Aidan O'Brien won this prize for the fourth time with the brilliant filly Minding 12 months ago and has whittled his potential team down to four.
Heading the quartet is dual 2000 Guineas hero Churchill and he could be joined by triple Group One-winning filly Roly Poly, as well as stablemates Lancaster Bomber and Sir John Lavery.
Andrew Balding is set to field Here Comes When and the fast-improving Beat The Bank.
Other contenders include David Simcock's Breton Rock and the Andre Fabre-trained Al Wukair.
