Form & Verdict

4-4 this season and has developed into a stayer of the highest calibre, winning twice over 1m6f on home soil (Listed/Group 3) before landing the 2m4f Group 1 Ascot Gold Cup; upheld that form with fourth-placed Stradivarius in the 2m Goodwood Cup; sets a very high standard, and should have no problem coping with the drop in trip; ground should be fine.

Last season's top stayer with a 6-6 record, including the Gold Cup here and best form when 20l winner (hanging badly when clear) on very soft over 2m4f in the Prix du Cadran; odds on but ring-rusty in the 1m6f Irish St Leger six weeks ago on return from injury, keeping on into second of four which connections reportedly assess as a satisfactory stepping stone to this race; the one to beat on peak form but needs a major step forward from that latest run.

High-class Flat stayer with Group 1 honours on the board and the recent rain is a blessing; however, has left it late to go hurdling and will need to jump with greater conviction than at Punchestown (2m4f, soft) where joined on the line by Ladybank; drop to 2m is a further cause for concern.
