No advice from Ireland today
Selected York – good ground on this flat and galloping track
1.45 Sacred is a worthy short priced fav after her excellent 2nd at Royal Ascot and this longer trip very much in her favour and will be hard to beat, but this is a good field and like the look of a few longshots . On My Way , despite running green , sluiced in on debut on the all weather and ran a cracker at Royal Ascot last time when unable to lead , but travelled well until taking it up, but was run down late on , but beaten only a few lengths . Good chance of leading today and this more benign track could make her hard to catch and worth a dabble at very long odds. Anything crossing The Irish Sea is worth a second look and I give preference to the improved Miss Amulet over Sussex Garden over this C&D .
¼ pt ew each On My Way @ 33/1 Miss Amulet @ 12/1 – why not , a small rev fc
2.15 PREMIUM RACE
2.45 PREMIUM RACE
3.15 Love turned The Oaks into a procession , but similarly to The Derby , was a strange race and was run to suit the filly , but it will be a shock if beaten today , but is 1/2 .
3.45 A competitive Class 1 for middle distance fillies named after the late and very great Sir Henry Cecil .Gold Wand did very well last time but this trip could be a stretch on breeding . Albaflora and Award scheme have strong claims but the nod goes to the lightly raced Lady G, a close 2nd at this trip last time and the winner has done well since .
½ pt ew Lady G @ 13/2
4.50 PREMIUM RACE
York placepot – ( missed out narrowly yesterday , only failing in the last leg , the selection agonisingly a close 4th – Dividend paid a whopper - £3700 !!
Selected Chester good to soft on this flat and very sharp track where low numbers in the draw have a clear edge
3.50 The clear form horse is the well drawn Iconic Queen and this prominent racer looks a most solid fav. Ground softest she’s ever faced but on breeding , should be fine.
¾ pt win Iconic Queen @ evens
4.25 PREMIUM RACE
4.55 Revich won well here last time out on similar ground and has been blessed with a good draw, but stiff penalty and longer trip pose a few questions . A few with clear claims in King Ragnar and Queens sargent have been very unlucky in the draw and I prefer the chance of track regular Gabrial The Wire who comes here in very good form and is well drawn . On a stiff enough mark and would want the ground to dry up a bit , but still a solid ew play . Tadleel is well drawn , in form and likes soft ground but this C&d could be a bit speedy .
½ pt ew Gabrial The Wire @ 13/2
5.25 At the weights the classy Spanish Mission has a clear advantage over some decent rivals and not badly priced considering how strong his chance is.
½ pt win Spanish Mission @ 7/4
6.00 Spright is the form horse and likely to take these along and take some catching . Mariance has good form but the wide draw a big issue .
½ pt win Spright @ 6/4
6.30 Gabrial The saint doesn’t win many but this track regular ran a cracker last time out from the worst of the draw here and looks a cracking ew bet from a good draw, on ideal ground and back to his best trip . Gabrial The Devil could make it a 1-2 for lucky Chester owner Dr Marwan Koukash .

7.00 Not a deep race and the well drawn and in form Lihou will take some beating , despite a modest win record .
½ pt win Lihou @ 7/4
7.30 Bossipop did really well here last time from a bad draw and over a trip short of his best. Much better drawn today and has both the trip and ground in his favour and looks good having a rare pop in Class 4.
¾ pt win Bossipop @ 7/4
