Jason Weaver: I’m weighing-in behind this 16/1 value play at York

The Weaver Shark tries to hit the bullseye with Wafy at a big price in the 3pm.

Jason Weaver


13:55 Liberty Beach @ 7/4

Is an absolute rocket juvenile and she proved that with an explosive display at Goodwood last time when short of room and a vital stage, she showed all the guts and determination needed to take another step forward. Her jockey Jason Hart has proven himself at Group 3 level on a few occasions this Group 2 contest is the biggest opportunity of his career.

He has the physical ability now it’s time to pass the mental test.

14:25 Fleeting Prince @ 12/1

Charlie Hill’s colt looked really good when winning a competitive contest at Windsor and after was stepped up dramatically in company to contest the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood. He was keen early on but looked dangerous before getting blocked in the run and the jockey was forced to completely down tools. I’m not saying he would have won, but the finishing position doesn’t tell the whole story.

He’s a massive price in an open-looking 6f sprint.

15:00 Wafy @ 16/1

Was put in his place last time by Qaysar at Newbury, but the winner got a dream run through whereas the selection was waiting for a gap as the tempo increased.

He’s out of a very good mare who has produced a few decent runners and they all improve with age.

A handicap rating of 90 is an attractive mark, he’s well drawn and has a low weight.

With Paddy paying 5 places he could be the second leg of a massive each-way double for the trainer.

3:35 Enable @ 2/7 

She meets old foe Magical again and we look set for a fascinating match-up. She’s massively long odds-on but we all love a Champion and hopefully she can keep her unbeaten record intact. If you really want to have a bet on this, it could be on the distance Enable wins by – look for a winning margin of around 1.5 lengths, if the price is right.
