Distant Memories, Kings Gambit and Prince Of Johanne could all represent Tom Tate in Saturday's John Smith's Cup at York.

Distant Memories won in Listed company at Pontefract on his latest start and has been allotted top-weight for this weekend's contest.

Kings Gambit is next in the weights having won a Sandown Group Three earlier in the season, while Prince Of Johanne has won two of his three starts this season.

"I've left them all in. There's Distant Memories, Kings Gambit and Prince Of Johanne," said the Tadcaster handler.

"They would all be likely runners at this stage, but we will make our mind up for definite on Thursday morning.

"It is a possibility (we'll use a claimer on Distant Memories), but at this stage everything is a possibility as the weather is forecast to change."
