Ladbrokes St Leger hero Masked Marvel heads 12 five-day entries for the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket.
John Gosden's four-year-old finished his campaign last season when bringing up the rear in the Arc at Longchamp but previously had his finest hour in the Town Moor Classic when slamming Brown Panther by three lengths.
Among his potential rivals are Dunaden and Red Cadeaux, who were involved in a thrilling outcome to the Melbourne Cup before the pair then met again in the Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin.
Other notables include Goldolphin's duo of Modun and Sadeek's Song while Sir Michael Stoute could allow the progressive Fiorente to make his seasonal reappearance.
Andre Fabre has won the Group 2 contest twice since 2006 and he could let Meandre take his chance.
Al Kazeem, Blue Bajan, Eternal Heart, Highland Castle and Quest For Peace complete the potential line-up.
