ITV Racing Tips for televised races at York's Ebor Festival on August 19

The ITV cameras are rolling at York again on Friday, August 19 and we have got a tip for each of the televised races at the stunning Ebor Festival to help you beat the bookies.

Once again, there's a bumper day of action for the cameras to feast upon, with five big races live on ITV on Friday.

You can see all the latest racecards and results from York by using the Planet Sport live centre, but first let's have a quick look at Friday's selections.

ITV's televised races, Friday August 19

13.50pm Sky Bet Stakes

14.25pm Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup (Group 2)

15.00pm Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Gimcrack Stakes (Group 2)

15.35pm Coolmore Wooton Bassett Nunthorpe Stakes - Group 1

Selections for all races at York on August 19

13.50 Cormier

14.25 Stradivarius (non-runner)

15.00 Marshman


16.10 Reel Rosie

16.45 Salt Lake City

17.20 Bay Of Honour

13.50 Cormier

Talented dual-purpose performer Cormier is of clear interest in the opening Sky Bet Handicap.

Brian Ellison's inmate won comfortably on his return from a break at Chester three weeks ago and an 8lb hike does not look insurmountable for a horse who has already won over the course and distance.

14.25 Stradivarius (non-runner)

Stradivarius will miss Friday afternoon's Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup at York due to a bruised foot.

The eight-year-old was due to bid for a fourth win in the race and a seventh victory overall on the Knavesmire after pushing Kyprios all the way in the Goodwood Cup last time out.

However, trainers John and Thady Gosden declared the son of Sea The Stars a non-runner just before 6am, leaving a field seven to go to post.

15.00 Marshman

Marshman gets the nod in the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Gimcrack Stakes for Karl Burke.

The Spigot Lodge handler has a strong band of juveniles on his hands this season and this Harry Angel colt has reportedly mixed it with the best of them on the Middleham gallops.

What he has done on the racecourse has been pretty exciting too, with an introductory win at Ayr followed by a wide-margin victory under a penalty at Thirsk just last week.

Given the ease of that success, the quick turnaround is not a major concern and another bold bid is anticipated stepping up to Group Two level.


Royal Aclaim can complete her ascent to the top of the sprinting ladder with victory in the Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe Stakes at York.

James Tate's filly lowered the colours of Perfect Power on her debut at Newcastle back in May 2021, but had to sit and watch from the sidelines with injury as Richard Fahey's colt blitzed his way to a plethora of top prizes later in the season.

It was her return from a 382-day absence that served as a reminder of her talent, turning a Bath novice contest into a procession, to win by an unchallenged three-and-a-quarter lengths.

That dominant display earned her a step up to Listed class in the City Walls Stakes over this course and distance last month, where she put several smart sprinters - including last year's winner of this race Winter Power - to the sword in impressive style.

The daughter of Aclaim faces another big rise in grade to Group One level, of course, and on the face of it conceding 22lb to a rapid juvenile in the form of The Platinum Queen looks a tall order.

But Tate has made no secret of the regard in which he holds Royal Aclaim and she is expected to justify that faith.
