Fujaira Prince heads the Ebor Handicap entries at York

A competitive field will line up for the Ebor Handicap on Saturday

Royal Ascot winner Fujaira Prince is among the stellar list of 43 entries received for Saturday's Ebor Handicap, which is a hugely competitive-looking renewal of the staying showpiece on the final day of the Ebor Festival at York racecourse.

A facile three and three quarter length winner of the Copper Horse Handicap at Royal Ascot in June, the Roger Varian-trained raider will look to continue on an upward curve by claiming victory in the weekend marathon contest, but the six-year-old will face a plethora of contenders in a mouth-watering race.

Alan King's Trueshan was a listed winner at York last month, and the Barbury Castle in-mate will look to make it two wins on the bounce, while the Peter Chapple-Hyam-trained Deja was another seen claiming victory on their last outing at Haydock in July, and the impressive Old Newton Cup hero will be bidding for a second notable staying handicap success in two months.

Hugo Palmer's Caravan Of Hope is another with a big handicap win on his CV this season as he was a fine winner of the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle, and the four-year-old will take his chance and is a prominent figure in the latest betting, while Nicky Henderson's dual-purpose starlet Verdana Blue was last seen finishing second in the Ascot Stakes, and will aim to go one better on another outing on the level for the Seven Barrows handler.

In total, 43 horses have been entered for the valuable handicap contest and others that catch the eye in the entry list include Pablo Escobarr, who will look to build on a taking win in the Group 3 Glorious Stakes at Goodwood last month, while Ed Dunlop's Red Verdon, who is bidding for a third win on the bounce, is another of note for an enthralling renewal.

Elsewhere on Saturday's card, the Group 2 Sky Bet York Stakes has attracted 14 entries, with the likes of impressive Group 3 Oak Tree Stakes winner One Master, Criterion Stakes winner Limato and Summer Mile runner-up San Donato just three of the stand out contenders potentially bidding for success. 

In a race awash with proven Group performers, Safe Voyage will attempt to recapture the form that saw him claim victory in the Surrey Stakes at Epsom two starts ago, while the Richard Hannon-trained three-year-old Threat will step back up in trip having failed to land a blow over six furlongs in the Group 1 July Cup last time out.

An action-packed Saturday will serve up some superb equine action, but there's top quality racing also taking place on Friday, with the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes taking centre stage. The news that the Wesley Ward-trained Golden Pal will not be taking his chance in the line up saw the Charles Hills-trained Battaash cut even further in the betting for the York sprint showpiece. The multiple Group 1-winning speedball is a commanding favourite to retain the Group 1 crown he won in fine fashion 12 months ago, but in Art Power and A'Ali he will face two notable rivals.

Richmond Stakes winner Supremacy will tackle Windsor Castle and July Stakes champion Tactical in a fascinating renewal of the Gimcrack Stakes on Friday, while John Gosden's Enbihaar heads the betting for the Lonsdale Cup, where he could clash with the classy triumvirate of Nayef Road, Dashing Willoughby and Eagles By Day.
