Placed in the Derby at Epsom and the Irish equivalent, the Aidan O'Brien-trained three-year-old was a comfortable winner of the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York last time out.

O'Brien can also call on Royal Ascot and Curragh Cup winner Sword Fighter, Housesofparliament, Kellstorm, The Major General, Triplicate and Unicorn.

Jim Bolger could run Twilight Payment in the Godolphin colours, while Pat Shanahan has left in The Tartan Spartan.
