This 6 year old has won plenty of races so far in his career ranging from 6f to 1m on good ground and on the all-weather which shows his versatility.

Finished 2 ¼ lengths behind Annapolis when fifth of 11 other rivals on his last outing in the Grade 1 Coolmore Turf Mile Stakes at Keeneland over a mile last month. Could land a telling blow if bouncing back to his best.

Not out of things.

Interesting to see that Ryan Moore takes the ride on this gelding as his name does not usually surround this horse.

He ran in the race last year and did not disgrace himself whatsoever, but it looks that he may find a few too strong again.

Was a decent second last time out in a Group 1 at Haydock, but will have to run to those levels again. Possibilities.

Days: 28

Jockey and trainer won this race last year with Golden Pal and there is absolutely no reason why he cannot go on and win again this time round.

Trainer runs three in the race, but the favourite here has to be his best chance.This horse has been spoken about in such high regard, but disappointed when seen in Britain.

He has won eight races at 5f on good ground and was victorious on his latest outing in the Grade 2 Woodford S. Presented by FanDuel over course and distance. The one they all have to beat.

Yet another outsider who has it all to do here where he has to face much stiffer competition which will be difficult for him.

Needs to become more consistent, but looks like he will be winning races in weaker contests in the future.

OR: N/A
Days: 21

Trainer Charlie Appleby runs two in this year’s race with both being double digit prices in the market. Will Buick takes the ride meaning Creative Force may have more of a chance than his stablemate.

Third of 18 behind Kinross on his latest outing in the Group 1 QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes at Ascot last month, but he has proven in the past that he has all the ability required to feature in Graded company. Not ruled out for team Godolphin.

Wesley Ward’s second runner in the race and she is a talented filly who has shown previously just what she is capable of.

She has won at Ascot when she just got the better of her rival that day and on her latest outing in the Grade 3 Mint Ladies Sprint Stakes at Kentucky Downs in September, she beat Bay Storm by a short head.

Merits serious consideration regardless of what seems a big price for a filly of her quality.

This 5 year old mare has been nothing short of excellent in recent times winning races in such impressive fashion.

She got the better of The Platinum Queen at York in the Nunthorpe then backed that performance up next time out at The Curragh winning another Group 1 by 3 ¼ lengths.

She looks primed for a race like this and has to be feared most behind Golden Pal. Very much one to be keen on.

Days: 21

Trainer Charlie Appleby’s second runner and one who will do very well to win this considering what sort of form he has shown recently.

Has not really looked the same horse late this year so a revival will need to be on the cards for this son of Dubawi.

Disappointing when seen in the last three Group 1 races so he is hard to fancy, but at the same time cannot be ruled out for Godolphin.

Winner of six races from 6f to 7f on good and good to soft ground. A winner at a fairly big price of 11/1 in the Grade 2 FanDuel Turf Sprint Stakes at Kentucky Downs over 6f on good ground on his latest outing in September, beating Artemus Citylimits who he faces again here by a neck.

Has not beaten many rivals of note so will find it difficult this time round.

N/A

Days: 56

Trainer Wesley Ward’s third and final runner in this and one that has the least chance if looking at the market.

Has not done too badly in his career so far, but may struggle to pounce on rivals here in such a hot contest.

Third of 11 last time out in the Grade 2 FanDuel Turf Sprint Stakes at Kentucky Downs over 6f in September, but this requires much more.

Has struggled over 6f apart from when winning a Group 3 at The Curragh and drops down in trip here to 5f.

Not sure what to expect as he will have to adapt to surroundings and the new distance, but potential for it to bring more out of him.

One at a bigger price who could feature if the best version of himself turns up.

This 3 year old filly has won three times over 6f on ground varying from good to firm to soft.

Was beaten 4 ½ lengths behind The Platinum Queen when 10th of 19 on her latest outing in the Group 1 Prix De L'Abbaye at Longchamp over 5f last month.

She has recently moved yards so she will be having her first run for a new stable here, and she has a bit to find with some of these, but remains an unknown for the time being.

This 5 year old mare has won a number of sprints on the all-weather, but may fail to establish herself back on turf.

Won on her latest outing in the Grade 3 Franklin Stakes over course and distance last month, but has not achieved as much compared to the rest of the field.

Others hold more pressing claims.

The outsider of the field and one who looks totally opposable when comparing form to others. He is well held up on that evidence and is hard to fancy so will need a career best to even challenge rivals here.

Ridiculously tough ask.
