1.55 York, Friday, August 25

In the opening Sky Bet First Race Special Handicap (1.55) at York on Friday, Mukhayyam failed in his hat-trick bid when only fifth of 10, beaten 1¾ lengths, in the Shergar Cup Challenge at Ascot two weeks ago but, faced with a less rigorous test of stamina, may be able to resume winning ways. A course and distance winner in May, the Dark Angel gelding followed up in good style at Ripon eight days later and, although 6lb higher in the weights here, his Ascot run suggested that he remains feasibly weighted. Reunited with winning jockey David Allan, it would be no surprise to see him lead this field a merry dance and, at 16/1 with Ladbrokes, his price is just too generous to resist.

Selection: Mukhayyam to win
