Mark Johnston and Richard Hannon have half of the 16-strong field between them though all should be thwarted by Mick Channon's JALLOTA, whose performances at Group level - particularly his close fourth to Nay Nay Never in the Group 1 Prix Morny at Deauville last time - puts him a long way clear on form. However, there are likely to be a few with the potential to do better including the filly Halljoy, who gets plenty of allowances and hasn't been beaten far at Group level in her last two starts. Toofi has shown enough in his two starts here to suggest he can get competitive while Bon Voyage looks best of the Hannon trio and Lanark the pick of the Johnston quintet under Joe Fanning.
