A son of the late Galileo, Mogul travels over from Ireland for Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore.
This 4 year old captured the Gordon Stakes at this meeting last year for connections when just holding off Highland Chief after a disappointing run in the Derby.
He left his classic flop behind to win here at Goodwood and then to easily win the Grand Prix de Paris.
He took another major step forward in group company to win the Hong Kong Vase under Ryan Moore at Sha Tin in December.
He’s not managed to regain the winning thread as a 4 year old however and has been well beaten in his three starts this campaign.
Most recently coming last in the Coronation Cup behind Pyledriver, he weakened alarmingly out of contention to finish 40 lengths behind the winner.
If a drop in grade brings him back to his best he should be difficult to beat here.
