trip not certain to be ideal.
Very progressive sort who has won five of his last six starts. Impressive when getting the better of a smart sort in a Haydock Group 3 last time out and won't mind conditions if some rain arrives. May yet have more to give.
Listed winner at Navan last year but hasn't managed to gain a win in four starts this campaign and this is a marked step up in class; others preferred.
Made it two wins from his last four starts at Killarney last time out. Both wins have come at 1m though and may get found out by the drop in trip here; first string on jockey bookings at least.
Just a maiden win at Naas to his name and well beaten on yard debut last time. Has it all to prove at this level. Wears first-time tongue-tie.
Maiden winner at Naas in 2018 but hasn't managed to land a blow in three runs this campaign, two at Listed level. Looks up against it now tried in Group 2 company.
