Limato: Dropping back to the minimum trip at York

Connections of the Henry Candy-trained runner have stumped the #30,000 fee to add their runner to the five-furlong Group One following his impressive Newmarket success.

Charlie Hills' in-form, and in-foal, filly Silver Rainbow is another addition to the field along with Mark Johnston's juvenile Yalta, who landed the Molecomb at Goodwood last time.

Johnston has another two-year-old contender and Goodwood second The Last Lion still in the mix, with the pair getting a huge weight advantage over their older rivals.

Twenty-two horses are still in the mix, headed by last year's winner Mecca's Angel, who is one of two possibles for Michael Dods along with Easton Angel.

King's Stand winner Profitable is a leading challenge for Clive Cox with Robert Cowell having the pick of four in Goldream, Spirit Quartz, Iffranesia and two-year-old Prince Of Lir.

Irish contenders are limited to just Aidan O'Brien's Washington DC and the Edward Lynam-trained Sole Power, who is a previous Nunthorpe winner.

Goken, Brando, Cotai Glory, Danzeno, Muthmir, Out Do, Pearl Secret, Take Cover and Thesme complete the possibles.
