Telecaster is 10-3 favourite with the sponsors for Saturday’s Sky Bet York Stakes after nine entries were made for the Group Two prize.
Hughie Morrison’s colt got back to winning ways in the Group Three La Coupe at Longchamp last time and is set to return to the scene of his greatest triumph, a length defeat of Too Darn Hot in the 2019 Dante Stakes.
His main market rival at this stage is Mark Johnston-trained Elarqam, who is bidding to become the first dual winner of the York race following his three-and-a-quarter length victory over Addeybb last year.

Roger Charlton has confirmed Aspetar to be on target for the race. He landed a Group One in Cologne last season and chased home Magny-Cours in the Gala Stakes at Sandown on his reappearance.
David O’Meara intends to run last year’s Queen Anne Stakes winner Lord Glitters, who finished fourth behind Mohaather in the Summer Mile on his return to action at Ascot earlier this month.

His assistant Jason Kelly said: “The run at Ascot blew the cobwebs away and he’s come out of the race well. We’re stepping up to ten furlongs but he runs well at York and it will be interesting to see how he goes.”
Sky Bet Head of Sports PR Michael Shinners said: “It’s a very strong six-day entry and I’m really looking forward to the race. It’s great to see Elarqam back in there but there are a host of big threats to him and it looks very open at this stage.”
