York Place 6 betting preview | August 18th

13.50 – Sky Bet Lowther Stakes (Fillies’ Group 2) – 6f

 

Dramatised has recorded an exceptional figure in both her victories to date and is probably the one to beat but MAWJ is also progressing very well and, having finished a good second in the Albany at Royal Ascot, she beat a good field in a Group 2 at Newmarket last time. With more to come, she’s a leading player. KINTA scored twice on the all-weather and ran well when second on turf debut in a Group 3. She has merit consideration here with more to offer too.

 

Selections: Kinta, Mawj

 

14.25 – Goffs UK Harry Beeby Premier Yearling Stakes (GBB Race) – 6f

 

REDEMPTION TIME placed in his first two starts and easily got off the mark at Bath next time. I thought he shaped better than the result indicated in the Norfolk, where he would have finished closer with a clear run, and has a good chance with the step up in trip sure to suit. I wouldn’t rule out REMARKABLE FORCE, who’s also ran well the last twice despite plenty going wrong and while he is forced to carry a big weight, this is slightly easier than last time and Rossa Ryan maintains the partnership too.

 

Selections: Redemption Time, Remarkable Force  

 

15.00 – Clipper Logistics Handicap (Heritage Handicap) – 7f

 

BLUE FOR YOU has been running so well in defeat in tough events since joining David O’Meara from Ireland and has twice finished runner-up over C&D too. From a good draw, he has sound claims of going one better. BASS PLAYER was narrowly denied on handicap debut last time and with his form working out well, he’s a huge danger, while TYRRHENIAN SEA shaped better than the result suggested in a Listed event on turf debut at Windsor and should be suited to this trip at this course. River Varian’s charge is very interesting indeed in a race that should see him to best effect.

 

Selections: Blue For You, Bass Player, Tyrrhenian Sea 

 

15.35 – Darley Yorkshire Oaks (Fillies’ & Mares’ Group 1) (British Champions Series) – 1m3f

 

ALPINISTA was second in this two years ago and has gone from strength-to-strength since, in which she’s won her last six starts. Four of this wins have come at the highest level and her form is working out strongly. This is a deep field but she brings the best form to the table and is fancied to maintain her winning sequence. At a bigger price, POPTRONIC is interesting upped significantly in grade and she has the potential to make her presence felt in this company for trainer Karl Burke, who’s had an excellent campaign with his team.

 

Selections: Alpinista, Poptronic

 

16.10 – British EBF & Sir Henry Cecil Galtres Stakes (Fillies’ & Mares’ Listed)

 – 1m3f

 

TIME LOCK looked badly in need of the experience on debut but she absolutely hosed up at the second time of asking at Newmarket, winning by seven lengths, and lost little in defeat when attempting to give 6Ib to Mimikyu when the pair fought out the finish last time. I think the winner benefited from the soft ground that day and I’m confident Roger Charlton’s charge will reverse the form in this race on much better terms. William Buick, who was in the saddle last time, maintains the ride and, from a nice draw now back on decent ground with loads more to come, this filly is great value. I’ll be gobsmacked if she’s not rated better than 90, which significantly underplays her ability.

 

Selections: Time Lock 

 

16.45 – OR8Wellness EBF Stallions Nursery – 7f

 

Clive Cox’ SCHOLARSHIP returned a very impressive winner on debut, showing a good turn of foot to beat a horse who’s won twice since and wasn’t disgraced when midfield in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot. He may have found that coming too quick after his debut but he’s been given a break since and this is so much easier. With the potential to rank higher, he is worth an investment here.

 

Selections: Scholarship
