Johnjo O’Neill’s six-year-old won the race two years ago and vies for favouritism with Ed Dunlop-trained Mubaraza, fourth in the Ascot Stakes last time out. Tominator has had one run this season, when third in the Chester Cup, and could face his Roodee conqueror Address Unknown which is also among the overnight declarations for the two-mile contest.
David Simcock’s York winner Montaser carries a 5lb penalty for his come-back victory and is another figuring prominently in the Northumberland Plate betting.
Last year’s winner Ile De Re, trained by Donald McCain, will find the ground a lot faster than the testing conditions 12 months ago despite the recent rain in the North East of England. Alan King’s Ardlui, the William Haggas-trained Sun Central and Godolphin’s Handsome Man are all preferred in the betting and head into the race in good form with recent placed runs.
John Quinn’s Moidore has a good draw in stall ten and his run behind Well Sharp last time out looked better when the winner went on to victory at Royal Ascot.
