It seems as if Corgi has been around for ages but it’s only his ninth lifetime start and he already has a very solid level of form. His ascot run behind Baghdad is rock solid and has already been franked this season.

He’s had a wind operation and the team have already picked up a decent prize with Marmelo first time out so Corgi should be ready to roll.

York 14:25

Great Prospector is becoming a bit of a cliff horse for me but I looked back at his recent run over 7 furlongs at Haydock, when he travelled like the winner throughout before his stamina packed in.

Back down sprinting over course and distance, at which he already boasts some solid form, can see him belatedly get back to the winners’ enclosure.

The added bonus is he is drawn in the middle so can choose which side to go.

Yafta is the Mr Consistent in this line up along with the red hot favourite Invincible Army. Yafta’s off another cracking return at Newmarket when squeezed full room at a vital stage and has to be called a touch unlucky.

It looks as if there will be a burn-up on the front end and he can come and land the spoils late on.

York 15:35

I looked back at Sparkle Roll‘s recent win at Sandown carrying a 7lb penalty and it gets more impressive with each replay. Big, rangey and full of talent, she looks tailor-made for a galloping track like York.

Currently trading at around 16/1 for the Oaks at Epsom, that price will be slashed if, as expected, she comes up with the goods in the Musidora.
