15/2
Very smart colt who made it 2-3 this term with gutsy success in Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh 41 days ago by neck from High Definition. Versatile sort and shouldn't be underestimated.

9/4
High-class colt who returned with most impressive 5-length win in Brigadier Gerard over C&D. Failed to build on that when odds-on second in Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot 17 days ago but he remains with potential back on easier ground.

Very smart gelding. Left at start (blindfold removed after several attempts) when last of 5 to State of Rest in Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot 17 days ago. Should get back on track here.

7/1
Top-class colt who recorded a third Group 1 win in imperious style in Juddmonte at York last August. Tailed-off last in Saudi Cup at King Abdulaziz on his return in February but he's the sort to bounce back.

3/1
Unbeaten in his first 5 starts before going down by ¾ length to stablemate Coroebus in 2000 Guineas at Newmarket. Comfortably landed Irish equivalent at the Curragh since and he can't be dismissed now stepping up to 1m2f.

Fast improving French colt who proved something of a revelation when easily landing Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly by 5 lengths from El Bodegon, quickening clear final 1f. The one to beat.

Forecasts

Bay Bridge (9/4), Vadeni (11/4), Native Trail (3/1), Mishriff (7/1), Alenquer (15/2), Lord North (33/1)

Verdict

None can be ruled out in a fascinating Eclipse yet it's hard to side against VADENI who was a sparkling winner of the Prix du Jockey Club and can reward connections' decision to supplement him for £50 000 in the week. Bay Bridge saw his winning spree ended at Royal Ascot but shouldn't be written off provided ground conditions remain with some ease, while high-class miler Native Trail can't be discounted now he steps up in trip and it would come as no surprise to see Mishriff bounce back.
