You didn't think we'd leave you without some more information on our three main mahoosive priced picks from York did you?

13.50 York - Just Fine

Just Fine by name and Just Fine by nature for the Queen in the Sky Bet Race To The Ebor Jorvik Handicap.

Ryan Moore gets the leg up on the Sea The Stars four-year-old who can put in a better run than his odds suggest. A second last time out at Salisbury on soft going was no disgrace at all.

Anything around 11/1 is worth a squeak for this Sir Michael Stoute runner in the regal purple, red and gold silks.

14.25 York - Mr Wagyu

Named after some of the most sought after beef in the world, Mr Wagyu can make mincemeat out of the Churchill Tyres Handicap for John Quinn.

A course and distance winner who goes well around York, the seven-year-old sired by legendary Aussie sprinter Choisir can go close under Jason Hart.

Any price North of 10/1 should be looked at with Mr Wagyu liable to outrun his odds.

15.00 York - Garrus

Charles' Hills Garrus has gone under the radar in the face of entries by Minzaal and Dragon Symbol but shouldn't be underestimated in the 1895 Duke Of York Clipper Logistics Stakes.

Only touched off by a short head in the Abernant at Newmarket in April, and can go one better with a smoother passage.

Ryan Moore up top is a big tick and odds of 9/1 or above should be lapped up for this classy combination.
