This looks the right race for Yorkhill who looks more of a two-and-half-mile horse than a two miler, and David Casey, who rides him in all his work, thinks he’s got a great chance, but my feeling is that Yanworth is going to be very hard to beat.

Patrick [Mullins] would have had first choice and he’s gone for Avenir D’Une Vie, but that’s not put me off because he wouldn’t be able to do the weight on Augusta Kate.
We don’t have a lot to go on but Turcagua and Very Much So are two of Willie’s that could run well.
