Acqume will be heading to York (Simon Cooper/PA)Australian sprinter Acqume is set to run at Yorkon Saturday.

In Britain to help prepare her Toby Edmonds-trained stablemate Houtzen for Royal Ascot, she has been stabled in Newmarket for the past two months.

Acqume also holds an entry at Goodwood over six furlongs on Friday, but a trip to the Knavesmire for the William Hill Leading On Course Bookmaker Sprint is favoured.

“We want to run her this week and we’ll have a look at both races, but I think the five-furlong option would be more up her alley first up and we’ll probably kick her off over that trip,”  said Trent Edmonds, assistant to his father.

“She took a little while to settle in and she had a few little niggles, but she seems to be through all of that now.

“The last four or five weeks have been super – she’s thriving.”

“Whatever she does in her first run she’ll improve on, but it’s also a matter of us getting a grasp on the form.

“I think she’s probably been rated a touch high, but we’ll see where she fits in.

“She didn’t get beaten very far at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day and she handled that well. She’s a big, heavy mare and I don’t think she’s necessarily a firm, firm track horse so the ground in Britain should suit her.”
