York - May 10 2022
York 14:35
Frankie Dettori

Emily Upjohn

J: Frankie Dettori
T: John & Thady Gosden
Age: 3
Weight: 9-2
OR: 99
Days: 19

The feature event of the afternoon is the Group Three Musidora Stakes seen as one of the last trials before the Epsom Oaks and John & Thady Gosden's Emily Upjohn.

This three year old daughter of Sea The Stars looks a superstar in the making off the back of her two runs to date.Making her first start last year at Wolves over 9.5f she saw off a nice challenger for Godolphin in Secret Image, who then went onto frank the form.

Put away for this season Emily Upjohn made her sole start this term at Sandown over 1m2f and in one of the most impressive performances in the division this season, she went on to win by close to 10 lengths under a penalty.

She looks to be a bit of a freak and deserves her chance in this step up in grade.Should be tough to beat if improving again.


Trainer To Follow - Kevin Ryan

The Northern based trained Kevin Ryan has a great record with his horses at the Yorkshire tracks, especially at York and he sends a strong team on the first day of the Dante meeting.

In the opening race of the day he fields Forza Orta who heads into the event off the back of a nice win at Hamilton last time out.

In the six furlong handicap he holds a leading hand with Bergerac and also Bielsa is no stranger of winning these sorts of events.

Emaraaty Ana goes for the yard in the Group Two Clipper Logistic Stakes and if getting back to his Group One form has to be taken seriously.

Other nice chances for Ryan include Fast And Loose, The Cookstown Cafu and Thunder Moor.

Jockey To Follow - David Egan

David Egan has a nice book of rides of the first day of the Dante meeting and might be a more left field suggestion of a jockey to follow across the day with some nice priced runners.

In the opener he rides the outsider Graphite who needs to bounce back to form after two tough runs, but then in the 6f event has a leading chance with Woven who is in stellar form.

Egan gets the ride on the Dragon Symbol in the Clipper Logistic Stakes who has some serious sprint form at the top level.

The youngster rides another outsider in the penultimate event of the afternoon for Eric Alston, which is his final ride of the day.
