Chief among them being Lethal Force looking for his 3rd straight G1 win after back to back wins in the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes & G1 July Cup. Other notables include Gordon Lord Byron, 2nd behind Darwin in the G3 Minstrel Stakes in Ireland last time out. Gale Force Ten, winner of G3 Jersey Stakes and 2nd in the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas, and Don Bosco, dropping back in trip from racing primarly at 8, 9, & 10f. Don Bosco was last seen finishing 3rd behind Intello in the G3 Prix Messidor.
