Air Force Blue has the edge on experience having already been successful twice at the top level, winning the Phoenix Stakes and the National Stakes.

O'Brien has three other possibles in Lieutenant General, Shogun and Waterloo Bridge.

Supporting the Ballydoyle raid for Ireland are a pair from Jim Bolger's stable - Somerville Tattersall Stakes scorer Sanus Per Aquam and Clear Cut, runner-up on his sole start.

Mark Johnston has left in Buratino, who beat Air Force Blue in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot before finishing second to Shalaa in the Middle Park Stakes on the Rowley Mile last month.

Johnston also has Adventurous, a close third in the Somerville Tattersall, in the race and completing the line-up are Massaat and Tashweeq, both owned by Sheik Hamdan Al Maktoum, and Dean Ivory's Twin Sails.
