Shea set for Nunthorpe bid
Shea Shea and Sole Power head a field of 20 going to post for Friday's Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes at York.
Mike de Kock's Shea Shea has been one of the favourites for the five-furlong contest since betting opened having just been touched off in the King's Stand at Ascot and he will aim to give South Africa's champion trainer his first Group One in Britain.
Eddie Lynam's Sole Power beat Shea Shea at Ascot and will take him on again along with his smart stable mate, Slade Power. Johnny Murtagh maintains his successful partnership with Sole Power while Wayne Lordan rides his companion.
Bryan Smart's Moviesta will aim to keep the prize in Yorkshire and he would be a popular winner with Harry Redknapp among his band of owners.
The last "home" winner was Borderlescott who claimed the prize twice for Robin Bastiman and despite his advancing years, he will be back again having run respectably in the Great St Wilfrid last weekend.
Ladies Are Forever, who was supplemented, is another who would be a well-received victor for owner Reg Bond while Kevin Ryan saddles both Tiddliwinks and York Glory.
Tickled Pink, the three-year-old Rosdhu Queen, Swiss Spirit and Kingsgate Choice are also in the mix.
