The 2020 Sky Bet York Stakes takes place at York Racecourse on Saturday 24 July. This Group 2 race takes place over 1 mile 2 furlongs and 56 yards and an interesting field of seven runners are set to go to post.
Fox Chairman looked likely to go onto better things this year but he’s disappointed over a mile and 10-furlongs in his two runs. He could yet take higher order but he’s hard to back with any conviction. Aspetar finished one place in front of him at Sandown last time but his best form is over 12-furlongs, a distance at which he won a Group 1 in Germany in September.
It’s also impossible to dismiss another Group 1 winner dropping in class but Lord Glitters has proven best at a mile on a straight course. Connections did try him in the Juddmonte International over course and distance last year, but he finished behind three re-opposing rivals that day.
Regal Reality finished one-place in front of Lord Glitters that day, but he’s not placed in either run over course and distance. Connections will be hoping the ground stays good-to-firm, but rain is forecast. King Of Comedy finished just in front of Regal Reality in a Group 1 last year over course and distance without looking a thorough stayer at the trip. Connections dropped him back to a mile after that and he’s not looked 100% genuine.
Telecaster is an interesting runner and he’s the second favourite with most bookmakers after winning a weak Group race in France last time. But the form book shows he also beat the multiple Group 1 winner Too Darn Hot over the course and distance at York as a 3-year-old, be it the runner-up wasn’t quite at his best that day. However, Telecaster did finish over a length behind Elarqam when the pair were second and third behind Lord North earlier in the season.
That means Elarqam has to be the tip for the Sky Bet York Stakes. He’s not only beaten Telecaster, but he also finished in front of King Of Comedy, Regal Reality, and Lord Glitters over course and distance last season, and then he followed up by winning last year’s edition of this race. He didn’t stay 12-furlongs last time but is taken to confirm the form dropped back to his optimum trip.
