York is smashing. The City walls, Clifford’s Tower, York Minster – niche indie rock band Shed Seven and it’s still legal to kill a Scotsman within the ancient city walls – but only if he is armed with a bow and arrow.
Our crack team of racing tipsters have never murdered anyone but Mick Fitzgerald, Turftalk Tom, Paddy Power and our racing trader are looking to make another killing on day two of the Ebor meeting after Idaho (5/6f) and Postponed (15/8f) doubled up for a nice 5/1 return on Wednesday.
Thursday features another spectacular day of racing with the 1m 4f Yorkshire Oaks the highlight at 3.40pm. And while the nap selection in the 2.30pm Fair Eva won’t be a working man’s price, the winner of the 1m handicap certainly will be, as we look to keep winners coming on the Knavesmire.
