The first race of the day at York on day two of the Dante meeting is the five furlong Class 2 Handicap and with such a big field heading to post we have two selections.
The first is the experienced Copper Knight for Tim Easterby, who has been dropping down the weights and looks to be on a very handy mark.
The seven year old has been around the block and then some over the last few years and has been raced frequently in these types of events.
Having been a very talented sprinter over this distance and on soft ground, he went up to a rating of 106, but since then has been slowly dropping down the handicap and now races off the same mark as he did at Chester last week when finishing a superb second behind serial winner Jabbarockie.
He nearly exploited his mark at 85 last time out and now 7/1 to do the same he has a big chance over a course and distance he has won before.
