The Ballydoyle handler has 22 Grade One successes to his name this year as he bids to overhaul Bobby Frankel's world record of 25 in a calendar year.

Capri, Douglas Macarthur, Finn McCool, Sir John Lavery, The Anvil and Yucatan are his options ahead of the Group One over a mile on Saturday.

Another potential Irish raider in the juvenile contest is Ger Lyons' Brutal.

Simon Crisford could be double-handed with Century Dream and Rodaini, while his old employers Godolphin have one entry in Charlie Appleby's Bay Of Poets.

Sir Michael Stoute could run City Of Joy, Mark Johnston has Frankuus in there and Brian Meehan could call upon Raheen House.

William Haggas could run Rivet, while the horse that finished second to him in the Convivial Maiden at York, Contrapposto, could reoppose for David Menuisier.

Sylvester Kirk's Salouen and David Elsworth's Sir Dancealot complete the entries.
