York betting: Botti’s charge can seal Yorkshire Cup glory

| 16.05.2014

It’s the final day of York’s Dante meeting and the Ladbrokes News team are aiming to finish on a high note with three more selections across the card.

Our NAP comes from the competitive Group 2 Yorkshire Cup, while we also look to solve the Marygate Stakes and the lucky last.


Marco Botti’s stayer was extremely impressive on his re-appearance at Ascot in the Grade 3 Sagaro Stakes last month and despite a penalty can go in again here. The seven-year-old’s rider, Andrea Atzeni, will be full of confidence after picking up a winner on Dante Day onboard Ambivalant in the Middleton Stakes but Group 1 winner Seal of Approval and Gospel Choir, who beat a strong field in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket earlier this month, look the dangers.


After watching Richard Fahey’s filly get her juvenile campaign off to a winning start with a comfortable victory at Yarmouth last month we are keeping a close eye on her and she should go close in the first at York. Despite missing the break, the two-year-old put in a good performance to win comfortably under Ryan Moore, who takes the ride again today, at the Norfolk track and more is expected from her in this 5f dash.

Lively Longshot – ADVENTURE SEEKER – 5.00 York

Ed Vaughan’s three-year-old is bred to stay this 1m 4f trip and we are backing him to reverse his Beverley form with Innocent Touch.On better terms, the Irish raider can give punters an excellent run for their money in the lucky last.
