The Ebor meeting at York racecourse is one of the highlights of the flat season with superb Grade One races across the meeting and it topped off with one of the most expensive handicaps in the sport.
This year we have a very shrewd ante-post angle for the contest and at 12/1 at this current moment it looks like huge value if he is to be entered into the contest.
The Gary Moore trained Goshen has had a very successful season over hurdles racing four times and on his first three contests winning by a combined 68 lengths.
His final start would have topped off the year for the trainer with Goshen just one hurdle away from taking the JCB Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival but unfortunately unseating his rider when 10 lengths clear of the field at the last.
However, after his highly successful campaign on the flat Moore suggested that he would bring his stable star back to where he started on the flat having just a minor rating of 88 that can be exploited.
We believe that this is where the value lies at 12/1 for this horse who certainly stays the two miles and has an engine over this distance like nothing we have ever seen before in a horse.
He has won on pretty much any ground conditions and with such a low mark and so much talent, if going for the race he is the one to beat.
