Who To Follow At York On Day Four

Horse To Follow - Wissahickon

Wissahickon is a very talented four year old who absolutely smashed up the all weather scene at the start of the year winning three out of his four races.

He took two Listed contests and the Group 3 Winter Derby Stakes with ease but was beaten by Matterhorn in the Middle Distance All Weather Championships race which was a huge shock.

He has not been seen since that day but looks to wanting to make a revival on the turf where he also has some smart form especially when last seen back in September taking the 33 runner Cambridgeshire Handicap Stakes.

Frankie Dettori has had a stellar week and should give this colt a chance on his first time back on turf for a while.

Trainer To Follow - John Gosden

We put John Gosden up on the first day as the trainer to follow and although it is an obvious one again we believe after a super three days already, the fourth will be much the same for the handler.

He has had a stellar week with many of his superstar horses performing to the highest level with Enable landing the Group One Yorkshire Oaks and Stradivarius for the second year in a row winning the Lonsdale Cup and taking the £1 million bonus.

Gosden could round off the week in superb style with two big runners with Wissahickon in the first race of the day, as we have already put it up as our horse to follow there is not much explanation needed but this horse has been labelled as a Group horse that has been running in handicaps and this is now his time to shine.

The Ebor is the feature race of the entire meeting and the trainer has Ben Vrackie. This colt ran really well on his seasonal debut only finishing second by a short head to the progressive Baghdad at Royal Ascot.

He was less than impressive last time out and back down slightly in trip should see him get back to his form from his first race of the season.

Jockey To Follow - Donnacha O'Brien

For the final day at York the jockey we believe has a big chance to pick up some winners is Donnacha O'Brien who is yet to have a winner this week but holds a handful of decent rides on Saturday.

The young Irishman has been riding more frequently for his brother than his father of late and has also picked up rides off other Irish trainers like Willie Mullins.

His big ones tomorrow are on board Joseph's Speak In Colours in the City Of York Stakes this colt started his season off nicely at the Curragh in a Group Two finishing a good second, he then went to Royal Ascot and was a good fourth in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

He then got off the mark for the season in the Listed Dash Stakes over In Ireland and from there headed to Goodwood for his first crack at seven furlongs and he was an unlucky fourth, he never got a clear run and in this one he can improve massively.

In the big race of the day the Ebor Handicap he rides for Willie Mullins on True Self who has been superb since reverted to the flat and if being better than her last two runs and getting back to last seasons form she is certainly one to watch out for.

The final big ride for Donnacha is in the Listed Julia Graves Roses Stakes over five furlongs and Alligator Alley looks a smart two year old.

The colt has only raced four times in his career but all of them have been to a high standard especially his last one when a narrow second to Liberty Beach in the Listed Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood.
