Mike De Kock is responsible for five of the entries. Christophe Soumillon should have had the pick and has gone for the unbeaten Vercingetorix, the winner of all four starts in South Africa the latest being a Group 1 at Greyville in June. The stable's El Estruendoso just hasn't been lasting home and is 1lb worse off for his defeat by Gabrial over the course and distance three weeks ago when Tarbawi was close behind. Gale Force Ten landed the Jersey Stakes for Aidan O'Brien last summer and will be better for his recent debut for the De Kock operation. CODE OF HONOR started favourite on his return to action a month ago but never got serious. He had previously finished a short-head behind Educate in the Cambridgeshire where he was undoubtedly unfortunate - he can put that latest run behind him and take this. Forjatt landed a Group 3 last month though that was on Jebel Ali's Dirt surface but the Irish are enjoying an excellent Carnival so Captain Joy could build on his opening run three weeks ago.
