Ghaiyyath | George Selwyn

Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), who won his second consecutive Group 1 on Sunday when turning back Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) in the G1 Coral-Eclipse, leads the latest edition of the Longines World's Best Racehorse Rankings for 2020 with a mark of 127 for that latest effort.

Stradivarius (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) finished 2019 as the world's highest-rated stayer, and he maintains that position after earning a rating of 125 for his third victory in the G1 Gold Cup at Royal Ascot.

Japan's Almond Eye (Jpn) (Lord Kanaloa {Jpn}) and Australia's Nature Strip (Aus) (Nicconi {Aus}) share third at 124 for their victories, respectively, in the G1 Victoria Mile and G1 TJ Smith S. Joint fifth at a mark of 123 are Britain's Lord North (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), upset winner of the G1 Prince of Wales's S. at Royal Ascot, and America's Tom's D'Etat (Smart Strike), a Grade I winner last year who has won four straight including the June 27 GII Stephen Foster S.
