Adair: Off course since finishing only 13th in the Derby. Formerly trained in the States, winning his only start in New York last year. Very hard to assess.

All The Way: Looked St Leger type when making the running but appearing to lack finishing speed in fifth behind Oath in the Derby. Off the course since.

Elmutabaki: Progressive and was most impressive at Royal Ascot, but limitations exposed behind Fantastic Light at York.

Iscan: Second to Mutafaweq at Ascot and then unlucky when a hampered second to Yavana's Pace at Goodwood. Stays well.

Mutafaweq: Kept on well at the death when fourth to Fantastic Light in the Voltigeur at York and earlier beat Iscan at Royal Ascot. Possibly below form in the Irish Derby in between.

Praslin Island: Still a maiden and hasn't a prayer on form.

Tchaikovsky: Supplementary for the race having changed stables since finishing third to Montjeu in Irish Derby (blinkered). Winning form on softish ground.

Noushkey: No match for Ramruma on three occasions this season, though ran very well when second to her in the Oaks. Fine winner of Lancashire Oaks but flopped at York last time.

Ramruma: Unbeaten this season and winner of Oaks, Irish Oaks and Yorkshire Oaks. Should relish the trip.

Conclusion: RAMRUMA has been on the go since April but has solid credentials. Noushkey is capable of shaking the favourite up if returning to her best, but Mutafaweq could provide the biggest danger.
