The first selection of the Dante meeting comes in the Jorvik Handicap over 1m4f and La Yakel for trainer William Haggas should not be far away with the trainer winning the last two renewals for the same owner.
La Yakel has been seen five times during his career getting better the further he has gone and since being sent into handicaps.
Third to Secret State on debut at Nottingham back in May 2022, he then went to Windsor and again finished third in a Novice Stakes over a mile.
Getting off the mark for his career at Southwell in his final start in a Novice Stakes over 1m3f, he went on to bolt up revelling in the extra trip.
Since then he has been seen twice more in handicap company, winning on handicap debut off a mark of 87 at Ascot when taking the 1m4f Lavazza Stakes and then last time out over the same trip at Newmarket in the Old Rowley Cup when fourth behind Al Nafir.
That run came off 5lb higher and running off the same mark for this event makes him dangerous, especially with Haggas' record in the race.
