They are Nasij (Ed Dunlop), Londonnetdotcom (Mick Channon), Soviet Song (James Fanshawe), Crystal Star (Sir Michael Stoute), Duty Paid (David Elsworth), Pearl Dance (John Gosden), plus the Godolphin pair, Anyaas and Echoes In Eternity. Battle Chant (Ed Dunlop), Skelligs Rock (B Duke) and Magistretti (Neville Callaghan), all hold entries in the French Derby trial, the Group One Prix Lupin, on the same card.
