King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes

With a roll of honour featuring the likes of Mill Reef, Dancing Brave and Lammtarra, it is no wonder the King George VI stakes is considered one of the Premier races in the world.

Ultra Impressive Hardwicke Stakes winner Telescope heads the market hoping to give Sir Michael Stoute a record breaking sixth win in the race and further enhance his Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe chances.

Joining him at the top of the market is Epsom Oaks winner Taghoodra, the three year old receiving a healthy weight allowance of 15lb from the older runners. Winning this she would follow in the footsteps of Pawnesse, the last three-year-old filly to land the spoils in 1976.

Should neither of these land the odds, the race looks wide open with the likes of Magician and Trading Leather looking to win it for Ireland and Flintshire the sole French raider aiming to become the second Gallic winner this century.
