TART OF FORUM
TART OF FORUM
Sir Mark Prescott, trainer of Flymetothestars and Pallasator
Flymetothestars is very ground dependent – he's run only on the all-weather. I don’t think he'll be going to York unless we get a prolonged period of soft ground. Pallasator is also an unlikely runner at this stage. He's been off colour and has missed a lot of work.

Roger Varian, trainer of Gibbs Hill and Battersea
Gibbs Hill holds an entry in the Ebor, but he also has plenty of other options so he's far from a definite runner. Battersea finished fourth in the race last year so we'll try to get him right again for it this time.

James Fanshawe, trainer of Higher Power, Star Storm, Lord George and Sam Missile
There's no real definite contender, although one might turn up on the day. Higher Power has a lot of weight, Star Storm goes to Goodwood next week, and Lord George disappointed in France last time. Sam Missile won't get in.

Jeremy Noseda, trainer of Sixties Groove
He's been entered for the Ebor and could run, but it depends on how he gets on at Goodwood next week before we firm up plans.

William Haggas, trainer of Dal Harraild, Call To Mind and Theydon Grey
We'll have to see how Dal Harraild gets on at Goodwood first. I'm not sure whether the Ebor would be the right race for Call To Mind at this stage of his career. Theydon Grey will run in the Ebor if he gets in – if he doesn’t he go for the 2m race at the meeting. He runs at Goodwood next weekend.

Jedd O’Keefe, trainer of Lord Yeats
He has a number of options over the next few weeks and the ground will be the deciding factor where he runs. I really don't know at the moment whether he'll go for the Ebor. He has options at Goodwood, Deauville, Newbury and Leopardstown as well as York.

Mick Channon, trainer of Elidor
He goes to Goodwood next week and then the Ebor. He finished third in the race three years ago and is in great form at present. He ran really well in a Group 2 in Ireland on his most recent start.

Ralph Beckett, trainer of Carntop, Lustrous Light and Magic Circle
Carntop is a possible at this stage. He looks as if he wants a step up in trip. I'd love to run Magic Circle, but he I fear he'll struggle to get in. I don't think Lustrous Light will get in either.

Charlie Fellowes, trainer of Prince Of Arran
We're definitely considering the Ebor for Prince Of Arran. If we did drop him back to 1m6f he'd need a good pace to aim at and he'd be most likely to get that in an Ebor. I think York would suit him. We'll make a plan after he runs at Goodwood next week.

Ryan Moore View on his own rides

13:55 - De Bruyne Horse

This will be the first time I have ridden him since he beat Cardsharp in the Woodcote and he acquitted himself well enough in Group 2 company before getting back to winning ways in a 7f Listed race in France last time.

Richard obviously feels first-time blinkers will sharpen him up further on his return to 6f and he looks to have a solid form chance in here, for all that he carries a 5lb penalty for that Epsom win.

14:25 - Actress

I would say that she sets the form standard going into the race, and I'd be quite keen on her chances, but she doesn't want any more rain. She wants decent ground. She is progressive, following up her Anglesey win with an excellent third against the colts in the Phoenix Stakes last time, and that form is the best on offer here as it stands.

Of course, she is up against other similarly improving fillies. Madeline looked good with a bit of ease in the ground when beating Natural at Newbury last time and, although the form hasn't really worked out, I think Happy Like A Fool bumped into a very smart filly on the day in the Queen Mary.

I have to admit I was very impressed by Threading at Goodwood. To do what she did in that ground first time up marked her out as a pretty smart prospect and, being an Exceed And Excel, you would think that she could be even better on this quicker ground. But they all have to improve to beat my filly, who is progressive in her own right.

15:00 - Ronald R

He clearly didn't run up to his best in Listed company at Newmarket last time - though that was a very good race of its type - and he is 9lb higher than when second in the Britannia previously. But he was always going to go up a fair amount for that good Ascot run, where he got going a bit too late to catch the winner after meeting slight trouble in running. This is only his seventh start, so hopefully there is more to come from him.

15:35 - Alluringly

Enable should win on all known form but it may not be as easy as the odds suggest. We saw in the King George what a good filly she is and she is the clear stand-out on that form, but I imagine Frankie could well make the running on her here - there doesn't look to be any obvious pace in the race - and she will have a target on her back if she does. And she meets two Group 1 fillies in Queen's Trust and Nezwaah.

Queen's Trust would have hated the ground at Goodwood and she earlier looked unlucky not to finish a lot closer at Ascot the time before. She may be better at 1m2f but she finished third in this race last year and this may not be the most searching of tests of stamina she will encounter at this trip.

Nezwaah is actually a similar filly to Enable solely on a line through their winning form over Rain Goddess - obviously Enable improved last time - and she is a filly who looked very good in the Pretty Polly. She could come forward again at this trip, and she and Queen's Trust could just give Enable a race, providing the ground rides okay.

Alluringly got within 2 lengths of the favourite at Chester and returned to winning form over a shorter trip at Gowran Park last time but, in truth, it is hard to see her, Abingdon or Coronet troubling the big three here. Shocks do happen, though, as we all know.

16:15 - Mori

I think Mori will take all the beating but the fact that she comes here on the back of a two-month break may be a slight concern if you are considering backing her at shortish odds. But she is clearly the form filly on her narrow second in the Ribblesdale and I think this track will suit her, too. And, hopefully, there is more to come from her after just the four starts.

16:50 - Cristal Fizz

She was two from two last year and she appears to have run respectably in the French and German Guineas this season. A mark of 99 looks fair enough on the balance of her form, and William tries her in first-time cheekpieces to eke out a bit more improvement from her, as well as stepping her back down to 7f. I haven't ridden her, so I haven't got a strong opinion, but she looks to have chances in a very open race.
