Barney Roy and Ulysses clash in the Juddmonte

Coral-Eclipse principals Ulysses and Barney Roy are set for an intriguing rematch in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York on Wednesday.

The pair treated racing fans to a thrilling finish at Sandown last month and are among seven horses declared for the Group One over an extended mile and a quarter.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Ulysses got the Eclipse verdict by a nose and has since finished second to Enable in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

The Richard Hannon-trained Barney Roy has not raced since the Eclipse and Ulysses will not be the only old foe he will be meeting on the Knavesmire.

Barney Roy is joint favourite at 5/2 to take revenge for his defeat with Ulysses at 10/3.

Aidan O’Brien is represented by dual Guineas winner Churchill, also joint fav at 5/2 who was beaten by Barney Roy in the James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.

O’Brien is also represented by Cliffs Of Moher, who was second in the Investec Derby and did not have the best of runs when fourth in the Eclipse.

John Gosden has rerouted Musidora scorer Shutter Speed after taking her out of an intended engagement at Deauville at the weekend because of soft ground.

Roger Charlton’s Tattersalls Gold Cup winner Decorated Knight and Clive Cox’s Group One victor My Dream Boat complete a stellar list.

Ulysses and Barney Roy are to go head to head once more in a rematch of their Coral-Eclipse battle at Juddmonte’s International Stakes at York on Wednesday.

Shutter Speed (10/1), Decorated Knight (14/1), and My Dream Boat (40/1) complete the list for the Group One race.

Yasmin Leonard, spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “We’ve seen plenty of money coming in for this already.

“It’s going to be a great start to the Yorkshire Ebor Festival as Barney Roy (5/2) and Ulysses (10/3) do battle once more and Aidan O’Brien will be hoping Churchill (5/2) can put a stop to both.”
