ARABIAN MOON'S prospects of running in the Ebor Handicap at York on Wednesday increased yesterday when 31 were left in the mile and threequarter handicap. Clive Brittain's three-year-old is now 25th in the weights for the contest which has a safety limit of 22. Arabian Moon is 10-1.

Henry Cecil's Endorsement has been taken out of the race. Cecil still has Eminence Grise entered. Aidan O'Brien has left in Theatreworld and Genghis Khan. Travelmate is 7-1 favourite. The surprise withdrawal was High And Mighty. Frankie Dettori rides Mark Johnston's Mardani.

Royal Anthem and Almutawakel were yesterday cut for Tuesday's Juddmonte International by Coral. Godolphin will be represented by Almutawakel and Central Park.

Ramruma, the Oaks and Irish Oaks winner, heads the 13 entries for the Yorkshire Oaks. Rosselli runs in Thursday's Group One Nunthorpe Stakes at York following a pleasing racecourse gallop at Beverley.
