Dubawi half-brother to Snowfall so he's bred to be very good and looked just that when quickening right away on his 7f Leopardstown debut last month. The one to beat for yard seeking a fifth success in this since 2016.

200,000 gns Sea The Stars half-brother to very smart 6f-1m winner Suedois who showed plenty of ability first time up when close second over 7f at Yarmouth 23 days ago. Can be expected to improve and Dettori seemingly sides with him over One World.

160,000 gns buy this spring who knuckled down well to make a successful debut over 7f at the Curragh 17 days ago. Should be more to come from him.

14/1, won 14-runner maiden at Newbury (6f, good) on debut 36 days ago, helped by being able to control things from the front but still looking a useful prospect. Up in trip.

Kodiac colt who shaded a tight finish on his 6f Yarmouth debut a month ago and the form has been boosted by the second and third (reopposing Finn's Charm) winning since. Definitely more to come now stepping up 7f. Bold show likely under owner's retained rider Jack Mitchell.

Third to Faisal Road at Yarmouth debut before spreadeagling his field when stepped up to 7f at Musselburgh 18 days later. Will go on improving and a prominent showing here would come as no surprise.

60,000 gns Ulysses colt. Dam unraced sister to useful 6f-8.6f winner Supersta. This is a clearly a big ask on debut but his stable is long on juvenile talent this year so he's worth keeping an eye on in the betting.

8/1
Thriving on his racing, proving well suited by the step up to 6f when making it fourth time lucky in Redcar novice in May. Followed up in Woodcote at Epsom (6f again) 15 days ago. Likeable type but suspicon he might find a few improving past on him on this first attempt at 7f.

Overcame greenness to make a successful start to his career over 7f at Haydock (good to soft) 10 days ago. Dettori seemingly prefers Alzahir but this one does have the potential for considerable improvement.

Much sharper for debut when scoring over 6f at Fairyhouse (good) 22 days ago. Plenty of stamina on his dam's side so 7f ought to be within range but he'll need to take another big step forward to go close.

Yard certainly knows what it takes to win this but he ran to only a fair level when fourth on his 5f Windsor debut 75 days ago. Significantly longer trip bred to suit but can't really make a case for.

Plenty to like about his 6f Newbury debut fourth to the reopposing Dark Thirty last month. He should relish the step up to 7f and is sure to progress.

Has shown a tendency to flash her tail repeatedly on both starts but it hasn't prevented her making a promising start to her career, building on debut third when scoring by a wide margin at Lingfield (7f, good).

Forecasts

Alfred Munnings (11/8), Alzahir (6/1), Crypto Force (15/2), Legend Of Xanadu (8/1), Finn's Charm (12/1), One World (12/1), The Foxes (14/1), Dark Thirty (16/1), Faisal Road (16/1), Sunningdale (28/1), Lakota Sioux (33/1), Holloway Boy (40/1), Shahbaz (66/1), Pearling Path (80/1)

Verdict

ALFRED MUNNINGS created a big impression on his debut and can enhance his stable's excellent recent record in this contest. The Gosden stable runs 3 promising sorts in Faisal Road, Alzahir and One World and they can battle it out for minor honours with easy Musselburgh scorer Finn's Charm.
