Having landed the this race last season and running behind Enable in the big middle distance Group Ones during her career, it is now where she is looked at as a serious mare.
Magical made a stellar return to racing having been thought to be heading for retirement, Coolmore operations have given her one more season on the track and it has looked to have paid dividends after she romped home on seasonal debut in the Group One Pretty Polly Stakes.
She backed that up in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at The Curragh and although it was not the strongest race it saw her land a hat-trick of black type events.
She took on Ghaiyyath in the Juddmonte International and was no match for the Godolphin, but reversed the form last time out when landing consecutive Irish Champion Stakes.
She is looking to do the same in this race and has every chance being the most decorated hors in the field with seven Group Ones to her name.
