Brilliant Battaash races for back-to-back wins in the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes, the highlight on day three of York’s Ebor meeting.
The top sprinter broke the track record in last year’s contest over the minimum distance and is a short price with the bookmakers to remain unbeaten this season.
Jim Crowley’s mount bids to follow favourites Ghaiyyath and Love into the winners’ enclosure at 3.15pm, after they shined in the big races on the first two days of the fixture.
Friday’s card has seven races, including several at Group Two level.
They are the Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup Stakes (2.15pm, 2m) and the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Gimcrack Stakes (2.45pm, 6f).
