The third day of the fantastic Yorkshire Ebor Festival is in store for punters tomorrow and is expected to provide us with some more superb racing action.
The Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes is the feature of the day’s racing, with 20 horses expected to battle it out for Group 1 glory at 3.40.
Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes (Group 1)
Shea Shea and Sole Power will meet once again and are currently 7/2 and 9/2 respectively with Boylesports.
The former ran the better of the two at Meydan earlier this year when winning the Al Quoz Sprint, however the latter won at Ascot in June and the pair were evenly matched behind Lethal Force at Newmarket in July.
Shea Shea has proved he is good enough to beat Sole Power when at his best and may be the better option here, although Slade Power and Tickled Pink cannot be ignored and represent decent value. Moviesta is another who warrants respect.
Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Lonsdale Cup (Group 2)
The Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Lonsdale Cup is set to be a competitive renewal, with last year’s winner, Times Up looking to make it two victories in two years in this race. Ryan Moore takes the reins this time, however Ed Dunlop’s 7-year-old will need to improve on this year’s performances so far.
Simenon is the hot 7/4 favourite with William Hill, however Times Up had him well beaten last year and improvement on that is certainly needed. Colour Vision and Caucus were both behind today’s 4/1 shot Ahzeemah in the Goodwood Cup earlier this month and will need to run much better to reverse that.
Saeed Bin Suroor’s 4-year-old is the most consistent in the race so cannot be easily opposed, with a victory looking likely if he can improve a little.
Sky Bet Strensall Stakes (Group 3)
The Sky Bet Strensall Stakes sees some top quality horses going up against one another for the £42,532 prize winnings. The 3/1 market leader is Pavlosk, who won here back in May and has strong claims over this longer trip.
Brian Meehan’s Archbishop is an interesting contender at 5/1 with both Bet365 and Stan James. If he is at his best, a very big run is a possibility and he usually runs well back from a break. He has not run since September so a small bet could be a good idea.
Robin Hoods Bay is also expected to run well and has what it takes to win this, whilst Danadana won at this meeting in 2012 and beat today’s opponent Gabrial in May.
Winterlude leads the betting at 5/1 for the Sky Bet Stakes following his two wins this season, which include the handicap victory over Come On Blue Chip at Doncaster. Gospel Choir is sure to give a good account on his seasonal reappearance whilst Scatter Dice and Kiama Bay should run well.
Hanoverian Baron represents good each-way value at 16/1 with a number of betting firms.
Master The World and Red Galileo look to have good chances in the Sky Bet Mobile Convivial Maiden Stakes, whilst Dandana and Derbyshire are expected to run well.
The final race should be very competitive and is likely to cause problems for punters. Machete Mark will lead the betting although Majestic Moon and Hay Dude will not make it at all easy and warrant respect.
