The feature race on day one of the Ebor meeting is the Group One Juddmonte International and we are siding with the John Gosden trained Lord North.
One of the most progressive horses on the the flat this term has been the John Gosden trained runner who last season was running in Handicaps and this year has stepped up to land fiercely contested Group Ones.
Consistency is something that this horse is known for, not finishing outside the top two in his last six events and recently showing his class in better races.
This term Lord North is unbeaten, landing the Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Haydock and off the back of that taking the Group One Prince Of Wales's Stakes at the royal meeting.
Although this will be his toughest assignment to date he warrants respect from the field and could just be the value angle.
