Custom Cut is to bid for his third Group Two suc-
cess when he lines up in the £100,000 Sky Bet
York Stakes on Saturday.
The extended 10-furlong Group Two contest
has been won by some top class performers in re-
cent years, with Sheikhzayedroad (2014),
Mukhadram (2013) and Twice Over (2011) all
going on to score in Group One company.
This year's renewal has attracted 13 entries. Cus-
tom Cut was a revelation last season, winning five
Listed and Group races in a row, and returned this
season with victory in the Group Two bet365 Mile
at Sandown Park in April.
He proved slightly disappointing in the Group
One Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes, also over a mile,
at Newbury in May, finishing ninth, but returned to
form when second to Arod under a 5lb penalty in
the Group Three Diomed Stakes at Epsom over an
extended mile on June 5.
Custom Cut is the 100/30 favourite with the
sponsors, who have opened betting on the race.
Saturday's Sky Bet Dash is an option for the pro-
gressive Bushcraft, but trainer Ed Walker is prefer-
ring Ascot at this stage.
The four-year-old tops the 33 entries for the
£50,000 Sky Bet Dash over six furlongs, for which
he is the 8/1 favourite with Sky Bet. The four-year-
old has been successful on all three of his starts in
2015 over six furlongs, at Windsor (twice) and
Newcastle, rising a stone in the ratings as a result.
Walker is currently mulling his options for the
weekend however, as Bushcraft is also entered in
the seven-furlong International Handicap at Ascot
on Saturday, for which he is the 10/1 joint-favourite
with Sky Bet.
The trainer said yesterday: "The Sky Bet Dash
York on Saturday is plan B at the moment for
Bushcraft. It is a back-up race for him if the ground
goes too quick at Ascot.
A total of 48 horses stood their ground at the
confirmation stage for the Ascot race.

Tom Messenger has had a ten-day ban imposed

Messenger was penalised for his ride on the
Chris Bealby-trained Crosslanes, who finished
eighth of 13 runners and was beaten 36 lengths in
a two-mile maiden hurdle on July 6.
The Worcester stewards deemed him guilty of
failing to take all reasonable and permissible meas-
ures to obtain the best possible placing.
However, the panel accepted and understood, in
part, Messenger's explanation for his actions.
The jockey's suspension was cut by two days
and will now run from July 23 to July 31. His de-
posit was returned.
In another hearing, Kieren Fox was hit with a 23-
day suspension, seven of which were deferred for
six weeks until September 23, following his latest

selburgh runs in tandem; later evening

Plenty of variety and two-year-old races,
my speciality which, during the next
three months, will be the focus of our
Daily Earner operation.
It s Time to closely monitor the yard
of Sir Mark Prescott!
In the first three months of every season
Prescott waits, watches and plots; he found
an ideal opportunity for Time Warp over
six furlongs at Lingfield earlier this month
but the widest draw and hesitation by
jockey Luke Morris in the early stages
At a time when Morris should have been
positive he looked across to see what others
were doing, consequently Time Warp ran
wide into the final turn and despite a late
flourish was beaten a neck, half length.
It s necessary for jockeys to get an early
pozzy and that wasn t the case.
This extra distance should be ideal and
unless there s a fly among one of four
newcomers Time Warp should make it
fourth time lucky and land my nap.
Rasheeq is one of nine declared for the
Maiden Stakes over six furlongs, what
beats this once-raced colt win and I ll bet
he goes one better under Martin Harley
whose expertise is really showing through
this season; much sought after.
Later this week Golden Horn will put
his unbeaten record on the line in the King
George at Ascot; it s getting very firm at
the Berkshire course and that might be a
concern; at this stage Telescope, each-
way, is our preference.

described as good to firm and with little
rain forecast, a fast surface is set to prevail
in Berkshire this weekend.
Clerk of the course Chris Stickels is
planning to water the track to ensure it
is in peak condition for Saturday.
He said yesterday: "We had a bit of
drizzle this morning, amounting to around
one millimetre, and the going is a mixture
of good and good to firm.
"We re forecast a drying day tomorrow
and as things stand, the plan is to water
the round course tonight and the straight

is predominantly dry, with the possibility
of showers on Wednesday and Friday."
Stickels is relishing the prospect of see-
ing the Derby winner bid for King George
The last horse to complete the double
was Galileo in 2001.
"We re delighted with the entries, it
looks a great race," said Stickels.
"It s great Snow Sky has been supple-
mented and we re thrilled it looks like
Golden Horn is likely to turn up.
"It s always great to see the Derby win-
ner come here for the King George and
with no significant rain likely at this point,
it looks like the conditions will suit him."
Sir Michael Stoute has won the King
George a joint-record five times and has
strengthened his hand for this year s
renewal by supplementing Snow Sky, who
was an all-the-way scorer in the Hard-
wicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.
