This was won last year in game and gutsy fashion by the popular Big Orange, but unfortunately Michael Bell’s lovable seven-year-old won’t be back to defend his crown this season due to injury.

The antepost favourite for this race for the third year running is the classy Ballydoyle inmate Order Of St George who was called a few names when failing to go past Big Orange in the race last year but has heaps of top class form to his name. He bolted up in the race back in 2016 from an unpromising position and very few horses who contest this race have the ability to finish third and fourth in two different renewals of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. He destroyed a decent enough Irish St. Leger field and stayed on gamely to cap off his season with a Group 1 success in the Long Distance Cup on Champions Day. He looked as good as ever when winning the Group 3 Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan on his return and he is the one they all have to beat in the top staying events this season.

Stradivarius is the rising star of this division having had a breakout season as a three-year-old where he made the podium in every single start and beat Big Orange to claim the Group 1 Goodwood Cup. He progressed with every start last year and although he will need to improve again with the lack of a weight allowance now as a four-year-old there is every possibility that he will do so. He is a very nicely bred type who shows a willing attitude in all his starts and seems to stay all day, this test looks sure to suit and he’s a big player.

Often playing the bridesmaid role behind Order Of St George in recent times has been Jessie Harrington’s Torcedor. He took a few people by surprise last year when winning the Vintage Crop Stakes with the short-priced Order Of St George a length and a half behind him in second and although that rival reversed the form three times in a row following that result he was not disgraced in any of those races. A well below par run at Meydan can be easily forgiven and he is better judged on his demolition of a decent enough field in the Sagaro Stakes at Ascot recently. He has a tad to find with the very best in this divison but is a classy performer in his own right and not one to be ruling out.

Whether Alain De Royer-Dupre will sent Vazirabad to the Royal meeting or not is a big question mark but there is no doubting that he’d be a huge player if lining up on the day. He has won fourteen of his twenty-one starts under rules and finished runner-up on a further five occasions. These wins have included three Group 1s, six Group 2s and three Group 3s the most recent of which came when he won the Dubai World Cup for the third year running. He was dossing in front which explains the winning margin over Sheikhzayedroad of just a length but he was much the best on that occasion and if running to that level at Ascot it would take a classy performance to beat him.
