Jim Crowley has come in for the ride on Home Of The Brave

The Hugo Palmer-trained four-year-old has been in great heart this season, winning at Leicester and Haydock and finishing second in the Lennox Stakes to Dutch Connection.

With William Buick in America to ride Tryster in the Arlington Million and James Doyle suspended, Crowley steps into the breach.

Also running in the Godolphin colours is John Gosden's Richard Pankhurst

Sir Michael Stoute's Convey lines up on the back of a confidence boosting win at Pontefract while Markaz, behind Home Of The Brave at Goodwood, represents Owen Burrows.

Bunbury Cup winner Golden Steps is up in class for Marco Botti with Jallota and Dark Emerald completing the field.

Sky Bet odds: 6/4 Home Of The Brave; 9/4 Convey; 13/2 Markaz; 10/1 Jallota; 12/1 Dark Emerald, Golden Steps; 14/1 Richard Pankhurst
