The feature race of the afternoon at York on day three of the Ebor festival is the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes over 5f and Royal Aclaim could be a superstar.
Seen three times in her career to date making her debut at Newcastle last term as a juvenile she went on to win impressively seeing off the likes of Group One winner Perfect Power, Robasta and Fearby.
Returning as a three year old this term she picked up from where she left off at Bath in a Novice Stakes winning very easily over the 5f and the third and fourth have since come out and franked the form.
Royal Aclaim made the step up into Listed class at York over the Nunthorpe trip and saw off a proven field of sprinters with ease to land the City Of Walls Stakes by an easy two lengths and that has really put her on the map as a sprinter to follow.
She barely got out of third gear and the Tate yard are now very excited about her chances in this event where she is currently the strong favourite.
