Verdict

Les Troyens caught the eye at Haydock and one couldn't rule him out off a 1lb lower mark but we will side with SHAMDARLEY. Marco Botti's five-year-old was a ready winner on the Polytrack at Kempton at the beginning of the month, and the form was given a boost when the second scored in a valuable handicap at Ripon. Smarty Socks is a standing dish at York and while sure to run his race, his consistency has seen him creep back up the weights. Nameitwhatyoulike will enjoy a substantial pull at the weights with David O'Meara's star on their last race over this distance and he could reverse the form. Dark Castle takes a step up in grade while Sirius Prospect has his first run in handicaps for some time after finishing unplaced in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot. Navajo Chief drops in trip having won the Hambleton Stakes at the May meeting here.
