A winner and two seconds on the first day at York courtesy of LASTCHANCELUCAS (8-1) and TWIRL (5-6) and VAN DER ART (10-1). I was disappointed though as my best three bets were nowhere!
Yet, as always we live to fight another day!
TIMEPIECE 1400 YORK – (nap) (unplaced) the highest rated of these and was third last year. Ran flat behind Izzi Top last time, yet the ground was too soft, prefers better ground and I’m hopeful of a better show this time. (5 point win)
SITTING TENNANT 1630 PERTH – (nb) (3rd – 11-2) ran a good race when second last time on his comeback. Lightly raced and thought a lot of. Should improve for that run and go well. (3 point win)
FENCING 1430 YORK – (treble) (3rd – 7-2) should raise his game and give a better account than his Guineas 6th. Must have a real chance. A class horse. (3 point win)
