Race Favourite

Previous race winner LORD GLITTERS is at the head of the market for the 2020 renewal of the Strensall Stakes at York.

He is a current 7/2 quote to add to his 2018 success* (betting odds taken from Coral at 22:01 GMT on Friday, 21st August 2020).

He struck back into some fine form where he claimed third in the York Stakes up at the 10f distance in July.

It’s likely there is going to be even more improvement from the 2019 Queen Anne Stakes winner as well after his two efforts since return. He has leading claims and could be tough to knock over in this contest.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

DARK VISION looks to be right on the top of his form at the moment. He is still progressing well and is looking better as a 4 year old actually.

It has had two wins in his last three runs, collecting the Hunt Cup at Ascot and a Listed Pontefract score. He didn’t even get the cleanest of runs to win at Pontefract. He’s likely to be in the places.

We are going with CERTAIN LAD to get in the mix as well. He does look to be in some of the best form of his career at the moment.

In his penultimate run, he only found one too good in the John Smith’s Cup and was second again on his next trip, a Group 3 Haydock run.

Race Favourite

The favourite for this testing handicap is FAVORITE MOON at a current 11/4 quote* (betting odds taken from Coral at 22:01 GMT on Friday, 21st August 2020). It’s been good stuff from William Haggas’s runner this season.

Favorite Moon got a win under his belt on his last trip, battling Subjectivist at Haydock 48 days ago to get that score.

There is still plenty to come from him by the looks of it and he hasn’t been that harshly treated by the assessor, taking on just 7lb more

UK Racing Odds & Tips

MIDNIGHT’S LEGACY has won both runs this season. He is still making strong progress as well with each race track appearance.

He won’t mind a little bit more in the trip, or at least he shouldn’t. Midnight’s Legacy has been away for a couple of months, but that’s three straight wins for him and he’s getting better as well.

A STAR ABOVE is another to seriously consider for this one. He is taking on extra in trip as well and is another wonderfully progressive horse.

He just missed out on a hattrick on his last appearance but left it a little too late to challenge Mambo Nights. Still, A Star Above is a horse in form and warrants massive respect.

Race Favourite

Lining up as the current favourite for this cracker of a race is ONE MASTER at 7/4* (betting odds taken from Coral at 22:01 GMT on Friday, 21st August 2020).

She hit top form last time out with a Goodwood victory in the Oak Tree.

She was really streaking at the finish as well in the Group 3 race.

The trip is absolutely ideal for her and with the conditions softening up at the track after rain, then this is even more in her wheelhouse. One Master is likely going to be tough to beat.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

THREAT warrants some appeal here because he is dropping down in class. That’s notable because he has been trying to make headway up at Group 1 this season, but has been unsuccessful there.

But he was the Gimcrack winner at York last season and may well enjoy a return in this company.

We also want to have a look at last year’s winner SHINE SO BRIGHT, who is far longer in the market at 14/1 than he was when winning from a 6/1 SP twelve months ago* (betting odds taken from Coral at 22:01 GMT on Friday, 21st August 2020).

But he has come back into form just at the right time it would seem at least, and there is likely going to be even more to come from him after a third-place at Newbury’s Hackwood in July. He seriously warrants a look for a defence.

Race Favourite

FUJAIRA PRINCE is the current 6/1 favourite for this popular race at the York Festival* (betting odds taken from Coral at 22:01 GMT on Friday, 21st August 2020).

Either way, he is going to be a key player in the contest.

He returned after a year away from the track to appear at Royal Ascot and score the Copper Horse.

He has been kept away from the action as his connections have a clear focus on the Ebor. Fujaira Prince does get a hefty 9lb rise to deal with after his success.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

TRUESHAN looks to be another of the frontrunners for the win in the Ebor on Saturday. He started to really step into his own at the back-end of last season and he has been sharp since returning as well.

He showed a nice bit of grit to win a close contest at Haydock on his last effort and the extra quarter of a mile in this one is likely to play into his hands.

This is such a good field. We have to consider VERDANA BLUE who is unexposed on the flat, but the brilliant mare has the turn of speed to handle this drop in trip. There’s a claim there from her for sure.

Another that we will look for in this big field is PABLO ESCOBARR who took a very nice step in his last run, scoring a Group 3 win at the Glorious Goodwood Festival in July.

This will be his first test at this particular distance, but he’s a wonderfully game runner.

Distance: 5f

Race Favourite

The race favourite for this minimum trip is BEN MACDUI at 5/2* (betting odds taken from Coral at 22:01 GMT on Friday, 21st August 2020). He got off the mark at the first time of asking, winning his debut at Hamilton.

Ben Macdui followed that up with a big jump to Group 3 action at Goodwood and took second. He looks to certainly bring some leading claims to the table in this fixture.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

Another of the leading contenders for the juvenile contest is ACKLAM EXPRESS. After a promising debut, he has won back to back races,delivering on that promise.

Those were wins in a Hamilton novice and then on his nursery debut. Big claims and he has plenty of scope for even further progress as well.

Landing a third in the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood was LAUDED who is likely to be in the mix for this York trip.

He has mixed it up in some very good company in the Coventry Stakes as well, a run which can be excused. Having handled Group 2 company last time out, he should be a contender.
