There are five bets for today’s racing at York and Newbury.

York Tips

14:30 – 1m21/2f John Smith’s Cup Handicap (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2)

Despite the big field and competitive nature of the race, this looks a good opportunity for the lightly raced CARADOC (1 point win bet at 6/1) to improve on his already impressive 44% strike rate on turf (4-9). Although he stays 1m4f, this extended ten-furlong trip looks his optimum, and he was placed on his only previous visit here. He was well backed for his comeback run at Epsom earlier this month and ran on strongly from off the pace to finish sixth. Trainer Ed Walker was open about the fact that he may have needed that run, so he should be much sharper today.  

At a bigger price, I’m also taking a chance on EUCHEN GLEN (0.5 point win bet at 28/1), whose last two runs at York have produced a third and a win. That victory came in this race two years ago and he looks to have been prepared with this race in mind again. Excuses can be made for both of his runs this year, which have come following a long absence. These conditions look ideal, and he still looks fairly treated off a mark of 102.

15:05 – 5f John Smith’s City Walls Stakes (Listed)

QUE AMORO (1 point win bet at 10/3) made a very pleasing seasonal reappearance in a Listed race at Ayr last month and can follow up here. This Michael Dods-trained filly has now won three of her last four starts and looks better than a Listed class performer. She will receive weight from all but two of today’s rivals and has an excellent record under Paul Mulrennan.

Newbury Tips

15:25 – 1m4f bet365 Aphrodite Fillies’ Stakes (Listed)

The beautifully bred VIRGIN SNOW (NAP – 1 point win bet at 9/2) is a daughter of the multiple Group 1 winner Snow Fairy and has improved with each of her four starts to date. Having won comfortably at Haydock last month, she stepped up to contest a Group 3 race on the All Weather at Newcastle three weeks ago. Although she could only finish second that day, she lost little in defeat and should be better back on turf and up in trip.

16:00 – 6f bet365 Hackwood Stakes (Group 3)

THE TIN MAN (1 point win bet at 11/2) has made 16 of his last 22 starts in Group 1 company and can take advantage of this drop in class. James Fanshawe’s stable star is a three-time winner at the top level and was last seen in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot (beaten by just 4.5-lengths). He has won over this course and distance, and Champion Jockey Oisin Murphy takes the ride again.
