One of the feature events of the day at York is the Group Two City Of York Stakes over seven furlongs and Space Blues looks to be one of our best bets on the card.
The four year old was one of the most progressive horses in training last season winning his last four races in fine style including the Group Two Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and the Group One Prix Maurice De Gheest.
The son of Dubawi started last season at Haydock in the Listed Spring Trophy Stakes and was then sent over to ParisLongchamp for the Prix le Porte Malliot, where he again improved to beat stablemate D'bai.
His progressive nature then saw him land the Group Two at Goodwood but his Group One win at Deauville topped off his season.
Back this term in February he picked up from where he left off landing a Sprint event in Saudi Arabia, but he then gave one of the worst runs of his career for a while at Meydan after that.
Given a break, he returned at Goodwood last month in the Group Two Lennox Stakes and despite hating the bad ground he ran on well to finish fourth in a bunched finish.
That run should have put him spot on for this event and he looks hard to oppose on the best of his form.
