1.5pts win RETIREMENT PLAN 11.5/1 (Betfair) Ladbrokes Mallard H'cap
1.5pts win FARQUHAR 15/1 (Betfair) Ladbrokes Mallard H'cap

Out of the Ebor runners that re-oppose here Retirement Plan is a likely candidate to come out on top. He's  very lightly raced for one of his age and this will only be his third race beyond 12 furlongs - his two best pieces of form have come in the other two - both his most recent outings. As well as being a likely Cesarewitch candidate it's worth noting that he also holds an entry in the G2 Quipco stayers event.

Peter Chapple Hyam had the runner up in the Park Hill at a big price,  and in the same ownership Farquhar catches the eye stepping up in trip which promises to bring about further improvement. The booking of a promising 5lb claimer, the first time the yard have used him, is also interesting.

Lost - 3pts
