Sirius lands City success
Sirius Prospect landed his third success at York when denying Rex Imperator in the Betfred City Of York Stakes.
There was drama at the start as Tony Hamilton exited Fort Bastion leaving the stalls and the loose horse might've intimidated Rex Imperator slightly in the run for home.
Yet Sirius Prospect motored down the centre of the track with a strong late run anyway and was a neck in front of the William Haggas-trained horse at the line.
Dean Ivory's five-year-old won the Coral Sprint Trophy on the Knavesmire in 2011, before landing the Sky Bet Home Of The Price Boost Handicap last month.
Winning jockey Robert Winston told Racing UK: "I quickly had to switch him to the outside and once I did he took off. If anything it's helped my horse [the loose horse].
"It would be nice to think he can go back up to the top where he was. It ranges from six furlongs to a mile [his best trip] - he's a very talented horse."
