1. Brando (Kevin Ryan/Tom Eaves)
At least as good as ever when pushing Advertise close in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville last time and, if in the same mood, could go close again having been second in this last year.
2. Dream of Dreams (Sir Michael Stoute/Daniel Tudhope)
Another from this yard who's getting better with age, underlined by his narrow failure in the Diamond Jubilee. Poorly positioned in July Cup, so no surprise he's having another crack at this level.
3. Invincible Army (James Tate/P.J. McDonald)
Is 3 from 5 this season but has come up short on both starts in Group 1s, including in France last time behind Advertise, so expect him to struggle once more.
4. Major Jumbo (Kevin Ryan/Kevin Stott)
Produced a career best to land a listed event from the front at Chester last month but this is a whole different proposition and he's likely to be outclassed.
5. The Tin Man (James Fanshawe/Oisin Murphy)
Won this last year but he hasn't seemed the force of old so far in 2019, down the field in the Hackwood Stakes at Newbury in July.
6. Waldpfad (Dominic Moser, Germany/Andrea Atzeni)
Caused a surprise in the Hackwood Stakes at Newbury in July but was a beaten favourite in Group 2 in Germany subsequently, so probably out of his depth at this level.
7. Advertise (Non Runner)
8. Hello Youmzain (Kevin Ryan/James Doyle)
French Group 3 winner at 2 and left reappearance fourth in the Greenham well behind when upsetting Calyx here in May. Excellent third in Commonwealth Cup next time and still isn't fully exposed.
9. Khaadem (Charles Hills/Jim Crowley)
Lightly raced, progressive sprinter who produced a massive effort to land the Stewards' Cup off a mark of 107 and looks a Group-1 horse with further improvement on the cards.
10. Ten Sovereigns (Aidan O'Brien, Ireland/Ryan Moore)
Unbeaten at 2 yrs and firmly back on track following a couple of reverses when landing the July Cup at Newmarket. Struggled with drop in trip in Nunthorpe but much more chance back at 6f.
11. Fairyland (Aidan O'Brien, Ireland/Padraig Beggy)
Winner of 4 of her 5 starts at 2 yrs, including the Cheveley Park Stakes. Hasn't progressed in 2019 and well beaten in the Nunthorpe last time. Plenty to prove.
12. Forever In Dreams (Aidan Fogarty, Ireland/Billy Lee)
Pair of wins in France last term and struck at second time of asking for new yard in C&D listed event in May. Excellent second in Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and holds place claims again.
13. So Perfect (Aidan O'Brien, Ireland/Wayne Lordan)
Smart filly in her own right, underlined by an excellent third in the Nunthorpe at York, but she's not quite up to the level of a few of these rivals.
