Australia Aims To Storm To International Glory On Day One Of Ebor Festival

Dual-Derby hero Australia will take on his elders for the first time on Wednesday afternoon when the Aidan O'Brien-trained superstar heads to York for what looks an enthralling renewal of the Juddmonte International Stakes at 3:40pm, which is the highlight of the opening day of the Ebor Festival.

Having stormed to glory in the Investec Derby, the Galileo colt then eased to a facile win in the Irish equivalent, but will now face some classy older rivals and Hardwicke Stakes champion Telescope will aim to shine on the Knavesmire again, whilst Coral-Eclipse winner Mukhadram is another primary contender, along with The Grey Gatsby.

Elsewhere on a cracking card, Kingston Hill will look to solidify his place at the top of the ante-post betting for the Ladbrokes St Leger at 3:05pm when he does battle in the Great Voltigeur Stakes, but Roger Varian's charge will face some stiff opposition in the shape of the progressive Mark Johnston-trained Hartnell and Gordon Stakes victor Snow Sky.

Richard Hannon's Balasteen caught the eye last time out when winning with aplomb and the exciting juvenile will be one of the primary players in the Group 3 Tattersalls Acomb Stakes at 2:30pm, but the aforementioned O'Brien will saddle Galway Festival winner Jamaica in a fascinating two-year-old event.

The action kicks off with a real punting head-scratcher and Robert Cowell's Goldream and David Barron's Robot Boy will be a brace of the 20 runners lining up in the Symphony Group Handicap at 1:55pm with a notable chance, whilst there's an equally tough betting heat at 4:20pm, as a field of 17 go to post in the Fine Equinity Handicap.

Ebor Handicap - Stayers ready to shine at York

Sir Mark Prescott's Pallasator impressed when winning at Ascot last time out and he could look for more staying glory on August 23 when he lines up for the Ebor Handicap, which is one of the betting highlights of the month as an ultra-competitive field line up for the 1m 6f contest.

Havana Cooler is another who is still on the upgrade and is a prominent figure in a wide open ante-post book, whilst the likes of Angel Gabrial and Clever Cookie are just another brace of exciting talents who could feature in this spectacle.

Ladbrokes St Leger - Final Classic is wide open

Kingston Hill was a fine second in the Derby and relishes a trip and could be a primary contender, whilst the likes of John Gosden's Romsdal and Royal Ascot winner Elite Army are another brace in the higher echelons of the ante-post betting.
