Cracksman takes aim at Great Voltigeur Stakes at York

Mon 21 Aug 2017

Irish Derby runner-up Cracksman will take on seven rivals as he bids to return to winning ways in the Betway Great Voltigeur at York on Wednesday.

The John Gosden-trained son of Frankel, who also finished third in the Epsom Derby, will make his first start since his appearance at the Curragh in the mile-and-a-half Group Two.

Irish Derby winner and leading William Hill St Leger contender Capri is not among the three runners set to be saddled by trainer Aidan O'Brien.

The Ballydoyle master will rely upon Douglas Macarthur, Spanish Steps and Venice Beach as he attempts to land back-to-back victories after Idaho struck 12 months ago.

Khalidi will make his first start since joining trainer Clive Cox, while Sir Michael Stoute, who has won the race a record seven times, will be represented by Mirage Dancer.

The field is completed by the Roger Charlton-trained Atty Persse and Count Octave from the yard of Andrew Balding.
