Form & Verdict

Long-time star stayer whose excellent CV includes a record of 5-5 at York, namely wins in this race twice (2018/2019) and the Lonsdale Cup three times; trophy cabinet also includes two Doncaster Cups, three Ascot Gold Cups and four Goodwood Cups; the one to beat, provided he still retains plenty of ability now aged eight.

Effervescent and seemingly ever-present at or near the top of the staying division; that includes wins in this race in 2018, 2019 and 2021 and he's also won three Yorkshire Cups, which makes him unbeaten in his six races at York; while not quite the force of old these days, he still gave Gold Cup winner Kyprios a big fright in the Goodwood Cup last month, just ahead of Trueshan, and looks set to throw down another powerful late challenge.

J: Ben Robinson

T: Brian Ellison

Kept mostly to Listed/Group races for two years but he broke his long losing run in handicap at Chester (2m2f, soft) two weeks ago, wearing down Emiyn; 4lb penalty in this much more competitive race demands another step back up the ladder but the return to winning way still rates a positive, especially as it showed he can still grind out a good performance in the mud.

No win since July 2021; while still a smart stayer, as shown by his front-running third in C&D Group 3 (good to soft) two starts back, the combination of firmer ground and trip this short make this look a tough task.
