|Poet's Word to win Best Bet||7/4|
Juddmonte International Stakes Odds
Victory in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot was followed up by a fine win in the King George at Ascot, so Poet's Word will has the strongest form in the Juddmonte International Stakes, and he is entitled to be the 7/4 favourite with William Hill Bookmakers, and is the one to beat.
He will make his first trip to York, and will need to show he can perform at his best on the Knavesmire, but Stoute's charge will have to give significant weight away to some younger rivals, who should add significant depth to a fascinating showpiece event on Wednesday afternoon.
Roaring Lion blossomed at York earlier on in the season when winning the Dante Stakes, but he could only finish third in the Derby at Epsom, however, bagged victory in the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park, and is 11/4 to land this prize with Ladbrokes.
While he is a class act, he is still yet to show the sort of form Poet's Word has shown, and the older contender can prevail, and Poet's Word is more likely to get more trouble from Saxon Warrior, who was just touched off by Roaring Lion last time out, but the 5/1 shot with William Hill makes much more attractive value, and Aidan O'Brien knows what it takes to win this race having saddled four winners in the last ten years.
St James's Palace Stakes winner Without Parole failed to show his best when way down the field in the Sussex Stakes, so the 12/1 shot with BetVictor will need to recapture his old form, but may struggle to land a blow now taking on a whole host of quality rivals on Wednesday afternoon.

A class act at Meydan, Benbatl failed to land a blow in Group 1 company in the Queen Anne Stakes, but the Godolphin raider will look to flourish here, and is 12/1 with BetVictor, while Latrobe and Thunder Snow (both 16/1) add significant strength in depth to the field.
However, Poet's Word has the premier form heading into the race, and he can duly continue his dominance in top-class company, and he can cruise to victory and land this prestigious prize for favourite backers and the 7/4 with William Hill has to be snaffled up.
