At The Races Verdict

STRADIVARIUS has swept all before him in the staying division and returns to defend his crown from 12 months ago. John Gosden's star performer made a satisfactory beginning to his season in the Yorkshire Cup, beating Southern France by three quarters of a length, and is expected to improve plenty from that outing. Melbourne Cup hero Cross Counter won on Dubai World Cup night at Meydan and boasts obvious claims if seeing out the extra half mile, while similar comments apply to last year's Derby runner-up Dee Ex Bee, who has won both his starts over 2m this season. Flag Of Honour has chased home Magical on all three outings this season over 1m2f and the marked step up in distance could see him improve a fair amount, while 2017 St Leger winner Capri could bounce back to form after two average displays so far this campaign.
