Jockey Ryan Moore is looking for his fourth Betway Yorkshire Cup win when he rides The Queen’s Dartmouth at York on Friday.

Dartmouth is currently the favourite and will be ridden by three-time Yorkshire Cup winner Ryan Moore, who’s looking for his third win in four years in this event.

The five-year-old has won seven of his 15 races and impressed last year when he rattled off a hat-trick with pattern victories at Chelmsford, Chester and Ascot.

The latter was an impressive victory in the Hardwicke Stakes where he beat Highland Reel by a nose. Dartmouth broke from the centre heading into the final straight and went neck-and-neck with Highland Reel all the way to the finish.

However, Aidan O’Brien’s bay got revenge a month later when he beat Dartmouth and Wings of Desire in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot. Following that third-place finish Sir Michael Stoute’s charge has managed two runner-up efforts, most recently at Woodbine in Canada.

Ryan Moore has an impressive 80% strike-rate when riding the horse (4-5) and the booking suggests another big run is expected.

Last year’s winner Clever Cookie will be making his seasonal reappearance after over 250 days without a run out. The nine-year-old hasn’t managed a victory since last year’s Yorkshire Cup victory, finishing seventh at Doncaster and Ascot and only managing fifth at this course in August.

However, those runs were all longer than the 14 furlongs the gelding is set to run on Friday and could surprise a few with a second consecutive Yorkshire Cup.

Hughie Morrison has started the season in great form with ten wins from 70 runs and runs Marmelo, already a Group Three winner in France this season, should run well. After that win, Morrison said: “He's a big heavy horse who didn't run at two and was hard to train last year.

"He's been running in France because he qualifies for the Premiums and also for the softer ground, so it was nice to see him handle good ground.”

Crimean Tatar has to challenge a step up in trip for Hugo Palmer, coming off the back of a loss to Muntahaa at Newbury in April and will renew the rivalry in this one.

The 2015 St Leger winner Simple Verse is coming from a third place finish at Ascot on the same day as the Queen Elizebeth II stakes. Ralph Beckett’s horse joins Endless Time as the second of two mares in field.

High Jinx, a classy stayer at his best but off the track for 747 days, completes the list on his debut for Tim Easterby.
