Verdict

Godolphin are represented by SPRING OF FAME and Once More Dubai but Frankie Dettori sticks with regular partner Holberg, who was last seen in the Ascot Gold Cup in June. He's a winner from 7f to 2m but is probably more of a stayer these days and could find this on the short side. Frankie was on board Honour System when he won here last month and Silvestre De Sousa, who has been in fine form at the Carnival, will ensure he gets competitive and should again hold runner-up Lyssio. Spring Of Fame came from a very long way back when runner-up to Prince Bishop last time and with a more positive ride is taken to land the spoils. No Carnival fixture would be complete without the presence of Mr Brock, who made a promising comeback in Prince Bishop's race after a long absence and should be thereabouts while Jamr has done brilliantly since transferring here though a 4lb rise for scrambling home last time may prevent a four-timer and Sirvino, who wasn't far behind, can turn the tables. Ottoman Empire returned from a very long break with an eye-catching run over slightly further a month ago and is another on the short-list in a tough opener.
