'Elvis' is back on big stage at York; RACING.

ELVSTROEM, known as 'the people's horse' in his native Australia, continues his European adventure with a chance to record a Royal Ascot victory at York tomorrow.

Choisir flew the flag for Australia at Royal Ascot two years ago with a memorable double in the King's Stand and Golden Jubilee Stakes.

Those victories raised eyebrows in the racing community Down Under and encouraged Elvstroem's connections to plan an ambitious worldwide campaign for the five-year-old.

The Tony Vasil-trained entire, who is nicknamed Elvis and even has his own website, is a durable individual and has been on the go since last August.

He is clearly a good traveller, as his last four runs have been in different countries - Dubai, Hong Kong, Britain and France. On his first port of call, Vasil's globetrotter won the Group One Dubai Duty Free at Nad Al Sheba under regular rider Nash Rawiller, before a disappointing run in Hong Kong.
