Poetic Flare will be going for his third Group One of the season at Goodwood, having already won the 2000 Guineas and the St James's Palace Stakes already this season. In-between those wins were excellent efforts in the French and Irish Guineas, so it's little wonder why Unibet is listing Poetic Flare as their 4/6 favourite.
Coronation Stakes winner Alcohol Free could take on the colts for the first time, after a solid third in the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket.
Summer Mile winner Tilsit could fly the flag for Charlie Hills. Chindit could make his third Group One appearance in a row, and Lady Bowthorpe looks another likely runner for William Jarvis.
Aidan O'Brien could run shock Breeders' Cup winner, Order Of Australia and Queen Anne Stakes runner-up, Lope Y Fernandez as he bids to win his sixth Sussex Stakes. Battleground is another possible runner for the master of Ballydoyle.
Thunder Moon could make an appearance at Glorious Goodwood, but the ground will likely be a little too quick for Joseph O'Brien's raider. Derab, Naval Crown and Maximal also feature in the betting
