2.05 York

The 2.05 race from York is a Listed contest over the 5f distance. Roger Varians Sardinia Sunset heads the market a short price having run well behind Wesley Wards’ Campanelle at Royal Ascot.

I like one at bigger odds here though and that is DIFFERENT FACE for the Crisford team. Different Face made all last time out staying on well through the line to win quite comfortably. That was a step up from her debut and I think she will continue to improve. York is a good track for front runners and if she can jump well I can see Doyle taken her to the front and with three places on offer she’s a great e/w bet for me. The Crisford team are in flying form as of late too.


2.40 York

The next from York is the Musidora Stakes, a Group 3 contest for the fillies over 1m2f.

Khalid Abdullah has a strong hand here with Franconia, Ricetta and Pocket Square all scheduled to line up represented by Gosden and Charlton.

Franconia was impressive last time out and if she lines up will be very interesting. The one for me here though is RICETTA NB. It has to be a positive that she is the mount of Frankie who would have had the choice from the Gosden pair. She has had two runs since racing resumed winning both well so she should be at peak fitness which may not be the case for Pocket Square who may improve for the run. This daughter of Kingman looks sure to keep progressing as a 3-year-old and she has to go well here.


3.15 York

The Dante Stakes is up next over 1m2f and any other year would be one of the main Derby trials. After the Derby on Saturday it’s obviously a disappointing renewal but I think HIGHEST GROUND is definitely a Group 1 horse in waiting and is destined for bigger and better things. He has won both starts to date beating Waldkonig last time. This son of Frankel is only going to continue to get better and better under the watchful eye of Sir Michael Stoute and he will prove too good for them here.


1.50 Newmarket

The 1.50 race is the Sir Henry Cecil Stakes which is a fitting name for the great man. Lord Campari heads the market for the Varian stable after an impressive win last time out.

The horse I like here is MAGICAL MORNING for the John Gosden team. Frankie is over at York so Kirkby takes the reigns and he’s riding as well as anyone at the moment. Magical Morning won well last time out staying on strongly given the impression there is more to come. I think he will be able to complete the hat-trick here on ground he has won on the last twice.


2.25 Newmarket 

The 2.25 race is the Bahrain Trophy Stakes over 1m5f.

I really like the Haggas trained AL AASY here who couldn’t have been any more impressive last time out powering clear to win by 10l. There is definitely plenty more to come from Al Aasy and that progression can continue here with another victory. Haggas is in flying form at the moment and Crowley is a man to rely on as he proven several times at Royal Ascot last month.


3.00 Newmarket

The 3.00 at HQ is one of the more intriguing races on the card in my opinion. The market is headed by Qaader and Tactical with several runners who finished in behind them at Royal Ascot running.

I don’t think it was a strong renewal of the Coventry Stakes so I’m happy to focus on the Windsor Castle front two Tactical and Yazaman.

I think YAZAMAN NAP will turn that form round here. Tactical had the perfect run in that race and was more streetwise than Yazaman on that ocassion. Yazaman was drawn on the wrong side there, ended up crossing over the track, got an awful run having to switch several times and still stayed on strongly closing on Tactical at the line. I think he will have learnt so much from that run and will progress past Tactical here. He has to be a great bet at the prices and he is my NAP.


3.35 Newmarket

The 3.35 race at Newmarket the bet365 handicap over 6f.

I like DANCININTHESTREET here for that man Haggas again. He went straight in my notebook after his run last time out behind a group horse in a handicap Art Power who has won since. He had no luck in running there and stayed on powerfully in the latter stages of the race when getting a clear run. I think he wins this if Fallon can navigate his way through successful and at the prices I’m happy to take that chance.
