This has gone for export every year since 2012 and ROARING LION rates a safe bet to maintain that trend. Study Of Man may prove second-best

Globetrotter who was sixth in the Arlington Million last month. Slightly unfortunate not to break his long losing run when second at the Curragh last time out. Needs significantly more to feature in this company though.
No further success since beating Poet's Word in last season's Huxley Stakes at Chester

Winner of the Lockinge at Newbury in May, but she has struggled for form in three starts since. Excused her effort in a French Group 1 last time out, (badly stumbled entering straight) but she is still arriving here with plenty to prove at present.

Has had an excellent season, with his third-place finish in the Derby preceding Group 1 wins in the Eclipse and the Juddmonte International. This looks the obvious next step. And he looks the one that they all have to beat today.
Derby third clearly sets the standard here following Coral-Eclipse and Juddmonte wins

Winner of the Group 1 National Stakes at the Curragh as a juvenile. Made his belated seasonal reappearance back at that venue last month. Entitled to strip fitter for that run, but others in this line-up have shown far stronger form to date.
Fourth to Saxon Warrior in Racing Post Trophy, belated seasonal debut was sub-standard

Progressive filly who landed the Grade 1 Belmont Oaks on her penultimate start. She failed to match that level of form in the Beverly D Stakes at Arlington afterwards, however, and she looks up against it in this company on the back of that run.
Has had her big moment this term winning Grade 1 Belmont Oaks, huge task against the colts
