Get all the info to bash the bookies as ITV’s Matt Chapman runs you through a busy Thursday
Day two of the International meeting at York and all eyes will be on super filly Enable, although she won’t be much of a betting price!
Luckily the ITV cameras don’t just show one race today but four, so let’s see if we can take a few quid off my friends at Sunbets once again!
The 1.55pm is a sales contest for 2yo over 6f, and there’s no doubt the one to beat is GREAT PROSPECTOR after his third behind Gustav Klimt in Group 2 company at Newmarket last time.
I saw this horse at the Fahey yard just the other day, and he’s progressive.
Matt Chapman’s TV tips
- 1.55 York – Great Prospecter: ‘Third in a Group 2 contest on his last start and he is progressive’ (add to your betslip)
- 2.25 York – Actress: ‘Not beaten far in Group 1 company and should go well’ (add to your betslip)
- 3.00 York – Victory Bond: ‘Back in handicap company and will have the race run to suit him’ (add to your betslip)
- 3.35 York – Enable: ‘Simply a superstar!’ (add to your betslip)
The Group 2 Lowther looks very competitive at 2.25pm, and can go to ACTRESS, who hails from the all powerful Aidan O’Brien stable with Ryan Moore on top.
Actress wasn’t beaten far in Group 1 company behind Sioux Nation at the Curragh last time. Should go well.

RACECARDS AND RESULTS
Don’t miss out on all the latest odds and tips for today’s meeting at Fontwell
For many the main betting race on ITV will be the handicap over nearly 1m at 3.00pm.
I’m going to have a few quid each-way on VICTORY BOND, who is back in handicap company here for William Haggas. This 4yo likes a big field and a strong pace to run at and gets that here.
Finally, of course, ENABLE runs in the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks over nearly 1m4f at 3.35pm. Nothing to say here other than enjoy watching Enable win. Maybe Coronet for a Johnny G forecast.
So best of luck once again in our search for Yeeehaaas. You Betcha!
