Churchill features in classy International list
on 21 August 2017
Churchill and Barney Roy go head-to-head in a stellar list lined up to run in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York on Wednesday

Churchill will lock horns with Barney Roy for the third time in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York on Wednesday.

Aidan O'Brien's Churchill came out on top in the 2000 Guineas before following up in the Irish version, but Barney Roy got revenge on his Newmarket conqueror in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Churchill was only fourth that day and has to put that disappointing effort behind him. He has also yet to run beyond a mile.

O'Brien is also represented in the extended mile and a quarter event by Cliffs Of Moher, who was second in the Investec Derby and did not have the best of runs when fourth in the Eclipse, in which Barney Roy was pipped by Ulysses.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Ulysses got the Sandown verdict by a nose and reopposes, having finished second to Enable in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot subsequently.

John Gosden has rerouted Musidora scorer Shutter Speed to York after taking her out of an intended engagement at Deauville at the weekend because of soft ground.

Roger Charlton's Tattersalls Gold Cup winner Decorated Knight and Clive Cox's Group One victor My Dream Boat complete a stellar list.
