13:50 York – Alflaila

Was an excellent second to start back at Newmarket behind Mighty Ulysses, and ALFAILA then stepped up dramatically for a smooth success at Pontefract in Listed company. They may well change tactics slightly as the speed-favouring nature throughout this week’s racing will see him sit a little more forward.

14:05 Sandown – Grande Dame

GRANDE DAME has built herself a pretty impressive profile in only four races to date and has particularly strong form at this venue. She’s off the back of a very smooth success last time and continues to climb up the ladder and onto better company.

14:25 York – Al Nafir

Will need to have improved off the back of a second place last time to take care of the likely favourite, and stablemate of AL NAFIR, Wild Crusade. The latter has taken a huge hike in the handicap for an easy success last time. But the selection remains well treated and can give Frankie Dettori something to smile about.

14:40 Sandown – Defence Of Fort

Was mightily impressive on his racecourse debut at Ascot, with DEFENCE OF FORT winning by a wide looking 4 1/2 lengths. He is a big, rangy, individual, and the fact they choose Sandown, with the uphill finish, will really help his knee action and galloping nature.

15:00 York – Rohaan

The 3pm at York is the first race of Saturday’s free Paddy’s Pick 5 competition, where there’s £/€25k up for grabs. I’m backing ROHAAN, who flew home late in the day up at Group 1  level last time and for all the world looked as if this extra half a furlong was within his grasp. He’s  been a major success story for his connections winning back-to-back Wokingham’s at the Royal meeting and can make his mark at this higher level.

15:35 York – Raymond Tusk (each-way)

Another race, another tip for your Paddy’s Pick 5 plays. Unlucky in this race a couple of seasons ago, RAYMOND TUSK has been knocking around in the top level handicaps for the last few runs over a mile & half, suggesting that with a return to this trip, the extra two furlongs will be bang up the street. He’s going to fly under the radar of a massive double-digit price and rates an each-way play in one of the most open looking Ebor handicaps I can remember.

16:10 York – Royal Scimitar

The final race of ITV’s coverage and I’m going for ROYAL SCIMITAR. He returns of a massive layoff, but is one of only a few who looks as if he has a bit of wiggle room from his current handicap mark. Also his ability to go well fresh is a positive. He’s well drawn as all of the action has been towards the far side rail this week – so he can shift left-handed and sneak in behind the pace. This is another race in Saturday’s Paddy’s Pick 5 competition – so good luck!
