THE rush of money for Yucatan on Wednesday looked well-placed following Thursday's declarations for the Racing Post Trophy, as stablemate, and original favourite Capri, did not feature.
Instead, from his six entries, trainer Aidan O'Brien also relies on The Anvil and Finn McCool, with Sir John Lavery and Douglas Macarthur also scratched.
Speaking on Wednesday, O'Brien indicated that Yucatan had "progressed again", from his Beresford Stakes second behind Capri, and stopped short of saying Capri was a definite runner, adding he "could join" Yucatan.
Ten runners have been declared for the final British Group 1 of the season, with Sir Dancealot, Bay Of Poets and Raheen House also engaged.
Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere runner-up Salouen is set to go for Sylvester Kirk, with Brutal, Contrapposto and Rivet completing the field.
