York Ebor Day 3 Tips: Four bets for Friday's racing on day three of Ebor Festival

Stradivarius bids for a fourth Lonsdale Cup at York on Friday.
Stradivarius bids for a fourth Lonsdale Cup at York on Friday.

There's a real treat in store on Friday on day three of York's Ebor Festival, as the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes will attract a host of top sprinters, while the legendary Stradivarius will lock horns with Trueshan in the Lonsdale Cup. We take an in-depth look at all Friday's racing and pick out our four best bets on the card...

13:50 York - Sky Bet Handicap

We kick off day three with a hugely competitive renewal of the Sky Bet Handicap and heading the betting is Juan De Montalban, who was a winner at Ascot last time out and has to be respected here. However, at 15/2 it just highlights how wide open a betting heat it is and one of the most fascinating runners is the John & Thady Gosden-trained AMTIYAZ, who at 14/1 looks terrific value, if at his best.

Not seen on a racecourse for over a year, the five-year-old will make his hotly-anticipated return to the track, and if he can recapture the form that saw him win the Copper Horse Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2021 then he has to be considered a major player. He won at the Royal meeting off a mark of 95, and while he failed to win next time out at Newmarket he ran a mighty race off 99 in a competitive contest, so he's been entitled to be given a 1lb rise to a mark of 100.

Friday's contest will be run over a shorter trip, and he's likely to come on for the run, but he's one of the class acts in the race, and he's sure to be doing all his best work at the finish, so the 14/1 on offer, at the time of writing, is worth snapping up in what is a really trappy opener.

Nunthorpe Stakes Odds

14:25 York - Lonsdale Cup

Underfoot conditions could have a huge bearing on the Lonsdale Cup, as Alan King's Trueshan will be hoping rain will hit the Knavesmire in the lead up to the Group 2 event at 14:25 as that will certainly make his task easier of beating Stradivarius, who is bidding for a fourth win in the staying showpiece.

The pair dominate the betting and are likely to fight it out at the finish, as alongside Kyprios, who doesn't head to York, they are the best stayers in training. However, with eight runners in the race then there could be a value contender to finish third and the 14/1 chance QUICKTHORN catches the eye for Hughie Morrison and Tom Marquand.

There's no doubting he would need a monstrous career best to down the two heavyweights at the top of the betting, and would also need them to underperform, but he heads into the race in great form, and he showed last year when finishing second in the Ebor Handicap that he can deliver the goods here. Last seen winning in Group 2 company at Longchamp, he lines up in the form of his life and the son of Nathaniel could well ruffle a few feathers in what is a fascinating renewal.

15:00 York - Gimcrack Stakes

Charlie Appleby last trained the winner of the Gimcrack Stakes back in 2016 when the top class Blue Point stormed to victory, and the Godolphin handler could have another superstar in the making the shape of NOBLE STYLE, who's currently an 3/1 chance to claim the Group 2 prize on Friday afternoon.

A classy winner on debut at Ascot, he beat the top notch Walbank in his maiden success, and while he was off the track for a few months, he returned in scintillating style to land a comfortable half-a-length success in a novice stakes at Newmarket. He will now face the stiffest test of his fledgling career in the Gimcrack, where he will come up against the likes of Royal Scotsman and Marshman, but Noble Style has all the makings of being a really smart performer.

A best-priced 20/1 for next season's 2000 Guineas, the son of Kingman shaped like there's a lot more to come following his cosy win at Flat HQ, and he could well turn out to be one of the star juveniles of the 2022 campaign and is worth following here.

15:35 York - Nunthorpe Stakes

Winter Power was the first three-year-old to win the Nunthorpe Stakes in a decade last season, but the hugely exciting, unbeaten Royal Aclaim will bid for glory in this year's 5f Group 1, and is currently a red-hot 13/8 favourite for. You have to go way back to 2007 to find the last two-year-old winner and that was Kingsgate Native, and The Platinum Queen is a juvenile that has been supplemented for this contest and is the 3/1 second favourite.

However, that pair will have to down some battle hardened speedsters in the feature race on Friday and the 16/1 chance EMARAATY ANA is destined to run a huge race and looks a massive price against the two fancied youngsters. Second to Winter Power in this race 12 months ago, Kevin Ryan's charge then went and bound to victory in the Sprint Cup at Haydock Park over six furlongs last time out to claim Group 1 glory.

Lining up at the highest level once again, the six-year-old failed to land a blow when down the field in the Platinum Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, but he showed signs of form on his last start when an eye-catching sixth in the July Cup at Newmarket. The drop back to five furlongs shouldn't pose too many problems and he's likely to be a prominent figure from the get-go, and with him appearing to come to the boil now then he can at least make the frame here.
