FINAL Classic clues and top-class racing are the feature on Bafta-winning ITV Racing this week.
We kick off with the Musidora fixture that takes centre stage on terrestrial tv this Wednesday.
ITV show four races, starting with the 2.20pm, a handicap over nearly 1m 4f.
Eight are set to go to post, and I need eight as I want to have a few quid each-way on the confirmed stayed TUFF ROCK trained by Ed Walker.
He ran well last time and will be hard to keep out the frame provided he handles the ground.
Next up is the 2.55pm, a handicap over 6f. I will go each-way DANZENO with 1-2-3-4 places up for grabs.
Danzeno was once rated up to 115, but goes here for Mick Appleby off 102. If he gets away on terms he has a great chance to get a place at least.
He also has the added bonus of Frankie Dettori in the saddle – everything is setup for a big run.
Matt Chapman’s TV Tips
2.20 York – Tuff Rock: ‘Will stay and looks hard to keep out of the frame’ (add to your betslip)
2.55 York – Danzeno: ‘Slipped right down in the handicap’ (add to your betslip)
3.30 York – Harry Angel: ‘No doubt the best horse in the race by a mile’ (add to your betslip)
4.05 York – Ceilihds Dream: ‘Showed some decent form at Newmarket last time’ (add to your betslip)
The big sprint of the day is the Group 2 Duke of York over 6f at 3.30pm.
This race sees the return of top sprinter HARRY ANGEL, and although he has to give weight away he’s going to be very hard to stop for Clive Cox and Adam Kirby.
He won twice at Group 1 level this season and should be far too good for his rivals on his return.
Finally, it’s the Group 3 Musidora over an extended 1m2f at 4.05pm.
At face value this is a very weak renewal, but the one horse who could be a bit special is CEILIDHS DREAM, trained by Ralph Beckett.
She showed some decent form at Newmarket last time and her trainer knows a good one when he sees one.
So best of luck and hope for Yeeehaaas. You Betcha!
