STRADIVARIUS is back up in trip after two efforts over 1m4f and punters fancy him to get back to winning ways today. He won this contest in 2019 before losing by a nose to Kew Gardens last year. The superstar stayer was emphatic when last seen here in the Gold Cup in June and punters think we could see a similar performance this afternoon.

PALACE PIER is still unbeaten in his career, with two Group 1 successes to his name this season. John Gosden three-year-old is potentially the best miler on the planet right now and he can confirm that today. He has shown he can handle testing conditions, so the ground today will pose no problem. Punters can’t see past the colt.

MAGICAL has had yet another incredible season and is being very well backed to win this for the second year in a row. Her latest victory was a stunning performance in the Irish Champion Stakes where she got the better of the odds-on favourite Ghaiyyath. A sensational seven Group One’s in her career so far and an eighth is very much on the cards.
