8:55AM ET - 13.55 Sky Bet First Race Special Handicap
#12 Amazing Red (12/1)
He hasn’t had a busy career with only six runs to his name and is progressing well. He was recently gelded and made a winning return at Newmarket after a short break. He settled better than ever in that race and has only gone up 4lb here.
9:25AM ET - 14.25 Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup Stakes (Group 2)
#9 Thomas Hobson (7/2)
He put in a great performance at Royal Ascot after winning the opening race and then nearly won the closing contest. He is dropping down in trip here but is unexposed on the Flat and I think there is more to come.
10:00AM ET - 15.00 Sky Bet City Of York Stakes (Group 3)
#9 So Beloved (8/1)
A super-consistent horse, who ran a cracking race at Goodwood last time out, only beaten a length by Breton Rock. He was locked up with nowhere to go in that race.
10:35AM ET - 15.35 Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes (Group 1)
#12 Lady Aurelia (pictured) (7/5)
Having won the Nunthorpe myself in 2011 I know it is all about speed and Lady Aurelia has just that. She won impressively at Ascot with no smacks required. She is versatile as far as tactics and ground goes.
