WHAT a day we had on Friday with Winter Power storming to victory in the Nunthorpe at 9-1. Now bring on Saturday!
Read on for our man's top tips for the Knavesmire.
TRIBAL CRAFT (3.35 York, nap)
She can continue Andrew Balding’s rich run of form. She has looked better than ever this season and was an easy Group 3 winner over course and distance in May.
She didn’t enjoy dropping in trip at Haydock before relishing a Glorious Goodwood stamina test behind Wonderful Tonight last time. She looks on a fair weight and David Probert can steer her home.
WALIYAK (2.40 Sandown, nb)
She never runs a bad race and had lots in hand when winning a Haydock Listed contest over this trip last time.
It was testing that day but she is better on firm as she showed when third in the Kensington Palace at Royal Ascot.
MARSHALL PLAN (2.25 York, treble)
He is crying out for this step up in trip after some solid efforts over 1m4f.
He was beaten less than a length when leaving it too late at Newcastle last time and James Doyle takes over today. He can have this Team Gosden runner a bit nearer the pace and use his stamina.
