Day Two at Doncaster's St Leger Festival is headlined by two excellent Group Twos. Talented juvenile Inspiral is odds-on to win the first of those, the May Hill Stakes, so we're going to focus all of our attention in the historic Park Hill Stakes, which was first handed out at Doncaster back in 1839.

We've taken a look through the betting for this year's renewal of the Park Stakes and picked out our best ITV Racing betting tips.

John Gosden will be hopeful that Free Wind can hand him a fourth victory in this fillies' race. Having won a couple of maidens, Free Wind finished second to Golden Pass in the Aphrodite Fillies' Stakes, before claiming her first Group Prize in the Prix Minerve at Deauville last month.

A pair of Listed winners follow close behind, with both Save A Forest and Yesyes giving up St Leger entries to make an appearance in this Group Two. Save A Forest was last seen landing the Chalice Stakes, while Yesyes fought off future March Stakes winner, Dancing King to win the Chester Stakes.

Given they have a nine-pound weight for age allowance on their side, you'd think that three-year-olds would be dominant in the Park Stakes. Yet, only two of the last 11 editions of this race went the way of three-year-old, the other nine being won by four-year-olds.

Four-year-old Silence Please makes the trip over from Ireland, while Golden Pass has already beaten Free Wind when giving her plenty of weight this season. Eileendover also represents the four-year-olds, having bolted up in a handicap on her last appearance.

Tribal Craft was well-backed for the Ebor on the back of a strong second behind Wonderful Tonight at Goodwood, and ran fairly well to place ninth. Urban Artist also boasts some strong form, with Ed Walker's Glenartney rounding off the field.

This betting heat might be dominated by the three-year-olds, but I don't think any of this year's Classic crop of fillies - barring Snowfall - look that strong, and given the dominant record older horses have in this race, I don't mind taking the youngsters on.

The value bet could be GOLDEN PASS, who made all to beat Free Wind in the Aphrodite Stakes, when giving exactly the same amount of weight away to Thursday's favourite.

Hugo Palmer's filly was then backed into second-favouritism for the Geoffrey Freer Stakes and tried to win from the front again, but once the likes of Hukum, Rodrigo Diaz and Pablo Escobarr launched their assaults, Louis Stewards' mount had no answer.

Although this Group Two is technically a classier race than the Geoffrey Freer, this looks a drop in quality compared to that excellent contest, which has already produced two winners. Golden Pass loves quick ground and James Doyle - who gave her a cracker when winning at Newmarket - returns to her saddle.

Verdict

Golden Pass has already beaten Free Wind this season, and she drops back in with her own sex having been beaten in a very good renewal of the Geoffrey Freer last time out. She looks a solid each-way bet at 9/1.
