The feature race of the afternoon is the Group One Prix du Cadran over 2m4f and we can't look past the favourite Kyprios who will be looking to keep his unbeaten streak going.
Running twice as a juvenile winning on debut over 1m 1/2f at Galway, he then went to Newmarket in the 1m2f Zetland Stakes and found it tough on just his second start.
Only ran twice as a three year old, he again won on seasonal debut at Cork and was then sent to Lingfield in the Listed Derby Trial at Lingfield where he didn't handle the very soft ground conditions.
He seems to have now come into his own as a four year old winning both his starts this term, starting over 1m6f in the Listed Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan.
Improving again for that run he went to Leopardstown and took the Group Three Levmoss Stakes by 14 lengths, to really put himself in the mix for the Gold Cup.
Since then he has extended his unbeaten record to five races, landing a hat-trick of Group One events, starting with the Group One at Royal Ascot, then the Goodwood Cup at Glorious Goodwood and then last time out on Irish Champions Weekend when landing the Group One Irish St Leger.
The soft ground is against him but he holds by far the best form in the race and should be tough to beat.
