York Day Four Preview

13:50 - Wissahickon

The first race of the day is the Group Three Sky Bet And Symphony Group Strensall Stakes and in this sharp looking contest we have sided with John Gosden's Wissahickon.

This colt is a very talented four year old who absolutely smashed up the all weather scene at the start of the year winning three out of his four races.

He took two Listed contests and the Group 3 Winter Derby Stakes with ease but was beaten by Matterhorn in the Middle Distance All Weather Championships race which was a huge shock.

He has not been seen since that day but looks to wanting to make a revival on the turf where he also has some smart form especially when last seen back in September taking the 33 runner Cambridgeshire Handicap Stakes.

Big Player with Dettori on board.

14:25 - Eminence

The Melrose Handicap sees a decent sized field of runners go to post with that we have gone for a horse that does not mind a rough race and that is Eminence.

The Aidan O'Brien trained three year old has ran to a really high standard this season not finishing outside the top three on all five of his starts.

He scored on debut and has gone from strength to strength ever since placing in a tough handicap at Royal Ascot over 1 mile 4f and did the same at Goodwood last time out.

Has to be massively respected.

15:00 - Speak In Colours

Joseph O'Brien's Speak In Colours has been highly progressive this season and goes for us in the Group Two City Of York Stakes over seven furlongs.

This colt started his season off nicely at the Curragh in a Group Two finishing a good second, he then went to Royal Ascot and was a good fourth in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

He then got off the mark for the season in the Listed Dash Stakes over In Ireland and from there headed to Goodwood for his first crack at seven furlongs and he was an unlucky fourth.

He never got a clear run and in this one he can improve massively.

15:40 - Ben Vrackie & Wells Farhh Go

The feature race of the final day from York is the £1 million Sky Bet Ebor Handicap and in this 22 runner field we have gone for two selections.

The first is the John Gosden trained Ben Vrackie who ran really well on his seasonal debut only finishing second by a short head to the progressive Baghdad at Royal Ascot.

He was less than impressive last time out and back down slightly in trip should see him get back to his form from his first race of the season.

The other selection in the race at a bigger price is the Tim Easterby's Wells Farhh Go who has looked good winning Listed and Group races during his career and should firmly be in the frame here.

16:10 - Alligator Alley

We have gone with another Joseph O'Brien trained runner in the Listed Julia Graves Roses Stakes over five furlongs and Alligator Alley looks a smart two year old.

The colt has only raced four times in his career but all of them have been to a high standard especially his last one when a narrow second to Liberty Beach in the Listed Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood.

He met some serious trouble and stayed on superbly, Liberty Beach ran well the next time in a better race and has franked that form which makes him a leading player in this one.

16:45 - Rise Hall & Society Red

The penultimate contest of the Ebor meeting is the Class 2 Sky Bet Handicap over 1 mile 2 furlongs and with a monstrous field we have two picks.

The first is the Martyn Meade trained Rise Hall who has been in impressive form this season with two wins and two seconds and after winning nicely last time out this son of Frankel has only gone up three pounds making him a player.

Society Red for trainer Richard Fahey is our other selection and this course and distance winner comes into this race on a really nice mark and loves racing at this track.

17:20 - Moss Gill & Que Amoro

The final selections of the meeting come in the Apprentice Handicap over five furlongs and in this sprint contest we have gone with Moss Gill and Que Armoro.

Moss Gill has been in electric form for trainer James Bethell this season with four seconds and two wins in his last six races with one of them over course and distance. Big player.

The final runner is our each way shout Que Amoro who put in a really impressive front running running display last time out and although up in the weights has to be respected.
