York Ebor Meeting Day 2 preview

 YORK DAY 2 A little success on the opening day but only enough to keep us going into Thursday. We go again with a little more confidence... 1350 Lowther Stakes Strong G2 2yo fillies' race to start the programme. Dramatised looks the obvious fav after winning the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot but leave me out of her at even money in this field.

R1 1350 Sky Bet and Symphony Group Handicap So let's kick off with a nice, easy 22 runner sprint! 9/1 the field at time of writing so obviously cases to be made for many. Line up a couple and don't go overboard in the first of 28 races for the meeting. Dakota Gold won this race off 104 back in the pre-pandemic era in 2019. Last year he tried his luck in the Nunthorpe and wasn't disgraced, now he's back to big handicap level which is ideal for him. He has won six from 12 at York, and his jockey Connor Beasley is king of the spri
