A Goodwood Cup swansong awaits Stardivarius, who bids for a 5th win in the race.
What's interesting here is that the troubled passage encountered by Stradivarius when finishing 3rd in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, has led owner Bjorn Nielsen to return to Andrea Atzeni, who partnered Stradivarius to his first 2 Goodwood Cup wins.
He re-opposes old foe, and new star, Kyprios, who got the run on him in last month's Gold Cup, and although the younger and most progressive in the field, Aidan O'Brien's colt does have a point to prove in getting the better of Stradivarius with a clearer run.
Alan King's Trueshan also remains set to run at this late stage and may just take his chance if racing upon genuinely good ground, this comes following an unbelievable Northumberland Plate victory when giving away 19lbs to his field.
An interesting proposition, however all eyes will be firmly fixed on Stradivarius.
