Soft Falling Rain: Joel aim
Mike de Kock's Soft Falling Rain will aim to avenge the first defeat of his career in the Nayef Joel Stakes at Newmarket on Friday.
A star of the Dubai Carnival, he made his first start in England in the Hungerford Stakes at Newbury but lost out to Gregorian.
Aidan O'Brien still has five of the 17 possibles, with last year's St James's Palace Stakes winner Most Improved and former American-trained Darwin among his quintet.
Jersey Stakes winner Gale Force Ten, Cristoforo Columbo and Afonso De Sousa complete the Ballydoyle team.
Last week's Sandown winner Penitent, Marcus Tregoning's Boom And Bust, Chris Wall's veteran Premio Loco and Richard Hannon's promising Montiridge are also engaged.
