Trainer: Aidan O’Brien
Jockey: Ryan Moore
The class horse of this field, having won the derby at Epsom last year although that was the last time, he tasted victory. He has rediscovered some of his form and should be hard to beat here.
The Irish Derby in which he finished second in was a mess and the King George on soft ground wouldn’t have suited but his runs in the Irish Champion Stakes and Breeders Cup were encouraging.
He was second in the recent Group one Coronation Cup and should be fully wound up for this,
