seems to hold the aces in his bid to become the third three-time winner of this great event. John Gosden's star stayer has lost his veneer of invincibility after successive defeats but his Coronation Cup run recently was a perfect prep for this. He's 5-5 racing beyond two-miles and can break the will of his rivals late on. Four-year-olds have won six of the last eight Gold Cups and Nayef Road
took another step forward when winning the Sagaro at Newcastle recently. He's a lively player, while Moonlight Spirit
can also get in the scrap for places. The third of that generation, Technician
, would have his claims enhanced by any moisture that gets into the ground.
