THERE was a theory a few years ago that Mark Johnston’s horses didn’t act at York but that has been turned on its head and the Middleham maestro can land the two-mile Lonsdale Cup with NAYEF ROAD (2.15).

The four-year-old is a stout stayer and won’t have to contend with Stradivarius, twice his conqueror at Ascot and Goodwood this season. The famous Hamdan Al Maktoum colours are everywhere it seems and Enbihaar fairly bounced off the quick ground at Goodwood when accounting for Cabaletta in the Lillie Langtry Stakes. John Gosden’s mare wouldn’t want too much ease underfoot in this stronger contest. Dashing Willoughby has won his last two races, at Newmarket and Sandown, and represents the Andrew Balding/Oisin Murphy combo.

The Johnston team have bright prospects of landing the opener with dual Newmarket winner ZABEEL CHAMPION (1.45), denied his hat-trick when beaten narrowly by outsider Junkanoo at Glorious Goodwood. Gosden takes the wraps off lightly-raced Alfaatik following a 455-day absence and market vibes should be noted.

MINZAAL (2.45) bids to lay down a marker as a classy juvenile by scooping the Gimcrack Stakes. The Owen Burrows-trained colt showed greenness on debut when behind re-opposing Mohawk King at Ascot but produced a scintillating performance next time at Salisbury when cruising clear in the manner of an exciting prospect. Yazaman was sent off a warm favourite in the Richmond Stakes at Glorious Goodwood but could never lay a glove on speedy Supremacy.

WALIYAK (4.15) was gambled into 13-8 favourite at Goodwood but probably gave front-running winner Chamade too much rope. Roger Varian's filly is weighted to turn that form around and may have more to fear from Asiaaf, also runner-up at Goodwood on his last outing.

At Salisbury, BURGUILLOS (4.25) can complete a four-timer in the amateur riders’ handicap. The top weight is well positioned in stall four and Alice Haynes’ 3lb allowance helps reduce the 4lb penalty Burguillos picked up for winning over course and distance last Thursday.

    Peanuts Perfection 2/1. Presque Isle Downs 00:15

    • recoba 8 months ago

      Screw it Crawmeister I’m with you on this! Single on Thirtypointninenine at 5/2 kept me in about it in the US but still down but as I’m up and yer shout looks good,that or 2nd fav but hopefully it’s not peanuts for us. GL

  4. Crawmeister 8 months ago

    I couldn’t tip a waiter. Even the tips I steal from the more informed, and pass off as my own, lose. Lol
    However, my Naps for Royal Ascot and York Ebor both won.
    After the Juddmonte it has been low stakes until the Ebor itself on Saturday.

    After backing Fujaira Prince to win at Royal Ascot I am staying loyal.
    The trainer had the Ebor Handicap in mind for the horse and was put away after the facile success at Royal Ascot. 10lb higher in weights but trainer believes more to come.
    Should be at least a bet to nothing at 7/1 Bet365 BOG. 3.40 Saturday.

    • recoba 8 months ago

      Great after tipping Peanut Perfection 😂🤷🏽‍♂️
      Nae worries it won’t bankrupt me.
      Again I like Alan Ts shouts he was a bit unlucky yesterday and I’m on ZABEEL CHAMPION at 15/8 with Skybets money back offer in the 1.45.
      Best of luck yoll 🇺🇸

  5. double carpet 8 months ago

    So will Love win the Arc?
    She was very impressive yet again yesterday but did she actually beat anything?
    5/2 fav is very short but she will be getting 7lbs from a 6yr old Enable and 10lbs from the older colts which will make their task very difficult.

    Today I’m taking a chance on

    Lauded 16/1 ew 2.45

    Only a neck behind Yazaman at Goodwood and the difference in price today is crazy based on that. The other factor is the ground. Won its maiden on gd/set and at goodwood it was gd/fm so might suit better today.

    BOL

    • uncle pom 8 months ago

      Enable wins the arc . The path set out last year was to much and this year she’s had a much easier campaign. The fact she’s been ridden from the back on every race this year shows they are not pushing her . Arc is the only aim for her this year, don’t think love is in the same league .

    • recoba 8 months ago

      Only a few showers at worst looking at weather for York Pom. I’ve him in a treble with Gamine and Tiz The Law(Kentucky 5th September) but if I had the plums I’d be on heavy again like last 2x but just had news our holiday to Portugal is back on 2nd of September so best stick with treble and no more JUST in case.
      Hoping I’ve the feet up with s beer in the Algarve watching Kentucky for my treble… Be nice!

      GL all today

      Good luck mate hope it comes in for you🍻, just voicing my personal view.

      Would love to see battash win but better on firm surface . A’ali would be my main concern.

  6. uncle pom 8 months ago

    With the rain today and the course being cut up all week think battash has it all to do.

    • recoba 8 months ago

      Awe of course Pom,it’s definitely a concern if the going changes. Love to see him win too even if I was in his last runs have been superb!

      We love the torment ! But great full to guys like yourself and others who can pick winners from the benefit of your knowledge and experience who don’t need to worry about the odds or what the market is doing to influence decisions. But even with limited knowledge you would be a fool to trust the so say market it’s no different than the in play odds where they have the time advantage and already know the winner before you but at the end of the day it is a game you against the bookie so why should they do you any favours I suppose from there angle they can’t give the money away with the larger odds always winning lol . Never mind it’s all good fun
