York Dante Festival….Yorkshire Cup….Stradivarius

Hello.

A very successful Dante day yesterday with an 11-1 and 8-1 winner, three in all for the blog. Coronet and Roaring Lion very impressive! Game on for the Derby for John Gosden?

Today sees Stradivarius a short-priced favourite for the Yorkshire Cup for stayers, a Group 2 race in the British Champions Series. Nice to see the stayers getting the recognition they deserve with the million pound bonus for the horse who can take the prestige ‘two mile races’ over the season. Willie Mullins is obviously interested! He sends over Max Dynamite and Wicklow Brave. An excellent test for Stradivarius, a horse with big potential.

Tips for today are….

Fillies Stakes….5f….Listed….NO LIPPY….impressive start to her career

Michael Seely Memorial….1m….Listed….THREADING….obvious chance on last season’s form but needs to improve again

Yorkshire Cup….1m6f….Group 2….STRADIVARIUS….Leger form strong

Equinity Techno H’cap….1m2f….MASTER CARPENTER….took this last year, good each way odds

TV racing for me today after two great days at York!
