The Godolphin colt, a strong-finishing third last time, was one of 15 still in the Group 1 at the five-day acceptance stage for the contest in which So You Think
will attempt to win the race for the second year running on his final career start.
There was no place among the field for Carlton House, the horse who split So You Think
and Farhh at Ascot, but last year's King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Nathaniel, Dubai World Cup winner Monterosso and ex-Italian Group 1 winner Crackerjack King, plus Dubai Duty Free winner Cityscape and 2010 Eclipse winner Twice Over, bring considerable depth to the line-up.
The Eclipse, the first all aged Group 1 race of the season in Britain run at beyond 6f, has attracted three from this year's Classic generation with Dante Stakes winner and Derby sixth Bonfire joined by Ballydoyle's UAE Derby winner Daddy Long Legs, and Listed winner Cogito, eighth in the St James's Palace Stakes.
