Alrajaa (8/15), Aluqair (7/4), Knightfall (14/1), Vipin (20/1), Four Feet (20/1), Lord Howard (25/1), Miss Ditsy (33/1), Rifft (66/1), Auntie June (66/1)
This essentially looks a match between ALRAJAA and Aluqair with preference for John Gosden's charge even though this is his first race in 330 days. His latest ½L second to a Group One scorer is persuasive enough to chance him despite the absence. Aluqair has been knocking on the door and surely will soon find it opening; it almost certainly will if the selection returns with a substandard effort. The others look vastly inferior but Vipin can prove best of them.
