Potential 2017 Classic colt confidently napped on Ebor Day 3

| 19.08.2016

We’ve made it to the third day at York’s Ebor meeting, with the ground up north nice and quick after some seasonably sunny weather.

Up to 10 Price Boosts a day on selected horses help to enhance the Ebor experience, while extra value can be enjoyed thanks to Best Odds Guaranteed PLUS.

Here’s how BOG+ works: Price taken at 3/1, Returns 7/2, Paid at 4/1!

Since the start of May, over £2m and rising has been paid out on additional winnings!

Here are a few potential profit harbingers to boost that Friday feeling:

NAP – 16:20 – Via Serendipity

The horse breaking from stall two has taken this in two of the past three years and that’s just where Hugo Palmer’s newcomer has been drawn.

Palmer thinks so much of Via Serendipity that the colt has entries in Newmarket’s Champagne and Dewhurst Stakes this autumn, meaning we could see him contesting Classics next summer, with a bit of luck.

The market has spoken, so expect a fine run on debut under this season’s Epsom and Irish Derby-winning jockey Pat Smullen.

NB – 14:30 – Quest For More

This 2m slog will ebb and flow, with a few sure to be competitive, including tissue favourite Trip To Paris, but there’s plenty to like about the chances of Roger Charlton’s six-year-old.

Quest For More placed in two runs around York earlier this summer, before claiming a creditable sixth at Glorious Goodwood over practically the same trip as this Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup, on similar good-to-fast ground as is likely to come up on the Knavesmire.

Lively Longshot – 15:40 – Easton Angel

The 5f, Group 1, Nunthorpe Stakes is something of a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pin-pricker, with 20 nags aged between two and nine set to line up.

It tends to go to runners with a bit of weight taken off, with four of the past six winners carrying between 9-6 and 9-9 to victory.

Only six horses squeeze into that category in this renewal, with last year’s triumphant trainer Michael Dods saddling two of them – Mecca’s Angel and Easton Angel.

The latter looks set to go off at a markedly bigger price, so gets our longshot nod under Frankie Dettori.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
