Trainer Charlie Appleby hopes Loxley will put on a good display at Kempton to keep him in contention for a trip to Dubai.
Despite winning the Grand Prix de Deauville in August 2018, the four-year-old has not won any of his previous six starts.
He has finished second in his last two previous Listed outings – firstly at the Mukhadram Godolphin Stakes at Newmarket then the Matchbook Floodlit Stakes at Kempton.
He is set for a run in the 32Red Wild Flower Stakes at the Surrey racecourse.
He will hope to bridge the gap to John Gosden's Weekender - the only horse in the field with a higher rating.
Appleby is hopeful a good result will stand him in good stead for a trip to the Middle East.
"Loxley has put up solid efforts on his last two runs and ran a good race over this course and distance last time out behind Young Rascal, who is a very good horse," said Appleby.
"He has a bit to find on the book with Weekender - but if Loxley reproduces his last two performances, it should make him very competitive.
"Hopefully, he can run another good race, and we can look at taking him out to Dubai again for some of the nice races during the Carnival there."
