Stradivarius can outclass his rivals and make a winning reappearance in the MansionBet Yorkshire Cup. John Gosden enjoyed a day to remember at York on Thursday and will have high hopes the four-year-old can emerge as a leading force in the staying division this term. He looks a good bet to win this.

Richard Fahey is another handler who is having a good week and Nicki's Angel looks the answer to the opener. She won well on debut at Musselburgh, the form of which is working out well, and is a filly to follow.

Ryan Moore is a positive booking for Capton who reappears in the 4.05. He was disqualified on his final start last term, denying him a hat-trick, but is an improver and capable of running well from a mark of 93.

Dark Rose Angel disappointed on her reappearance at Longchamp but will strip fitter for that outing. Connections reach for the cheekpieces and Frankie Dettori in the 2.55 and she looks ready to return to form.
