WHAT a 3 days we’ve got in retailer at York.
The racing seems to be prime notch and I am hoping the punting ought to match on Day 1 of the Dante assembly.
First up I am throughout CORGI (York, 1.50) who is about for a giant season for Hughie Morrison.
His type as a three-year-old was superb. If you happen to take out his final begin the place he travelled nearly as good as any, however ran out of steam up 1m6f, he seems to be nicely able to some massive pots.
After profitable on handicap debut at Sandown, he was a slender second to Baghdad at Royal Ascot, earlier than one other second to Soto Sizzler at Superb Goodwood. Baghdad is now rated 104 and Soto Sizzler has been mooted as an Ebor horse.
He was well-fancied within the Melrose, however as above, simply did not get house that day regardless of taking the attention.

Back down in trip here, and after a wind-op, he looks set for a massive run at a solid price.
I can’t understand the price of First Eleven, who has also undoubtedly improved, but is 3lbs worse off with Corgi from when behind Morrison’s colt at Ascot.
Corgi hasn’t been the most convincing in terms of attitude and may well have won a couple more races already had that not been the case. But the talent is there and I’m banking on the wind-op and a long winter to have done the trick.
Next up, is arguably my bet of the day – INTISAAB (York, 2.25).
He looks a smashing each-way bet for the flying David O’Meara who I reckon will have a couple of winners this week at York.
He’s a horse that can be tricky to place, high in the handicap but not quite a Group horse.
Last, but not least…
Finally JAMES STREET (York, 4.05) is a lesser fancy, but still worth an each-way nibble later on the card.
I like the booking of Oisin Murphy who has started well with Hugo Palmer this season.
He’s largely been going on the all weather, but has won two of his four goes on grass and his third on All Weather Champs Day has been massively overlooked in this.
It looks the right time to step back up to seven, and he’s another I like at a big price.
I’ll also be backing SPARKLE ROLL (York, 3.35) providing she’s not a silly price on the day. She’s a filly I really, really like for John Gosden.
But dropped to 104 he’s found a bit of wiggle room again and York is a track he goes very well at – form figures of 122 over C&D.
I’ve by no means picked an easy race, 22 runners hurtling over six furlongs, but this eight-year-old is a model of consistency and was unlucky at Ripon last time out.
He has seemingly been priced up with his Meydan runs in mind as well, but if you take Dubai with a pinch of salt as I tend to do, I can’t see him out of the places and the current double figure odds make huge appeal.
