Trainer Aidan O'Brien claims Magical is in fine condition as she prepares to run in Saturday's Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot.
The five-year-old won the race 12 months ago and has since enjoyed another stellar campaign for connections.
Magical now has seven Group One triumphs to her name, and she has won at the Curragh twice this season, while also winning the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown last time out.
O'Brien's charge will now try to join the likes of Brigadier Gerard, Triptych and Cracksman as a dual Champion Stakes winner.
Magical lines up against Mishriff, Lord North, Addeybb, Skalleti, Pyledriver, Serpentine, Japan, Extra Elusive, Desert Encounter and San Donato and O'Brien fancies her chances.
He told reporters: "She's an amazing filly really - we've seen how consistent she has been. She has run in all the top Group Ones since she was a two-year-old, which is unusual.
"There doesn't seem to be any ceiling to her yet. We were delighted with her in Leopardstown, and we couldn't have been happier with every run she's had this year really.
"She doesn't need anybody else to help her - she's very happy to plough a lone furrow.
"The Champion Stakes is a very prestigious race, and it would be unbelievable for her to win it again."
