A cracking few cards on offer today at York and Haydock! This time next week we will be gearing up for the Derby, lets hope the weather picks up. Hoping for a few winners today to keep topping up the profit on the blog. Here are my selections for today :
ROYAL RASCAL 1430 CHESTER (nap) – (2nd – 3-1 = £1.87) ran in some top races last year following on from a very successful season before that beating Odooj and running Rodshu Queen close. This is more her level and should run a very big race from stall 1 off a very appealing mark.
SIRIUS PROSPECT 1350 YORK (nb) – (2nd – 3-1 = £1.87) has 3 wins here and the latest off this current mark in a class 1 listed event. Has two wins to his name on soft and 4 on good so the ground should suit. I think he is the best horse in the race and will hopefully show his true colours.
BODY AND SOUL 1450 YORK (treble) – (2nd – 17-2 = £5.31) this boy is due! He has won a this level beating Moviesta here and he also boasts the defeat of Hototo is his youth. The Duke of York Stakes was a step too far last time and this is more realisitc. Big chance
CLEVER COOKIE 1420 YORK – (WON – DEAD HEAT – 3-1 = £5.62) I'm chancing this one to improve again. He was very impressive last time beating Tres Coronas. This is another step up and he is raised 8lbs but with form on this softer ground he has another great chance.

GARSWOOD 1440 YORK (-£5.00)
