2020 Ebor Festival Day Two Tips


Race 1 - Lowther Stakes Tips

Although she's yet to try her hand at six furlongs, I think Ken Condon's raider MISS AMULET has been overlooked here and warrants a good each-way punt.

Miss Amulet has won two of her five starts this season, showing plenty of five-furlong speed. She got the better of a very good sprinter in Frenetic to win a Listed race last time out, while also turning the tables on Measure Of Magic, who had beaten James Doyle's mount at Down Royal.

The way she travels through her races over five suggests she will be just as effective over six furlongs, and Miss Amulet offers plenty of value at 12/1.

Race 2 - Premier Yearling Stakes Tips


Vedute E/W2:15pm Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes (Class 2) 6fREMAINS 33/1
18+ only. Gambling can be addictive. Play responsibly.

Devious Company sits some 13 pounds clear of his nearest rival in the ratings and should be suited by this drop back in trip. He has, however, landed an inside draw which has proven to be unkind down the years, as has his chief market rival, Happy Romance.

Therefore, I'm inclined to take an each-way punt on one at a much longer price, and the one who appeals most is VEDUTE for Michael Bell. Having run well behind some decent sorts on his first three starts, Vedute finally got his nose over the line at Bath last time out. 

Cieren Fallon's mount finished ahead of Line Of Departure over six furlongs at Haydock in June, where he lost out to a rival now rated 100 by just half-a-length. I think he could be a cracking value bet at 33s.

Race 3 - Clipper Logistics Handicap Tips

Top Rank ran up to a stunning RPR of 111 when winning at Thirsk in June, and puts his unbeaten career record on the line here. James Tate's charge is, however, in with the deepest field he's ever faced, and I'm inclined to take him on with SIR BUSKER.

William Knight's handicapper has been very consistent this season, winning at Royal Ascot and running a blinder behind Motakhayyel at the July Meeting. Oisin Murphy's mount looked to be going well in the Golden Mile last time out but, as often happens at Goodwood, he failed to find a split in that large field and coasted home in eighth.

Sir Busker has proven continually this season that he can perform at his best under big weights, and Knight will have been pleased when his stable star landed a double-figure stall.

Race 5 - Galtres Stakes Tips

I'm really keen on the chances of VIVIONN in this Listed race, so I'm going to side with Moore and Sir Michael once again. Stoute's four-year-old progressed nicely in handicap company last year, before coming up just two lengths short of future Irish St Leger winner, Search For A Song in this race at last year's meeting.

On her only start this term, Vivionn followed Manuela De Vega and Fanny Logan home in the Pinnacle Stakes, and we all know how the form of that race as been boosted since. Black-type beckons for this improving four-year-old.

Race 6 - Nursery Handicap Tips


Star Of Orion4:20pm Sky Bet EBF Stallions Nursery Handicap (Class 2) 7f4/1 OUT TO 5/1

STAR OF ORION came to York last month on the back of a debut win at Newmarket. Under a penalty, Ralph Beckett's charge went down narrowly to Gorytus, who went on to finish fourth in the Superlative Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. Rob Hornby's mount carries top weight here, but seems a classy customer and should be able to cope.

Race 7 - Fillies' Handicap Tips


Dancing Vega4:50pm British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies' Handicap (Class 2) 7f4/1 OUT TO 9/2
New customers only. 21+ T&Cs and wagering requirements apply.William Hill is operated by WHG (International) Limited, a company registered in Gibraltar.

Anna Nerium's presence in this handicap leaves many horses looking very well treated at the weights. DANCING VEGA, for example, is the second highest-rated horse in the race, and will carry just 8-11 on her back. 

Ralph Beckett's filly produced a career-best effort on her return to action, running favourite Firmament close in a handicap here over course-and-distance, and can capitalise on her low weight now she's back in with her own sex.
