It will take a good one to beat Tac De Boistron in the Sky Bet Yorkshire Cup on Friday. Marco Botti's grey appears to be the emerging force in the staying division and can carry on the good work on the Knavesmire. The seven-year-old son of Take Risks has thrived since his arrival in England from Australia last summer, and now looks a genuine Ascot Gold Cup contender. This is hardly an outrageous claim given he is already a Group One winner over two miles after having pocketed the Prix Royal-Oak in France last autumn. But it was arguably the impact he made on his seasonal bow at Ascot which convinced the naysayers he could be the real deal. Tac De Boistron really could not have won the the Group Three Sagaro Stakes with any more authority as he laughed at runner-up Earth Amber by five lengths. This is tougher, of course, but many of his rivals at York have tried and failed at this level. Conditions should also be ideal for Botti's inmate, who is at his best when there is some cut in the ground, as illustrated in the Sagaro and the Royal-Oak. Even in spite of having to concede weight all round, another big run looks virtually assured. Lady Lara has a good chance in the Irish Champions Weekend Fillies' Stakes. Alan Jarvis' filly endured a rough passage to the line in the 1000 Guineas, in which she beat just four horses home, but her form as a juvenile, during which time she also won on soft ground, was very good. Lady Lara's two-length second behind J Wonder on her return in the Fred Darling in April is also a firm indication she will easily be up to Listed class. North Yorkshire trainer David Barron is a big fan of Sarista, who could go well in the Langleys Solicitors LLP EBF Stallions Marygate Stakes. The diminutive daughter of Kodiac showed no shortage of fight to defeat a good horse from Richard Fahey's yard in a five-furlong maiden at Redcar. With the third horse home some seven lengths arrears, it is quite reasonable to expect the protagonists that day to take relatively high rank. Sarista has bags of speed to go with her fortitude and should have conditions made to measure in the Listed assignment. Inchila is taken to play a leading role in the Swettenham Stud Fillies' Trial Stakes at Newbury. Peter Chapple-Hyam's daughter of Dylan Thomas was a pleasing winner over course and distance at Newbury last month and is well deserving of a shot at this level. The form from that Newbury race also looks watertight as Criteria, who finished third, subsequently claimed second spot in the Oaks Trial at Lingfield and is now bound for Royal Ascot. Mushir must be recognised as a major player in the Bathwick Tyres Carnarvon Stakes. Roger Varian's colt was beaten a head by Shifting Power, who then finished fourth in the Guineas, in a valuable race at Newmarket on his return to the fray and will be unfazed by the return to six furlongs. Velox looked fairly sharp in decent company last summer and can overcome a lengthy break in the Edmondson Hall Solicitors & Sports Lawyers Handicap at Newmarket. Bolingbroke is respected on his British bow in the Ginger Grouse Braveheart Stakes at Hamilton, while Refer warrants an interest in the Connolly's Red Mills Handicap Hurdle at Aintree.
