Times tops Cup contenders
Times Up and High Jinx head the eight declarations for the Doncaster Cup at the Town Moor track on Friday.
Times Up gave John Dunlop a final big-race success before his retirement last September and the seven-year-old is now trained by his son, Ed and showed signs of a return to form when third in the Lonsdale Cup at York last month.
High Jinx was second in the Group One Prix du Cadran at Longchamp after his Doncaster effort and has had just the one run so far this season. That came in the Henry II Stakes at Sandown in May when he was fourth to Gloomy Sunday.
Repeater, who was fourth in this race in 2012 when trained by Sir Mark Prescott, will be having his first race for David O'Meara.
Last year's Ascot Gold Cup hero Colour Vision will try to improve on his seventh place in this race 12 months ago. Biographer, Chiberta King, Desert Recluse and Mutual Regard complete the line-up.
There were five withdrawals at the final declaration stage - Ahzeemah, Ernest Hemingway, Tac de Boistron, Tropical Beat and Statutory.
