Here’s the full list of runners and riders who will be lining up in this incredible race that has been won by such famous racehorses as Galileo and Enable to help you decide on your King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting. Who is your pick to win? The incredible filly Love (pictured), who is the Epsom and Yorkshire Oaks winner, goes head to head with Adayar, the Epsom Derby winner – it’s going to be a great showdown…

    King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes betting

    Horse: Love | Jockey: TBC | Place bet: 5/4
    Trainer: Aidan O’Brien
    Defied a 300-day layoff to make her own running and see off the strong challenge of Audarya in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot last month and is 2-2 over this distance, albeit against her own sex.

    Adayar | Jockey: William Buick | Place bet: 2/1
    Charlie Appleby
    This son of Frankel won the Epsom Derby emphatically, but he needs to prove that wasn’t a flash in the pan. He has never raced on quick ground, so he will probably want a drop of rain.

    Lone Eagle | Jockey: Frankie Dettori | Place bet: 6/1
    Martyn Meade
    Rated among one of the better three-year-old colts and Frankie Dettori keeping the ride is a statement of intent.

    Mishriff | Jockey: David Egan | Place bet:6/1
    John & Thady Gosden
    Has raced too freely on occasion before, but a stronger pace here will work in his favour. No concerns over fast ground.

    Wonderful Tonight | Jockey: Oisin Murphy | Place bet: 12/1
    David Menuisier
    Likely to need everything in her favour if she’s going to win this weekend. She acts best on softer going.

    Broome | Jockey: TBC | Place bet: 12/1
    Aidan O’Brien
    Handles all types of going and won’t mind the a bit of rain, should it materialise, but could lack the gears required late on in the race.
