Smallest field for years, but plenty of quality and plenty of interest.
Churchill's been the long time favourite. Galileo colt, won 5 from 6. No prep run. Easing just a little as race time approaches. 11/8
Barney Roy the firmer. Excelebration colt. Godolphin purchase. Looked great in his prep at Newbury. 7/2
Al Wuikair. Unbeaten French colt by Dream Ahead. Beat a G1 winner in his prep Maisons-Lafitte. Trained by the master Andre Fabre. The French haven't won the race for more than 20 years. 5/1
Eminent. Frankel colt owned by Sir Peter Vela, the owner of NZ Bloodstock. Won 2/2, including the Craven at this course about a fortnight ago. Frankel's first chance for a Classic winner.
Frankel's also got Godolphin second stringer, Dream Castle.
Should be a cracker!
