Ulysses and Barney Roy are set for an intriguing rematch in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York.
The two treated racing fans to a thrilling finish in the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown last month and are among seven horses declared for the Group One race over 2000 metres on Wednedsay (Thursday (AEST).
The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Ulysses got the Eclipse verdict by a nose and has since finished second to Enable in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.
The Richard Hannon-trained Barney Roy has not raced since the Eclipse and Ulysses will not be the only old foe he will be meeting.
He will lock horns for the third time with Churchill, with the score standing at one-all.
The Aidan O’Brien-trained Churchill came out on top in the 2000 Guineas but Barney Roy got his revenge on the dual Classic winner in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.
O’Brien is also represented by Cliffs Of Moher, who was second in the Epsom Derby and did not have the best of runs when fourth in the Eclipse.
John Gosden will run Shutter Speed after taking her out of an intended engagement at Deauville at the weekend because of soft ground.
The Roger Charlton-trained Tattersalls Gold Cup winner Decorated Knight and My Dream Boat from the Clive Cox stable complete the field.
