York Day One

Well the heavens have opened and York is soft. This has surely had a negative impact on the calibre of some of the races. However, we've got what we've got. The Dante gives us the next Derby clue, and to be honest I've not been impressed with anything so far! Enjoy the first day and be lucky.
 
ASTAIRE 1515 YORK (nap) – was a horse that really impressed me last year and just kept on improving. The Greenham was obviously too far and he drops back to sprinting now. Three year olds dont have a good record in this, but the horse is 2 from 2 here, including a soft ground Gimcrack success. I think he's top class and could bounce back big time here!
 
ROYAL RASCAL 1445 YORK (nb) – this horse has two wins over 6 furlongs here on soft and I was really impressed by his victory over Odooj here a couple of years ago. He ran awfully last year, but the ground was a determining factor in that. He should run a big race! I also like the chances of BLAINE who seemed to run better last time and is on a good mark judged on his Gimcrack success here. VALBCHEK also can't be discounted off top weight as he is a smart sprinter.
 
PASAKA BOY 1345 YORK (treble) – the horse could improve further as a 4 year old. He caught my eye when winning over this trip at Epsom last year. His comeback run wasnt great and he is now only 2lbs higher than that
Epsom victory. He should offer more this season and on his second run
 
MADAME CHIANG 1415 EPSOM – I'm taking a chance on this horse and she could be something special. If you judge her the way she won her debut then you can see potential and that was on soft ground too. She's worth a chance here with questions about a few.
 
Hope we get a few good runs. Please retweet my post on twitter if you liked this and give me a follow too.

Newmarket Day 1

This is such a great meeting splitting Royal ascot and Glorious Goodwood with some quality races on offer. These are my best three for tomorrow plus one extra elsewhere.
 
DANADANA 1440 NEWMARKET (nap) – the ground is key for this horse. After a decent win at Chester the ground was too sticky at Sandown abd we didnt see the best of the horse. He has won 4/4 on good to firm and I expect him to come from off a strong pace set by UNIVERSAL. Ryan Moore is another huge plus!
 
PASAKA BOY 1515 NEWMARKET (nb) – this horse was ultra impressive I thought when winning a competitive race on Derby day. The trip at Royal Ascot was too far and too challenging. The return to 10furlongs will suit and he had loads of these beaten at Epsom yet is a much bigger price than them today. Looked progressive at Epsom and was raised 5lbs, has since dropped a pound and is still a better horse than his current mark I reckon.
 
BROWN SUGAR 1410 NEWMARKET (treble) – you had to like the way this horse won last time and despite this being a top race this horse looks class and could quite easily be up to this level.
 
FINESSE 1455 WARWICK – the step up to a mile last time was too far and she returns to 7f today and to the scene of her last success. The poor run last time has seen her drop back 3lbs to her last winning mark.
