A brilliant day of racing yesterday at York with an excellent performance from Mishriff in the Juddmonte International. The feature race today is the Yorkshire Oaks. Snowfall is a short-price to continue her upward trajectory after landing both the English and Irish Oaks. We have two tips today and both of them come at York.


Tip 1 – 2.25pm York


A valuable sales race with twenty runners going to post. It is wide open and no stand-out contender on form. The one we like is Symphony Perfect. She took a little longer to get off the mark than perhaps anticipated but has progressed nicely after her initial few runs.

Her progression somewhat stalled at Newmarket in a competitive nursery last time but there were excuses. Losing her position early, she then travelled up nicely in to contention still on the bridle 2f out. Repeatedly then short of room, the field compacted and she got a number of bumps including a sizeable one and lost all chance. Once rebalanced she finished off her race nicely and with her a clear run would have been much closer. That form, admittedly, is nothing to write home about. Nevertheless, that run can be upgraded slightly.

Prior to her Newmarket run, she was only narrowly beaten in the Super Sprint at Newbury. She was a big price that day and only her strongly-fancied stablemate got the better of her. That race has also produced various winners. She has experience of a big field handicap and hopefully she can resume her progression today under similar conditions.


2.25pm York – Symphony Perfect 1pt each-way 14/1 (5 places) general


Tip 2 – 4.45pm York


Our second selection comes in the fillies’ listed race at 4.45pm. Not the strongest listed and it has an open feel to it. We like the look of Cabaletta at a generous looking price.

She is now back in listed company for the first time since winning at this level at Newbury last year. Cabaletta ran deplorably at Goodwood; that was a strange race to watch overall. I’m hopeful we can just draw a line through that and on the basis of her penultimate run at Haydock, she looks overpriced.

That was a creditable run at Haydock and arguably 2f out she looked the most likely winner. She had to make her challenge wide and away from the action. There was no shame in going down to subsequent Group 1 winner Alpinista in that contest. If Cabaletta runs to that level today, then she will hit the frame at least.

She is versatile in regards to ground and hasn’t had too many chances on decent ground. Her listed win last year did come on good ground too. 12f looks to be her optimum trip and she can go well under these conditions.


4.45pm York – Cabaletta 1pt win 16/1 general (some 18s available)
