Who To Follow At York On Thursday - 12/05/22

Trainer To Follow - Sir Michael Stoute

The experienced trainer sends a decent team to York on Thursday with one of his best chances on the day coming in the Group Two Middelton Fillies' Stakes with Noon Star looking to make it back to back wins.

Stoute could have another superstar in his yard with Desert Crown looking to stamp his authority on the Derby division in the Group Two Dante Stakes.

The handler heads into the meeting sporting a superb strike rate of 18% for the last two weeks managing to land four winners from his last 22 runners.

Jockey To Follow - Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore is riding out of his skin at the moment and on the second day of the Dante meeting he has a handful of great rides that should put him in the frame again.

In the Group Two Middleton Fillies' Stakes Moore sits in Noon Star who returned with a gritty performance at Nottingham last time out and that should set him up perfectly for this.

In the Dante Stakes he rides Bluegrass for Aidan O'Brien who has to improve on his seasonal debut but like many of O'Brien's horses they usually do.

Other rides for the jockey to take note of are King Of Bavaria in the 5f Listed event and Ahorsewithnoname in the finale for Nicky Henderson.

Moore heads into the week sporting a 40% strike rate for the last two weeks managing 20 winners from his last 50 rides which is just astounding.
