Verdict

STRADIVARIUS holds outstanding claims in his bid for an eleventh straight Group win and a sixth career Group 1 success having won this race in good style last year, despite a big drift in the betting pre-race. Kew Gardens can be considered his main danger with this step up in trip probably in his favour provided he handles conditions. Bin Battuta won his prep-race for this in good fashion and may be another suited by the step up in trip.
