The Gosden 8 year old superstar, Stradivarius spent the majority of his career at the top of the staying food chain but has since seen younger legs get the better of him recently.
A career that has seen him win 3 Ascot Gold Cups, 4 Goodwood Cups and a plethora of other staying races. Returning to action this season in the Yorkshire Cup, he looked his old self when handily quickening clear of Thunderous.
Trapped against the rail at Ascot, Kyprios had already made his race winning move and he’d left Stradivarius behind.
Taking on that same rival again last time out, he only just failed to reel in Kyprios to go down by only a neck. He still looks to retain plenty of ability and can gain compensation for his narrow group 1 defeat here.
