The American-bred colt won the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Juddmonte International at York during the summer and will run on dirt for the first time at the weekend.
He will be jockey Joseph O'Brien's only ride at the meeting.
The other European runner in the Classic is Marco Botti's Planteur who will break from stall three.
Last year's one-two Fort Larned (seven) and Game On Dude (nine) are back again with Mucho Macho Man leaving gate six.
Sky Bet cut Game On Dude to 5/2 favourite from 3/1 and spokesman Michael Shinners said: "Bob Baffert likes his draw in nine because he's outside the pace horses in the race and following positive track reports, too, we went 5/2 from 3s.
"He's been beaten in the Classic the last two years but everything points to a big run this time around and he looks a worthy favourite."
