Top weight but is stepping back in grade and is an interesting runner trained by Michael Bell, with Oisin Murphy booked this time.

4.00: Theatre Honours 11/8
James Doyle employed to ride this Godolphin horse but was on board when a solid second to Quddwah, who has now been given a rating of 95.

7.00: Dark Kestrel 10/11
Trainers John & Thady Gosden have an incredible strike rate on the all-weather when three-year-olds this season, with 12 winners from just 51 runners in total and an even better strike rate with four-year-olds.
They’re in-form recently too with 12 winners in 39 giving a 31% strike-rate.
If that’s not enough when they combine with Robert Havlin on the all-weather their success rate is even higher!
