York Day 1
On to another cracking few days of racing with the Dante meeting. I love this time of year, so many good meetings and races in such a little time. As it’s a big meeting I will do my normal best three and then do a tip for each race at York.
ALWAYS THE LADY 1535 YORK – (nap) (unplaced) he has strong claims on his previous form if he stays the extended trip. Has won on soft and good to soft. Must have a chance of a place. (3 points each way)
SIRIUS PROSPECT 1500 YORK – (nb) (unplaced) has not recaptured the awesome form of last year. Yet he seemed to relish bigger fields like this and the ground is getting a bit drier which should suit. (3 points each way)
NEW PLANET 1400 YORK – (treble) (unplaced) is lightely raced and has good form here at York. He has the scope to improve further. (2 points each way)
STAKE = 23 points
RETURNS = 9 points
BANK = – 55.9 points
