The former, trained by Michael Bell, has not been seen since he finished second in the Goodwood Cup behind the Gosden-trained Stradivarius, who also features amongst 19 confirmations.

Irish St Leger winner Order Of St George is one of three possible runners for O'Brien, who has also left in Idaho and Seventh Heaven.

Last year's winner Sheikhzayedroad is the sole representative for trainer David Simcock, while Doncaster Cup scorer Desert Skyline could also be involved for the David Elsworth team.

Royal runner Dartmouth, trained by Sir Michael Stoute, has been supplemented for the race.
