Day Two of the Ebor Festival at York racecourse this week is the filling in a sandwich of four fabulous days of top quality racing, and after the anticipation for Day One, the following day sees no drop off in quality or intrigue. Here, we focus our attentions on Thursday's card and pick out our best bets for the action...

13:50 - Lowther Stakes

Anyone that read my piece on my Nap, Lay and Each-Way fancy for this wonderful week on the Knavesmire will already know how keen I am on the favourite for this race. DRAMATISED was one of the most impressive winners of the entire week at Royal Ascot when springing away from the field in the Queen Mary to justify favouritism for Karl Burke. This is a filly with a potent turn of foot and I can't see anything in this field, despite the obvious quality of her rivals, that will be able to live with her raw speed if she is in the same form as she was at the Royal Meeting.

With the prospect of further improvement from this daughter of Showcasing she is my best bet on the day and of the whole meeting and I'm pleasantly surprised to see her still available at even money. Mawj is a good filly in her own right and is a rival worthy of respect and her win in the Group Two Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes last time out was a career best. However, even on that performance I can't see her laying a glove on a peak form Dramatised, who I expect to stamp herself as the top juvenile filly of her age group in this Group Two.

15:00 - Clipper Logistics Handicap

A handicap just short of a mile at York on Ebor week is never a point and shoot job, with plenty of runners involved here with crossed form line throughout the season so far and more than a handful weighted for success. Blue For You is just about favourite at the time of writing and last time out he was three and a quarter lengths behind Orbaan, another who will take his chance here, at Glorious Goodwood. There is a nine pound swing between the pair in this race and that indicates why Blue For You is ahead of his Goodwood conqueror with oddsmakers, however Orbaan since won again on the Shergar Cup card and is arguably in the form of his life. Of the pair I would be more inclined to be with the latter, but it is another runner in the aforementioned Goodwood race that appeals to me at the prices for this York contest.

OUZO was beaten into fourth that day after attempting to lead from pillar to post, and it looked to be his stamina which caused the issue on that day. Saffie Osbourne retains the ride for father Jamie and her three pound claim could come in handy in this condensed handicap, as will her experience aboard this headstrong runner from Goodwood. If she can get him to settle a little better and perhaps even take a lead, I think he can be seen to better effect on the Knavesmire. He is double the price of the winner that day at Goodwood and looks a couple of points too big so is worth an each-way wager.

Yorkshire Oaks Odds

15:35 - Yorkshire Oaks

The feature race on Day Two of the Ebor Fesitval is the Group One Yorkshire Oaks and it is TUESDAY that will be carrying my cash for this one. The Epsom Oaks winner put in a brilliant performance when winning the Classic that day and to my eye there was no fluke about this performance. Admittedly, a degree of forgiveness is required after she bombed out last time out in the Irish Derby, but there is no one better to get a horse back on song for a big prize like this one than Aidan O'Brien. With this race seeing a clash of older horses and three year olds, Tuesday will be receiving weight from the favourite Alpinista and this is another tick in the Classic winners' box.

Magical Lagoon is a rival I definitely respect and she will receive the same weight for age as the selection from both the favourite and La Petite Coco, while Raclette is an interesting French raider and is not without her chance. Alpinista is looking for an incredible sixth win in a row and is the main danger, unsurprisingly given her price, but at over double her price I cannot resist forgiving Tuesday that Curragh run and putting faith in her bouncing right back to form to take out another Oaks title.

17:20 - British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Handicap

There is no getting away from the fact favourite Queen Aminatu could make a mockery of this race. Hayley Turner's mount is set to carry just eight stone three, is set to go up six pounds after this race and looked every inch as good as ever last time out when an unlucky second at Haydock. She has won twice already earlier this season on the all weather and certainly is the one to beat in this race, but the odds reflect that.

When there is one in a race as tricky as this taking out so much of the market it often means there are others overpriced in behind her. One I will be backing each-way is the Denis Hogan runner ADAAY IN ASIA, a runner that has already racked up a hat trick of wins and comes here searching for a four timer. She won impressively at the Shergar Cup meeting and due to her wonderful form comes to this contest off a career high mark, however I think it is well within her grasp to defy the rise and a step up in trip could eke out further improvement in this likeable filly. She is definitely one to back each-way due to the potential of the favourite to blow the race apart, but should Queen Aminatu struggle I'd expect Adaay In Asia to be the one to take advantage or at the very least chase her home.
