Japan

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Ryan Moore Age: 5

Dual Group 1 winner at 3 yrs but just the one creditable effort last season (third in Eclipse). However, ran very well when third in Derby here and had a nice confidence booster at Chester on return.

Highland Chief

Trainer: Paul & Oliver Cole Jockey: David Probert Age: 4

Smart form when defying top weight in a handicap at Royal Ascot on return last season and runner-up in Group 2s at Goodwood (behind Mogul) and York (behind Pyledriver). Tongue strap applied.

Mogul

Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Seamie Heffernan Age: 4

High-class colt who came good in second half of his 3-y-o campaign, winning Group 1s at Longchamp (Grand Prix de Paris) and Sha Tin (Hong Kong Vase). Shaped as if needing run both starts this term.

Pyledriver

Trainer: William Muir & Chris Grassick Jockey: Martin Dwyer Age: 4

Achieved a very smart level of form as a 3-y-o with wins in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot and Great Voltigeur at York. Made a satisfactory return at Newmarket and not to be underestimated.

Al Aasy

Trainer: William Haggas Jockey: Jim Crowley Age: 4

Highly-progressive colt who won 2 Group 3s at Newbury in impressive fashion this term, barely coming off bridle for most recent win. Already capable of borderline top-class form and the one to beat.

Albaflora

Trainer: Ralph Beckett Jockey: Frankie Dettori Age: 4

Reached a smart level last season and took form up another notch when running away with listed race at Ascot on return, relishing emphasis on stamina in testing conditions. More needed here, though.
