A mere mile and a half separates the ten runners from that prize, and with the absence through injury of leading contender St Nicholas Abbey, it opens up various opportunities for other runners. At the top of the list of runners looking to capitalise on St Nicholas Abbey misfortune will be Cirrus Des Aigles, but Novellist and Trading Leather will be keeping a close eye on him throughout.

Cirrus Des Aigles was the world’s highest ranked horse at the start of the year, so comes with a fine pedigree. He has a good record at Ascot, where he won the 2011 QIPCO Champion Stakes and finished second to supreme Frankel in the same race the following year. The now seven year old horse finished a disappointing fifth on his return run at Saint-Cloud last month, finishing behind Saturday’s second favourite, Novellist.

Andreas Wohler-trained Novellist won that race comfortably and has seen victory in his three last starts. The German horse will be looking to following the footsteps of his compatriot Danedream, who left Ascot with the prize last year.

Pushing these two all the way will be Trading Leather, who won the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby earlier in the year. The Jim Bolger-trained horse stepped up comfortably to the mile and a half distance in that race, and Bolger will be hoping that he can repeat that performance this weekend.

Sir Michael Stoute also has a horse in the running on Saturday in the form of Hillstar, and a victory could give the trainer a record sixth victory in the event. The three year old won the King Edward VII Stakes by a length last time out.
