There has been plenty of exciting action on track in the first two days on the Knavesmire, with Baaeed putting in a spectacular performance in Wednesday’s feature race, and sensational mare Alpinista claiming the win in Thursday’s Yorkshire Oaks.



1:50pm – Class 2 Handicap


Charging Thunder is narrowly preferred to Thundering in this contest, with both horses representing yards performing well at the Ebor Festival this week.


The former, trained by David O’Meara, is 1lbs higher for his second-placed finish behind Pride Of Priory in the Shergar Cup Challenge.


He has previously run well at the track and has Ryan Moore aboard here.


O’Meara saddled the first, second and fourth in yesterday’s 3:00pm handicap, and with the stables performing well there is plenty in the four-year-old’s favour.


Kevin Ryan saddles the largely unexposed three-year-old Thundering in this contest.


Interestingly, he also finished second to the aforementioned Pride Of Priory when last seen, on the all-weather at Newcastle.


He received plenty of weight there with a 5lbs claimer aboard and is 2lbs higher in ratings this time out.


The yard saddled 22/1 winner Bergerac in the opening race of the meeting on Wednesday, and came close with the well-bred Queen Me in Thursday’s Lowther Stakes.


Both Charging Thunder and Thundering are capable of storming to victory in this competitive field and should go well at decent prices.


1:50pm York – Charging Thunder 1pt win @ 12/1 (best price – 6 places, 11/1 generally) & Thundering 0.5pt E/W @ 10/1 (best price – 6 places, 9/1, 17/2 in places)
