Steps has been declared for the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes. The son of Verglas has had a short break since his last run and seems in great form.

Roger said: “Steps is in great form. He has improved again this season and is capable of running very well in a race like this. Any rain would enhance his chances.”

Mushir returned to winning ways at Thirsk last time out. He returns to Listed company for the valuable City Of York Stakes over seven furlongs.

Roger added: “Mushir has training nicely since winning at Thirsk. It is a competitive race but he goes there in good form and should run a nice race.”
