After another dismal day on the blog on Saturday I'm blooming hoping my luck changes at the Knavesmire this week. It should be a cracking meeting and I've got Doncaster on Saturday to look forward to aswell. Good luck if you're having a flutter.
MEHDI 1440 York (nap) (3rd – 10-1)
The drop back to six furlongs will help this fella and he should be fit after his first outing. He's got a featherweight here and Hanagan in the saddle. He was a narrow second to HUNTSMAN'S CLOSE in the Ayr Silver Cup last year and that form is decent with that one getting narrowly defeated at Guineas weekend. He should run a big race.
MUTHMIR 1515 York (nb) (unplaced)
He has looked a very smart sprinter last year and must be a Group horse this year! This is a competitve race to begin but one that he should win.
VOICE OF A LEADER 1410 York (treble) (4th – 33-1)
Nothing like a big priced runner in a handicap! This guy has ability but only had one run last year and for me the ground was against him. He has a decent handicap mark based on only a few outings and clearly the handicapper is concerned about his potential. I think he could run a big race on better ground.
TOGETHER FOREVER 1545 York (2nd – 9-4)
This filly has lots of scope and ended last season on a high. She will definitely stay and I think she will give Star of Seville a close run for her money.
