2022 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Runners

A small but select field will go to post for the race in 2022, with just six runners declared at the five day stage.

Westover leads the way for Ralph Beckett, third in the English Derby and winner of the Irish Derby, he continues to move forward well. Emily Upjohn will represent John Gosden, the filly was excellent at York in her Oaks trial, but beaten by a head in the Epsom classic.

Mishriff leads the older challengers, and looked as good as ever when finding trouble in running and being beaten a neck by Vadeni in the Eclipse at Sandown.

Torquator Tasso, Broom and Pyledriver round off the field, all high class in their own right, but considered outsiders here, given the strength of the three year olds and Mishriff at the top of the market.
