Irish master trainer, Willie Mullins, has confirmed Stratum is on track to try and win him a second Sky Bet Ebor at York a week on Saturday- if his charge gets into the £500,000 race.
Stratum is currently number 29 in the entries for Europe's richest flat handicap, with only the top 20 able to take part.
Mullins saddled the 25 to 1 shot Sesanta to win the big race in 2009 and he has been outlining his plans for this year’s race, alongside his other Knavesmire hopes
Trainer Karl Burke's confirmed he's out to keep one of the big prizes at the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival in the county later this month, 'no matter who turns up to take her on'.
Burke will saddle the French Oaks heroine Laurens in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks on the second day of the big meeting, a race thats earmarked for a possible return to action for last years winner Enable, who has not been seen on track since winning the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe last October.
Burke's been speaking with Mike Vince and has issued an upbeat bulletin on his stable star.
Victory in the Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup at York next month is all that stands between star stayer Stradivarius and a million pound bonus after he landed the Qatar Goodwood Cup this afternoon.
John Gosden's stayer followed up his early season and Gold Cup victory at Ascot to claim the third leg of the four race challenge.
All roads now lead to York, and a possible rematch with Torcedor who went down by half a length on the Sussex Downs.
Charles Hamilton, whose firm sponsor the York race, was watching at Goodwood and is delighted the bonus will now be decided on the Knavesmire.
20-1 shot Euchan Glen has made every yard of the running to land the John Smiths Cup at York.
The Scottish trained outsider dictated the pace throughout the mile and a quarter contest and beat his rivals by 2 and a quarter lengths. Thundering Blue was second and Kynren third.
Euchan Glen's trained by Jim Goldie and provided apprentice jockey Ali Rawlinson with the biggest win of his career.
Rawlinson spoke with Mike Vince afterwards.
