Horse Racing Tips: Song tipped to hit the right tune at York against Stradivarius

MAY 13th

We have reached the final day of York's Dante Festival and Friday's action will see the return of the legendary stayer Stradivarius in the Yorkshire Cup at 15:35, but some tipsters have elected to take on the eight-year-old will a value alternative. We take a look at all Friday's racing which sees seven meetings take place and we pick out some of the most eye-catching naps across the country...

Can Stradivarius claim a third Yorkshire Cup?

Not one of our racing tipsters is napping Stradivarius to claim Yorkshire Cup success at 15:35, but they have opted to side with the Dermot Weld-trained Search For A Song, who is arguably the main challenger to the John & Thady Gosden-trained superstar. Currently a best-priced 3/1 for the Group 2 marathon, Search For A Song has been napped by four tipsters for today's event and they include Robin Goodfellow from the Daily Mail and Andrew Bladen from the Wolverhampton Express & Star.

Rory Delargy of the Irish Field is taking on both Stradivarius and Search For A Song with the Mark Johnston-trained Thunderous, who is currently a 10/1 outsider for the Yorkshire Cup, but he shaped with promise last time out when a fine second in the Ormonde Stakes and the former Dante Stakes winner at this meeting could be a shock challenger for what is a fascinating five-runner event.

There's a sparkling final day to York's card this afternoon and RP Ratings, who sits second in the naps table is backing the 10/1 chance Safran, who lines up in the 16:45 event on the Knavesmire, while other eye-catching selections include Al Qareem in the 16:10 race at York, and that 7/1 shot has been napped by Ian Gaughan of the Irish Herald, and Girl On Film, who is a 13/2 chance for the 14:25 at York and is the selection of Fortunatus of the Sheffield Star.

For those looking to kick off the afternoon at York on a winning note could well side Yahsat, who is the selection of Marlborough from the Daily Telegraph, and the Karl Burke-trained two-year-old will look to build on a decent win at Pontefract last time out, and the youngster is a 7/1 chance.

Yorkshire Cup Odds

Current naps table leader Expert Eye from On The Nose veers away from the action at York and heads to Hamilton's evening Flat card, and the top tipster, who has a current profit of £39.96, has tipped up the 15/2 chance Flying Moon in the 18:45 race. The course and distance winner is now 5lbs lower than his last winning mark, so if the six-year-old can return to his best then he looks a leading player at eye-catching odds.

Two of the tipsters in the naps table are looking to record a fourth winning selection on the bounce and Luke Tucker of the Cambridge Evening News heads to Aintree's 19:00 race for the best bet of the day, and Tucker is siding with the 4/1 chance Corran Cross, who lines up for Richard Bandey and Harry Bannister.

Meanwhile, Mercury of the Daily Post, who has also landed a hat-trick of winning tips, heads to York for the best bet and that form tipster is backing the Tom Clover-trained Rogue Bear in the 15:00 event, and that charge is currently a 9/4 chance to claim glory on the Knavesmire.

Punters looking for a huge priced tip on Friday should look no further than the Jim Goldie-trained Glen Lomond, who is a 40/1 chance for the 20:55 at Hamilton, and that outsider is the best bet of the Sunday Express tipster.
