Lonsdale Cup Guide

1. Stradivarius

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - Frankie Dettori

Everyone at York on day three of the Ebor meeting has come to witness history with Stradivarius just one more win away from landing the Weatherbys Hamilton £1 million bonus.

This five year old is the dominant stayer in the division with no one in the last two seasons coming close to him and having already beaten most of this field all season it looks another routine day at the office for him.

He has now won his last eight races in a row ranging between Group One and Two races and he has perfect conditions today to go and show his star quality.

Should not be beat.

2. Dee Ex Bee

Trainer - Mark Johnston

Jockey - Silvestre De Sousa

Dee Ex Bee looks to be the favourites strongest rival in this one having now ran behind him in defeat twice this season but putting in some good performances.

Since he has been stepped up in trip this season he has turned into a new horse, winning his first two starts over two miles at Ascot and Sandown.

He was a valiant runner up in the Ascot Gold Cup and latest in the Goodwood Cup but it looks that if Stradivarius is still in the stayers division there will be no other winner.

3. Falcon Eight

Trainer - Dermot Weld

Jockey - Oisin Murphy

An unfamiliar face in the field is Falcon Eight for trainer Dermot Weld and this Irish raider looks a very progress stayer but still not to the level as some of the other runners in the field.

This season the four year old has been lightly raced placing on his debut at Leopardstown in a Listed event and then got off the mark nicely at Sandown last time out in another Listed race.

This is far more tougher today but will be eying up that second spot if being able to keep up with the pack.

4. II Paradiso

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Wayne Lordan

Aidan O'Brien's only runner in the race and he looks to just be making the numbers up in this one, running three times this season to a good standard but needs a miracle to go well here.

He has won two of his three contests this season and when stepped up to two miles last time out he looked a natural at the trip but that was in a handicap and this race is far more difficult.

Ryan Moore does not ride the three year old aswell which is very strange with just one Ballydoyle runner in the race.

5. Magic Circle

Trainer - Ian Williams

Jockey - Jim Crowley

The final runner of the Group Two is Ian Williams' Magic Circle who has not looked the same horse this season now being seven years of age and is easily opposable.

The gelding has ran twice, finishing third on his seasonal debut at Chester and then last time out he was well held in behind Stradivarius and Dee Ex Bee in the Ascot Gold Cup and you can't see that changing in this one.
