Weight: 9-1
OR: 115
Days: 28

The favourite for the Group One is Chindit and he has shown his class on the big stage this term when being unbeaten on all three of his starts to date and having landed the Group Two Champagne Stakes last time out.

The son of Wootton Bassett started his career off at Doncaster when landing a decent maiden and off the back of that scored again at Ascot in July.

The form of that race has been massively franked with the Second, Third and Fourth from that race since going on to win in nice company.

Chindit on his last run showed how good he could really be when taking his first Group race and with his trainer singing his praises at home, he has to have a leading chance.

Joseph Patrick O'Brien

OR: N/A
Days: 27

The son of Zoffany extended his unbeaten run to two races when landing the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes at The Curragh and before that won over the same course and distance in a maiden.

The juvenile took a huge step forward to land the black type event that was last year won by Pinatubo and they look to be following in the footsteps of the superstar by heading to the Dewhurst next time out.

Off the back of his win he went to favourite for this event and is now battling it out with Chindit at the top of the market, but if running to the same form as his Curragh win he is the leading contender.

Richard Hannon
Age: 2
Weight: 9-1
OR: 109
Days: 48

Etonian is Richard Hannon's second string in the race but has just as good a chance as any off the back of what he has produced this term.

The juvenile is unbeaten in both his starts to date landing a maiden at Sandown over seven furlongs on debut in emphatic style and then backing that up over the same course and distance next time out.

He managed to win the Group Three Solario Stakes that was won by Too Darn Hot on his road to landing this contest and he will only improve from what he has done so far.

He has not been seen on softish ground and if handling that could be a live player at a double figure price.

Days: 21

The two year old son of Showcasing has been a shining light for the yard this term, having ran a nice race on debut to finish fourth at Newbury he has since gone unbeaten in two smart contests.

He broke his duck at Glorious Goodwood when taking a hot maiden event that has since had the form franked with second and fifth in the race going on to win.

He stepped up into Group Two company in the Mill Reef Stakes and with many of the horses being proven in better company than Alkumait he was under appreciated in the market and went on to land the spoils at 8/1.

He showed he could handle it against some of the best juveniles over six furlongs and stepping up to Group One company in the Dewhurst is the next logical step for the youngster.

Days: 28

Albasheer looks a really smart recruit for Owen Burrows who has had a superb season with his runners this term and he will has a great chance of landing Group One glory if this youngster can reverse some form.

The juvenile started his career off at Doncaster and he bolted up by over six lengths in a decent maiden over seven furlongs on quick ground.

He then went back over the same course and distance for the Group Two Champagne Stakes and although running a big race could only finish second to Chindit.

That form line is very strong but he will need to reverse the form with the favourite to win the event.

The juvenile has shown plenty of ability on both his starts to date, getting off the mark a the first time of asking over seven furlongs at Leopardstown and then backing that up with a good second at The Curragh.

The son of Lope De Vega has shown he can handle both good and soft conditions meaning if more rain keeps coming before the race it should not phase him.

Last time out he gave a career best performance when stepping up to a mile and landing the Group Two Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown by over three lengths and that looks solid form.

Each way claims.

Days: 27

Wembley is one of Aidan O'Brien's leading contenders in the race and the handler has a cracking record in the race winning it six times overall.

This two year old has been fairly consistent to date running five times, winning once and placing in all of his other four races.

Having got off the mark two starts ago at Roscommon it looks as though soft or heavy ground could be the best surface for this colt .

However, he has been versatile running well on good ground aswell having finished second behind Thunder Moon last time out in the Group One National Stakes at The Curragh.

The King Power Racing owned colt has been seen three times this season, finishing second on two occassions but also getting off the mark at the second time of asking.

The juvenile made his debut at Windsor on soft ground behind the likeable Bahrain Pride who went on to frank the form winning next time out.

Fivethousandtoone also franked the form of that race when winning easily at Newcastle and off the back of that finished a narrow second to Alkumait in the Group Two Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury.

That looks good form and having proven form on soft could make him a big player if coming on for his latest run.

Age: 2
Weight: 9-1
OR: N/A
Days: 27

St Mark's Basilica is another stand out runner for the Aidan O'Brien team and although needing to improve to beat some of these the Frankie Dettori factor on board could see him get some market support.

The son of Siyouni has been seen four times in his career finishing second in a fair maiden on debut and then stepping up to Group One company and finishing midfield.

He finally got off the mark over six furlongs on soft at the Curragh and backed that up in the Group One Vincent O'Brien national Stakes over seven furlongs when third behind Thunder Moon and stablemate Wembley.

Improvement is needed but does have place claims off the back of that third.

Days: 14

Her majesty The Queen's horse has ran five times during his career, starting off at Newmarket in a hot Novices Stakes where he finished a good third behind a smart type for Mark Johnston.

Since then the colt has landed two nice events, winning the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at the Royal meeting and then backing that up at Newmarket in the Group Two July Stakes.

The natural progression for the juvenile was to step up to black type company and at Deauville in the Prix Morny he entered his first Group One event and with the heavy ground and class of field against him, he ran no sort of race.

He was tried again in Group One company and although fairing better than his first experience still could only finish fourth of eight.

He looks a really nice horse that just can't cut at the top level especially stepping up in trip.

Days: 21

Ralph Beckett has been a trainer in fine form over the last month or so and he has a runner that is making his first appearance for the yard.

The son of Kodiac finished has raced three times to date, getting of the mark on debut and backing that up with a good second at York in the Gimcrack behind Minzaal.

He was tried at six furlongs again for the Group Two Mill Reef Stakes and could only finish seventh of 8 runners and it looks like he needs the ground as soft as possible to out run his odds.

Days: 28

Devious Company holds plenty of ability but maybe not at Group One level and should find some of these runners just a bit to good for him.

The youngster is one of the most exposed runners in the field running seven times and although winning twice and placing in three other events it has come in lesser company.

He stepped up to better races on his last to starts at The Curragh and Doncaster and has finished near the back of the field and we cant see that changing in this event.

Brian Meehan does not have many Group One runners nowadays and this son of No Nay Never will have to improve a huge amount to claim glory against these proven individuals.

He has been seen twice on a racecourse, needing his debut at Kempton back in September and then later in the month getting off the mark in good style at Chelmsford.

Shoving him in this black type race looks ambitious off the back of one all weather win and he is best watched.

The final runner of the race is the Jim Bolger trained Poetic Flare who looks a nice son of Dawn Approach but seven furlongs looks a big stretch for him on his second run.

He is one of the most unexposed runners in the field having been seen once back in March when getting off the mark on debut at Naas in 5.5 furlong maiden.

Being thrown into the Dewhurst off the back of a break looks a slight worry and it would be a huge shock to see him win.
