York’s Ebor meeting, which is now into its final day, is a highlight of the racing year in this neck of the woods. An annual pilgrimage for many punters.
There’s no doubt the feel of the meeting has changed since its switch from three days to four to incorporate Saturday.
But the quality remains. Twenty-five races, and not one worth less than £40,000 this year.
Whether your bag is top-quality Group races, richly competitive handicaps or two-year-old contests unearthing the stars of the future, you’ll see it all on the Knavesmire this week.
In response to many requests, I am posting my selections for every race over the four days. These will not be tips for the sake of tipping, but the horses I am backing as a semi-professional punter.
In races where I am keen on more than one horse, alternatives in brackets are given to the main selections. I am aiming to have each day’s advice posted by midnight the previous night.
Day three yielded another profit, courtesy of ABSOLUTELY SO and PALE MIMOSA. Hopefully you pocketed some each/way money too from EXTORTIONIST and EXTREMITY.
Here are my selections for Saturday which, of course, is Ebor Day. Good luck!
