The three year old, last season lit up the racing world when landing all six of his contests including the Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot and after that landing back to back Group Ones in the National Stakes in Ireland and the Dewhurst at Newmarket.
Having never raced over a mile he stepped up for his seasonal debut this term in the 2000 Guineas where he finished a strong third behind Kameko and Wichita.
He was turned around quickly for the St James's Palace Stakes and although running another great race he could only finish second to the unbeaten Palace Pier.
At both his tries at a mile this season he has been outstayed, Appleby then decided to drop him back to seven furlongs and he got off the mark for the season in the Prix Jean Prat, to land his first Group One of the year.
He has not been seen since mid July and coming here fresh off the back of a break makes him the one to beat.
