I think this race is almost a repeat of the Jockey Club Gold Cup.

Flat Out can run 134.8 running 2-2-1 to the stretch call on a 111 pace
Fort Larned 134.8, 1-1-1 on a 110 pace
Game on Dude 135.0, 1-1-1, on a 110.4 pace
Moreno, 134.6, 1-1-1 on a 110.8 pace
Mucho Macho Man, 134.7, 2-2-2, on a 110.0 pace
Palace Malice, 134.8, 2-2-2, on a 110.8 pace
Paynter, 135.4, 2-2-1, on a 111.2 pace
Planteur, the EURP 135.6, apparently 1-1-1

Last Gunfighter, 135.3 runs 4-4-3 and is too slow

Who is left?
Ron the Greek, 135. 5-3-1 on a 110.6 pace
Will Take Charge 135.3, 5-5-3 of a 110.4 pace

Declaration of War. In several races you can see on Youtube he runs from the middle of the pack, does not want any part of the lead, should have no problem running 5th or 6th and his race at Deauville he lost by 2 in a mile timed on firm turf in 133.4, so his mile time is 133.8. Only question is can he handle dirt? The Dundalk race showed he could handle synthetic, so my box in this race are RTG, WTC and Declaration of War.,
