Non-runner in several key staying races when it's been fast ground this season; however, he ran away with this race last year and finished comfortably on top in the Goodwood Cup this July and 2m4f Prix du Cadran two weeks ago; while soft ground would seemingly be preferable, good to soft is probably okay; this is quite a quick return to action but he's the one to beat.

1-4 in this race; well short of best form this season, no match for Trueshan two weeks ago

The swashbuckling hero of three Gold Cups here and of so many other top-level staying races; however, he has contested the last four runnings of this prize and won in only 2018, and he's been well short of his best form this season, notwithstanding three wins; put in his place when second to Trueshan at Longchamp two weeks ago and whether less testing ground today can see him recapture past glories remains to be seen.

Won in USA in June on his only outing over 2m; staying-on third in Irish St Leger latest

Transformed since last August; won Belmont Gold Cup in USA in June on his only outing over 2m, which did not require his best form, but his good, staying-on third in the Irish St Leger on latest start suggested he will prove fully effective at this trip; cheekpieces enlisted; each-way chance.

Beaten a neck in the St Leger last September; not so hot since and missed most of 2021

Beaten a neck in the St Leger last September and narrowly made all when 1-2 in 1m6f Listed race here next time; second in Qatar in February was lucrative but not seen again until a conditions stakes at Salisbury five weeks ago when he was again below form, at 4-6; may have needed that run but he requires a career best on this first attempt at 2m in first headgear.

Having a solid season (2m latest) but this demands far more of him; headgear first time

Having a solid season and was runner-up in a Group 3 at Newmarket on latest outing when attempting 2m for the first time; a prominent finish in this race, however, demands far more of him; headgear first time.

Minor honours in his five Group races, most notably finishing nearly 5l third in the St Leger at Doncaster (14.5f, good to soft) where he stuck to his guns very well; comprehensively turned over when evens in Group 3 at the Curragh on step up to 2m on latest outing but there's little to no doubt that he stays; needs to bounce back from that performance.

First go at 2m; did very well at 1m6f in 2019 and won 1m4f Gr 3 on just second run since

Won two good 1m6f handicaps at York in 2019 (tremendously impressive on second occasion) and went down by a neck to Trueshan on final run that year; unlike that rival, hardly anything has been seen of him since but winning a 1m4f Group 3 on Kempton AW six weeks ago suggested he can reach new heights, including as 1m6f (unraced beyond that) seemed to suit him so well as 3yo.

Needs far better form than anything in 2020 or 2021; last in Irish St Leger latest start

Close third in 2m4f Gold Cup here in 2019 and went very close in that year's Melbourne Cup over 2m but not so good in the latter race last year and that's his entire record at 2m+; this step back up in trip needs a very positive response because he needs far better form than any he's produced in 2020 or 2021; came last in the Irish St Leger on latest outing.

Won the 2m Northumberland Plate on AW in June but his best effort back on turf since was over 1m6f and he was tailed off in the 2m2f Cesarewitch last Saturday; even his best form gives him little chance at this level.

Improvement almost every time this season and it's been on a major scale; graduated from good handicaps when fifth of nine in Group 2 at Longchamp (1m7f, very soft) two weeks ago, soon outpaced when the action began in earnest but rallying strongly at the finish; has more to offer as a stayer but he's taking on some of the very best in that division today.
