Sir Michael Stoute, whose sole success in the mile-and-three-quarter prize came from Conduit in 2008, has left in Gordon Stakes winner Crystal Ocean.

Goodwood Cup hero Stradivarius is one of two entries, from an initial seven, alongside Ribblesdale Stakes winner Coronet that have been left in by trainer John Gosden.

Other notable entries include the Brian Meehan-trained Raheen House, winner of the Bahrain Trophy at Newmarket, and Defoe, from the yard of Roger Varian, who made it four out of four this season in the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury.
