UAE PRINCE found Listed company beyond him last time out but he can make a fruitful return to handicap level in the 58th John Smith's Cup at York.

Roger Varian's charge boasts a big home reputation but could not muster much of a run at Ascot, although the fact he was the worst off at the weights should be kept in mind.

He is possibly much better judged on his handy Ripon win back in April and his mark of 97 may yet prove to have underestimated him. Andrea Atzeni has today's ride.

Nap selection LIMATO can secure his place in the record books by becoming only the third horse since the war to win successive renewals of the Darley July Cup at Newmarket.

Only Abernant (1949 and 1950) and Right Boy (1958 and 1959) have succeeded in defending their crown and if Limato is to join those two legends of the turf, he will have to conquer nine rivals – including hot favourite Caravaggio.

Indeed, on the official figures Limato has 2lb to find on Aidan O'Brien's would-be superstar, but he can likely be judged a shade better than his recent Royal Ascot run.

Limato finished third in the Diamond Jubilee last month, with just inches separating him from reopposing The Tin Man and Tasleet.

Yet Limato was the main victim as it all got a bit tight in the finish and while he still would not have won, on what was his first start since March, it was an encouraging run.

Trainer Henry Candy believes he has progressed since that performance and if there are any chinks in the armour of Caravaggio, Limato and jockey Harry Bentley can be relied upon to expose them.

Caravaggio's stablemate GUSTAV KLIMT lines up under Ryan Moore in the bet365 Superlative Stakes and he can take home the Group Two prize.

The Galileo colt was a bit disappointing when only fifth on his racecourse bow at the Curragh in May but the experience was clearly not lost on him as he returned to win a maiden back at that track at the start of this month.

He won over seven furlongs that day, so the trip holds no fears for him and he can take another step up the ladder.

ABOVE THE REST has run some fine races in defeat so far this term and can enjoy his moment in the sun in the bet365 Bunbury Cup Handicap.

Jockey Clifford Lee takes off a valuable 5lb and can make good use in this ultra-competitive cavalry charge.

It will be something of a surprise if MUTAKAYYEF cannot secure back-to-back victories in the Fred Cowley MBE Memorial Summer Mile Stakes at Ascot.

William Haggas' charge was a clear-cut winner of the Group Two last year and he has actually improved another 8lb in the last 12 months on the ratings.

His subsequent third in the Juddmonte International last summer showed he is capable of mixing it at the top level, while he also ran well in Canada in the autumn and in Dubai on his reappearance in March.

Mutakayyef pushed Ribchester close at Ascot, without ever really looking like getting his head in front, but a repeat of that performance would be more than good enough. Dane O'Neill takes the reins.

On what is a relentless afternoon in Britain, Chester also stage a classy card and JALLOTA is the pick in the Sportingbet City Plate Stakes.

He found the Queen Anne far too hot at the Royal meeting but had previously shown up well in a couple of Group-race outings and should be well at home in this Listed heat.
