With nearly 7 and a half million pounds on offer to the winner it’s now the richest race in the world.
All eyes will be on last years winner Mishriff who claimed this contest last year with relative ease but this time around he looks to have a tougher task now.
His biggest threat looks to be in the form of the US raider Mandaloun who aims to make it four victories in a row after back to back success at Monmouth Park was followed by Group 3 win at Fair Grounds. He’s clearly a talented type but based on what he’s done so far he has to improve further.
Although that duo are clear in the betting I’d rather take a look elsewhere and hope to find one at much bigger odds and I hope I’ve pinpointed a French raider who looks drastically overpriced. Hailing from the lesser known yard of Cedric Rossi many overlooked Sealiway who went on to claim the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Ascot last time. He put the likes of the aforementioned Mishriff, Derby winner Adayar and the globe trotting Addeybb in their place and that looks like brilliant form. With a solid performance in The Arc and The Prix du Jockey Club he has great runs to his name and although he’s not the most prolific his current 16/1 price looks very generous. With Ryan Moore also booked for the ride, if he can overcome a sizable break and change of yard he looks a decent bet to finish in the top four.
