The worthy favourite for the Group Two event is the Charlie Appleby trained Al Suhail who threatened to be a very special horse for Godolphin, but although showing plenty of ability has never reached the heights they thought he would as of yet.
Having finished second on his final start as a juvenile in the Group Three Autumn Stakes, on his first start as a three year old he was thrown into the Group One 2000 Guineas, where he massively underperformed.
He was only seen once more as a three year old bouncing back to form in the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Stakes at Newmarket, when taking the event by six lengths.
Saved for a campaign in Meydan earlier this year, he finished third in March on his first start as a four year old after a break in Group One company.
Pitched back into a similar sphere next time out he put in his annual poor performance, but last time got back to somewhere near his best in the Group Two Summer Mile at Ascot when a close third behind Tilsit and Century Dream.
He is a horse that could still turn into the superstar he threatened to become and has been well backed for this event.
