York host a stellar card on Friday to round off three great days of action on the Knavesmire and we have a nice priced each way ante-post selection for the final day of the Dante meeting.

On Friday in the Matchbook "Best Value" Exchange Handicap over 1m 2 1/2f we think that the Sir Michael Stoute trained Satono Japan looks overpriced at 7/1.

The four year old has jockey Ryan Moore on board which is a good sign from an ante-post point of view and also race angle, with the rider in fine form.

The son of Deep Impact has been seen four times in his career to date, winning on Debut back in October 2019 at Kempton over 7f, looking like a very smart prospect.

Back for his three year old campaign and he was seen twice, finishing third at Wolverhampton when stepped up to 9.5f and then running no race over 10f in the Listed Churchill Stakes at Lingfield.

This colt has been waited patiently on and was rested until April where he returned over 1m2f at Chelmsford and looked to need the run, but should be much fitter for this event.

He makes his turf debut on Friday on good ground which will suit his pedigree and with both the handler and jockey in fine form and this colt holding bundles of potential, the 7/1 could be a big price.
