Latest news from all the tracks as Stradivarius bids for £1 million bonus
It has already been an Ebor festival to remember, and Stradivarius could add to the memories if he wins the Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup (2.25) on Friday and claims the inaugural Stayers' Million bonus.
And at the other end of the distance spectrum, sprinting sensation Battaash, considered by many to be the fastest horse in the world, leads the way in the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes (3.35).
Elsewhere, there are Flat meetings at Ffos Las, Newmarket, Goodwood, Salisbury and Chelmsford, as well as a mixed card at Killarney and jumps action from Kilbeggan.
