ITV Racing Tips: Check out RaceOlly's six best bets for York on Friday
We head into the final day of the Dante Festival at York, and our top tipster RaceOlly has picked out his best six bets on the card as he looks to continue his excellent tipping form on the Knavesmire...
13:50 York - Knights The New Name For Langleys British EBF Marygate Fillies' Stakes
A single figure draw is crucial in these sprints, the race has had 10 runners and over 11 times lately and only one double figure draw winner. JUNGLE TIME ran a good race on debut behind Carmela who reopposes here and is drawn in 13 which could easily make up for that two lengths that split them at Yarmouth. Jungle Time improved again then last time when easily winning at Musselburgh and caught the eye with the way she travelled and her run style is perfect for this from the good draw. Karl Burke has had seven winners from 34 runners over the last two weeks, a 21% win rate and has had a fantastic York festival so far with his horses finishing 02221. Karl Burke's two-year-olds have a 38% win rate this season on turf and a huge 69% at least placing.

14:25 York - Oaks Farm Stables Fillies' Stakes
SCOTCH MISTRESS is improving with every run and comes here very much on the up with more potentially to come. The draw hasn’t been so kind to him in 11, but there’s a chance they’ll group together and it won’t matter so much with only the 12 runners. David O’Meara does a good job with his three-year-olds and since 2017 has a win rate of 15%, 13%, 15%, 16% and 15% each year with them, three of them years would have resulted in big profits if backing them all with £1 win stakes. Twilight Son's three-year-olds are also worth following as they boast a 30% place rate after 410 runners.

15:00 York - Paddy Power 'I Love Steak' Handicap
LOVE IS GOLDEN has the perfect run style for York and this race should suit from a good draw in stall 1. Four-year-olds have won nine of the last 16 runnings of this and three runs over this trip this season have been good. The first when 2nd to one that won again next time out and last time when a unlucky loser when stuck in a pocket and flying home to grab a place. Last run can be written off as he’s never ran well at Newmarket in four attempts and York is sure to suit a lot more. Placed off marks 2lbs higher last year and just 2lbs above last win mark where despite hitting traffic he beat one that went on to win next time out.

16:10 York - Paddy Power 'Fill Thi Boots' Handicap
Another one looking to keep up the Karl Burke form at this year's York festival is AL QAREEM who improved a fair bit for a step up in trip last month and wasn’t fair behind a potentially very decent horse last time out where he ran like another step up in trip would be ideal. The 3rd won next time to frank that form also and this further step up in trip is perfect. Karl Burke's three-year-olds have a 18% win rate this season.

16:45 York - Yorkshire Equine Practice Handicap
UGO GREGORY was very rusty on seasonal debut at Redcar after a 163-day break last month and that run should have put him in a much better position for this now. Won over course and distance last season in a race that received several form boasts and beat Mossbawn by two lengths on that occasion. Has a 2lbs swing in his favour for that, but finds himself five times the price. Single figure draw is a huge plus and Tim Easterby had a winner at York yesterday with Cruyff Turn.

17:20 York - Longines Irish Champions Weekend Handicap
Another Karl Burke selection to finish up where he’s hopefully enhanced his already good York festival earlier in the day. FAST RESPONSE has ideal conditions here and although saddled with a double figure draw here, four of the eight previous winners also had that burden. Excuses last time on all weather debut over six furlongs and solid performances before that including in a listed race at Ayr which worked out very well and has since thrown up plenty of winners.
