1.5pts win JET AWAY 7/1 (Betfair) Sky Bet York Stakes
1.5pts win SIDE GLANCE 8/1 (Betfair) Sky Bet York Stakes

This is all about Planteur as a repeat of some of his best form, such as his run when third to Golden Lilac in the Prix De Isphahan two months ago, would be clearly good enough for him to win this. The problem is that he hasen't got his head infront for over a year now, disappointed at Ascot last time, and for all his ability is becoming an underachiever.

Jet Away and Side Glance look attractive alternatives. The former was bogged down in the ground at Pontefract last time but has previously looked an animal about to rise up through the ranks when beating Fiorente at Goodwood. Side Glance may have been flattered to get so close to Excelebration in the Queen Anne but it was still a good performance . He is not afraid of getting his head infront and is an interesting proposition trying this trip for the first time.

Lost - 3pts
