Adayar |

G1 Cazoo Derby hero Adayar (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) has joined dual French Classic winner and G1 Coral-Eclipse hero St Mark's Basilica (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) on top of the Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings. Both are now rated 127 after the Godolphin silksbearer won the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S.

Mishriff (Ire) (Make Believe {GB}), third behind St Mark's Basilica and Addeybb (Ire) (Pivotal {GB}) (121) in the Coral-Eclipse, moved up to a mark of 124 after running second to Adayar in the Goodwood feature. Palace Pier (GB) (Kingman {GB}) is in third at 125. Other horses ranked joined fourth with Mishriff are Australian sprinter Nature Strip (Aus) (Nicconi {Aus}) and GI Whitney S. hero Knicks Go (Paynter).

Four horses are a joint seventh at 122-triple Grade I winner Domestic Spending (GB) (Kingman {GB}), G1 Dubai World Cup scorer Mystic Guide (Ghostzapper), G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas and G1 St James's Palace S. victor Poetic Flare (Ire) (Dawn Approach {Ire}) and the injured Group 1-winning stayer Subjectivist (GB) (Teofilo {Ire}). Another mover in the rankings is G1 Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby hero Hurricane Lane (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), who added the G1 Grand Prix de Paris and is now up one point to 121. The well-hyped Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) entered the rankings at 120 after his 6 1/2-length win in the G3 Bonhams Thoroughbred S. Starman (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}) is equal to that Shadwell colourbearer after a victory in the G1 Darley July Cup S., and improving filly Suesa (Ire) (Night of Thunder {Ire}) is also their equal after adding a group tally in the G2 King George Qatar S.
