Leading ante-post fancy Stencive is among 22 confirmed runners for Saturday's John Smith's Cup at York.

William Haggas' ace Stencive was second behind Opinion in the Duke of Edinburgh Handicap at Royal Ascot and will run from stall 21 in the Knavesmire showpiece on Saturday.

Lining up against him in the 54th running of the 10 furlong contest are Jim Crowley's in-form Niceofyoutotellme, recent Haydock winner Star Lahib and David Barron's hat-trick seeking Clon Brulee.

Other notable runners include Ismail Mohammed's Educate, Godolphin runner Expert Fighter, and last-year's winner, the Peter Chapple-Hyam-trained King's Warrior.

Absentees from the York feature include Sir Michael Stoute's Rye House, along with Nabucco and Whispering Warrior.
